easy entertaining with west elm.

A little overdue but I wanted to share some photos from the Easy Entertaining event I hosted at West Elm a few weeks ago – we had a great turnout and it was so much fun to chat entertaining tips with some of my favorite Chicago ladies (and a few brave men as well!). Some snapshots from the evening:

And some favorite photos from friends:

     

Thanks Jessica, Molly, Sara, Natalie, Erin, Carrie & Monica!

A very big thank you goes out to West Elm Chicago for inviting me to host (you’re the best Jeromy!), to my wonderful coworker, Greg, for the great photos and to Lovely Bake Shop for providing such delicious treats for our guests. I’ll be sharing my ten simple entertaining tips & key pieces to have at home to make entertaining easy next week, so be sure to check back.
