I am so excited to announce our partnership with Zoës Kitchen! With over 150 restaurant locations, Zoës Kitchen offers fresh, delicious Mediterranean-inspired food. Lucky for us, we have a restaurant right around the corner from our shop in Chandler! When the opportunity came up to work with Zoës to showcase their fabulous party packs in celebration settings, I knew it was a perfect fit. As you may know, I am half Greek and absolutely love Greek food, especially my YiaYia’s, and Zoës too!

Zoë means “life” in Greek and this is embraced in every aspect of Zoës Kitchen. They embrace the Mediterranean way of life – that a fulfilled, happy life is one shared with family, good friends, great food and that eating wholesome, fresh ingredients is key. Zoës delivers goodness by giving guests more time to celebrate life by offering simple, convenient and tasty recipes that can be enjoyed throughout life’s many occasions.

The first party we are sharing is a Girls’ Night In gathering! With Zoës delicious food and inspiration + printables from TomKat, you can easily recreate this casual celebration at home. Grab your girlfriends and host a fun night in with fresh Mediterranean food, refreshing margaritas and delicious sweets!

Tip #1: Dinner doesn’t always have to be at the dinner table! Keep it casual and gather in the family room!

Tip #2: My favorite floral arrangements are simple and easy to create. To add pops of color to your gathering, pick up a few bunches of flowers on your way home, cut all to the same length and place in mason jars or vases.

Tip #3: Use Zoës Kitchen limeade as a base for margaritas. Add ice, tequila and a cute straw and garnish, for a cocktail that all the girls will love.

Tip #4: Don’t forget the Orzo Tabouli. It’s one of my favorite things on the menu. Yum!

Tip #5: For pretty presentation, scoop the various hummus flavors from your party pack into fancy bowls. Serve with pita bread and cucumbers.

  2. Jennifer Ely says:

    I love that table runner. I looked the company up. Can you only get the products on line? The closest store to me is a couple hours away. Would love to find that runner or a similar one on line.

  3. Joy says:

    I love that white vase with the red roses. Can I ask where you got that?

  4. Barb Allison says:

    Fabulous! Just the inspiration I needed for a get-together I am hosting later this month. THANK YOU!

  5. Caley says:

    That is amazing!!! Is that runner gift wrap?

  6. Jeanne says:

    I love the floral print on the brown background leaning against the wall behind the food on the buffet table. Is it for sale?

  7. I really like this blog…this food looks so great. I think this would be a great idea for a bride to hang out with her girls before the big day…I would love to share on my blog if I have your permission. Thanks for such a great blog. http://www.cvweddings.com

    I was in Zoe’s Kitchen the other day, admiring the beautiful photo styling of their party products, so imagine my surprise when I visited your site today, and saw that you had staged and styled it. Just gorgeous!
