Meet the Owner

Penny Baird

My childhood was filled with weekend cookouts and holiday events where I was always surrounded by family and friends. Watching my mother plan a weekend get-together in the snap of her fingers with ease and no stress never failed to amaze me. After years of watching and learning, there was no doubt that I would continue in my mother's footsteps by hosting countless Thanksgivings, Christmases, and eventually help put together my daughter's wedding.


Married to my high school sweetheart, being a mother of two and grandmother to one, my life is blessed.  It is my greatest wish to extend my blessings to you.

The name Blessed Magnolia comes from the love of the Magnolia tree planted in my yard in memory of my mother, my biggest inspiration in making special days a little more special.
