Pool Party & Pig Roast at Camille’s House

July 10th, 2017

There are few things I love more in life than spending a weekend in the swimming pool with friends, and come summer months we try to squeeze in as many of those days as possible. But for this year’s Fourth of July fête, we decided to go whole hog with the menu, pun intended. I’d long been looking for an opportunity to host a pig roast (for the sole reason that it’s fun and festive), so my friends from Contigo Catering spent the day manning the spit setup in our courtyard, working their magic to create the most succulent pork any of us had ever tasted. Keep reading for my favorite moments from the day, plus a few tips on hosting a pig roast of your own.

    Oh yes, I agree on the green/white plants in terracotta pots…always looking so cool! Now, for the pig roast, not really easy for more simple backyards and never DIY, but still fun. Reminds me of Casa Botin in Madrid where they have the best suckling pig for centuries.

    The day and menu sound and look fabulous. Whenever I see these ubiquitous water balloons I can’t help wonder how you pick up all those balloon bits! I’m so worried for our birds as they are attracted to bright bits in the grass. I’m sure it’s fun and makes for great photo ops, but is it ok for our environment?

    Camille, you look so chic in your black bathing suit and sun glasses! Where did you get your suit from?? Thanks!

    WHOA! First I went through and looked at the perfect party photos. THEN I creeped back up and took in all of the landscaping, design, and most importantly, your FRONT DOOR! I’m obsessed. Do you know who your door is by?

    Beautiful party and great ideas! Any further info on the serving pieces? I love them all, but that tabletop grill/warmer is so cool… would love to know where to find that!
