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.
For the second in a series of seasonal entertaining posts hosted by some of my nearest and dearest: a simple, authentic dinner party with girlfriends, thrown by the amazing Annie Campbell of Annie Campbell Catering.
For a cocktail party that we recently hosted at my Almont store, my friend and caterer Annie Campbell created the most amazing crudité platters, and I fell in love.
My kids had so much fun decorating gingerbread houses last year that we just had to do it again this year. For last year’s festivities, Annie Campbell helped us make our own incredible houses from scratch. However, after realizing that none of the kids actually ate their creations because they took such pride in them (and were too busy eating candy along the way), this year we decided to instead buy pre-made kits from Bed Bath & Beyond.
