Like A Kid In A Swoozie Store!

Thursday, March 3rd, 2011

Good Morning Darlings!

Last night I helped Swoozie’s celebrate their 10th birthday and it was so much fun. Their Chastain Square store is huge and filled with anything you could ever need for a party.
Champagne, Confetti and Cookies!

We’re celebrating in here! Close the door behind you…

My One Exception

Thursday, March 18th, 2010

Good Morning, Darlings!

As I stated in the beginning of March, there were no dinner parties to be hosted in my home this month. But, alas, rules are meant to be broken. The one person I would allow as the exception came to dinner last night. And it was so worth breaking the rules!

Last night our very special guest of honor was Clint’s enchanting mother, Sylvia. We had not seen each other in seven years and she was in town for a visit. There was no way my little moratorium was going to keep me from entertaining one of my most favorite people. And so I set about to show her a very good time.

On the menu was:

Caprese Salad
Pappardelle with Boar Ragu
Sauteed Broccoli Rabe
Fresh Garlic Bread
Lemon Tart

Mmmm, Meatballs, Y'all!

Good Morning, Darlings!

Sunday was a very lazy day for E and me. We just stayed home, baked cookies, played games, made pizza dough and then baked a pizza.

Golden Globes With The Gang

Thursday, January 21st, 2010

Good Morning, Darlings!

I’ve shared Sugar Coma with you and the macaron class on Sunday.¬† My thought was, heck, the house is clean – lets give a Golden Globes party for our besties after all the guests from¬† the macaron class go home. Made sense to me. And we had missed giving our New Year’s Day pajama party because we were both ill…so lets make it a Golden Globes Pajama Party! Whoo Whee!
