a spring gathering at the atelier

Last weekend I invited my dear friends Signe, Sif and Renée for a spring gathering in Amsterdam. Unfortunately Nora and Laura had to cancel at the last minute, but in June we'll be reunited in Sweden!

It all started Friday morning when Renée arrived at my place. We brainstormed about what to cook for our gathering on Saturday, but also for dinner that night. After making up our minds what to make - that truly was hard, we had a million ideas! - we went shopping at our favorite spots. In the afternoon we paid the atelier a little visit to prepare the table and setting for Saturdays gathering.

We got home just in time to welcome Sif and Signe for a spring dinner. We popped the prosecco and ate all the good food Renée and I had prepared. Soon I'll share the recipe of spring risotto we made, filled with spring veggies like peas, green asparagus, fennel, courgette and loads of fresh herbs!

Saturday Renee and I did some final shoppings in the morning (like getting the best croissants in town at Le Fournil), before heading to my atelier. We'd set the table already the day before, so the only thing we had to do was fill it with good food and wait for our friends to arrive and eat! And so we did, it truly was a gorgeous gathering, we had so much fun together, I can't wait to meet up again with all of you again.

Ps, a special thanks to Pantoufle for the lovely table linen and plates.
