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

Party at the Big House

Written by Patti on January 5th, 2011

Good Morning Darlings!

Before the new year we went to the annual holiday party given by Calvin and Steve at their fabulous loft. It is always a wonderful time and we always meet the most fun people. This year’s guests included a designer for Kate Spade from New York and a former news anchor. Fun!

This past year the loft played host to the cast of The Vampire Diaries, where they filmed for a few weeks.

Steve cooked and baked for an entire day before the party. Everything was super delicious and beautiful.

A gorgeous table

But the marvelous people are what made the party.

At 9 pm, everyone danced to one Patti LaBelle song. It was a hoot.

It was a swell night. Thanks so much to Calvin and Steve – it is always a blast with you all!
