Today, you can learn a myriad of fun facts about the ladies of Natchitoches, Louisiana. Did you know, for instance, that Bette Davis wanted to play Ouiser? She even invited Harling to tea to court the role. And Meg Ryan, rather than Julia Roberts, was originally slated to play Shelby but dropped the role to be in When Harry Met Sally.
We decided to celebrate Steel Magnolias in true Southern Lady style, with a party replete with blush and bashful. Enjoy a menu full of refined fare. There’s even a pink cocktail perfect for toasting the ladies closest to you.
