Last Sunday I had the great pleasure of attending an apple cider pressing party and luncheon at Bird Haven Farm. Our friends who own this beautiful property know how to throw a Rustic Chic shindig, complete with a local country band, fabulous guests (including John Dransfield and Geoffrey Ross; the incredible ceramicist Frances Palmer; uber landscape architect Thomas Wolzer; and outdoor furniture wizard John Danzer of Munder-Skiles). Delicious food, good conversation, and meeting new people, not to mention the deliciously fresh apple cider pressed from the farm’s apple orchard made for a terrific time. Sometimes it’s Rustic Chic to press your luck.
