At The Table With Erin Pollard

Meet Erin Pollard


Vocation: Brand Marketing & Partnerships Consultant

Current Coordinates: Brooklyn and Montauk

The one thing you always have on your dining table: Maldon sea salt flakes, olive oil, and flowers from our backyard

What do you love about entertaining? When we have the chance to gather with friends and family, it’s special. I love planning ahead to make guests feel welcome and loved.  It’s the simple things that make times around the table great.

How do you love to set the table? I always include the kids by foraging for flowers and making bouquets, gathering vegetables and herbs, and baking together.It’s not only fun to share the anticipation of a great meal, it teaches them gratitude for simple things… and they feel pride in their accomplishments.

How would your friends describe you as a host: I hope they describe me as fun?

Your go-to cocktail: Aperol Spritz + a Red + a White

Your go-to meal to serve: No go-to main, but always a big garden salad (when in season)

Necessary accompaniment to a well set table:  A breakout dance session.

If you’re not entertaining, where do you love to go to have a great meal? Loconda Vini E Olii is just around the corner from our house in Brooklyn. It feels like Italy there.

Most memorable meal of late: Friends gave us a pizza oven as a wedding gift.  Our Sunday pizza parties have become pretty delicious

Favorite color combos: In autumn, olive and mustard, navy and black, red and pink, Terracotta and mint
