PureWow recently sat down with the entrepreneur to talk about her latest partnership with BIC EZ Reach, where she and Snoop Dog designed a handful of new lighters. The new campaign spotlights the convenience of the BIC EZ Reach lighter, designed for lighting hard-to-reach places while helping to keep fingers away from the flame. During the interview, we asked the media mogul/cookbook author about her best tips for hosting an outdoor gathering with friends and family.
And while there is a ton that needs to be done to host a lavish summer party, summer party, according to Stewart, there’s one thing people often forget to plan for: rain. “As an alternative to having sunny nice warm weather, it might rain,” the writer revealed. “So, make sure you have a covered area where you can all move to get out of the rain.”
Turns out, Stewart is currently in the process of creating a permanent solution to this problem at her own home—something she calls a “dining pavilion.”
“I just finished the sides of what I'm calling the dining pavilion—you know, I just wanted to make up some funny name—near my swimming pool,” she continued. “And I'm putting a peaked roof on it that is rainproof, and I can put a big table underneath it and chairs. We can have dinner out there even if it is raining elsewhere. A pergola is pretty but a pergola doesn't have a roof on it and that kind of defeats the purpose. I also don't have any big porches anywhere, so this is the perfect solution to a porch.”
Suddenly, our backyard needs an upgrade.
