Sing a Song of Seasons: a Celebration of Early Autumn
$135.00 / Sold Out
In the other gardens
And all up the vale,
From the autumn bonfires
See the smoke trail!
Pleasant summer over
And all the summer flowers,
The red fire blazes,
The grey smoke towers.
Sing a song of seasons!
Something bright in all!
Flowers in the summer,
Fires in the fall!
- Robert Louis Stevenson
A celebration of the changing season, join us for an evening feast at a magnificently restored antebellum farmhouse, located in the charming Village of Waterford. We will gather outdoors around a table brimming with the season’s best; a cheese & charcuterie (and accoutrements) spread of local delicacies to be passed around and enjoyed with good wine, and even better conversation. This gathering will highlight the beautiful bounty of the season, the simplistic flavors and colors of early autumn, and “sing a song of seasons! Something bright in all! Flowers in the summer, fires in the fall!”
Imagine being nestled among the vegetables gardens with chickens underfoot and a pasture of goats nearby, slowing down and cherishing the fleeting warmth of early October days, feasting on the season’s (and region’s) best, sharing a meal with new friends. I hope you’ll join us at the table and around the fire.
I first learned of this 1820 farmhouse back in February, when I happily discovered it while browsing online, and subsequently spent a winter weekend there with three dear friends. We spent our time indoors, cozied up around the wood stove, amidst the tastefully curated antiques and the most well-equipped kitchen. I am now eagerly anticipating sharing this hidden gem with you, in an entirely new season.
For this dinner, we’ll be gathering outdoors (weather permitting), celebrating the final days of al fresco dining.
