Happy Independence Day!

Wednesday, July 3rd, 2013

Good Morning Darlings!

Here in Atlanta we are going to see torrential rain for July 4th. Will that stop the party?

Heck no!! We will be at our dear friend, Melanie’s house. It is going to be a HAPPENING. I can’t wait!

I am making double bacon potato salad. If some bacon is good, more is better, right?

What are you up to? I am crushing on these fun photos:

Cupcakes, icing, and well, more cupcakes!

Apparently, I’m on an icing kick.

I’m not even sure what these are, but I need them in my life.

And I HAVE TO HAVE everything on this sweet website:

Love love love

I wish you and your loved ones a fabulous and safe July 4th. Leave a comment and let me know what you are up to!!

xoxo, Patti

Thanksgiving Appetizers – Sausage Balls

Wednesday, November 21st, 2012

Good Morning Darlings!

When I am asked to bring an appetizer to a party, sausage balls are my go-to recipe. It is ridiculously easy and they taste so good.

A couple of weekends ago, I had 3 parties to go to, so I whipped up 3 different versions of the basic recipe.

Pop in and get in the kitchen with me!

Rantings of A Serial Party Hostess

Tuesday, November 6th, 2012

Good Morning Darlings!

My business partner, Carrie and I just threw our first annual Haunted Hollywood party for Atlanta Movie Tours. In this installment, I will share photos and talk about the evening.

As we are essentially in holiday party mode as of NOW (really, Target, couldn’t you wait to put out those Christmas decorations?), I am going to let you know my true feelings about party giving, and those guests…..

This is something that is rarely seen (or read) here. I try to be sweet and dear, but sometimes a girl just has to rant.

Come on in.

All I Hear Are Cricuts

Tuesday, October 30th, 2012

Good Morning Darlings!

No, I haven’t stopped using my spell check. The cricuts I’m talking about are not the creepy crawly kind, but those swanky little machines that allow you to blow everyone away with your creativity!

You have to see what they can do!
