Hi. I'm Lydia Menzies.

I help make your gathering a celebration with The Supper Club

After years of hosting friends and family for dinner, I know how tricky it can be to decide on all of the details -- from table settings and centerpieces to crowd-pleasing recipes.

I’m here to help! I understand the joy of gathering everyone around a table and watching them discover the thoughtful details added just for them. I relate to the happiness in knowing that your guests enjoyed a dish so much that they asked for the recipe.

I also know how hectic it gets trying to make plans while life moves 100 miles an hour.

Even the best hosts enjoy a helpful tip or new idea along the way, and The Supper Club will offer all of the best ideas. Being a warm, hospitable hostess is always a goal of mine, and I offer my tested tips and ideas for being a gracious host.

From hosting supper clubs with friends in my 20s to hosting supper clubs for my teens and their friends, I am eager to share this virtual supper club community with you. These ideas will make you the hostess with the mostess and have your guests anticipating the next chance to gather together with you!

I'm saving you a seat at the table!

Monthly Theme

Monthly Theme

Lydia will announce a theme each month! This will give us a focal point to get our creative juices flowing. The themes will range from seasons, colors, patterns, holidays, and other unique ideas.

Recently we’ve been experimenting with traditional and non-traditional approaches to entertaining and decorating for Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. This includes table settings and recipes that are colorful, elaborate, simple and everything in between!

Weekly Recipes

Weekly Recipes

Each week, Lydia will share a menu to enjoy with your friends and/or families. The recipes are intended to either go together as a meal or they can be excellent additions to your weekly meal favorites.

For example, Lydia will share recipes for a Halloween Girls’ Night In (think easy puff-pastry pizza and salad) as well as her go-to family favorites that are requested each year for Halloween.

Table Setting

Table Setting

Lydia will prepare one of her creative table settings each month and share tips on creating a similar look or feel in your home.

We will chat about ways to use what you have in your home to create a fabulous table, how to freshen it up throughout the month to keep it pretty, and Lydia’s favorite resources for unique tablescapes.

A few upcoming ideas…Halloween with a twist, traditional Halloween, an apple-themed fall table setting, Friendsgiving ideas, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s, Winter Beauty, and so much more!

Guest Spotlight

Frequently Asked Questions

Is this an in-person Supper Club like the ones you’ve hosted in Athens, Ga?

This is actually a virtual Supper Club that doesn’t take place on one night but lasts all month long — no matter where you live! I’ve taken all of the best parts of my local Supper Club parties — table settings, recipes, cocktails, community — and I am delivering it to you in my Supper Club member portal.

Is your blog now only available for Supper Club members?

No! I will continue to post on my creative blog, just like before. You will also still have access to my archive of blog posts dating back to 2011. Supper Club members will have access to more recipes, table settings, in-depth holiday tutorials, guest spotlights, one-on-one conversations, and a community of like-minded hosts.

Will you ever host in-person Supper Clubs?

I can’t wait to be able to meet in person and celebrate together!  An in-person Supper Club is high on the priority list when it feels right to do so.  Founding Members would be given first access to tickets.  Some of our spotlighted guests would be part of the fun!



Not Quite Ready to Join The Supper Club?

I get that! I think you should start with my guide "Top 12 Tips on How to Greet your Guests". This FREE guide will show you ways to make your guests comfortable when they arrive to your gathering.
