When there is a chill in the air, there is nothing better than sharing a dining experience over brunch or lunch with family and friends. Fortunately for us, we found the perfect occasion to do this at a recent photo shoot to launch the Bleu Home homewares range with Ivy and Bleu Events.
Bleu Home, the newest venture from Mandi of Ivy and Bleu Events, is an online homewares store curated for your home, for your family or for the perfect gift. The store features the most divine ceramic mugs, linen napkins, cutlery, plates, dried blooms and more!
We met with Mandi in the garden of their family homestead located in the Scenic Rim to create a bespoke shared dining menu experience. The rustic garden table setting was created using crusty long baguettes, jars of green olives and a platter of light pink Tarama spread with vibrant trout pearls, lemon and dill.
Three main dishes were shared between this gorgeous family.
Oiled silver sardine fillets, red onion, caper, leaf
Lamb shank, baked carrot and winter brussels
Large rustic spinach quiche with a fluted edge
To create the fresh table feels we scattered figs, trussed cherry tomato and ruby tamarillos. The rustic farm table look was completed by scattering delicate motley quail egg shells and olive tree leaves.
The table features Bleu Home table linen, plates, cutlery and candle holders. Whether you’re adding something to your homewares collection, or hosting a small event or dinner party. Shop the Bleu Home range or follow along on Instagram.
Let us take over your kitchen and show you the very best menu design, innovative food and service. Our two and three-course At Home Dining menus have been specifically designed for 10 people and offer you the chance to reconnect with your family and friends over the coming weeks.
Our food has always celebrated all that is fresh and contemporary and our menus follow the seasons. Collating the freshest ingredients found locally in Brisbane and surrounds – you can handpick your choices from any of our menu options. After all, your event is unique, so the menu should reflect your tastes. If you have a special theme, let us create something bespoke for your special occasion.
As we continue to adjust to new ways of viewing gatherings and spending time with one another, we have implemented additional precautions so that everyone at a Wine & Dine’m party can confidently feel protected.
Our event menus and service styles have been adapted accordingly and we are pleased to continue to offer our seated and shared dining menu options (and grazing tables). Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns regarding menu styles and service.
