With more than 15 years event planning and catering experience Tara

wedding. We learn some of the traditions of the south and her favorite
ways to make each wedding different. Hear practical green tips and
recurrent themes that you may want to consider. She discusses the
importance of making the guests happy and welcome. She explains what
really makes a party memorable. Brides, wedding planners and anyone
who loves to entertain will appreciate Tara’s passion and be inspired
to incorporate soiree elements for your special event.
Here is Tara’s signature Lowcountry Lemonade recipe which can also be found in her beautiful book:
Fill a Zombie glass with plenty of crushed ice
Add 1 ounce Peach Schnapps
Fill remainder glass with lemonade (pink or regular depending on the color you want)
You can change the color to blue by using a small amount of Blue Curacao or to red by using Grenadine.
Use fresh mint to garnish or add a flower (not a poisonous one!)
