We met as eager young design students on a crisp fall day. It didn’t take long to learn of our shared dreams to one day emerge from behind our computer screens, using our creativity and sense of humor to entertain our friends, and eventually, the world. Our friendship was immediate, our upbringings strikingly familiar. Raised with strong values and ingrained with the spirit of true southern hospitality, we dreamed of dinner parties with extravagantly displayed desserts, birthday parties with customized themes, and elaborate potluck dinners where delicious family recipes paired perfectly with witty repartee.
Three years, two degrees and two corporate jobs later we found ourselves sharing a bottle of Pinot (or two) and discovered another similarity – a deep love for the song The Weight by The Band. As soon as we finished belting out “won’t you stay an’ keep Anna Lee company?” at the top of our lungs, our partnership was sealed, and our company had a name.
To us, it evokes a simpler time. A time when hospitality flourished, company was cherished, and nothing was more important than the enjoyment of your guests.
Welcome to Anna Lee Co. We are so pleased to meet you!
Stay awhile, won’t you?
