Strawberry Moonlight {Harvest Dinner Series}

Even a rainy evening couldn’t put a damper on a spirited dinner party in celebration of June’s full moon, which is all too perfectly known as the “Strawberry Moon.”  Coordinated by Sarah of Juniper & Dash and documented by Alexandra Whitney Photography, the amazing local vendors that put together this “Strawberry Moonlight” dinner  {the third and final feature of the Harvest Dinner Series…see the twilight peach and starlight pumpkin features here!} focused on showcasing the sweet strawberry in a fun and creative way, at which they certainly succeeded!  Triple Fresh, yet again, created an absolutely sumptuous strawberry infused menu, and Kati Mac Floral Design’s lush centerpieces (we adore the burlap market totes!), accompanied by mason jars, dish towel napkins, and pints of strawberries embodied a fresh, farm-to-table feel – just the thing for an early summer dinner.  Despite the rain, guests were able to sit under the lights at the ever so lovely Faunbrook Bed and Breakfast (with the protection of a fabulous clear tent!) and enjoy good food and good conversation, which is what the best times are all about, aren’t they?
