I was super thrilled to attend Coastal Living magazine 20th anniversary celebration “A Table for 20”. It was  a night under the stars with coastal inspired cuisine, cocktail and design.  I recently purchased a lot in Habersham, so you can imagine my excitement that coastal living magazine chose this charming location out of all the coastal communities to have this amazing anniversary celebration.

The table for 20 event featured a cocktail reception under the 300 year old oak tree, followed by a 3 course dinner to a dessert station. Each tablescape was set for twenty guests and decorated by a Coastal Living interior designer  inspired from Coastal Living’s archives of magazine covers from their 20 years of publication. Jean Marie and myself were in heaven admiring all the unique tables. My eyes were glued to my camera lens. I was so blown away by the organization of this event, the service was impeccable, the food and drink were plenty! The event was organized by the community of Habersham Marketplace which is the heart and soul of the award-winning town.





…under an oak tree with the sounds of blue grass music we laughed, talked and admired everything.






Split Pea Soup/Arugula salad/Choice of beef,chicken or fish/Dessert station.

There were over 400 people attending this even and the food and drink were delicious, but most important the staff was the best I have seen for such a big event. If you asked for a glass of water you got it in 5 minutes. I was just amazed. Thanks to Jody at Plum Productions for a great job in organizing.

  2. Gorgeous table settings. I love how each table features a different color palette and theme. It must have been a wonderful evening. Where were you? It looks a little bit like Beaufort. But, was it Charleston? Thanks for sharing the photos.

    1. That was in Beaufort, A small community called Habersham, I plan on moving there sometime in the next few years. Maybe we can meet up for tea or coffee in Savannah some day.

      1. Sounds wonderful! My parents lived in Garden City SC (between Myrtle Beach and Murrell’s Inlet) after retirement (from VA) in the 1980’s. So, I explored Low Country with them on many day trips during my visits. Now –I’ve been in Savannah since 2008 and love it. The southern coastal lifestyle is so enjoyable to me.
