There is nothing I enjoy more than bringing close friends and family together, especially over a great meal. This season, I’ve teamed up with CorningWare and Corelle to host the Fashion Kitchen event during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, to showcase how to have a chic kitchen and entertain in style. This intimate, exclusive event has limited space, so I wanted to provide some of the tips we’ll be sharing at the event.
The day of the party, I start early in the kitchen – to ensure everything is ready in advance so that I can enjoy time with my guests. One great time-saver is Corningware® French White bakeware. It goes from oven to table, no need to change serving dishes after baking. I also love the way they look on the dining table, as the designs have been recently refreshed for a more contemporary, modern feel.
To set the table, I start with bright colored linens and crisp white dinnerware. I love the options from Boutique™ by Corelle®, which offer two designs: Cherish and Swept. Both speak to the subtle sophistication and durability I seek in my table accessories. I finish things off with vibrant floral center pieces and candles to set the mood.
Through August 23, you can enter to win the Fashion Kitchen grand prize trip for two to Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, including tickets to my show and backstage access on September 6, as well as seats at the exclusive Fashion Kitchen event hosted by me and prepared by Chef Nate Appleman.
