    Midwest Living Magazine the Secret to Laid Back But Lovely Dinner Parties

    We recently had the opportunity to host a creative collaboration for Midwest Living Magazine.  The focus of the story, in the current print issue (Mar/April 2017) was simple entertaining with a small group of friends, based on Megan Gilger’s tips for creating “Lovely-But-Laid-Back Dinner Parties“.

    The collaboration included The Fresh Exchange husband and wife duo Megan & Mike Gilger, Sarah Peschel of At Home in Suttons Bay and Epicure Catering co-owners Andy Schudlich & Cammie Buehler. Andy worked to develop a menu that was approachable for a home cook, yet beautiful in its presentation. Cammie teamed up with Sarah & Megan to style the details of the tabletop aesthetic.

    As the overarching goal of the shoot was to illustrate how to host a laid-back gathering of friends (delegate!), care was taken to create a scene that spoke authentically to an elevated simplicity of the everyday. Cherry Basket Farm provided a rustic backdrop while greenery, white china and soft pastels brought in the crisp vitality of Spring. Photographer David Tsay captured perfectly the charm and warmth of the space and meal, and overall the shoot was a glowing success.

    We are thankful and grateful as always for the chance to work with such incredible people. Thank you all.
