Last Saturday night, I was invited to a friends’ farm for a fun summer night dinner party. My friends live outside the city limits on a few acres of land. They have chickens, pigs, fruit trees, gardens and are looking forward to eventually adding goats. It was so much fun to be on the farm and enjoy the summer night among new friends.
The tables were set with plates and cutlery that while mismatched, went together beautifully. The dahlias were grown on the farm and hay bales were used as bench style seating on one side. I loved the way it allowed people to come and go and mingle throughout the night. Dinner was homemade pizza made fresh throughout the night in the pizza oven on the patio with loads of fresh salad greens dressed lightly followed by dessert of ice cream with bramble berry sauce and the kids made amores in the pizza oven fire. Between dessert and dinner, I snuck away from the table after the sun had set and took a few photos from the garden.
These pigs were so fun to watch as they ate and played before heading to bed. The smaller brown pigs are 8 weeks old and all of them will eventually get to be 300 pounds each!
