Whether the silver spoon is on the table or in your mouth, there's no denying that silver is the capstone of southern entertaining. Silver always has a story. Maybe it was handed down from your grandmother or mother. Maybe it was given as a wedding gift. Maybe it was found in a store to commemorate an occasion. Whatever the case, southern culture is steeped and served up over ice with a sprig of mint and a sprinkle of sugar in a silver cup. And really, what is more beautiful?
