What a perfect way to celebrate both as we kick-off the holiday season with a venue to celebrate the best a coastal holiday has to offer.
A Lowcountry Christmas Beaufort Gala 2010 will capture the essence of the holidays as guests immerse their five senses into celebrating what it means to experience a Lowcountry holiday. The gala will be held December 11 at The Beaufort Inn, 809 Port Republic Street, in the middle of the downtown historic district. Starting at 6 p.m., guests will follow a candle-lit pathway of red lanterns to the inns courtyard and Tabby Gardens as they enjoy hors doeuvres that capture the spirit and the natural resources of the sea.
The award-winning Southern Graces Catering will present a menu that includes She-crab cappuccino, fried green tomato canaps and Southern shrimp sushi along with its signature holiday beverage, the Sugar Plum Visions cocktail, during the first hour of the gala.
Guests will proceed to the Holiday Bliss food stations presenting roasted artichoke dip, prime rib crostini, fig and goat cheese flatbread and Riesling shrimp atop roasted corn cakes.
The gala is designed so guests can celebrate as well as prepare for the holidays. Several silent and live auction items are handpicked with holiday shopping in mind.
As guest mingle and meander among the auction items and food stations, Buddy Kosic and the Lowcountry Jazz Band will provide the background tempo.
Later in the evening, a cigar roller and scotch/brandy bar will be available in the courtyard.
