Earlier this month, I celebrated International Women’s Day at The Capital Grille Buckhead.  Being a woman is tough.  We cook, clean, work, bear children, raise children, and handle so many of life’s tasks with style and grace.  With all of that being said, I wanted to host a dinner party that highlighted and celebrated all that we do as women.  Cheers to us!

Speaking of women and tasks, I created all of the fabulous florals to use as tablescapes for the dinner.  I had the best time and was quite impressed with my creations.  View the video recap here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bvNRxjjF-x0

When I initially decided to launch my dinner series, I felt that it was important to partner with one of my favorite places to dine, which is a classic Atlanta steakhouse:  The Capital Grille. 

When I initially kicked off my dinner series, it was imperative that I host it at this particular steakhouse because, quite honestly, I love The Capital Grille!  The service, ambiance, and food are really superb.  I am not only a huge fan, but I am a wine locker holder.

I was thrilled to partner with The Capital Grille and Chambord & Woodford Reserve for this event.  Chambord & Woodford Reserve are extremely classic brands that are perfect all year round. We welcomed everyone with a welcome cocktail, which was the Chambord Royale.  This cocktail was refreshing and had just the right combination of sweetness and bubbles.  All of the ladies totally loved the drink!
