A Blueberry Smash - just what the doctor ordered! ☺️
Wise words of the week! 😉 SO excited to announce I will be launching an online store this Fall and will be selling everything you’d need to host a *fabulous* party! 🎉 One of my favorite items are these embroidered cocktail napkins I designed myself - I think they’re the perfect touch to any fiesta! I’m currently running a special sale if you PRE-ORDER a set! DM me for more info! 💕
I just love a great dinner party, especially during the relaxed summer months. We’re all so busy on the weekends - why not host a laid-back party mid week? Tonight I’m having some girlfriends over for dinner, drinks and lots of laughs. I’m keeping things simple with dishes that can be prepared in under an hour and I put together what I could in advanced. This cheery tablescape is finished off with brightly colored flowers from (believe it or not) the grocery store. I bought three large bouquets and arranged the flowers into small vases to place down the center of the table. What are some of your favorite time/money saving dinner party tricks? 🌼
When the weather is warm and the cold drinks are flowing, there’s no accompaniment quite like perfectly crisp crostini topped with ripe summer fruits and vegetables. This scrumptious appetizer is sure to satisfy guests’ cravings for fresh blueberries, corn, tomato, avocado and so much more. Eminently snackable, this crowd-pleaser is not too heavy, and provides a taste of the best produce of the season – and a big platter of them is pretty impressive looking, too. Summer entertaining should be especially simple, because who wants to be stuck inside cooking when your guests are outside enjoying the beautiful weather? Not me, that’s for sure! Find this recipe by searching ‘Summer Crostini’ on my website! 🍅🌽
Pretending I’m on still on vacation and having buttery garlic steamed clams for dinner. As they say, vacation is a state of mind. 😎
It wouldn’t be a weekend party without a cheese board and today I’m filling my board up with a ton of fresh produce like the board shown here. Fruit and veggies add a pop of color to your tray to make it extra fab. What are you making this weekend? 🍓🧀
Happy 4th! 🇺🇸💥
Wishing you all a fabulous and safe 4th of July! 🇺🇸 Did any one make some of my patriotic recipes or use some of my tablescape tips? Share your photos with me using #ThePreppyHostess! I can’t wait to see what you created! 🌟❤️💙
Whether you say July 4th or 4th of July, to celebrate, I have shown you many different ways this summer to show off your red, white, and blue spirit, including star-spangled decorations, flag displays, and showstopping berry desserts. My table is set and I’m ready for tomorrows celebrations! How are you celebrating? 🇺🇸⭐️
This 4th of July, invite friends and family over for an effortless summer celebration that’s low-key yet high on style. My favorite part about summer is that life just slows down and gets more laid-back. And so does the entertaining. The key to a fun, casual party is in the no-fuss details. Simple décor, food and drinks are all you need to put together a fabulous event. Today on my website I am sharing a patriotic tablescape that will enliven any gathering.

I have shared a lot about myself since starting ‘The Preppy Hostess’ but there has also been a lot that I’ve kept private. I try to share mostly entertaining tips, recipes, party ideas and not much about myself. But this I am too excited not to share... meet Paul, my best friend and future husband! 😍 Now I get to plan the biggest party of my life and I can’t wait to share it with you all! ❤️💍

The sweet watermelon and salty feta is a classic pairing and very refreshing. Star shaped watermelon makes this salad extra festive and is simple to achieve, with a star shaped cookie cutter.
