Says Kelly, “To really highlight the abundance of the area, Karen and I shot at a local dahlia farm, Greenwell Floral. I then used these same dahlias for the dinner table.”

From Kelly: “Dinner took place at Todd’s parents’ home which has a stunning lemon orchard. Ashley Transki from Duo Events, a local farm to table catering company, made lemon saboyan for the dessert from the lemons on the property. Lemons were also used as additional decor on the tables.”

Ashley created a dinner menu inspired by the best seasonal and local ingredients: American Cucumber & Three Carrot Salad, Roots Farm Green Salad, Spot Prawn & Stone Crab Fettuccine, Jimenez Farm Leg of Lamb, and Rustic Peach Pluot Tart with Lemon Saboyan.

    Good day! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I
    could get a captcha plugin for my comment form?
    I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having trouble finding one?
    Thanks a lot!

    Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old
    daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her
    ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell
    someone!
