.On the quintessential Spade dinner party menu:
"Ideally it's meatloaf and mashed potatoes, paired with elegant lighting, candles, and flowers. For dessert, I serve Duncan Hines chocolate cake or banana cream pie. Give me a cake like your grandmother makes!"On the best theme party in recent memory:
"Our friends Clarke and Elizabeth Swanson in Napa just threw a Maine-themed party. It was insanely perfect. There were 50-foot-long tables with barrels of seafood. We ate with our hands, cracking open lobsters and crabs and shrimp."Favorite cocktail to serve?
Southsides: "lemonade, vodka, club soda, and muddled mint."Favorite snacks?
"Triscuits. Every time I go to the market, Andy says, 'Don't forget the Triscuits!'"
