Optometry zone meeting and dinner at Sweet Gum Bottom Bed and Breakfast

The Optometry zone meeting and dinner was this past Monday evening. It is always good to see these men at the meeting. Dr. Algood of Centerville Alabama gave a very informative program helping these doctors to specialize in the care and treatment of their patients.

It was a delicious meal provided by Sweet Gum Bottom Bed and Breakfast and we thank you guys for coming out and hope to see you at the next meeting. Thanks a bunch!

Lollie O's Catering for Greg White's campaign in Opp, Alabama

We had a fantastic time this past Monday evening catering for a campaign kickoff for Greg White in Opp Alabama. Josh Driver with Covington Eye Care, opened with a few words of encouragment, followed by Greg White. There was a time for question and answering which gave everyone a chance to hear from Greg on their topic of interest.

Dr. and Mrs. Burgess were gracious enough to host this event in their lovely home. The food was centered in the formal dining room with beverages and coffee being served by the friends of Greg and Jan White. The menu they chose for this event was fresh fruit, and vegetables with various dips, Bacon and swiss dip with crackers, ranch and bacon sndwich wraps, marinted cheeses, Chocolate chip ball with nilla wafers, lemon and chewy cookies.

The food was great and the conversations were wonderful! Thanks again for choosing Sweet Gum Bottom Bed and Breakfast to cater your special event!

Send your Mom to "Time Out" at Sweet Gum Bottom Bed and Breakfast

"Time Out" is just what you can give your Mom for Mother's Day. Time out at Sweet Gum Bottom Bed and Breakfast. We will have everything peaceful and quiet...just like she likes it! A bottle of sparling juice for her to sip while lounging in the jacuzzi, dessert in the evening while relaxing in the garden and a comfortable bed for a good nights sleep. We'll let her sleep late and have a delicious breakfast for her when she wakes up! What more could a Mom ask for, Oh...and she can bring someone with her if she likes or she can come by self.

Our 2nd Mother's Day package is a "Time Out, Day Package". Start your morning off here at the bed and breakfast with a delicious breakfast then relax the rest of the day in the peace and quiet. Read, lay in the hammock, rock on the porch or just lay in bed all day! We will prepare a salad lunch for her to enjoy and after lunch she will be treated to a one hour massage in her room. The day winds down at 3:00pm. Completely relaxed and ready to go home!

If you like, we can prepare a special gift certificate for you to give her that she can use at her convenience. Just give us a call and we will take care of the rest.

Beautiful outdoor sping receptions

It is beautiful this spring and we had a wonderful time with our wedding guests this weekend! Libby Gantt, daughter of Kyle and Susan Gantt was married in a beautiful Catholic ceremony and the weather was absolutely gorgeous for their outdoor reception in the gardens at their home.

On Friday evening we prepared  a rehearsal dinner hosted by the grooms mom, Ms. Liz Cotter. She chose a delicious menu of prime rib, cheesy potato bake, green bean bundles and rolls. Along side of this menu was a fresh salad and corn and crawfish soup (soup, prepared by Liz). Chocolate cake, the brides favorite, was served for dessert. What a wonderful evening!

The next morning, the bridesmaids and all the ladies of the 2 families, met here at the bed and breakfast for a Bridesmaid's Brunch. A sausage and cheese casserole, grits with gouda cheese, home made biscuits and jellies, smoked sausage, fresh fruits and apple crisp was among the items served. What a great time of mingling and sharing of both families.

Thank you Susan and Kyle and Liz for choosing Sweet Gum Bottom Bed and Breakfast! We thoroughly enjoyed having your family stay with us! We look forward to seeing them again in the near future!

Spring landscaping for an Alabama bed and Breakfast

We are having a fabulous time doing our spring landscaping! The weather is pretty and the flowers are blooming like they are glad to be here! I'm sure every Alabama Bed and Breakfast is hard at work sprucing things up for the spring and summer! Check one out and see what you think!

Bed and breakfasts are great little get away places and the gardens are usually beautiful this time of year! We have planted impatience, sun colius, dusty miller, and I can't recall all of the other things. Plus I most likely could not spell the correctly either, so just come out and look for yourself. You will enjoy the peace and quiet and might fall in love with our hammock! It is a beautiful day to be in the garden at Sweet Gum Bottom bed and breakfast!
