Dinner in the Apple OrchardPhotos by Nancy Neil

Remember when I was scouting for the location for this shoot? You can check out the full entertaining story online at Flutter Magazine right here, or you can pick up a copy at these stockists or you can buy a print copy of magazine online right here. This was the kind of shoot where everything fell together perfectly in ways that couldn’t have been planned.  A big thank you to the amazing Nancy Neil for the insane photos and the to die for food by Paper Palate.

The signature apple drink  by Paper Palate was a serious hit.

The Menu:

Garden Carrots, Green Olives and Radishes with Bagna Cauda

Roasted Late Summer Tomato Soup with Herb Pesto Oil

Roasted Two Day Salted Whole Local Chicken

Pumpkin Tacos

Okra & Tomato Salad

Stuffed Baked Apple with Melted Cheddar Cheese

The table itself had a beautiful galvanized finish and is available for rent from Vintage Vignettes. Each place setting consisted of  gorgeous plates from Anthropologie, a hand painted menu by Rebekah Miles, glassware from Upstairs at Pierre Lafond, vintage flatware, and napkins by Rachel Craven.

I used pre-made loose weave ribbon around candles and tucked in millet, wheat, scabiosa, and astrania instead of doing a traditional flower arrangement. Flowers can be purchased at Fabulous Florals.

Pumpkin tacos, check out the recipe here.

Local Cambria Estate Wines paired perfectly with the menu.

I found these short tumblers from Upstairs at Pierre Lafond and I knew they’d be perfect for our baked apple dessert.

Dig in! Thank you to all the contributors and Flutter Magazine! I’ll be posting some behind the scenes action on Wednesday.

I’m super excited to announce the latest Flutter Magazine is out online here and in PRINT out today (I will be getting my hands on a copy within the hour, check me on Instagram @kellyoshiro if you want a peek). I have two things in the magazine, a farm to table dinner shot in apple orchard (remember this backstage post?) which you can check out HERE. Shot by Nancy Neil with food by the Paper Palate (um, pumpkin tacos anyone?). Cambria Wine generously provided libations.

My second story was a cute little DIY for making dried confetti flower petals shot by Arna Bee. Kim the editor of Flutter, Joy of Joy de Vivre and I had fun playing confetti tossers… check it, HERE. I’ll be posting the full scope soon and THANK YOU to everyone who contributed.

Backstage: On Set with Flutter Magazine

Last week I showed you some of the prep that goes into a photo shoot and this week I’m giving you a peak into what’s involved on set… Tricia Fountaine was awesome enough to provide tables for the dinner (how cute is her prop warehouse?). Upstairs at Pierre Lafond loaned me some beautiful pieces for the table and Danielle from Paper Palette put them to good use holding her seriously delicious food. Cambria Winery generously provided libations and Danielle’s signature fall cocktail was outta this world. Don’t you love the resourcefulness that comes for shooting at a ranch, car/plating station anyone? And up top, the sun setting over the ranch.. that’s a wrap folks! Stayed tuned for the PRINT issue of Flutter to drop in October!
