Hi.

Welcome to The New Hostess! My name is Lucy.

 I love to document my adventures in food, entertaining, home design, and travel. 

I created this site with the hopes of inspiring everyday tastemakers by posting easy recipes and entertaining ideas. I hope you enjoy!

Cook Simple. Share Often. 

Birthday Highlights

Yesterday I turned 24! If the day was any indication of the rest of the year, I am feeling pretty good about it.

  Waking up to a package from home containing these almost-too-pretty-to-open little presents! My momma is the best wrapper in the whole world. She has the most amazing collection of paper, ribbons, cards, and stickers and an eye for detail- down to every last heart! And her large, swirly handwriting makes me so happy. :)
