This past weekend, we had special guests at our place for a meet and greet. Growing up in the south, I love “Southern Hospitality” and everything it stands for – kindness, friendliness, and that comfortable, homey feeling that you only get around people who really make you feel welcome. I stand by this whenever I throw a party, but this time, I made it the theme.
For me, southern hospitality is thoughtful and put together but just enough so that the ‘feel’ is still relaxed. Going with this easy-going theme, I used kraft paper ‘tablecloth’ with drawn-on chargers and just a few colorful blooms.
Our menu for the night was filled with the classic southern comfort foods – mac & cheese, BBQ ribs, creamed corn, and brussel sprouts. I have some yummy new recipes to share with you guys!
I used some chalkboard paper to make these simple place cards, and wrapped the baguette with a little bow.
Votives transformed the simple kraft paper into a warm and rustic table perfect for an outdoor wedding, housewarming, or grown up baby shower. Everything looks beautiful under candlelight!
