As I curled up with my Fall Magnolia Journal, I came upon their article talking of soup gatherings. A simple meal for your dearest friends to gather and enjoy each other's company. The whole mission is to create a standing date of soup, gathering and quality time No fuss ! I of course don't mind a little fuss so I decided to create a lovely tables cape to accompany my launching of the monthly " Soup Sioree" ( yes I gave it a name). I have so many incredible friends and wanted to mix up my group a bit and grab some of my most dynamic. I have 3 girlfriends coming over for lunch tomorrow. One is a fine art photographer, one a self made bad ass attorney with her own practice and another attorney with the most impeccable home decor taste I have ever seen! Just interesting, cool, funny ladies. Some of us know each other better than others and some not at all. Love that part! I can't wait to see where our conversations lead.
I am prepping an easy Ablondigas soup which is hearty and all things yummy. I created an airy table filled with Fall feels yet kept things coastal like I love. I topped my layered grass cloth and striped runners with straw chargers and beaded plates that we received as wedding gifts. I love how simple pieces can be refreshed over and over. I added more texture with a simple plaid patterned napkin and an adorable vessel for our soup. For my runner, I grabbed pumpkins from our porch and foliage from our yard to bring nature in. I added Hearth and Home pieces to make things personal and warm.
Cheers to amazing, inspiring, funny friends!
