Chris Nease: Entertaining Expert

About Chris

Hi! I’m Chris, a home entertaining expert, digital content creator, and food photographer. For over 20 years I’ve designed parties and small events for friends, clients, and charitable organizations.

In addition to being the founder of Celebrations At Home, I’ve shared my expertise through freelance contributions and brand collaborations. I’ve been featured in Celebrate magazineWoman’s World, Cottages & BungalowsYum Food & Fun for KidsOcala Style, Better Homes & Gardens online,, and authored a chapter on holiday party planning in the book Clutterbugs Guide to an Organized Christmas. I also volunteer my time to Operation Shower, a non-profit organization providing group baby showers to wives of our deployed service men.

I live in Richmond, Virginia with my husband, and have two children in college. My philosophy is that every party should include the right mix of people, have interesting details, and offer delicious food & cocktails!
