We went to the most beautiful backyard dinner party last night in Palo Alto- a rehearsal dinner for our friends who are getting married this weekend. Tables were set up under a big persimmon tree and there was a taco truck! Inspired by a thyme crown I saw on Luisa Brimble’s gorgeous Instagram feed, I made a fresh thyme necklace, simply by tying sprigs together with thread, then wrapping the ends with twine. I garnished the necklace with some succulent flowers (which do well out of water). The savory aroma around my neck was subtle and lovely- an herbal perfume. With some leftover thyme, I decorated a bottle of my favorite Feast wine with dehydrated orange and pomegranate as a little gift for the hosts.
