Academy Awardâ€“winning actress, producer, and entrepreneur Reese Witherspoon invites you into her world, where she infuses the southern style, parties, and traditions she loves with contemporary flair and charm.
Reese Witherspoonâ€™s grandmother Dorothea always said that a combination of beauty and strength made southern women â€śwhiskey in a teacup.â€ť We may be delicate and ornamental on the outside, she said, but inside weâ€™re strong and fiery.
Reeseâ€™s southern heritage informs her whole life, and she loves sharing the joys of southern living with practically everyone she meets. She takes the South wherever she goes with bluegrass, big holiday parties, and plenty of Dorotheaâ€™s fried chicken. Itâ€™s reflected in how she entertains, decorates her home, and makes holidays special for her kidsâ€”not to mention how she talks, dances, and does her hair (in these pages, you will learn Reeseâ€™s fail-proof, only slightly insane hot-roller technique). Reese loves sharing Dorotheaâ€™s most delicious recipes as well as her favorite southern traditions, from midnight barn parties to backyard bridal showers, magical Christmas mornings to rollicking honky-tonks.
Itâ€™s easy to bring a little bit of Reeseâ€™s world into your home, no matter where you live. After all, thereâ€™s a southern side to every place in the world, right?
