As I shared yesterday, my collaboration with gift-giving extraordinaire Simone LeBlanc was something we were so excited to create, and are now so excited to share. Incorporating our favorite elements for fall, the Simone LeBlanc x Jenni Kayne Woods Gift Box is all things warm, woodsy, green and soothing. Naturally, our luncheon celebrating the collaboration felt much the same. Hosted for our friends at Domino, the laid-back get-together was held on an appropriately cool and rainy day, and brought the cozy vibe of our gift box to life. Featuring a menu from Annie Campbell all about earthiness, greenery and the spicy notes of fall, alongside elegant, understated florals from Moon Canyon and inspired touches from Simone herself, our get-together was all things autumnal, and the perfect way to launch our partnership. See below for all the menu and decor details. XXJKE

THE MENU –Annie Campbell
A meal showcasing the flavors of fall, featuring ingredients found in the woods. For inspiration, Annie drew upon memories of her Oregon childhood, of days playing in the woods and foraging ingredients central to Pacific Northwest cuisine – berries, hazelnuts, mushrooms and wild greens – with her mother. The result: a menu perfect for a cozy day indoors.
