Throw a Sweet Tea Front Porch Party

The day dawns sunny and bright, and a soft breeze is whispering an impossible-to-turn-down invitation to come outside. Share an enchanting afternoon—and delightful summer fare—with friends on the front porch.

FRONT PORCH LIVING

To celebrate these halcyon days of summer, stage an impromptu get-together on the porch. Hydrangea blue and sunshine yellow inspire the palette, so tuck fresh-cut flowers into a variety of on-hand containers to set the scene. Choose pretty baskets and vintage linens for easy accents, then sit back, relax, and enjoy the view!

SIMPLY SOUTHERN


A simple menu makes porch entertaining a breeze. We put a Southern Lady spin on favorite regional fare with a lively version of pimiento cheese and a fruit-infused blend of that essential refresher, sweet tea. These simply fresh recipes—from a Creamy Basil Dip paired with vegetables to a delightful fruit salad—will have you ready for fun and fellowship in no time. Just save some room for our mouthwatering Lemon Coolers!
