Dearest readers, clear your schedules on Sunday for the party that is sure to be the highlight of the season. The 3 Points Food Court, 409 Orchard St., will host a Bridgerton Brunch on April 18 from noon to 4 p.m.
This Bridgerton Brunch will feature live music from Fellowship of Love, food from the Pie Society food truck, a fashion show from local designer and SCAD alumni Daniette, and multiple local vendors. Entry is free, and Bridgerton-style clothing is highly encouraged for those hoping to be chosen as the diamond of the season.
Lady Katie Siplon, director of marketing at 3 Points Food Court, said Bridgerton Brunch will be the first of many themed brunches to hit the recently-opened food truck park. Siplon said she and her team have been planning the event for months, handpicking local vendors to attend.
Siplon said when choosing a food vendor, she really wanted to stay as on-theme as possible.
“Pie Society is the one that makes the most sense,” Siplon said.
The local British food truck will be serving up their usual menu, including fish and chips, meat pies and more. They will also offer special pre-ordered Bridgerton tea party boxes for two. Boxes include finger sandwiches, scones, a sausage roll, pecan pies, sponge cake and English shortbread.
The delicious Pie Society fare will be paired with BYOB-style drinks, Siplon said.
Ace of Spades mobile bar will be on site pouring mixers and mocktails, and there will be a mimosa bar set up. All guests have to do is bring their favorite sparkling champagne or liquor. Drink responsibly readers, Lady Whistledown is always watching.
Siplon said everyone involved in Bridgerton Brunch is going all out.
Christina Zielglar, aka “Salty Southerner,” has gotten creative with promoting Bridgerton Brunch, writing announcements Lady Whistlendown-style. Daniette is also in the spirit, and is planning to showcase her designs with some Bridgerton-style accessories. Confetti Crate will be decorating 3 Points Food Court to the queen herself’s standards.
Other local vendors who will be gracing guests with Bridgerton-themed merchandise include Ivory and Beau, Cast and Grey Botanicals, Lite Foot Company, Savannah Riverboot Company, Punch Bowl Bag Lady, Elegant Bites, Dee’s Deelish Desserts, Charmed by Nylah, Kitchen Vixon Bakery and the Cookie Queen.
“It’s going to be big,” Siplon said. “Everyone who’s coming out is going to be on-theme. Who knew that Bridgerton would be this big of a deal?”
Siplon said the over-the-top vendors are exactly what Bridgerton Brunch needs to make it an event that all the lords and ladies will never forget.
“I hope they feel like they are there on the set of Bridgerton, and that for an afternoon they get to be in that era and experience that fun atmosphere,” Siplon said. “I hope they leave excited about the next themed brunch because they know it’s going to be extra.”
If only the lovely Simon and Daphne could leave their duties raising the future Duke of Hastings and join us for brunch. Readers, we must have extra tea on their behalf.
