soiree for sweethearts

LASTING LOVE A miscellany of lustrous accents sets the tone for an evening centered around a special duo’s 50-year marriage. The shimmer of a striped ecru linen underlines a parade of golden décor, from glass dinnerware etched with an exquisite filigree-style border to knotted napkin rings made of sparkling gold rope. Dappled votives and pillar candles festooned with decorative swirling vines further the tableau’s warm glow. Nestled in a gilded vessel, an ethereal fusion of white roses, lilies, and hypericum berries, interspersed with sprays of seeded eucalyptus and dusty miller, crowns the table. Those partaking in the revelry will savor a lineup of delectable fare, such as pickled shrimp and a flaky puff pastry filled with chicken and bacon in an herbaceous cream sauce. A showstopping cake cloaked in velvety buttercream…

sincerely: letter from phyllis hoffman

If there is one treat I can’t resist, it is a luscious layer cake—preferably vanilla with fluffy white icing, my perennial first choice since girlhood. But I’ll happily devour a slice of red velvet, chocolate, coconut, you name it. For this issue, it was so much fun to learn about Caroline’s Cakes, featured on page 21. Hardworking mom Caroline Ragsdale Reutter started her South Carolina baking business with caramel cakes made on request for friends and neighbors, and it wasn’t long before the enterprise boomed. Our staff had the pleasure of sampling an assortment of the company’s confections, and let me tell you, they are extraordinary. You won’t want to miss out.

chasing rainbows

Ready for a change after a decade of practicing law in the Washington, D.C., area, Stephanie Summerson Hall found herself dreaming in color. She recalled Sunday dinners throughout her childhood in Holly Hill, South Carolina, and the splendor of her grandmother Estelle’s spreads adorned with kaleidoscopic glassware. Upon realizing she rarely saw such vibrant tablescapes these days, she set out to bring them back, establishing Estelle Colored Glass—a collection of drinkware and cake stands characterized by elegant silhouettes and versatile hues. “I remember my grandmother had two china cabinets full of all kinds of unique finds,” Stephanie says of Estelle’s array of radiant glass accents. “It was like her own treasure chest, almost like a wardrobe.
