sincerely: letter from phyllis hoffman

Happy New Year! I always look forward to beginning anew as I turn the calendar page and imagine what is to come. Now is the time to dream and plan for the months ahead, and this issue is full of ideas to get you off to a splendid start, from simple touches that brighten your home to a cozy mountain getaway in Highlands, North Carolina (page 45). This past fall, we hosted our Southern Lady Celebration in our hometown of Birmingham. What a delight it was to share a weekend of fellowship with so many readers and friends! Among the highlights was an evening with Lori Allen, owner of Bridals by Lori and star of the TLC reality series Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta. During her talk, she moved us…

BRIGHT BEGINNINGS A few years back, my husband and I initiated an annual tradition of hosting a New Year’s Day brunch. It’s always a casual drop-in affair, with a big pot of hoppin’ John on the stove and a steady stream of friends coming by to catch up after the rush of the Christmas season.

Get a glimpse of the beautiful images our social media friends have shared with us, capturing their own inspiration from the pages of Southern Lady. Top row: Stroll a garden path in mild midwinter temperatures like @hillheady in Charleston. Flowers in shades of pink are standout stars on @olga_ofelia_living’s layered table. @cnsdesignsanddecor’s hydrangea-filled sink and (middle row) @thepartywagons’ addition of citrus alongside her floral arrangement are sure ways to brighten blustery days. Feminine pink glassware and blooms have @goingforgrace all set for a glam Galentine’s Day party. Bottom row: Tulips ready to be placed in vases by @happydaysfarm remind us that spring is on its way. @athomeinthewildwood’s Valentine’s Day table is as sweet for the eyes as the taste buds thanks to festive plates topped with homemade confections. What’s not…

glimpse of a golden era

As you step through the front door of the Belleview Inn, the hotel’s namesake waltz emanates from a player piano, setting the tone for a relaxed getaway amid traces of Gilded Age glamour and Old Florida charm. Original details, painstakingly refurbished, and commissioned artwork give voice to countless tales of the past while also contributing to its modern-day pizzazz. Railroad and steamship tycoon Henry Plant opened the Hotel Belleview in 1897 as a winter retreat for fellow industrialists and New England socialites. As the railways expanded into central-west Florida’s wilderness, Henry envisioned his new property as a luxe retreat that would pave the way for tourism in what now encompasses the Belleair community and neighboring Clearwater. “He really was instrumental in founding this area,” says Christine Reda, one of several docents…
