Entertaining With :: House of Brinson

I first met William and Susan Brinson last year when I was in NYC with Caitlin and Erin, and they hosted a little cocktail party for us at their loft in Manhattan. I remember thinking when I walked in that I hadn’t ever seen a home quite like it – a live/work space that’s a total study in contrasts with dark walls amidst light and airy spaces; rustic shelving next to modern classics. As she gave us the tour, Susan pointed out countless projects that they’d DIY’d together, giving the entire loft a completely original feel. I’ve gotten to know William and Susan better over the last year and am continually wow’d by their talent – both grads of Savannah College of Art & Design, William is a commercial photographer who shoots for the likes of Architectural Digest, House Beautiful and Martha Stewart Living (as well as the photos in this gallery), and Susan is an art director and all-around creative genius who continually blows me away with her styling prowess on their shared blog House of Brinson. Bet you’re dying to know how this couple entertains in their off-hours, aren’t you? You’re in luck! Click through for scenes from a recent dinner party, a few of their secrets to entertaining success and some recipes I’m dying to make (including a yogurt and beets appetizer inspired by my fave at ABC Kitchen.)

Baked Eggs
This recipe is simple enough for a large crowd. You can customize it with your favorite tomato sauce or make your own in advance. We love the individual dishes that make a simple dish a little fancy. These dishes are also wonderful for mac and cheese and pot pie. 

  • eggs (2 per person)
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Heavy cream
  • Tomato sauce
  • Red pepper flakes
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Add a few spoonfuls of tomato sauce in your dish and make a well for the 2 eggs. If you like a little spice, sprinkle with the red pepper flakes. Add the 2 eggs into the tomato sauce wells. After the eggs are nestled into the center, add a drizzle of cream and top with a couple of pinches of parmesan cheese. Bake in the oven 10-12 minutes until the white is solid and the yolk is cooked softly. Serve immediately, because the eggs will continue to cook.

    Love Susan and William and, admittedly, am rather jealous that all y’all got to break bread together. Happy for y’all, Camille… but jealous. ;)

    Just spent 20 minutes searching for those utensils. Where on earth did you find such fantastic items?

      @kyle I have seen that set pop up on Ebay or Etsy. Search gold or brass wood or teak and Thailand. They are stamped with Thailand on the back, and I think they were popular imports in the 1950s. I bought the whole set super cheap at a thrift store – a real lucky find. :)

      Camille – thanks so much for having us on your blog. An honor!
