Southern Soirée

Color Scheme: All white with hints of green and gold 

This past weekend we celebrated my Mom’s 60th Birthday!  Here’s all the details on her Southern Charm Sixtieth Soirée at Meadowville Landing Clubhouse!

Welcome table in the foyer which had an original picture of my Mom when she was younger with baby’s breath flowers and moss covered B (for Brenda) from Bed Bath and Beyond 

Cocktail Hour Decor

All white linen and green sashes on hightop cocktail tables were from  Glamour Linen.  Wooden stumps to hold the cocktail hour food items and drink items found here

I can't take credit for the amazing balloon arch that was done by my brother! Little does he know he may have to do this at all my events lol. I just added the Vinca vines as the finishing touch. 

Cocktail Hour Menu

Shrimp dip from Bon Air Seafood 

Ham Biscuits and Crab hushpuppies catered by Defazio’s Catering

Cocktail Hour Drinks

Lemonade and Sweet Tea in mason jars. Mini water bottles with personalized tags

White Wine: New Age (90% Torrontés and 10% Sauvignon Blanc-A light, fruity and floral wine) 

Red Wine: Voület (Malvasia- A light, sweet, and bubbly wine) You can buy it online or usually at your nearest Whole Foods. 

Both wines are very affordable and crowd pleasers!

Southern Supper Decor

Family style seating with wooden chairs with padded seats (rented from Classic Party Rentals)  Kind of a funny side note, so I thought that when I ordered the magnolia flowers, I was actually getting magnolia branches instead of stems. Anyway, I had to improvise and cut the leaves and lay them more spread out along the tables with LED tea light candles and votives. Due to dinner being outside, I kept the silverware tucked in the napkins until guests sat down to eat. 

Food tables had white accordion/crinkle style taffeta tablecloths by Glamour Linens. 

Southern Supper Menu 

All food catered by Defazio's Catering except for the mac and cheese made by my mother-in-law. 

Happy Birthday Time

Right before Mom cut the cake my nephew played "Happy Birthday" song with his Trumpet. Of course she cried. Cake stand and cake topper are linked. 

Dessert Bar 

Pecan pie, Coconut pie, Lemon Chess Pie, Bread pudding and Lemon Pound cake by Burnette's Baked Goods. All pies were placed on these decorative white cake stands  with moss frames to hold labels. 

Favors 

Lemon squares in mini bags with thank you note attached by clothes pin. Unfortunately, the lemon squares are being discontinued by SAMs Club :(  

Pics of the fam!

Thank you to EVERYONE who helped make my Mom's birthday special. A special thanks to my husband and my brother they tackled it all with me, ensuring Mom enjoyed her special day!
