It’s a dream for me to be able to share my passion for entertaining. From preparing a special meal, to setting the mood with the right décor, from choosing the perfect music playlist to kicking off the night with fun toast, I love being to share these moments with friends and family and create lasting memories.
As a medical sales rep for close to 10 years I spent a lot of time heavily entertaining my clients, which was my favorite part of my job. I then moved into residential real estate as an agent where I learned to appreciate the importance of an aesthetically welcoming home.
As my passion for entertaining grew so did my yearning to learn how to cook and I recently became a certified chef. I have explored hundreds of recipes and have chosen my favorites and my guest’s favorites to share with you. Hopefully you’ll see some that you like, and you and your family and friends enjoy them as much as we do.
I hope you are inspired by our stylish & chic home entertaining products, as well as our tablescapes, hostess tips, recipes, toasts, playlists and more. Be your own unique hostess self with just a few clicks at TWT and as we like to say, “Lets get this party started!”
WHAT MAKES ME SMILE?
When I’m cooking and my daughters are dancing to music in the kitchen. If a song comes on that I like, I start dancing too and the 3 of us end up on the table and chairs!
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE RECIPE?
Anything pasta! Bolognese, Linguine and Clams, Cacio de Pepe, I could eat a bowl of pasta almost every day...I know it’s bad!
Here’s to lying, stealing. Cheating and drinking. If one must lie, lie for a friend. If one must steal, steal a heart. If one must cheat, cheat death, and if one must drink, drink with me, Cheers!!
I love sharing stories and social media is an incredible way to do exactly that. Showcasing beautiful photography and how people around the world use Toasting with Tara’s 100% cotton ecofriendly napkins and placemats to leave a lasting impression on their friends, family, and new friends during every occasion.
I was raised in southern Orange County, California, I played competitive soccer and have always had a love for sports. I’m a senior at Arizona State University, studying Sports Journalism with a focus in Public Relations with a Digital Audiences minor at the esteemed Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communications. I feel honored to have been on the Dean’s List every semester.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE RECIPE?
College Budget Bruschetta – ciabatta bread loaf, premade bruschetta mix and shaved parmesan from Trader Joe’s. Toast bread with olive oil 400 degrees for 5 minutes each side. Spread bruschetta mix, add a drizzle of balsamic vinegar and top with shaved parmesan cheese. Salute!
Collaboration is everything to me! I have been fortunate assisting Fortune 500 companies and high-profile brands in strategic planning, branding, comprehensive communications, and events in the sports, entertainment, fashion, and philanthropic sectors.
I was naturally drawn to be a part of Toasting with Tara, a lifestyle brand that celebrates people coming together and enjoying life. Nothing better!
Plus the environmentally friendly usage of the most affordably chic 100% cotton napkins and placemats in more than 15 colors are simply just fun! My favorite saying is Cheers!
