How She Hosts: Liza Pruitt

I believe that the magic behind any beautiful space is the unique language the walls are speaking. I’ve made my passion my work by connecting people with the art that speaks their language. I have an insatiable appetite for experiencing what the world has waiting for me and getting in front of it’s beauty as often as possible.

As a sociology major from The University of Georgia, understanding the development of a culture is fascinating to me. No matter where I travel, I discover that the love of beauty is universal. This endeavor is a peak into my world and an opportunity to share the beauty I am constantly discovering.

Born in Savannah. Fell in love in Jackson Hole. Rooted in Richmond, Virginia.

How do you like to entertain? What is the vibe (where, feeling, how)?

My husband and I love to entertain and have friends over. If it may be watching a football game, cooking out and hanging out on the back porch or poolside. We live in the country so we love being outside if the weather permits and creating a relaxed environment. Good company, music and drinks is usually my motto. The food is just a bonus. 

What are you serving?

We love to cookout so steaks, green beans, potatoes and a good mixed salad is my go to meal. 

What are you sipping?

Spicy margaritas 

What are you wearing?

We have friends over all the time and are usually spontaneous so very casual: jeans and a blouse are my go to. 

What are you listening to?

I love Maggie Rogers and Mumford & Sons and I was just introduced to Goose. On repeat at this moment.

How do you make your guests feel special? How do you make them feel at home?

We usually have a full bar available as I want everyone to enjoy themselves if they may be drinking water to a mixed drink. 

If you are hosting a dinner, what is your go-to centerpiece?

A simple flower arrangement. 

How do you end a celebration?

Good conversation and we have learned our guests need to have an uber scheduled as we live in the country. 

What is your favorite Half Past Seven product to entertain with?

I am in love with tortoise rocks glassware. Anything tortoise wins me over!
