BLOG POST 9 / WHERE WE'VE BEEN & WHERE WE WANT TO GO

They say never look back. But, it's Thursday. And that means TBT all day!

For us here at DWF, the nostalgia of this most holy of social media days comes with a purpose. We're looking back on our first dinner party for inspiration to move us forward. It was still about 100 degrees at 7 p.m. that summer evening when our dearest friends gathered in a backyard in Clovis to support our little dream. And it was perfect. We realized that night that, yes, this is what we want to do. We want to create beautiful gatherings. Bring people together in conversation, friendship and creativity. Explore the magical, fleeting little world that is a dinner party, where so many parts of life converge for just a few hours before scattering to the wind. 

So wherever the inspiration might be hiding -- in the fold of a napkin or the flicker of a candle -- we're going to find it. We may be glancing in the rearview, but the car's in drive and our foot is on the gas. 

Cheers!
