Edward Crouse and Marie Stitt are no strangers to entertaining. As owners of the popular European-inspired cafe Babas on Cannon in Charleston - which pairs old world charm with Southern hospitality - the couple live, eat and breathe hospitality at work and at home. Back in May, the pair took over Mountain Valley's Instagram for cocktails and a conversation about how they like to entertain guests, even when celebrating might look a little different.
