We just opened our first store in Birmingham, Alabama, and Southern Living helped us to celebrate with an epic outdoor feast at the Jones Valley Teaching Farm! The farm is in the middle of downtown Birmingham, and exists to make its community a healthier place.

Watch this ultimate farm-to-table dinner come together with a menu full of produce that was sourced right there on the spot, and a killer bluegrass band. Plus scroll down for 4 party tips from Southern Living!

1. Create drama with a rambling centerpiece that runs the entire length of the table. Be sure to vary the heights and sizes of the containers to keep the look more casual.

2. There’s nothing like live music to bring a party to life. Birmingham’s own old-time string band The Flying Jenny’s entertained our party guests throughout the evening.
