Before returning to Nashville next month for her "Whiskey in a Teacup" book tour, Reese Witherspoon spent the weekend visiting local shops and going to places like Bridgestone Arena for the Keith Urban concert Friday night. However, before making a stop at her own store, Draper James, the Green Hills-native and Harpeth Hall graduate shared photos from Belle Meade restaurant and catering company Something Special.

Witherspoon will be back in town next month for the second-to-last stop on her book tour for "Whiskey in a Teacup: What Growing Up in the South Taught Me About Life, Love, and Baking Biscuits." During the event, in partnership with Parnassus Books, the actress plans to share personal stories, as well as how she entertains, decorates her home and spends the holidays. You can learn more about the release here, out Sept. 18.

“My grandmother Dorothea always said that it was a combination of beauty and strength that made Southern women ‘whiskey in a teacup,’" Witherspoon said in a release about the tour. "We may be delicate and ornamental on the outside, but we’re strong and fiery on the inside. I’m so excited to travel around the country and meet more strong women and share our stories.”
