Sterling Vineyards Search for the Ultimate Host

Friends, I’ve seen your parties… have even had the great privilege of being to some of them. You know how to throw a great event! Your Instagrams, Facebook updates, Tweets all tell me that you could easily be “The Ultimate Host“. I know you might be thinking “Me? The Ulitmate Host?” Yes, you!

If you have a flair for entertaining, a house where every occasion big or small is a celebration, friends and family who turn to you for awesome party ideas, then YOU could very well be exactly what Sterling Vineyards is looking for! I know so many of you have it in you, and now, it’s time to be recognized for it!

So what’s this all about? Well, I’ve partnered with Sterling Vineyards on their 2nd annual search for “The Ultimate Host.

I’m joining judges Padma Lakshmi (Top Chef), Tori Tate (Thoughtfully Simple), Jillian Tohber (Catch My Party) and Aryka Randall (The Fab Femme) in a quest to see who can rise up to the hosting challenges set forth of the next several weeks. You can find out all about the Ulitmate Host Challenges on the Sterling Vineyards Facebook page. I’ll tell you this much though… this December, four finalists will be flown to New York City for a finale event where host extraordinaire Padma Lakshmi (plus myself and the other judges) will help Sterling crown the winner. Plus the final four will be competing for the grand prize of $25,000 and the title of Sterling Vineyards Ultimate Host! Now that’s worth a party, right?

Over the next several weeks, I’ll be sharing my take on each of the challenges. Don’t wait for me though. Head on over to the Sterling Vineyards Facebook page to find out the official rules and enter today! Hopefully I’ll see YOU in NYC in December! Good luck!!

    Oh. My. Goodness. Do you need a personal assistant on this trip?! :) I can pretend I’m taking stenography or something? :)

    Wow, big time – Padma Lakshmi! Tell us if her hair is really that gorgeous in person…

    You know what? I’m actually about to host my very first party at my very own house TODAY! I’m not the ultimate hostess, not even close, but today I am at least going to join the ranks OF hosts and hostesses!

    I have a European trip (that I am still in the process of planning), my Dad’s coming for a visit, I’m planning a 40th bday weekend for my husband, a trip to Santa Barbara that I’m arranging for about 10 of my friends, a trip to L.A. to see the Emmy’s (sitting on the bleechers at the red carpet) – and I’m planning the dinners, I’m attending a Bachelorette party at a casino (and I’m sure I’ll be incharge of something), going to a wedding, and planning a long weekend in NYC for friends – all within the time frame of this contest. Am I crazy? I’m going to enter this contest! So excited!!!

    I had my Sterling party last night. I was just about to enter a few moments ago. The first question is which state I reside. Didn’t realize CA is not valid! Aaaargh!!!
