A couple of weeks ago, my partner and I decided to take the folks at the Payne-Corley House in Duluth up on their invitation to come and Sip and See. That particular Saturday afternoon was absolutely gorgeous and afforded us the opportunity to see all sorts of blooming flowers on the property.
The Payne-Corley house, built around 1870, is the oldest standing home in the city of Duluth. It was built as a farmhouse when Duluth was known as "Howell's Crossing." (This is nothing like the three-room farmhouse where my Mom grew up.) Entering the home from the side entrance, we were greeted with this lovely painted porch, one of my favorite parts of the home.
Upon entering the home, we found a lovely assortment of hors d'oevres and desserts displayed. I waited to indulge in the scrumptious chocolate ganache, until after I had tasted some awesome crab cakes and a to-die-for summer gazpacho.
The next Sip and See at the Payne Corley House is June 11th. Stop by for a visit and check out their wedding and event facility space.
