We enjoyed catering the @birminghamhomeandgarden inspiration home preview party.
Guests enjoyed BBQ Martinis — a twist on traditional southern comfort food, Charcuterie Cones — it’s like a charcuterie board in a cup, and Creole Deviled Eggs — the only devilish thing about them is that they’re gone in two bites.
The small bites were paired with refreshing cocktails from @redmontdistilling. All the designers and decor left us feeling inspired, creative and empowered to redecorate our own space.

More about the @birminghamhomeandgarden inspiration home:
"Homewood just got a little more charming thanks to our 2020 Inspiration Home! This year, we’ve partnered with Willow Homes to bring you a classic Southern cottage in the heart of Homewood. The classic architecture blends perfectly with the cottages of Homewood yet is updated for modern living. You’ll love the rough-faced stone, cedar-shake roofing, and artisan siding that provides textural details to this traditional home.The front door opens to an entry hall complete with a library wall, window seat, and dramatic two-story staircase. The main-level master suite includes his-and-hers closets, a pedestal tub, and a zero-entry shower. The vaulted dining/kitchen space features beamed ceilings and a telescoping door opening onto the courtyard. Upstairs offers three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a cozy den. A second interior staircase accesses a den and suite above the garage. Outdoor living areas include a front terrace, entry porch, dining porch, and a private courtyard for entertaining."

Families from throughout Alabama and across the United States come to Children’s of Alabama and UAB Hospital seeking life-saving treatment for their critically ill children. Often times, they come to Birmingham exhausted, scared and financially drained as they struggle to pay for overwhelming medical bills.
