Our dear friend, Monica, over at Lavin Label has done it again! She’s created a dreamy outdoor entertaining scene fit for the pages of any lifestyle guide. We were delighted to see our custom embroidered cocktail napkins taking a part in the spotlight! It’s true that any cocktail party must have a fabulous cocktail napkin, and this was the perfect setup.

We love the way Monica displayed her drink recipe and invited her best canine friends to dress up along with the guests. Head over to Lavin Label and see her post!

As many of you already know, there’s no holiday quite like St. Patrick’s Day in Savannah – or in the life of a Savannah McCarthy in particular! This year was so much fun to continue the tradition in the parade and have the entire family surrounding us.

Since it was Lillian’s very first St. Patrick’s Day, it was extra special to see her light up at the parade. Rhett, of course, was a proud Big Brother showing off his veteran parade status. Each year we grow to treasure this tradition more and more!

Every March 17th, has plenty of events leading up to it keeping the McCarthy plan rooted in family and heritage. It’s more than tacky shamrock sweaters and green beer for us, it’s a celebration of generations. Each year the entire family walks in the Savannah parade, and beforehand we make it a point to stop for a mimosa or Bloody Mary at the Mansion on Forsyth Park. Once the parade is over, we don’t bother with downtown shenanigans. We all make our way to the family matriarch’s house on the marsh and and have lunch together. Just us, no mardi gras beads in sight!

Year after year I can’t wait to see how Rhett and Lillian come to value this day as I have come to value it.

What are some of your favorite St. Patrick’s Day traditions, or family traditions in general?

Already looking forward to next year!

Take a look by seeing the whole magazine here! You might even see some familiar faces (pssst right after Emily’s picks you’ll get to see Lance and David of Parker Kennedy Living!)

All of the best places to work, stay, and play as noted by a girl about town!

Masters (4 of 56)

This year, Augusta National Golf Club may be the 2nd most coveted spot to watch the Masters Tournament if you do your party just right. You know what that means, right? Pimento cheese, great golf, and a little hooch. Your party can be all that (and a bag of $1 Masters Chips) with the proper set-up.

Masters (42 of 56)

Masters (1 of 56)

First thing’s first: the quality of your pimento cheese will be a hot topic. We knew right away there wasn’t much question of where we’d find ours. Callie’s Biscuits of Charleston makes a pimento cheese that almost seems too elevated for plain bread… but tradition is tradition, and the marriage sticks! You can create variety with their 2-pack, click here to purchase online, as they offer traditional and spicy versions of the great southern classic.

We love the idea of your food array staying true to the Augusta National variety. You can whip up your own egg salad sandwiches, a quick bar-b-que, and find your favorite chips to serve alongside. It’s simple and rooted in golf legend. Just make sure you don’t even dare to skip the peach ice cream sandwiches for dessert!

Masters (29 of 56)

Refreshments may be the most sought after party favor, so these cannot be overlooked. What says “Georgia classic” more than iced tea and an ode to citrus? Add some spirits, and now we’re talking. Straight from the tables of Augusta National, we commissioned O and O Hooch’s Fizzy Limeade mixer for the most effervescent and thirst quenching drinks in town. Finding the limeade was easy because O and O Hooch has created a one of a kind mixture that will only rival the host in bubbliness! Iced tea, however, proves to be a more difficult crowd to impress.  We didn’t have to look far, though, Oliver Pluff found US. (Serendipitous, no?)

Another gem based in Charleston, SC – these Oliver Pluff cold brew teas bring flavor infusion to the next level and your guests will be writing home about it. The apricot and jasmine flavors are a perfect compliment to the peace ice cream and the bold pimento cheese. Masters (21 of 56)

Remember, it isn’t golf without Arnold Palmer! Once you’ve concocted your vodka and fizzy limeades, enjoyed your sweet or unsweet tea… don’t forget to mix the two together. This may not be the current trend at Augusta National, but sometimes new customs tend to be the best future treasures.

Whoever ends up with the green jacket, you’ll have the trophy for best tribute to this years Masters Tournament!

Share your photos with us, let us see how you entertain.
