Entertaining With :: Bailey and Peter McCarthy

April 11th, 2013

Nothing personifies entertaining in Houston quite like a dinner party that perfectly fuses Tex-Mex flavors with charming southern hospitality. So when I spotted a topped off margarita glass set beside antique crystal on Bailey McCarthy’s table, I couldn’t help but smile. You may know Bailey as the blogger behind Peppermint Bliss, the brains behind Biscuit Home, or the subject of this gorgeous Matchbook Magazine feature, so we’re beyond excited that she joins us today to share her amazing entertaining style, photographed by Logan Beck.

From Bailey: My husband and I just recently moved back to Houston with our daughter Grace, and renovated a house that’s super close to my store, Biscuit. At least once a week, my Biscuit team and I go out after work, and whenever we try to decide what we want for dinner the answer is always the same: Mexican. Like any good Texan girls, we can’t get enough of it. But in an effort to be a bit healthier, we’ve recently started doing fancy Mexican feasts at my house (think: seared avocado salad instead of chips and guacamole). Our babysitter is an incredible cook as well and always contributes a few dishes that we are more than happy to devour…

    Those polka-dot plates! That green kitchen! I just adore this post. I lived in Houston for a short time and this totally brings back memories of some very fun parties. I love the contrast of Tex Mex served on fine china.

    Sorry guys- I gave the recipe wrong. It is 1 stick of butter, but you don’t use it all. Just as much as it takes to surround your corn in some buttery goodness.
    Jill- The island is from Old Planks Road.
