The Party Bee

An Arlington, Virginia  party design company with personalized southern charm.



I love serving elegant southern comfort food.  My cooking is inspired by my Mississippi roots. I collect community cookbooks from various southern junior leagues which are the basis of my favorite and most often requested items.

Some the things you’ll find gracing my hostesses’ tables are:

  • New Orleans style barbecue shrimp with garlic cheese grits soufflé served in demitasse cups with silver demitasse spoons

  • Deviled eggs with pickled okra and crispy bacon

  • Crostini with fig butter, prosciutto, arugula and balsamic glaze

  • Ham biscuits

  • Southern breakfast casseroles

  • My grandmother, Lady B’s, pimento cheese

  • Crab mornay dip with buttered toast points

  • Goat cheese and honey with thyme on crostini

  • Grilled pork tenderloin with jezebel sauce and southern yeast rolls

  • Crunchy romaine toss salad with blanched broccoli, green onions, toasted ramen noodles and sweet and sour dressing

  • Mini mason jar bananas foster banana puddings

  • Bailey’s milkshake shooters with chocolate covered espresso beans

  • Chocolate pot de cremes

  • And always lots of craft cocktails and champagne

But if your event calls for other styles and flavors, don't worry. We partner with several barbeque pit masters, private chefs, and bakers with whom we work seamlessly. Through our catering partnerships we can build the perfect menu to meet your needs.
