Entertaining in Memphis

Today we have a guest writer! Wahoo! Teresa Daniel is a photographer living in Tennessee and she loves to entertain. She gives us a glimpse inside her Memphis home, lays out her entertaining style, and even offers up a classic Mint Julep recipe…

My charcuterie board favorites are Del Duca prosciutto, cheddar cheese slices, brie, Fresh Market wheat and water crackers, purple grapes and rosemary for garnish.
