Savannah Bee Co. celebrates their new location, Mead Bar and all their sweet honey products tonight at 5:00 pm on King Street. There will be food, a raffle and $5 mead tastings, with all your favorite people. Come, celebrate Savannah Bee.
Savannah Bee Co. is a beautiful place, where everything they do blossoms from their love of honeybees. Passionate founder Ted Dennard, who might just be on hand tonight, said "Our products deliver, they have real bee products in them, and I'm not sure everybody can say that." The honeys from Savannah Bee are curated by Ted, who knows the best of the best based on where the nectar comes from, and what gives it flavor, taste and color.
In addition to varieties of honey, you can try the bee products like luxury Royal Jelly Body Butter, shampoos and conditioners, Bee the Balm Gift Sets and our favorite, Orange Blossom Honey Hand Soap.

While you're there, pick up a little honey to make Author Karen White's favorite drink, The Southern Queen Bee. We think Rosemary or Lavender Honey would be excellent, but you can taste and choose your own.

Carolina Berthet Davila paints beautiful watercolors, usually the size of a greeting card and they are destined for that purpose. "My cards are one way to keep in touch with friends and family as well as a way to express emotions such as love and gratitude. It is a way to show appreciation for what others have done for us and to let them know that we are thinking about them, remembering the special moments in their lives
I enjoy capturing moments and objects that have a special meaning to me or to the person who will be receiving the card. They are not a photographic portrayal but an impression, mood, or can just be a ray of sunshine. When I show one of me pieces, I don't describe the scene or the object portrayed, I recall the conversations that were going on around me, where I was, who was with me and the emotions that I was experiencing at that moment.
