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

Birthday Monday!

Written by Patti on February 20th, 2012

Good Morning Darlings!

It’s my birthday today! Yay! Last night we gathered a few friends and I got my birthday wish.

A Soul Train Line Dance.

OHMYGOLLY – It was so much fun. Bestie John cooked up a storm and everyone showed up in their very best outfits from 1978.

Did I get that Soul Train Line Dance I was hoping for?

You betcha. And was it fun?


Will I show you incriminating photos of my friends getting down and getting funky?


I made a promise. But I have some fun photos for myself.

John came over and made our house into a Boogie Wonderland. Crystal and Teague supplied the disco ball and we were ready to get down!

I loved the colors John chose for the table.

It's a bit hard to tell, but the cupcakes were topped with the prettiest silver sprinkles.

Yummy short bread with the chicken liver pate peeking from behind.

John's now famous savory pesto cheesecake.

Chef John and his yummy empanadas.

Clint and Charlie.

The Atlanta Movie Tours Team - Carrie, Tony and me.

Crystal, Tony and me.

Denise, aka Deetay, aka Pat Benatar.

The disco ball - it wouldn't be Soul Train without it.

Time to blow out the candles!

Yay! Happy Birthday to me!

Eric even made a Soul Train Scramble Board for me. LOVE!

Gifts! With Rick and Denise.

Justin, Jay, Tiffany and me.

Ashley & Tiffany really know me. They brought me a brain shaped jello mold and gingerdead men cookie cutters. Love love love.

Nope, I am not going to post those line dance pictures. Some things are better kept private. But, I’m telling you, everyone loved that Soul Train Line Dance. Everyone.

I can’t wait to do it again.

A million thanks to all our friends who came to party. I love you so much.

John – you are amazing. The food was stupendous. I cannot thank you enough.

xoxo, Patti
