But when it's here, there's nothing better than whipping up a warm, comforting, delicious and delightful batch of soup. At Dovecote, we have a couple recipe collections on the subject to help entice you into the kitchen and into the fall spirit....

Emily and Virat tied the knot on March 18, 2017. These newlyweds said their "I do"s in the Garden House & The Garden Terrace and danced the night away in The Barn! How did you and your partner meet?

Cocoa Cocktails

Just a few days before Halloween is a hallowed day free from the commercialized candy bars and candy corns, and focused on what really matters: chocolate. October 28th is National Chocolate Day, a truly hallowed day for those of us who needed an excuse to go ham on some cacao. It’s no wonder why chocolate has been given a national holiday: chocolate has been a human delicacy for thousands of...

This concoction has been the bartender’s staple for centuries...

Japanese Squishies

Japanese Squishies!

So remember how the fidget spinner absolutely obsessed the school set last year? Behold its dawdling backlash: the Japanese squishy. Slow rising, ultra-sensory, cute as can be, these are your new main squeeze. We’ve got stress-busting pies, cookies, mushrooms, croissants… small enough for keychains and big enough for backpacks. Get one before they’re gone, y’all! - Kelley,...
