summer entertaining

all images from here and domino

katie lee..had me at brown sugared bacon as an kind of girl! A gal who got her cooking skills from her grandmother in west virginia..eating seasonal produce and meat from the land..but with a southern food flair!
i loved some of her tips for entertaining..and from the looks of her house, designed by Nate Berkus, you could probably eat cereal and feel special..

entertaining tips:
1. create a playlist..something upbeat for cocktails and something mellow for dinner..
2. properly equip your guest bathroom: fresh hand towels, scented candle, soap, (a discreetly placed plunger will help avoid any embarrassing situations!)
3. set the table the night before
4. have fun..its a party for crying out loud!

1) Love that she has a puggy.
2) Love that she's from West Virginia.
3) Love that she eats bacon.
