Keepsake Recipe Wall Project
Colonial Wallcoverings Keepsake Recipe Wall is a new project to turn crowdsourced family recipes into a one-of-a-kind wallpaper.
One hot summer day, owner Paul got hungry for new wallpaper designs. He got to thinking about old family recipes that are too easy to lose, or worse, never written down. He thought, why not put them on a wall? We couldn't think of a reason not to. And just like that, the Keepsake Recipe Wall Project was born.
Your recipes, everyone's wallpaper
We're always looking for opportunities to engage the community (and beef up our recipe collection), so we put out a call for family recipes to be included in the wallpaper design. Submissions of recipes are closed, and we're currently working on designing and producing the wallpaper. Stay tuned!
10/7 Art Show & Potluck
To celebrate the project, we hosted a Family Recipe Party on Friday, October 7. Four local artists featured their work on our gallery wall, and friends brought family dishes and handwritten recipes to include in the wallpaper we're designing. The food and wine are all gone, but art by Rin Lack, Elizabeth Pratt, Sean Martorana, and Jennifer Manzella will be up through the end of October.
