Have y’all checked out the new hit reality show on Bravo called Southern Charm??!
Well if not, you should because its a good ole time if you ask me. Of course I don’t have a whole lot to do with the South, but I can sure appreciate and gather inspiration from the Southern lifestyle — like my obsession with BBQ and southern accents (and now my obsession with Southern Charm).. so when Bravo asked if I was down with watching the show and giving it a little review I thought to myself “How in hells bells will I make this a fun post?” Um DUH, lets get a Chef in to create a whole Southern Inspired 5 course meal, decorate a table, and throw a mid day party with cocktails.. Obvs.
Here’s a run down of what we ate and how we styled:
The over the top delicious menu called for an equally inspired table. I didn’t want the table to outdo the food so I kept it simple. Our southern meal had a decidedly California backdrop complete with gorgeous one of a kind sea glass vases we filled with beautiful leafy greens to add texture and dimension. We used a simple burlap runner to add additional texture and interest and paired it all with my favorite patterned dishes, colorful napkins and simple white linen placemats, it had the perfect amount of style for that fancy free vibe we were after.
In the end, I got my grub on, celebrated Southern Charm and got a buzz!!
