We loved having Lela Rose in town for Charleston Wedding Week. I’m a big fan of her designs, and she’s a fellow Southerner! In order to celebrate the release of her new book- Pret-A-Party we decided to throw a Biscuits, Bloodys, and Book Signing party in her honor. Love having Friday a.m. parties now, going to make it my new thing!

Perfect for a ladies’ brunch, little Callie’s Biscuits in a variety of flavors- ham, jam, and cinnamon.

We set up a Do-It-Yourself Bloody Mary bar with every addition you could think of- peppers, pickled okra, shrimp skewers, even bacon slices. For those needing to go back to work we had a juice bar with fruit and veg garnishes as well. Just putting in simple containers with nice signage makes for a lovely focal point.

Of course, it’s not a party without the pups- Georgia girl was there, and our new Soiree pup, Ruthie… She was a big hit with Lela!

A good party is all about the details! For my birthday party last year, guests filled in their very own “Tara Libs” on the back of their menu cards and it was one of my all time favorite gifts. What fun to read through everyone’s stories of the mischief we’ve gotten up to over the years, something I continue to laugh about to this day. Luckily I have the Lettered Olive team to help me create these fun things, but this is something you could easily do on your own. I also love the idea of doing personalized Charades, Family Feud and Jeopardy. What do you think? Would you try it?


The front of the card listed the menu for the evening… Lady’s Island Oysters, Pickled Local Shrimp, Crispy Muscovy Duck Breast, and Chocolate Silk Tart. Yum! I am a lucky lady!
