Celebrating life’s little (and big!) moments has been part of Tami’s world from her very first Sunday supper at Grandma’s house, oh so long ago. Being part of a wonderfully close knit and extensive family meant that someone was always celebrating something, and consequently Tami’s hospitality was planted firmly in Southern roots.

A visit to New York City as a child tugged at Tami’s cupcake loving, Kate Spade smitten, happy heartstrings. When her sweet, handsome husband took a job in New York, Tami had her bags packed and a foot in line at Magnolia Bakery without so much as batting an eyelash. An explorer by nature, Tami is constantly inspired by the city and her tireless curiosity always keeps her fancy lady heels right at the front of the latest trends.

With her heart forever faithful to her Virginia roots, Tami is one part sweet tea and one part cosmopolitan. Gregarious by nature, Tami finds joy in volunteering as a member of the New York Junior League, traveling to far off and beautiful lands, and, of course, planning a party or two.
