The Ultimate Host :: Challenge #1

Last week I shared that I’ll be partnering with Sterling Vineyards, Padma Lakshmi and 3 other bloggers to help judge this year’s Ultimate Host Challenge and today, I’m announcing the first of  four challenges that YOU can enter!

The Ultimate Host challenge 1


I know you are all capable of winning the title of Sterling’s Ultimate Host. You know how to put those thoughtful touches on your events and I know you are all great at finding inspiration. I’d LOVE it if one of you, my talented and charming readers, won this title … so please be sure to enter!

Padma explains the challenge in this video:



Challenge 1: Ladies’ (or Guys’) Night In

“Do your friends always congregate at your house for dinner parties? Do you make an effort to include special touches in décor and theme while creating memories in your home? If so, this could be your challenge to shine!”


How to enter: Simply submit your video, photo, or text submission to show us how you would complete this challenge. All entries should be submitted on Sterling Vineyards’ Facebook page here.  Entries must be submitted by September 20, 2012.

What you can WIN:  Winners from each of the 4 challenges win a Sterling gift basket and a chance to compete in a grand finale event in NYC for the top prize of $25,000 plus a trip for 2 to the Pebble Beach Food & Wine Festival in Carmel, CA. PLUS, the title of “Sterling Ultimate Host” for the year.

I know you are brimming with ideas for this challenge! Submit your video, photo, or text entry with your great ideas for a Ladies’ (or Guys’) night in over on Sterling Vineyard’s Facebook page!
