Around the world on the 11th of October, guests sat down to enjoy intimate meals in beautiful settings inspired by the concept of 'Wabi Sabi' meaning 'messy' or 'imperfect'. We were beyond delighted to host Auckland's interpretation of the Kinfolk Global gathering in our ivy-clad courtyard at Mondays Wholefoods. Today I share this beautiful short film captured by Side Project and lovely photos by Greta Kenyon Photography.
We created a rustic and beautiful wholefoods menu for the 20 guests who attended, and thanks to all the volunteers we were even able to enjoy the evening ourselves.
Please see below a list of the clever and talented people who were involved, including local suppliers whose products helped to create an absolutely lovely evening.
