What do you get when you combine unique regional flavor with top interior designers and a Southern-style penchant for memorable entertaining? We’re pretty sure it looks exactly like the outdoor spring bash thrown by our friends at retail & design hub SummerHouse! Traditional Home magazine and LEE Industries partnered with SummerHouse earlier this year to host a showcase of all things local at their Ridgeland, MS location, as part of this year’s LEE Loves Local week.  SummerHouse truly pulled out all the stops with a memorable experience of live music, a tent full of local artisans, a distillery, restaurants and food trucks, and a fabulous design panel with an all star lineup including contributing editor Julia Reed, designer Shaun Smith, and Lisa Palmer of SummerHouse.

Get a taste of the festivities in this video!

Summerhouse circleThe Power of Community

Bolstered by a strong social media campaign and drive-by customer curiosity, SummerHouse experienced a record turnout for their event. The wide assortment of activities attracted crowds of visitors, some of which spent the entire day engaged in conversation and business with local vendors. Asked by the REstyle team whether events like this help build and grow business, the response from SummerHouse was an enthusiastic “ABSOLUTELY! “. Cheers to a fantastic celebration of community, and to many more like it in the future!
