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

Like A Kid In A Swoozie Store!

Written by Patti on 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!

I also had the pleasure of meeting my co-Swoozie Party Expert, Kat, who writes Buckhead Betty on a Budget. Love it! And her. She is way adorable.

Look! It's the Buckhead Bettie line for our Buckhead Betty on a Budget!

Wendy from Atlanta Events joined us as well. Wendy is one of the most delightful people I know, always upbeat, always happy.

And, I cannot forget my fab friends that came out to help celebrate. Besties Lisa, John and Danny were there and wonderful Lauren and Randall came out for a glass of bubbly and just in time for the confetti drop. So much more fun when someone else is cleaning up. Eric swooped in at the end of the evening and whisked me away to a romantic pasta dinner, where I filled him in on the details.

Kat, Lisa and Me, loving Swoozie's!

Amy, Marketing Director for this particular Swoozie’s, and I are whipping up something fantastic for you all in the future, so stay tuned.

In the meantime – more photos!

Lisa and me - love this bowl!

Princess Time for Wendy and me!

Lovely Lauren and me.

Ashley and me. Check out the confetti in my hair. Fun!

Me, with my darling besties, Danny and John.

Thanks to everyone that joined us. And many thanks to Swoozie’s!

xoxo, Patti
