Welcome to Create Dinners!
Whether you're here to feast your eyes upon photos from our previous dinners, getting inspiration so you can host your own event, or applying to join us at our next dinner, we're glad you're here.
Create Dinners are quarterly gatherings where 16 creatively-driven women, most of whom have never met before, come together and share a meal, conversation, and inspirational experience. Every single attendee brings something both literally and figuratively to the table, and the night's success, from the tablescape to the food to the entertainment, relies upon the group's collective efforts.
We started as a dream that Kate Edwards had from long ago (read more in the Meet section) that came to fruition in May 2016. She sent out an email to several of her creative friends, asking if anyone would be interested in helping with a dinner by contributing their creative talents for free, and in return, receive images that she'd shoot for their personal uses on blogs, websites, and social media. Everyone was on board, and on May 22, the first group of seven gathered together for Dinner No. 1.
The night was more than we could have ever hoped for and almost immediately, Dinner No. 2 was in the works. The Dinner No. 1 attendees reached out to other creative friends to see if they would want to come to bring a creative offering... and they did! After another amazing dinner, we realized that the opportunity to attend one of these gatherings needed to extend to anyone who shared the same creative ambitions and mindset -- acquaintances, friends or strangers.
Anyone may apply to attend and fill one of our open seats by sharing what creative contribution they'd like to make. For those who want to surround themselves with creativity, and take their intimate gathering to the next level, Create Dinners offers partnerships.
See you around the table!
