One of the major perks of starting our Entertaining With series is having an excuse to meet some of the cool, creative people I’ve admired from afar. Actually sitting down with them in their homes and getting the inside scoop on their secrets to savvy entertaining is more fun than I could have imagined. And today’s subject, Elizabeth Winslow, is definitely no exception. As co-founder of Farmhouse Delivery, Elizabeth has developed a cult following of fresh food fanatics who anxiously await their weekly deliveries of beautiful, seasonal produce from local farms. It’s an amazing concept that’s taken hold among the many who share Elizabeth’s passion to eat in season, support family farms and feel a connection with their food and where it came from. And to help Farmhouse recipients make the most of all that bounty, she shares the most mouthwatering recipes on the company’s blog, Farmhouse Table. (Trust me, you’re going to want to make everything.) Elizabeth brings this same sense of inclusiveness and connection to the way she entertains at home, and I knew from the moment I stepped through the doors of her gorgeous West Austin home, she’s mastered the art of making guests feel welcome. Her decor combines just enough family photos, vintage records and treasures picked up from trips to Marfa and Mexico to feel lived in yet totally uncluttered, and I can imagine some pretty amazing parties being thrown in her living room with the massive french doors thrown open to the courtyard pool. Click through for the gorgeous images shot by Chelsea Fullerton and so many great entertaining tips from Elizabeth…
