NEW ORLEANS – It’s the beginning of a new era for a national company boasting local roots.

Launched in 2012, My House Social has rebranded and will now be known as My House Events. Biz recently reported on this change, and also recapped the company’s history and impact.

“We are so thrilled to open this next chapter, taking the sum of all we have learned through the process and reinforcing the foundation we have built over the years to propel My House Events forward as the leading event curator and collaborator,” said Schwartz, the founder and CEO My House Events.

Headquartered in New Orleans, My House Events brings people together by celebrating mealtime traditions in thoughtful settings. The company has developed an ecosystem of chefs and event planners nationwide to craft events for clients, while creating a new revenue stream for up-and-coming and chef talent.

In fact, My House Events has generated over 1 million in revenue for their chefs. But the company has also given back to the culinary community as a whole. In 2019 My House Events rendered revenue for more than 65 chefs and have fed more than 10,000 guests.

My House Events has executed events large and small, nationwide, including collaborations with such notable brands as Netflix, WeWork, Essence Festival, Kellog’s and The New York Times.

The wedding component of My House Events was sparked in 2013 when Schwartz met her now business partner, Danielle Lee, on an opportune flight where the duo bonded over their shared love of food, chefs, and event planning.

“We are incredibly excited to share the incomparable flavors of our chefs on a national scale with more event producers, guests, brides, and grooms,” said Lee, partner and chief operating officer of My House Events. “Looking forward we will take the newly generated energy from our rebrand and build upon our goal of providing an additional revenue source for chefs; all while crafting a curated dining experience for our clients.”

My House Events celebrated their debut last week, during a luncheon hosted at the Melrose Mansion on Esplanade Avenue. Chef Ericka Lassair, the owner of Diva Dawg Truck, created the appetizers and main dishes; Elysian Events Catering manned the oyster bar; Little Bushel Catering crafted the cheese board center pieces; and Cure provided the punch. Guests enjoyed desserts from Salt and Light Pastry Co., and Lord of Meringues. BBJ Linen and Passion Event Staffing also contributed to the success of the event.
