“Hidden at the end of an antiquated brick alleyway and through a wrought-iron gate lies Charleston’s most picturesque dining spot, a courtyard lit with carriage lanterns, palmettos rustling overhead. Planters Inn, at the corner of Market Street and Meeting Street, provides a decadently soulful oasis in the very epicenter of the great city’s historic district.” — From The Art of Entertaining

Rizzoli, the famed publisher of beautifully illustrated books, recently released Art of Entertaining: Menus, Flowers, Table Settings, and More for Memorable Celebrations, a behind-the-scenes look at seventeen seasonal parties, both intimate and grand, hosted by award-winning venues located across North America. Author Jessica Kerwin Jenkins, a contributing writer for Vogue and The New York Times, provides a fascinating peek into the rich history of the distinguished Relais and Châteaux collection of beautiful independent hotels and restaurants.

Filled with recipes and decorating tips for creating exquisite affairs, The Art of Entertaining is ideal reading for hosts and hostesses seeking party-planning inspiration from some of the nation’s most admired hoteliers and chefs. 

One chapter is dedicated to Planters Inn and Peninsula Grill's spectacular Night of 1,000 Lights dinner party.
