Growler Station & Bourbon Bar Lay The Ground Works For This Gentleman’s Southern Living Fete

Make no mistake, today’s feature is geared toward the masculine {and of course the ladies who appreciate a more gentlemanly pastime!} dripping in some of southern living’s finer instruments of leisure!  One of my favorite crews from South Carolina has returned, this time throwing an engagement party focusing more on the groom to be!  Sampling from some truly terrific southern treats, racks of BBQ ribs slaw & the like were the meal of choice, while a craft beer growler station was set up to wash down the tasty meats.  For those seeking a more refined sipping style, a Bourbon Bar was erected, featuring some of the south’s finest ranging from light honey to deep amber in tones.  What is celebrating with the boys if not puffing on a fine, freshly hand rolled cigar made on site to bring that extra special touch!   Upstairs at Midtown played the perfect host for this wonderfully masculine affair, featuring rooms with exposed brick, barn wood flooring and elegant molding.  Tables were set with gold rimmed fish plates, vintage silverware and adorned with touches like deer antlers, gentlemen’s flasks and silver camping cups.  Being a bit of a tomboy myself, I connect with this vibe on some many levels.  Its earthy, woody, strong, dark where it needs to be, a wonderfully neutral based color palette, and perfectly zeros in on  some of the finer things to please all inner foodies & frosty beverage lovers alike.  This masculine leaning affair is the perfect example of why not all wedding things should simply be fluffy pink and pretty.  As you can see, every now and again, strong earthy with a touch of androgyny makes for one heck of an amazing fete!

A Note From The South Carolina Crew:

Celebrate his putting a ring on it with an engagement party tailored to the groom-to-be! Revel in the finer aspects of contemporary Southern living and every gentleman’s favorite things as the wedding planning gets underway, as showcased by this hunting-lodge-meets-fabulous-party inspiration shoot.

A bourbon bar, cigar rolling station, and a growler station of craft beers offer the groom and groomsmen-to-be a plethora of ways to celebrate tying the knot before sending them off with a Brackish Bow Tie favor. Everyone can happily tuck into that enormous, mouth-watering rack of BBQ ribs, coleslaw, and a modern but elegant cake. Exposed brick, deer antlers, silver camp cups, a vintage shipyard chain, and gentlemen’s flasks help round out an elegant masculine theme that even the most feminine of brides is sure to love, while fine trout-adorned china, metallic chargers, and hops make for chic, colorful details.
