Hi! I'm Michele
I grew up in Connecticut in a home constantly filled with good food, wine, company and laughter. I loved watching my mother host parties, twinkling around the room, as her guests got lost in the evening. Her motto was always:
In college, I studied Fine Arts and Marketing at The Fashion Institute of Technology. I have been lucky enough to have a wonderful career in New York City doing product development in the beauty industry. It is a job that I love, being able to make and create beautiful things.
However, I always knew that hosting was a part of me. On the weekends, I was always experimenting with recipes, inventing new cocktails and inviting friends over for dinner parties. It was a different type of creativity. It was creating an experience for people.
I currently live outside the city with my husband, Greg. Whether I’m making dinner for just the two of us after work, or hosting a dinner party on a Saturday night, it is always a special occasion!
The Blonde Hostess is my party planning persona. It is a place for me to share recipes, stories, and ways to welcome guests into your home and heart.
