Julie Blanner, Food Blogger

Hi! I’m Julie, the voice behind the lifestyle blog filled with do-it-yourself inspiration for effortless entertaining, easy recipe and home design.

I began sharing my effortless style of entertaining through this blog in 2008. Prior to my blogging career, I planned beautiful weddings, lavish events and intimate parties for clients through Coordinately Yours, the event planning firm I founded in 2002.

Growing up as a quintessential Midwestern girl in St. Louis, I spent countless hours on my grandmother’s farm, crafting and baking. After working for a catering company during college, my love for creating recipes and beautiful food was born. My passion for event styling combined with that love for baking and cooking, led me to open my event planning business directly out of college.

After years in the event industry, I turned my signature style into a lifestyle blog with a collection of easy recipes, accessible home design, and entertaining advice. I have designed our home with a soft, neutral interior to reflect the love of our family and intimate gatherings, allowing our loved ones to be the color.

Join me in my journey of celebrating life’s little moments, living simply, and finding beauty in each detail and imperfection. Let’s connect! Pinterest, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and you can subscribe by email to receive new posts and seasonal inspiration here.
