MEET CAROLINE + MARISA

Current Coordinates:

CS: Los Angeles, CA

MR: Palisades, CA

Inspiration for launching Casamia:

CS: My co-founder Marisa is a true hostess with the mostess, while hosting used to seem overwhelming to me…. From a time commitment to not having the right ‘things’ to the $$$.

MR: We saw a void in the market and wanted to bring the ease of hosting to homes around the nation.

 

The one thing you always have on your dining table:

CS: Farmer’s Market Flowers….One of the biggest perks of living in Southern California!

MR: A bowl of lemons!

 

Share one or two of your go-to's for stylish entertaining:

CS: Self-serve bar with wine & beer, plus one cocktail option that pairs well with whatever is being served… Minimal florals because I love to serve family style, statement platters, and complementary colors + patterns rather than matchy-matchy!

MR: I love to tie napkins in a knot plus a beautiful flower arrangement although just a handful of single stems in bud vases elevates any table.

Secret weapons for throwing a great dinner party:

MUSIC:

CS: Sucker for the Nancy Meyers Dinner Party Playlist      MR: Source to a friend!

 

SIGNATURE COCKTAIL:

CS: Aperol Spritz in summer & Martini with homemade blue cheese stuffed olives in winter.      MR: Marisa's Martini

 

MENU HIGHLIGHTS:

CS: My husband is the chef - right now his go to is a Barbuto-inspired Steak Salad.     MR: I'm known for my cheese boards + a homemade pasta.

 

SEATING:

CS: Depends on the # of people and if they know each other or not!    MR: Assigned, love switching it up and making everyone talk to someone new!

 

AFTER-PARTY VIBE:

CS: Move to family room for post-dinner drinks and sweets - most likely some sort of chocolate for people to grab if they need something sweet!

MR: Shoes off, chatting, cocktails with friends.

 

FAVORITE HOST GIFT TO GIVE:

CS: Casamia Linens or a Candle

MR: Cocktail Napkins!!
