A Charleston Garden Lunch

On Saturday, October 14, G&G and Terrain partnered for a third event together: A Charleston Garden Lunch benefiting the Charleston Parks Conservancy. The garden party took place at a private residence in the heart of historic downtown Charleston with G&G readers and friends. Guests enjoyed daytime cocktails and appetizers, followed by a family-style meal, all while soaking in the home’s beautiful gardens and landscape.
