Anatomy of a Dinner Party: a day in the life of a hospitalityaholic

Reliving The Magic

Written by Patti on November 11th, 2010

Good Morning Darlings!

Last night was a dinner for 12 sponsored by POM Wonderful but given by me at our house. With a bundle of courses.

This morning I am staring at a kitchen full of dirty dishes.

Thus, my very belated Halloween post. And since a picture says a thousand words, here are several thousand words for you.

My costume was the Tooth Fairy, with my precious husband crafting my fleece tooth crown all himself. He is incredible. He went as a Juggalo. Google it for fun.

Our party hosts were the always charming Steve and Carrie Burns at their killer loft in Castleberry, overlooking the Georgia Dome. I especially loved the cockroach cupcakes. Brilliant.

Eric is the best at everything. Loved my softie crown.

All crowned up and painted up, we were joined by our besties Crystal & Teague, dressed as “Crystal Meth” Roller Girl and Wolverine. Why I do not have a photo of Crystal is beyond me. She was so cute.

And Teague was born to be Wolverine.

But first, we took some photos of the amazingly costumed Tracy and Carrie, who were off to their own festivities for the night.

Tracy and Carrie aka Beyonce and Lady Gaga.

We entered the loft to a scary welcome.

Anybody need a hand?

Where we were met by our beautiful geisha hostess, Carrie.

All dressed up and ready to party

and her beast of a husband, Steve.

Beauty and the Beast

Take a look at all these fun snapshots of the night.

With my good fairy friends, Calvin and Steve. These costumes had motors in them. Crazy!

The Tooth Fairy Loves Her Juggalo

Spooky, creepy cockroach cupcakes.

Cake Pops!

Always something cooking at Carrie's place.

Stephanie was the most adorable flamingo!

Full shot of that fabulous flamingo costume.

Oh, sparkly!

Incredible view from the rooftop deck

The birdman was a crowd favorite.

Teague as Woverine. Drinking a beer is tricky when you have claws like that.

It's Mr. Clean!

The Tooth Fairy is not afraid of the Big Bad Wolf. Ok, maybe a little.

Nora, owner of The Wine Shoe, came dressed as a Unicork. I thought that was pretty funny.

Urban Dracula

Hey! It's Master Pea aka my buddy Stefan.

Even Geoff from the Craig Ferguson Show was there. Sexxxxy!

We had a grand time. And I haven’t even told you about the swanky photo booth that was set up. Click and pose, pose, pose! This was a blast. Carrie and Steven covered every space in their home in Halloween. It was extreme. Extremely FUN!

Hope your Halloween was as swell.

xoxo, Patti
