Hosting Secrets, Gardening tips, and Recipes with Camille Styles

Bringing people together around a table is a passion I share with Camille Styles. I was really fortunate to connect with Camille, having been a follower of her blog for years. In a world full of “lifestyle” blogs, it’s clear that hers is a style genuinely worth imitating. Her site is amazingly sticky and a treasure trove of truly all-encompassing content for entertaining, decorating, wellness, cooking, and more. I was thrilled to host a dinner party (complete with crudités and white port Summer Sonics) at my home as part of her How I Gather series. Joining the party was her friend, local photographer Sara Prince who understood perfectly the look and light of our unique hometown.

This chimichurri sauce makes a wonderful accompaniment to any grilled protein or such simply prepared veggies as eggplant, zucchini, and potatoes.
