We're all about gathering and celebrating.. which is exactly what we did a couple of weeks ago with a simple backyard dinner to thank everyone who is part of Nourish and Nest and Nourish Creative. I truly am grateful for each and every one of them.. and hey, any excuse for a party right?
Marissa took a simple communal table in our backyard and styled it up beautifully. Candles, greenery, wood and glass.
Event Lighting Hire weaved their festoons through our hedge and kiwi fruit vine and strung their new drop lights over our table.
We drank a Summer tea cocktail (recipe below) whilst we ate around one of Nicole Reay's signature grazing tables. Once we sat down, she fed us spinach wontons, crab and quinoa fritters, lamb and haloumi skewers with tzatziki and prawns with lime aioli on brioche rolls. Delish.
Thanks to Hindsight Images for the photos.
Hope you all have a chance to gather with those you love and appreciate too!
Summer Tea Cocktail
(disclaimer.. this is a very loose 'recipe', no exact measurements were made!)
Brew a pot of our 'Refresh' tea (lemongrass, ginger & lemon myrtle) and chill in the fridge. Mix it with mineral water, freshly squeezed lime juice, a splash of pineapple juice & dry ginger ale and vodka to taste/preference. Serve chilled with a stick of cucumber.
Fresh, light and summery.. enjoy!
