LoveFeast Weekend Celebrating Around The Table

Remember way back before Christmas?  Kristin and her husband came to Minnesota for our end of year business meeting.  Besides a bit of work and some meetings, we were celebrating.  We finished out the year strong!  We met our goals for 2012 here at our blog, LoveFeast Table and at our online boutique, LoveFeast Shop!

Almost any time we have together tends to be celebrated around the table.  Looking back on our stream from Instagram.  You can see as we celebrated we nibbled around town and at our own table.  Here’s a bit of our LoveFeast Weekend December 2012.  Kristin and Devon flew in late.  My husband, Todd was flying in at the same time, so they just drove home together. While they were on their way, I prepare a little treat to greet them with.

We ate dinner at the Nordic cuisine inspired restaurant,  The Bachelor Farmer in Minneapolis.

We met up with some of our Minnesota blogger friends {Kelli ~ Love Well – Allison ~ O My Family} at Icehouse.  We hadn’t seen them since our amazing sisterhood weekend in the woods last September.

And, we made a feast at home.

Or should I say, our husbands did.  We lit candles,

made a table runner {DIY Tutorial coming soon!}, and did our New Year’s Greeting Vlog while they worked their magic in the kitchen.

This. Was. Divine.  Butternut Squash Soup with bits of caramelized shallots, candied & spicy bacon and heaven.

Spinach salad with Pear & Pomegranate Vinaigrette, red onions and juicy pomegranate seeds.

It was beautiful and delicious.  Pan Seared Lamb Lollipops slathered with Black Berry Thyme Relish on a bed of Bacon Risotto served with Todd’s famous roasted Brussel Sprouts.

This is why the four of us make a good team.   Creating both the decoration for the setting and the flavors for a feast is something we’ve been doing for a long time together.  We all fall into our place.  We savor every moment.  We made memories again together.
