Streater Meehan, The RSVP Shoppe

Tell us a little about yourself.

I grew up in Murrells Inlet and graduated from Waccamaw High School. My family’s claim to fame is that my grandmother was the first female dentist in South Carolina!

I moved to Boston for college, and after graduation worked for the Kraft family who own the New England Patriots. They are such a nice and generous family; I was treated very well and was amazed by their incredible philanthropy. It was an exciting job – Tom Brady was in the office almost every day, and I also met quite a few celebrities, including Donald Trump, Jon Bon Jovi and Steven Tyler! Steven Tyler was always very “blinged” out. He really looks like the rock star he is!

Even though I loved my work, I eventually missed home and decided to move back. I had been taking classes in letterpress and design, so when I returned to the area, I worked for a year and then opened The RSVP Shoppe. My exciting news is that I just bought a home in Mt. Gilead.

What do you do for Thanksgiving?

I love Thanksgiving; it’s my favorite holiday – it’s all about friends and family. Every year, my friends and I throw a “Friendsgiving” a few days before Thanksgiving. We get together and have an oyster roast – it’s so much fun.

On Thanksgiving, my mom cooks for our family and everyone is invited. We always have people over who don’t have family here and need a place to spend the holiday.

Which family member cooks your favorite dish? What is it?

My mom makes the most wonderful creamed corn. It’s my great-grandmother’s recipe. She takes fresh corn and cuts part of the kernel off, then fries it. Then, the cobs are scraped and added to the mix. It’s delicious.

What are you grateful for right now?

My health, happiness, friends and my business are all blessings.

Tell us a little about The RSVP Shoppe.

For the holidays, we have lots of vinyl monogrammed gifts that are reasonably priced and can be ordered a day or two in advance such as trays, jewelry dishes, plates, platters and more.
