We’re so excited to share our next Cheeky party! Each season we partner with amazing creatives, and for fall we chose Eden Passante of Sugar and Charm! Eden has a passion for sweet recipes, hosting inspiration and easy ways to add charm to the daily life, which made her perfect for styling our brand new holiday collection!
We asked Eden, "What does 'Make Mealtime Matter' mean to you?"
If you could invite any 4 people to dine with, who would you choose?
I would surround my table with powerful, hardworking influential women! Women who started with little, took risks, and worked hard to achieve their goals in artistic fields. How amazing would it be to dine with Coco Chanel, Billie Holiday, Audrey Hepburn, and J.K. Rowling. I have to add one more (sorry!) - Oprah! Five incredibly talented women who worked hard in the arts, leading a positive path for women along the way.
What are your favorite tips and tricks to style your mealtime gatherings with friends?
I never style a party without flowers! Flowers are simply the most perfect way to add charm to a table-setting! Also, choosing a theme always helps me style a table, too!
How do you decide what to make for gatherings?
It depends on so many factors! The theme is very important, the time of year, and the occasion. If it's a large party, I don't mind having a catered by one of my favorite companies in L.A. If it's more of an intimate dinner, I love making something delicious like roast in my crockpot. No matter what it is, I try to keep it simple and delicious!
How can bringing people around the table make an impact to help end hunger
Gathering with friends and family, maybe cooking a meal for someone in need, or just making it a topic of conversation can have an impact.
What's your ultimate party song?
I don't have one song, but I prefer to put a blues and jazz station on and have it playing in the background.
What is your favorite hostess tip to make party planning a little easier?
Do all your prepping the day before! Anything you can cook or make ahead of time will help tremendously.
Why do you choose to use Cheeky's party collection?
We love using Cheeky because the designs are so charming. It's easy, disposable and we love that Cheeky supports a wonderful cause.
