As glorious spring comes alive across the South, we embrace the jubilant season with a spirit of revelry. Our annual homage to entertaining, this issue is filled with colorful floral arrangements, creative hostess gifts, fabulous alfresco tablescapes, and more. You’ll find fresh inspiration in anticipated features like New Looks for Old China and Party Time, where we offer ideas for an outdoor Easter feast, a 50th anniversary celebration, and a get-together to welcome a newborn. Delectable seasonal menus complement each party theme—from robust meals to delightful hors d’oeuvres—along with a lineup of flavorsome finger sandwiches. See spring unfold throughout the region, and join us on the next stop in our historical landmarks travel series at the Heyward-Washington House in Charleston; tour a revitalized 19th-century Dutch Colonial in Huntsville, Alabama; or relish the beautiful, budding surrounds from the comfort of your own front porch.
