Meaningful Dining with Cleobella x Lark
It’s always about the people you meet along the way. As we bid farewell to our beloved boutique space, Cleobella hosted a dinner party in collaboration with Lark. Take some tips for an elevated dining experience from our founder, Angela O'Brian.
Food and Fashion Go Hand in Hand
"I’m very sensitive energetically, and I believe in the value of creating meaningful experiences when all the senses are thoughtfully curated. The smells, the community, the atmosphere, they all raise the vibrations. I believe food should be equally beautiful and delicious and should awaken all your senses. This is why I’m so excited to partner with Lark as I know we share the same values."
Dinner is a Family Affair
"I’m the chef and my husband does the dishes:-). Our daughter, Indigo, loves to cook with me. She also loves to set up a beautiful table…she has such an eye for creativity and she thoughtfully designs our dinners with fresh flowers, candles and our handmade Cleobella block printed napkins. We bake together because we love dessert!"
Eat with the Seasons
"Our backyard is an edible garden. We grow herbs like sage, lavender, rosemary, and thyme. I visit our local farmers market on Sundays with the kids and pick out what’s fresh and that helps determine our meals for the week. I enjoy making soups and I love to use spices from our travels. We recently made a curry soup using spices that our team in India sent us. I’m not much for using recipes, I’m a lazy chef….I throw it in…cook for taste and serve"
In a heartfelt farewell to Cleobella's beloved boutique space, the collaboration with Lark transformed the evening into a seamless fusion of food and fashion. Founder Angela O'Brian, a visionary, emphasized the importance of crafting experiences that elevate the senses, aligning perfectly with Lark's shared values. The event celebrated the familial essence of dining, with Angela, her husband, Jim, contributing to the warmth and authenticity of the evening. Angela's commitment to seasonal, locally sourced ingredients and her spontaneous, taste-driven approach to cooking underscored the brand's embrace of imperfection and handmade beauty. As the boutique closed its doors, the collaborative dinner became a poignant reminder that the heart of any experience lies in the connections made and the shared joy of beautifully curated moments.
