We’ve been on a bit of a citrus kick around here, and what better way to celebrate its beautiful flavors than with a get-together that did just that. For the next in our series on seasonal entertaining: a meal inspired by winter’s citrus, set against a backdrop of decor that highlighted the theme.
A classic margarita made with fresh ingredients and a premium tequila is hard to beat. But this one from Annie Campbell’s specialty cocktail program definitely gives the original a run for its money.
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. On the menu: a decadent Dark Chocolate Pots De Creme, a Strawberry & Raspberry Layered Pavlova, a Heart-Shaped Naked Layer Cake, and Honey Lavender Ice Cream.
It’s been a few months since our last In the Kitchen with The Chalkboard Mag, and with the amorous holiday fast approaching, we had the perfect excuse for another afternoon of great food and great company. On the menu for this occasion: a cooking class that was all about sweets, courtesy of the lovely Annie Campbell, and Valentine’s Day decor that felt natural, with just a touch of vamp.
For the next in our series on seasonal entertaining: a beautiful baby shower with details inspired by the citrus arrangements created especially for the occasion.
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.
For the next in our series on seasonal entertaining, I wanted to host a small dinner inspired by fall and the delicious apples it brings. To do so, I went for details that felt warm and a bit girly, and a menu filled with all things sweet.
I always love a great Margarita. And while there are tons of great variations out there, this seasonal sip from Annie Campbell’s specialty cocktail program is one that I haven’t seen before – and cannot wait to try.
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.
There is something so magical about a bridal shower – an outpouring of love, and a celebration of the union that is to come. For her friend and neighbor Jen’s shower, the amazing Annie Campbell provided an afternoon that was filled with just that kind of magic, as well as thoughtful details, inspired activities, and a menu perfect for such an occasion.
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.
Within these pages, I’ve often mentioned my love for Stephanie Schur, and her exquisite flower shop, Botany – a long-time friend, she is as lovely as the arrangements she creates. With her third beautiful baby on the way, a celebration was in order, and the day itself was one filled with joy and love.
Last week, I shared a warm and wonderful late summer get-together, hosted by the amazing Annie Campbell of Annie Campbell Catering. Her, sweet, seasonal giveaway was far to charming not to mention, so I simply had to share.
For the latest installment in our seasonal entertaining series, it was all about fun (and of course fabulous food and drink) as Annie Campbell hosted a game night featuring elevated B.L.T. sandwiches as the star of the show.
