Forget the mall, Internet orders, and home channel bargains when it comes to shopping for home décor items. Take a shopper’s tip from the publishers of Southern Living magazine. Shop until you drop into a comfortable chair and view Southern Living’s exclusive home decor items displayed in front of you, a place where you can see, touch, and smell the home accessories before you buy.

“Home is where the heart is . . . and also the party!” welcomed hostess Kay Muri as she ushered each guest into her home. “We have food, beverages, and we have Gwen!”

Gwen Tillisch is a décor consultant for Southern Living At Home, a subsidiary of Time Warner. Her mission is to create a comfort of hospitality to help clients achieve the look created by the pages of the popular magazine. The Southern Living At Home company was founded in January 2001 because of the many inquiries people had written. Since then, it has become the fastest growing party plan company in the history of direct sales.

It’s a celebration of southern style, straight off the pages of Southern Living . In 2003, consultants held 248,000 parties and not all of them in the south, according to Tillisch.
