Last weekend, we had a fabulous time partnering up with family and friends at Pearson Farm for a delightfully southern farm-to-table dinner party, or more properly termed in the south, a peach supper. For those of you in Atlanta, you've probably seen Pearson Farm peaches at the grocery store, one of the many farmer's markets, or gracing seasonal menus at top local restaurants. Simply put, their peaches are the best. Biased? Maybe. Carlyn's sister and brother-in-law are Lawton & Lanier Pearson...the farmer and the farmer's wife. On a girl's trip in Atlanta, Carlyn and Lanier decided it was time for Camille & Gray and Pearson Farm to get together and throw a peach party! If there is one thing Camille & Gray loves...it's a party.
The setting is simply indescribable. We set up hors d'oeuvres and drinks on the grounds of the Lee Pope house, a beautiful, renovated southern farmhouse surrounded by rows upon rows of peach trees. For the actual meal, we walked next door to a rustic, old farmhouse with a screened-in porch overlooking the farm, with a very legit farm table. We made 3 lovely arrangements incorporating all of our favorite flowers, fresh peaches, apples, and figs.
We had so much fun down at the farm with family and friends. Thanks to the Pearson family for hosting us and to Carlyn & Lanier's mom, Carla, for contributing her culinary skills, as well as designing the best antipasto tray this side of the Mason Dixon line. Next time you throw a party, keep Camille & Gray in mind. We know how to kick things up a notch!
