Have you heard of Kinfolk Magazine?

Until very recently I had not, but when I got invited to a Kinfolk {Durban} inspired party a few of my friends were throwing I suddenly realised what I had been missing out on…

Kinfolk is “a growing community of artists with a shared interest in small gatherings. We recognize that there is something about a table shared by friends, not just a wedding or once-a-year holiday extravaganza, that anchors our relationships and energizes us”

For us, the Kinfolk dinner was a gathering of friends each bringing something to the table, from food to music to inspiring decor. We’ve seen the beautiful pics all over pinterest, so instead of just repinning, we recreated and held our own beautiful get together…

Our Durban Kinfolk dinner was held in the courtyard of the Bean Green Coffee Roastery  (Have you been? Mel has won multiple awards for her coffee, so do make it a priority a stop by there asap)

I was instructed to make a pie (my first time!) and it was a total success. Will post the recipe for my Cherry Berry Pie up asap so you can give it a try too! It was so delish (if I might say so myself…)

Derryn was there too capturing everything in photos. Derryn has a great way of capturing people in their natural beautiful selves (no freezing up and stiff smiles when she’s behind the lens).

All above pictures by Derryn Semple Photography. More pics of the evening here.

Charity Sarah also brought her video making skills and made an awesome little vid of the evening! Check it out below!
