Dinner Party

Keller TX Photographer

“Food is the toffee-toasted mortar that binds people together, building stronger friendships that, when stacked sky high, create the most special of gatherings.” — Kinfolk

There are few things I enjoy more than a great meal surrounded by the people I love the most. For some time I have wanted to throw a dinner party and feature it on Jessi’s Kitchen. For me, a dinner party symbolizes all the things I love about food.  I love the satisfaction that comes from creating recipes that encompass a specific vision, setting and mood.  I also find such joy from watching people enjoy the food and time together around the table. My desire for this photoshoot was to create a very fresh and clean family style meal and to emphasize produce that was in season in January. 

I had the privilege of collaborating with my friend Lillie, a very talented photographer in Texas. We had been talking about doing this for quite some time and it was a dream come true for me to work with her. So here is a peak in to our dinner party shoot and all recipes are linked in the menu at the bottom of the post.

  1. These pictures are absolutely beautiful. I love the entire set up and the food looks fabulous. It also looks like the participants are having a good time as well. Excellent diner party!

  2. Thank you so much! It was a super fun project. I do little dinner parties but I rarely do full decor with menus. I hopefully will start doing more though!
