Barrett + The Boys


Barrett Prendergast, like so many moms, wears a lot of hats. In addition to caring for her two little ones, she’s also the founder of luxury gifting and floral design company, Valleybrink Road , which has been featured in publications such as Martha Stewart, Marie Claire, Sunset Magazine, C Magazine, Food & Wine, and Goop. In addition to growing a business, Barrett is passionate about creating a beautiful home and a life filled with love, laughter, adventure, and of course, lots of delicious food.


The boys are Prendergast’s husband and co-owner of Valleybrink Road, Andre Vippolis, and their young sons, Costa Valentino and Paolo Enzo — and of course their rescue pup, Frankie. As a family, Barrett and the Boys enjoy cooking farmers market inspired meals, entertaining with friends, trying new restaurants and frequenting old favorites, spending lazy days by the beach, and traveling through Italy in search of the best pasta and gelato.


Barrett and the Boys is a lifestyle blog highlighting all the things that inspire Barrett and her family. Through sharing recipes, inspiration, tips, and perspective, they hope to make you and your family’s days a bit better and brighter. Discover entertaining ideas, what it’s like to travel far and wide with little ones, why homemade almond milk is so much better than store bought, and where to find the best NY style pizza slice in LA. While they don’t claim to have mastered it all, they’re sure having fun in the process. That said, read on and try, make, bake, play, laugh, and repeat right along with them.
