James Farmer, Southern Gentleman

Last weekend I had the pleasure of attending a luncheon in Perry, Georgia featuring James Farmer as the Speaker.  James is a professional gardener, floral and interior designer, cook, and lifestyle expert.  He is the author of several books which I have written about on this blog.  He is also an editor-at-large for Southern Living Magazine.

James kept all the ladies laughing out loud and nodding their heads in agreement with all his Southern stories...memories of times growing up in the South...reminding us all of times with our mamas, sisters, and Southern lady friends!

The dining room of the Houston Lake Country Club was decorated with a garden theme...

Mimosas and Bloody Marys were served...

Each table featured a garden-style centerpiece...

As expected, the food was delicious!

Since I already have all of James' books, I pre-ordered his new book "A Time to Celebrate."  It will be out in September and will feature recipes, entertaining, and Southern stories.  James can set a pretty table y'all!


I wore my Lilly Pulitzer 'Ten Ton Bouquet' shift with orange Revas, a bee-charmed Bosom Buddy Bag, and a darling pearl necklace with a bee charm, by B The Collection.
