A Fall Farm to Table Dinner

I wanted to share one of my favorite editorials from last year's  La Petite Fashionista Mag Issue #2, a farm to table dinner shot at my boyfriend's family farm. Almost all of the dinner's ingredients- from the onions straight from his mom's garden to the wine served with dinner  (from Wollersheim Winery, in case you were wondering)- were produced locally.

I remember the day we were supposed to shoot- it rained and rained and rained. Luckily it stopped for 30 min at dusk- just long enough to capture a beautiful dinner with the perfect moody fall weather to set the tone for our farm to table dinner (and let me tell you the meal was amazing post-shoot!)

I am so lucky to live in Wisconsin and literally have thousands of cheese options in the grocery store. I also try to shop local for produce as much as possible to support local farms! I had so much fun designing this shoot, from the DIY'd kraft paper placecards to the menus I designed for the occasion.

To see the recipes from the shoot & download your own farm to table dinner invitation be sure to check out La Petite Fashionista Mag Issue #2: Sweater Weather!  It's the perfect excuse for fall entertaining.
