A food editor at House Beautiful and one of the nation’s top caterers, Lulu Powers is a best-selling author and event designer who is celebrated from coast to coast for her impeccable styling, accessible culinary creations, and “sneekies,” the moniker she uses for her inventive cocktail creations.

Just as intoxicating as Lulu’s “sneekies” are her enthusiasm, exuberant personality, and bohemian flair. Part visionary and part teacher, Lulu has an uncanny ability to turn a client’s wishes into highly stylized and creative culinary experiences. Not surprisingly, she has become known as “The Entertainologist” and can boast a client list that reads like a who’s who of A-listers. At any one time, Lulu might be planning fêtes for a major Hollywood star, an Oscar-winning movie producer, a Fortune 500 CEO, and a former U.S. president.

What we love about Lulu—in addition to her exceptional catering abilities—is the sheer joy that she brings to the event-planning process. Simply put, she makes the party-planning process fun. Her wisdom, off-the-charts creativity, and playful, down-to-earth personality are inspiring and empowering. Whether you’re a novice or seasoned party host, working with Lulu means you’ll have a delicious, hassle-free event infused with imagination, and you’ll pick up some prized hosting tips along the way.

Lulu caters parties large and small in L.A. and across the country. For more information about Lulu, visit her website by clicking here. To follow Lulu on Instagram, click here.
