Southerners are always up for a good party. We’ll jump at the chance to throw a get-together for any reason—or for no reason at all. Our love of entertaining is rooted in our deep attachment to home, where we open the door and welcome others inside to share a little of our heart. Southern Lady’s first-ever Celebrations special issue brings you page after page of festive ideas to mark occasions large and small. Some pay tribute to Southern traditions, while others capture the simple joys of everyday life. From jovial spring revelries and laid back summer soirées to comforting fall gatherings and grand winter fêtes, year in and year out, there’s so much to celebrate in every glorious season. Let’s do it up in style!
