Bringing cleaning eating and a modern farmhouse vibe to Redding, a husband and wife are bringing great food and community to a new restaurant. Scheduled to open in November of this year, I partnered with Mimi Grace to design and style a recent dinner party. Bringing together friends and family, we celebrated the evening as we sampled menu items for the opening. This paper suite combines clean black and white with slight touches of kraft paper. Unlike bridal suites, this suite is simple, minimalist, and gives ode to the restaurant in a fresh concept. (We firmly believe modern farmhouse can be said without shiplap and jars everywhere.)

Keeping things balanced we decided on four simple pieces to anchor each place setting and convey their message for the evening. Using repeated icons and smart type contrast, the suite is cohesive and modern. With the simple touch of a miniature clothespin and a postcard with the image of a foggy farmhouse, the suite came together with ease and gave the night a semi-formal vibe.
For the place cards, we used kraft paper with slits for a fresh sprigs of rosemary, adding an additional moment of greenery to anchor the place setting.
Check back tomorrow for the full styling details of the dinner.
