Hosting with Southern Coastal Style

Here in Oak Island and Southport, we take hosting seriously. Our Southern charm and hospitality instincts are to make guests feel welcome and taken care of. We feed them large, home cooked meals and plenty of desserts. We especially love introducing out-of-towners to traditional local items and fresh seafood.

For these occasions, not just any dishware or accessories will do! We want to hear you "oh" and "ah" over their uniqueness and ask where they came from. Here are some essentials to create just the right welcoming, coastal, and southern feel that can all be found at Color Me Carolina.

Etched Glasses

Coastal themed glasses make that fresh squeezed lemonade or sweet tea taste just that much sweeter. Also perfect for a glass of wine, mint julep, or old fashioned.

Unbreakable Dishware

You know who we especially love to host? Sweet, sweet children! These nautical themed plates, platters and bowls will be sure to charm our younger visiting guests. Plus, no one needs to worry about breakage!

Butter Dishes and Spreaders

Another staple of Southern cooking? BUTTER! Dip your oysters, shrimp or artichoke hearts. Spread on your fresh baked cornbread or biscuits. Made all the more fun with these creative printed sayings!

Sayings and Quotes

Speaking of sayings, we love them too! Especially when they have to do with food. I think this container is missing some homemade peach ice cream! Or maybe some whipped cream to dollop on a piping hot fruit pie!


Of course, we never want anyone to go home empty handed! A jar of pickled okra, salsa, BBQ sauce or any of the wonderful treats in our Snack Shack are sure to be a wonderful reminder of the time spent at your home!


Personalized Napkins

If you are hosting a special event, ask us about personalizing napkins for the Mom to Be, Happy Couple or Newly Retired!

Whatever the occasion and where ever your guests are coming from, Color Me Carolina can help you create memorable visits. Come on in and bring your guests too!
