How to Be a Domestic Goddess
“How to Be a Domestic Goddess” is the book upon the kitchen shelf in the home of Haute Hostess Emily White of Park City. After talking with her about her popular event planning enterprise, I suspect she is the author.
“I can do most anything but have to look at and think about the location and the clients,” says the West Virginia native. A successful Haute Hostess event needs a month’s advance notice.
Emily’s passion is “creating things” like one-of-a-kind party hats and favors. “I intermingle colors, textures, patterns, looking for things unseen.” On one occasion she suspended champagne glasses from the ceiling over a long dinner table to create a festive, holiday ambiance.
A Haute Hostess summer family reunion might include visits to local ranches seeking the perfect setting. An amazing chef, Blue Grass Band, horse wrangler, and Emily’s inventive décor (lanterns lighting the path to a barn dinner setting, straw bales for seating, a long table of reclaimed barn wood, and tiny horseshoes as napkin holders) can provide an unforgettable event.
The menu for this evening meal: Braised Beef Short Ribs with Rosemary, Smoked Red Potatoes with Butter and Brown Sugar, Grilled Peaches with a Balsamic Glaze served with Crumbled Blue Cheese, Southern Coleslaw with a Tangy, Hot
Vinegar Dressing, and Rum-Spiked Watermelon.
She doesn’t always use things as they are intended but often chooses an unpredictable yet elegant pathway. Natural and inexpensive elements are cornerstones in her designs.
