Spoleto Festival USA: Jonathan Green Pop-Up Shop

A few weeks ago we participated in a pop-up shop event unveiling world-renowned artist Jonathan Green’s costume and design sketches for Spoleto Festival USA’s 2016 production of Porgy and Bess. We recently received the professional images from photographer, Anne Rhett and had to share.

Team Hamby had a blast participating in this pre-festival event and sharing our food with gallery-goers. Guests enjoyed browsing Green’s pieces while enjoying our Tea Sandwiches, Caprese Skewers, Carolina Pit Ham Biscuits, and assorted desserts.

Hamby Happenings: Taxidermy Big Fun Party

Hamby was thrilled to be part of the hottest and most fashionable Pop Up Shop Party in all of Charleston on December 3rd at Shop Taxidermy‘s new store on 94 Spring Street. The event planners at Yoj Events set the stage for the event with their fabulous design that featured trendy pink decor! Everywhere you looked there were smiles, laughter, and of course people snacking on our delicious Hamby hors d’oeuvres. Take a sneak peak at the pictures below to get the inside scope of the party:



Our chic cuisine provided the perfect bite-sized snacks for attendees as they browsed designer handbags, shoes and bowties. The menu included our very popular Yucca Root Chips with Edamamus and famous Hamby Tea Sandwiches, as well as Shaved Beef Crostinis with Pickled Peaches and Crabcakes with our homemade 5-Pepper Muscadine Jam.

Team Hamby takes a break from the hustle and bustle for a quick pose

Hamby Catering was honored to cater the event – we’re not going to lie, we also enjoyed the tunes. The Hamby crew served up our Watermelon & Mozzarella Cubes, Hamby Housemade Fruit and Nut Crisp, Pickled Shrimp and White Truffle and Sea Salt Popcorn, among other inventive snacks. Our snacks for Saturday night had a particular focus on being infused with Lipton Tea products making them quite the conversation starter. All in all, over a three-day period, we successfully served over 1,000 meals! 

Check out the festival fun in the images below.

Real Hamby Weddings: Megan & AJ

Megan & AJ, a recent Hamby couple, said, “I do” on a beautiful September day at Magnolia Planation. With Smith photos + ink on hand to capture all the sweet moments, their day was complete perfection. The pair traveled from NYC to celebrate their love in Megan’s hometown of Charleston. Donning red lips and a feather hair fastener, Megan was one stylish bride! It was a true pleasure to be involved in their day.

Oh, and we can’t forget to mention the couple served chicken and waffles as a late night snack – the perfect dancing treat!



The couple let their love of wizardry influence their reception decor.


Notice anyone familiar? Hint: The lady on the far left thinks 98 degrees is the perfect temperature!
