Raised in Southwest Louisiana surrounded with southern hospitality and traditions, I began as a young child enjoying and sharing the passion and joy of entertaining with my family…who always seem to be celebrating something!
Starting with the influences and love of my maternal grandmother and aunt, I formed my values on faith, family and hospitality. Whether it was a casual crawfish boil on a Friday, cocktails and hor d’oeuvers after mass on Saturday or formal lunch on Sunday, they entertained and displayed southern hospitality at its best!
Over the years, I watched and joined as my parents carried on these traditions throughout my childhood and adulthood and my mother remains “The Hostess with the Mostess”.
The little details are what I remember very vividly and is captured in all the old photos! Whether it was the china and crystal they chose, or the color of the paper napkins, or the flowers and napkin rings at the place settings, or even the themed cakes ...These are what made the memories and the occasions extra special!!
My husband and I have carried on these traditions in our Houston home and other destinations where we have welcomed guests and hosted celebrations over the years, and I’ve so delighted in seeing my daughter begin to do the same!
It’s clearly my joy and passion, and I hope the next generations in our family will continue with our traditions! We create lifelong memories and there is nothing better!
So, it’s pretty obvious why I was delighted to reconnect with a longtime friend, Clemencia Larrimore, who happens to also be an amazingly talented artist and join our talents and passions to create TRE’.
Clemencia creates the beauty in all ways and I use my education and career experience in visual merchandising and marketing to bring the product to you!!
