No word on if there will be balloons, but we can hope.

Pitched as a "full service entertainment and event services" business, Jamie Leigh Wildridge and The Green Room are about to open at Habersham Marketplace.

The Green Room will be home to receptions, birthdays, bridal showers, anniversaries and special events, including afternoon tea.

A grand opening celebration and ribbon cutting with the Beaufort Regional Chamber of Commerce, is slated for Friday, September 2, at 5:30 p.m. during the Marketplace's First Fridays event.

There will also be a drawing for an entertainment package worth more than $500.

Here is more about the business from a press release:

The Green Room, named for an area where entertainers gather before performing, aims to bring ambiance, music and food harmoniously together for all of its events. Weather permitting, The Green Room will utilize its Zen Garden, located just outside the shop front, as part of its event space.

"Combining my expertise of event planning and entertainment in conjunction with my experience in catering is a dream come true" says Wildridge. "The Green Room will also work to compliment The Habersham Marketplace's lush landscaping and eco-friendly reputation."

Wildridge, a four-year Beaufort area resident, is also owner of Drysdale Entertainment – a company that provides musical talent throughout the Southeast. She has spent the last 15 years coordinating events and providing entertainment for weddings, concerts and special events. Wildridge has also served as a Catering Director for a resort in Colorado.
