My hope is that this blog will help you host dinner parties where the food tastes great, the wine goes down easy, and you can enjoy the company of your guests without stressing over the details.
Need a dinner party menu? I got you covered. Music to play while you dine? Click on over here. Otherwise Trader Joe’s is my secret weapon when it comes to being the hostess with the mostest. From trying a new wine to picking out a delicious cheese and purchasing the French-inspired food, I find their products to be high quality and highly affordable.
Now a little bit about moi. My name is Alyssa Pacaut and I’m a minimalist who believes that less is more except when it comes to wine. I’m also 100% obsessed with the French from the way they dress to the way they talk.
It’s probably no surprise that this obsession was sparked by my French husband. Known as the monsieur around these parts, Arnaud is the perfect partner in life and entertaining. Outside of BBQing and pouring wine like a champ, he’s a furniture designer over at Le Cali Designs who is as kind as he is talented.
