ROSEBRIAR DINING IN THE COUNTRY

I would like to introduce y'all to a friend of mine. Her name is Debbie Sisk and she's the owner of Rosebriar Dining, in Eads, Tennessee...just east of Memphis. I first met Debbie when I lived in DeSoto County Mississippi through another friend who called me and asked "Would you like to go to lunch out in Eads with a group of ladies?" I asked "Where is Eads and what restaurant are we going to?" It was then that I learned about Debbie Sisk...She caters afternoon teas, luncheons, and dinner parties in her home. After my first visit, I was a true fan of Rosebriar Dining.

Debbie Sisk is the epitome of a Southern lady; she loves her family and home and she loves to entertain and shop! She has been serving guests in her home for over 16 years and does no advertising--just word of mouth from one Southern lady to another!

Debbie Sisk...owner, chef, and hostess of Rosebriar Dining.
Rosebriar...an "old" Southern planter's cottage...
Come on in y'all!


Here's my friend Miss Kara and another friend Michele. They recently enjoyed afternoon tea with Debbie. They are inside the darlin' powder room!
There is always a fresh floral bouquet in the foyer...

Miss Debbie has the most proper parlor ever! In an age before we all had the de rigueur iPhone in our hand, guests were received in the parlor. The proper parlor speaks volumes about you and your family! While I don't have a parlor in my casual Florida cottage, I most certainly had a real cute parlor in my Mississippi home.

Careful attention has been paid to details in Debbie's Southern genteel parlor...Her parlor evokes romanticism and charm and is reminiscent of the late nineteenth century...The lighting fixture...The fireplace with a patterned fire screen, which is functional as well as decorative...The distinct feminine frills..

Elegant fabrics on the settee and ottoman and tapestry pillows...
The formal dining room at Rosebriar...Debbie prepares the most fabulous gourmet meals and serves guests at this fab dining room table, which comfortably seats about 16 people. Luncheons, teas, and dinners are served here with fine linens, china, and silver.
Another awesome piece...in the dining room!
The precious "Overflow Table" ...when the amount of guests being served is over 16!
Miss Kara sent me these two photos and wanted y'all to see Miss Debbie's new re-silvered tilting pot. How stunning is this silver piece y'all?!!!
The awesome tilting pot--up close...I want one! I can't believe I don't already have one!!!

Oh how I loved teaching dining and social etiquette at Miss Debbie's!!!

I set up my place settings and accoutrements on tables in her fabulous family room...
During my etiquette program, Debbie prepared the fabulous food. Then the dining tutorial was enjoyed by the ladies.

If you are ever in the Memphis area, you simply must contact Debbie Sisk and make a reservation for lunch, afternoon tea, or dinner. Her menus are customized to your tastes and preferences from a large selection of her personal recipes. Everything is homemade, prepared just for you.

You can visit Debbie at her website here. Or contact her by telephone at 901.867.7532 to reserve your place setting!
