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.

Good Morning Darlings!

You have to see what they can do!

Good Morning Darlings!

Happy Valentine’s Day to all my sweeties out there! Eric and I are sleeping in, making breakfast together, will watch a dozen movies and then make pizza dough. We never go out on Valentine’s Day. Why go out when you can get all cuddly inside? It’s cold out there!

But I bet you are all ready with a great day for your loved one, right?

Oops, did you forget to buy a gift?

I do love Valentine’s Day. And night. And luxury.

And old classic movies.

How can I tie them all together?
