Lark Pop Up Dinner with Chef Kyle Powers

We were fortunate to host not one but two Lark Pop Up Dinners this month! 

We found ourselves on night two of our Pop Up Dinners with Lark still high from the vibrational foods from the night before, yet still hungry! This also marked our 4th Pop Up Dinner with beloved Chef Kyle Powers of Fork in the Road Catering. 

We flipped the room for the event by adding bold pops of color starting with a custom yarn hanging that was suspended in the front window welcoming our dinner guests from the street. Bright, whimsical brush strokes of resident artist Ali Rybczyk covered the walls and set the tone. The tablescape was a mix of jewel tone hues with floral arrangements from Floral Fete with a gardenesque mash-ups of scabiosa, geum, protea, aloe, pomegranate, and oregano. Vintage wine goblets remained full all night.
