How do you like to entertain? What is the vibe (where, feeling, how)? Truth be told, I am much better at setting the table than cooking the food. If you come over for dinner you will likely be eating take-out on fine china. But, I think the true beauty of entertaining is in the high low mix. Effortlessly elegant is the vibe I am always striving for. I adore entertaining in my newly redesigned dining room (done by the wonderfully talented Becky Nielsen) and I have been known to even serve McDonalds fries on silver trays paired with fine champagne. Fancy yet FUN!
What are you serving? Take out on china ;)
What are you sipping? My two favorite drinks are bellinis and espresso martinis - I love offering them to guests as fun cocktail options you don’t find everywhere. Bellinis for morning or afternoon and espresso martinis for evening.
What are you wearing? A dress barefoot.
What are you listening to? Nancy Meyers Kitchen Spotify playlist. Nothing better.
How do you make your guests feel special? How do you make them feel at home? I always feel the more at ease you are as a host, the more it makes your guest feels at home.
If you are hosting a dinner, what is your go-to centerpiece? Gorgeous flowers, always. Truly my favorite part of any tablescape.
How do you end a celebration? Hopefully, with a dance party!
What is your favorite Half Past Seven product to entertain with? Our upcoming collab cocktail napkins, of course! Particularly the “This or That” Set for evening. Stay tuned!
