2nd Annual Bluegrass & BBQ
On June 25th, 2015 we hosted our 2nd Annual Bluegrass & BBQ in our garden courtyard, Sperry tent, and two spacious side lawns at Willowdale Estate. Our guests enjoyed Bluegrass music provided by Honeysuckle Hoedown, mouth-watering barbecue, and local beer provided by the Ipswich Ale Brewery tapmobile.
Our menu included southern favorites like fried green tomatoes, watermelon with spicy feta and mint, and corn fritters, available alongside a full range of signature drink options like the Mint Julep, Sweet Tea, and the Gin Fizz served from our beautiful bars in the garden courtyard.
Our event coordinators planned the event perfectly with custom signage, decorations, and lawn games. We want to send out a big thank you to Shane Godfrey Photography for getting so many great photos of the event!
