We had the good fortune of connecting with Nicole & Adrienne Infante and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Nicole & Adrienne, let’s start by talking about what inspires you?
We are inspired by the flash and glamour of the great dinner parties of the Seventies. Formality, fabulosity, and artistry combined. It’s not about what you eat, it’s how you eat it.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
We make maximalist tabledressings for minimalist hosts. For years we hosted monthly dinner parties, obsessing over the whole experience from welcome cocktails to saying our goodbyes. Eventually our tablescapes became as vibrant as our guests and we knew we were onto something.
As sisters, we always knew we wanted to work together. Both of us have a professional background in Creative Direction and realized that we could create what we couldn’t find in the marketplace.
We had our business registered for 4 years before we actually committed to giving it a real go. We had to combat serious self-sabotage and start taking the advice we give to all our friends – which is to shut up and do it already!
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
This is a great question for us, as we love to host!
We always welcome a visitor with a dinner party. The menu is inspired by the guest of honor, we take requests! This is a great time to get your guest on board with your inspired itinerary, which includes…
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
Feast of Burdens exists because of our roots in a big Italian family. The saying “food is love” sums up our upbringing. The collective support of loud, artistic, encouraging, wild and witty relatives has always helped us take chances and bet on our ourselves.
