It's not just another dating show. After a nationwide search, Oprah Winfrey chose Kingsland, Georgia, to be transformed into Lovetown, USA, and challenged its residents to "be the love" for 30 days. Now, you can be part of this first-of-its-kind social experiment by hosting a weekly viewing party.

Oprah's Love Sandwich

FOOD
Let love inspire you in the kitchen. Serve Oprah's signature sandwich—a gooey creation she only makes for the people she really cares about—or re-create another dish from Oprah's recipe box. If you're hosting friends and neighbors, encourage them to bring a favorite family recipe—along with enough recipe cards to pass around.

Cocktails

DRINKS
Whether you're hosting an intimate party for two or inviting the entire neighborhood, we have you covered. From romantic cocktails and kid-friendly punches to a peach margarita that would make Georgia—home of Lovetown, USA—proud, these drink recipes are sure to please any palate.

Oprah's Lovetown DÉCOR AND MORE
