Southern Soirées hosted a Bridal Tea Party for a Louisiana bride in April at the Southern Soirées location in Vidor. Below are just a few pictures of the menu items served!







Southern Soirées provides on-location catering for events such as engagement parties, bridal tea parties, bridal showers, wedding showers, rehearsal dinners, weddings, baby showers, and church luncheons.

Southern Soirées also hosts an event facility in the Texas town of Vidor.

Event area includes an in-ground pool, a rock waterfall, and cabana surrounded by lush foilage. The Gazebo is enclosed with air-conditioning and a Victorian Southern inspired decor. White damask chair covers, table cloths, napkins, and table decor consisting of votive candles and flowers are included in the location's rental fee.

Southern Soirées Catering...How It All Began

Southern Soirées Catering is based in a small, Southern town and owned by Penny Sims. Her vision has built over the past thirty years as she has watched her mother create delicious French and Southern inspired meals for parties, showers, events and weddings.
From the age of six, Penny has been slicing, dicing, sautéing, blending, roasting, and baking a variety of scrumptious dishes with a little help and instruction from her mother and four older sisters.
Throughout her life, Penny's passions for entertaining and cooking for others has partnered with her entrepreneurship spirit...leading to the beginning of her southern inspired company, Southern Soirées.
