Happy Birthday, 'Atlantan!'

One of Atlanta’s premier magazines, The Atlantan, turned 5 this week! To celebrate, they threw a fabulous party at a posh venue with creative cocktails, delectable bites, and talented musicians. What else would you expect from the leader in modern luxury?

Fans and readers of the magazine partied in the grand ballroom of 200 Peachtree—a gorgeous new venue downtown Atlanta. After walking the red carpet, my friend and I grabbed the night’s signature Fuze cocktails and started to make our rounds. 

We strolled by models wearing beautiful gowns from Saks Fifth Avenue and grabbed some polenta, cocktail shrimp, and sliders catered by A Legendary Event. Upstairs, we spotted local celebrities playing casino games (to benefit Atlanta Women’s Foundation) while the DJ was spinning dance-worthy tunes. 

About halfway through the party, Atlanta-based Christina Perri and British-born James Blunt took the stage—both performances were a huge crowd pleaser. 

And of course, my friend and I couldn’t walk away without snapping a few silly pictures in the photo booth.
