Farmers Markets are in full swing by May, and we took full advantage by traveling around Atlanta to source the meal. We shared with our guests where the fresh produce came from and challenged everyone to shop local and taste the difference. We desire authenticity in life through relationships, work and service. The same standard can, and should, be set for our food. Here's a look of the evening focusing on the meal. For the full recap, please visit Pilgrim Creative. Enjoy!

Last month we were blessed with a memorable night full of laughter, thanksgiving, and of course, a seasonal meal. You may have already seen the amazing Homespun ATL video captured by Los Filmmakers, if not check it out. They documented the process of preparing for the evening.
We gathered with a new group of friends and strangers to share a harvest meal at the industrial studio of Matchstic in Grant Park. Jason served up course after course of "autumn delight", the arrangements of Juli Vaughn lit up the room, Mao's inspiring freehand chalk art inspired the guests... there is something to be said (and experienced) when we get to create from the overflow of our heart...it's raw, organic and imperfect, yet beautiful. Here's a look at the evening through the eye of Whitney Huynh. We hope to see you at the table soon!

Last month we hosted a Harvest Dinner at Matchstic Branding. We gathered around the table to share life, and it's blessings over a wholesome meal.
We had the guys of Los Filmmakers film a behind-the-scenes look at the evening. You can see their eye for detail...and we love how they captured the table through a time-lapse. They are truly talented in their craft. Juan + Christian: thank you for delivering such quality!
Homespun ATL is not just an opportunity to dine but rather to break bread and share life. Come and be inspired. The next gathering is Sunday, December 9.
Homespun is a "Simple Gathering" that brings people together over a local inspired, wholesome menu. Homespun visits local markets that determine our dishes. We believe this invites guests to support our local community of artisans and farmers.
We enjoy being able to share our passion and creativity with others, and makes a “Simple Gathering" so much more than well, simple. In fact, we aspire to create an environment that will act as the canvas for the true meaning behind our dinners-to share life and break bread.
