It has taken me a bit longer than normal to get my wrap up done, but here are the photos and sponsors from Hidden Feast, “Fall”. Hidden Feast are charity curated dinner parties in the Canberra region to raise money for the  NICU Foundation. The next (and FINAL!!) event in the series is scheduled for 2018 (keep an eye on our website for details!).

This charity holds a special place in my heart, having had my darling daughter have an extended stay in NICU when she was born 11 weeks premature. The foundation is a local charity that raises money for medical equipment, research and nurse education to help give the ACT and Southern NSW’s critically ill newborn babies, the best chance to lead healthy, normal lives. In addition to this, the foundation provides comforting equipment for parents and families including additional breast pumps, entertainment equipment where families can watch television in a relaxed environment and all the furniture to enable a parent’s overnight stay. These are all the simple things that can make such a difficult time a little bit easier. For more information on the foundation, please see the Hidden Feast website.

With Hidden Feast, is more than a long table dinner party, it’s where friends and creatives come together to curate a unique dining experience. Our  Fall event was held at Mount Majura Vineyard located in the heart of Canberra. Upon arrival, guests were treated to a sunset wine tasting, sampling many of the incredible Mount Majura wines made from the very vineyards we stood in. As the sun went down, we shuffled guests to the fire where they enjoyed a burnt rosemary and fig cocktail by Juniper Bar & Cocktails and canapés by Aaron Teece of Studio Neon.

The table was styled by our amazing stylist (and photographer) Lean Timms using wares kindly donated by Ecology and Sauvage Urbain. As usual, Fionna Tammin of Peony N’ Pearl created beautiful floral arrangements to adorn the tables. I especially love the arrangement for the bar (see below!).

After canapés and cocktails, guests were tucked into a cosy table, wrapped up in blankets and were wined and dined for the evening. Everyone was sent home with gifts from Song of Oya,  The Tea Nomad and salted caramel popcorn rocky road made by yours truly (do you want the recipe?).

We are so lucky to have such a stellar group of sponsors of whom without, the event would not be possible. All of these partners offered goods, time and passionate support of Hidden Feast and the NICU Foundation, I couldn’t be more grateful. I am delighted we have many on board for our next feast being held May 6 2017, and I can’t wait to work with them on a special Autumn themed dinner party for our guests. I hope you enjoy the photos, thank you for reading.
