Okay, so hear us out. We know we always talk about how great the people in Arizona are (they are literally some of the best people in existence). Lauren Kelp is no exception even though she may live in Chicago currently. When we first met Lauren, it was actually on the day of her Tablemakers event. Our friend Constance put together a yummy, intimate dinner for a shoot with Spoonful Magazine at our private property (the original Tremaine Ranch) and had the great idea of putting me in contact with her pal, Lauren Kelp. We heard about Lauren and kind of felt that we would instantly want to be this gal’s pal. Lauren is the type of person who is vibrant, innovative, creative and can make you laugh until your stomach hurts. She runs a beautifully curated lifestyle blog that keeps it real to her core, and we applaud her for this. She is our kind of person and we are SO glad that Constance made the connection for us. Lauren was searching for a beautiful event space to host one of her events through Tablemakers. Tablemakers is this brilliant dinner party, that embodies the belief that entertaining is supposed to be a celebration; an idea that we are 100% supportive of. We communicated over email for a couple of weeks, and when they day of the event arrived, and we met Lauren for the first time, it was as if we had been friends forever. Lauren, along with Ashley Cooper & Constance Higley, are the incredible humans who put on these celebrations of friendship and community. It’s not wonder that this beautiful, simple, and truthfully authentic dinner party was featured on Style Me Pretty. We had the best time and look back to these pictures when we are feeling overwhelmed by work and life. It is great to know that special moments can happen in the simplest ways, with the best people, if you let them. If you’re not following Lauren, Ashley or Constance, we advise you to do so.
