Entertaining With :: Susan Hutchinson

December 19th, 2013

Did you guys catch this to-die-for Bastille Day first birthday party back in August? I caught wind of it while browsing Pinterest one day, and it immediately soared to the top of my “favorite parties” list. The mama behind the masterpiece? None other than Susan Hutchinson, francophile and author of Fleurishing. So it was no surprise that when we asked Susan to take part in our Entertaining With series, she let us crash her oh-so-French réveillon dinner party. If you’re unfamiliar with the celebration, a réveillon is a long dinner that take place on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve, and it’s all about the great food, bubbling drinks and staying up late with fabulous company. Click through to see the gorgeous photos Courtney Apple took, as well as four must-try holiday recipes from Susan!

  14. […] Le réveillon is an intimate dinner we host every New Year’s Eve, and it is a special tradition for my family. The word “réveillon” means awakening, and I’ve always loved the concept. It’s an old French custom experiencing a resurgence-in the States for instance, you can’t escape it if visiting New Orleans during the holidays. Regardless of how you ring in the New Year, I hope to inspire your event! I was honored to have this féte recently featured on Camille Styles-check it out here! […]
