How to Throw a Southern Shindig

Only in Charleston, SC: winter is the perfect time of year for an outdoor gathering full of oysters, chili and live music…

See how Ooh! Events styled the perfect Southern Shindig on Kiawah Island with these party tips:

  1. A Vintage Bar:
    We love the look of an old-fashioned bar, especially in the midst of the gorgeous Kiawah Island surroundings. Stock the bar with wines, ciders, bourbons and beers for the 21+ crowd while they admire your vintage pieces. (Pictured: The Blue Sideboard Bar)

2. Rustic Accents:

Nothing says Southern decor like an eclectic mix of rustic + chic. Scatter unlikely items around centerpieces to make your tables pop! We chose antlers to compliment these bark covered moss + fern planters. (Arrangements from Out of the Garden)

3. Unconventional Seating:

Seating can be a challenge at outdoors functions when there is A LOT of ground to cover. We recommend using variations of seating to keep it fresh and fun. High chairs, low chairs, and even bed swings will keep your guests comfortable and impressed!

4. Live Music:

Let’s be honest- who doesn’t love a live show? It’s not always feasible, but consider calling in a local musician for your next party to really elevate the experience. This gathering was extra special with a performance from this guy…(We’re still a little starstruck!)

Get to know Bare Beauty’s Jessica Morse

Jessica Morse

Mark your calendars for a special event in December. The Ooh! Beautiful gals and Bare Beauty blogger Jessica Morse will team up for a special collaboration that highlights natural beauty. Based in Charleston, Jessica’s blog focuses on educating and promoting all-natural, non-toxic beauty products and healthy lifestyle practices. During the event, we’ll be offering cosmetic demos along with “clean” cocktails and light snacks.

Read on to learn more about Jessica and her inspiration behind starting Bare Beauty:

What prompted you to start blogging?

About four years ago, I was having problems with my eyesight and fertility. After seeing several physicians, a local naturopath, Dr. Sherri Jacobs, suggested I try her 21-Day Metabolic Cleanse for a complete body “reset.”  Those 21 days were pivotal in changing in the way I saw my overall health. I slept better, had more energy, and a lot of nagging physical issues that I didn’t pay much attention to disappeared. This particular cleanse is heavy on education, and it was during the 21 days that I learned about the dangers of environmental toxins and how they wreak havoc on our health. Everything from the pesticides in our food to the chemicals in our water, upholstery and personal care products, pose a threat. I also started researching the ingredients in my personal care and beauty products, only to discover most of them contained toxins and hormone-disrupting chemicals. Eventually, friends starting asking me for advice on all-natural replacements, so I created Bare Beauty.

What is your goal for Bare Beauty, and what do you hope to teach people?

I started the blog as a way to inform women of the risks they are taking each time they use products with harmful ingredients. It’s important for them to realize that today, there are amazing, all-natural alternatives that have so many benefits—it’s not just for tree huggers anymore!

Tell us about how you’ll be collaborating with the Ooh! Beautiful team.

I primarily work with online retailers, so it’s been fun partnering with the ladies at Ooh! Beautiful to plan this event. We’re excited to educate their customers about a variety of all-natural products and practices, and look forward to being a helpful resource.

Stay tuned to for more details about this special event!
