For her recent backyard get-together in celebration of National Watermelon Day (where she wore my plaid linen crop shell top), the same held true. Featuring […]
As I shared yesterday, our most recent In The Kitchen with The Chalkboard Mag featured Fourth of July-themed decor elements and a meal to match. And for this get-together, we were lucky enough to have Matt Poley of Heirloom LA walk us through creating an inspired picnic menu perfect for the occasion. I was first introduced […]
The terms Vegan and BBQ don’t generally go hand in hand, but after our Memorial Day-inspired get-together with Kitchen Mouse, they definitely should. For our most recent In the Kitchen, the lovely and talented Erica Daking was tasked with creating a completely vegan and gluten-free meal worthy of a summer-starting BBQ, and she more than rose to […]
As I shared yesterday, our Mother’s Day get-together with The Chalkboard Mag was all about baked goods of the all natural, grain-free and refined sugar-free variety. Leading our afternoon of inspiration and instruction: the lovely ladies of Sweet Laurel Bakery, Laurel Gallucci and Claire Thomas. Longtime friends and now partners in the almost-too-delicious-to-be-true paleo (and sometimes raw/vegan) bakery, they were a joy […]
As I shared yesterday, the decor elements for Ripley’s princess-themed party were so great, and Annie Campbell’s menu for the day was the icing on the cake.
As I shared yesterday, our most recent In the Veggie Kitchen featured a menu and decor perfect suited for spring, this time led by the amazing Helene Henderson of Malibu Farm. An inspired suggestion from our co-hosts at The Chalkboard Mag, Helene was a breath of fresh air, and walked us through creating a meal that was organic, local and simply delicious.
As I shared yesterday, our Valentine’s Day get-together with The Chalkboard Mag was appropriately all about sweets, with inspiration and instruction courtesy of the always-amazing Annie Campbell.

I recently had the distinct pleasure of hosting a beautiful and inspirational evening in support of FEED and their mission to end world hunger.

As mentioned yesterday, in preparation for the upcoming holiday, we once again teamed up with The Chalkboard Mag for a get-together both festive and delicious. On the menu for this year’s gathering: a vegetarian feast prepared by the incomparable Pamela Salzman.
As I shared yesterday, my sister Saree’s birthday dinner decor was inspired by her love of wildflowers. And for the evening’s menu, the same applied.
Over the last several months, I’ve featured Claire Thomas’ un-fussy yet sophisticated food on a regular basis, so when planning a Halloween party catered to the adults – complete with a festive and seasonal menu – I immediately thought of her.
Yesterday, I shared all of romantic design details for a Laurel Canyon-inspired bridal shower, thrown by the always-amazing Annie Campbell. Today: all the details for food and drink.
My birthday dinner was everything I hoped it would be – a wonderful meal surrounded by the people I love most. And with temperatures that have been on the warm side to say the least, it was so nice to have a celebration that felt like a perfect transition into the season ahead.
Yesterday, I shared all of the lovely design elements for Stephanie Schur’s special day. Today: all of the delicious details. Created by the always-amazing Annie Campbell, the vegetarian menu inspired by what was “seasonal, summery and best” at the Santa Monica Farmers Market was everything Stephanie had hoped for and more.
