About Us

My House Social is a culinary curation company that is revolutionizing the event space and hospitality industry on a national scale.  Headquartered in New Orleans, My House Social champions the power of people coming together over a meal and celebrates food as a universal language that transcends boundaries to foster meaningful connections.

Barrie Schwartz founded My House Social in 2012 at her house, where she hosted family and friends for a series of successful pop-ups that showcased a variety of local chef talent. Seven short years later,  My House Events has evolved into a nationally recognized event planning leader. 

My House Social is driven by a mission to disrupt and enhance the traditional special and private event landscape. My House Events differentiates itself in the industry by carefully curating an ecosystem of chefs and event planners nationwide to craft personalized events for clients large and small while creating a new revenue stream for up-and-coming and notable chef talent. This hyper-collaborative approach ensures unparalleled and refreshingly unique food and beverage experiences for each event.


My House Social was conceptualized in 2012 in the New Orleans home of founder Barrie Schwartz. Schwartz began hosting a variety of pop ups showcasing local chef talent which quickly gained a cult following. My House Social’s roots were founded at Schwartz’s home, hence My House Social was born. A home represents something we make our own and to this day this sentiment is at the heart of the company. 

In 2013 Barrie 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. After planning her own wedding, Lee brought her firsthand wedding planning expertise to the company and My House Events quickly began to dominate the field.

My House Social is now a known leader in the event planning and catering space, actively changing the way events are viewed in New Orleans and nationwide. My House Social executes all events, large or small, with a holistic approach that is unmatched.
