Morgan's Note

As I write this we’re just past St. Charles Avenue’s third annual, and most successful, “Wine, Dine & Design” tablescapes Preview Party and Luncheon benefiting Bastion. If you attended, thank you so much for your kindness and support; if you were unable to, we hope you will join us next year!

It isn’t often that we feature the same fundraiser two years in a row on our cover, but “The 50th Odyssey” presented by IberiaBank was too important for us to pass up. If you haven’t purchased your tickets for the event on November 12, make certain you join Co-Chairs Susu and Andrew Stall, Committee Chair Dana Hansel, Board President Julie George and IberiaBank’s CEO Daryl Byrd by calling 658-4121 today.

As the cooler weather blows in, it’s the perfect time to look to our feature “Claim the Cool: 14 brunches worth venturing out for” to find the perfect new spot for the most indulgent meal of the day or to rediscover an old favorite. And after you’ve done so, look to our holiday fashion feature “Vintage In Vogue” to find the perfect touch for your next gala or an entire outfit in which you’ll shine.
I love November, and not only for its crisp weather and its earlier sunsets, but for its holiday that gathers family – both blood relatives and those we choose to call so – together to celebrate all of the things for which we’re thankful.

So as the end of the month, and Thanksgiving, approaches, reach out to those for whom you’re thankful and let them know that you’re thankful for them – even if it’s just a quick email or text. It will lift their spirits and make their day!

Enjoy the weather and Happy Thanksgiving,



Morgan Packard
