Supper Club

Happy Friday, friends! This week flew by and I feel like it was just Monday yesterday and I was sitting on the back porch lounging with my husband. No complaints for a quick week from me, though! I'll take a Friday any day :) 

My friends and I are going to start a supper club now that everyone has graduated and we're all in the same place again. (Hallelujah!!!!) We are going to meet twice a month, if our schedules allow. One time just the girls and one time with our favorite fellas :)

My table only seats four...and there are six of us to start with...so I need to figure out a plan to squeeze everyone in. BUT where there is a will, there is a way! And I'd rather have a kitchen full of chairs and TV trays and whatever else, than a kitchen that is empty and quiet. Because chairs and TV trays means friends are there and memories are being made and relationships are being cultivated. And that makes my heart sing.

I also have never cooked for six, so that shall prove to be interesting I'm sure. I need to spend some time on Pinterest figuring out some fun dishes to make. Is it obvious that I'm excited to have Supper Club with my favorite people? After reading The Nesting Place and currently in Bread & Wine, my heart has been moved  to swing my front door wide open and welcome people in. To pull up chairs and gather around a table. To fill my home with laughter, good conversation and good people.


If you're in a supper club, I would love to hear any hosting and food ideas that you may have! I can't wait to get this started with my best gals and guys and hope that in 20 years we're still gathering around tables with each other!

Oh and if you have any tips on how to wrangle a crazy pup while hosting supper club, throw those my way too ;) Speaking of crazy dog...I present to you, Murphy The Nun.


Go have a good weekend, folks!

  1. Lindsay, boy are you in for a treat! My group of friends started doing supper club back in November and we have met faithfully every month! It is such an absolute joy to see my dearest friends each month for good food and fellowship! The way we do it is we switch hosts each month and the hosts always make the main dish and provide dishes. Everyone else either brings a side, dessert or drinks. We made a Facebook group so that we could make sure we all knew who could make it that week and what they were bringing. We usually always have a sort of "theme" just for fun! Once we did Italian, then taco night and one night we had an Oscars Party and all brought hors d'oeuvres! It is so much fun and my hubs and I look forward to it each month! I know you and your friends will be so blessed by this! Make sure and take pictures!!!!
