All things hosting with the Maisonette co-founder and former Met Gala party planner.
Meet Sylvana. She planned eight Met Galas. So it’s safe to say she knows a thing or two about a good party. Scroll on down for a tour of her (walk-in!) pantry.
Q: What’s a party at your place like?
Sylvana: I love to host. Party planning is super important to me and such a fun distraction. From the tablescape to the food, party favors, wine, and, of course, a late-night, shoes-off dance party. I want my guests to have a great time, meet new people, and leave wanting more!
Q: How would you sum up your pantry in 2 – 3 words?
Sylvana: Needs more organization!!
Q: What items is your pantry incomplete without?
Sylvana: Peanut Butter. Olive Oil. Pasta.
Q: What’s your pantry organization (or disorganization) method?
Sylvana: I basically go in once a month to reorganize and throw things out. I recently started working with Diane Lowy to help me and it is SO organized now. I’m obsessed!!!
Q: Favorite after-party snack?
Sylvana: Mini burgers and grilled cheeses. And mini doughnuts.
Q: What has been in your pantry longer than anything else and is probably past its expiration date?
Sylvana: Flour. All the flour. I’m not a baker.
Q: If your best friend opened your pantry, how would he / she definitely know it’s yours?
Sylvana: We have a million bottles of water at all times
Fill in the blank:
If Honey Nut Cheerios is running low, I am stressed my kids will freak out.
When I’m feeling bougie, I like to snack on Brookside Dark Chocolate Pomegranate.
When I’m watching movies, I like to snack on Milk Duds.
I will fight to the death to convince anyone that dijon is better than yellow mustard.
