Glam Holiday Progressive Dinner
Glam Holiday Progressive Dinner Party Details:
This is what Michelle shared about the party- “The holidays are the perfect opportunity to plan a festive evening to get dressed up and enjoy a night on the town with friends! Hosting a Progressive Cocktail Party allows guests to enjoy each meal course in a different location, creating a fun spin on a typical dinner party. We recently hosted an event at American Cut in Atlanta, and the venue couldn’t have been more perfect. We started with appetizers and champagne downstairs, moved upstairs for dinner and wine, and ended at their rooftop Regent Cocktail Club with a mixology lesson and desserts. It was such a memorable night and sure to inspire others as they plan their holiday gatherings.
Setting The Tone:
Every good party starts with the invitation. We worked with Papered Wonders to design a suite that was modern, chic, and glamorous. It definitely built the excitement for our guests to receive these invitations.
Getting dressed up is half the fun of a holiday party! I’m a big fan of designer Abbey Glass and we were all able to wear pieces from her Fall/Winter collection. Abbey strives to design clothing that takes a fresh spin on classic silhouettes with tailored pieces that flatter all shapes and sizes of women.
Celebrity makeup artist Erica Bogart shared her favorite winter beauty looks and created a flawless look for all of our guests. Having professional makeup is a little luxury that is well worth it to feel amazing for a night on the town.
In addition to planning a wonderful menu, it’s also important to think about how your guests will interact as they arrive. Each of our guests received a welcome note and a luxury leather tassel charm gift from Mel Boteri. Then we got the party started by playing a Wine Game. Everyone drew a stick with a question that prompted us to share our favorite personal stories about wine to get the conversation flowing.
I love creating tables that are warm and inviting. I set the table with a luxe turquoise velvet linen, gold chargers, black metallic napkins, and die cut turquoise menu cards. Gorgeous flowers with lots of texture from Flowers by Holland finished the table design.
A modern steakhouse, American Cut blends an impressive interior design with a bold menu to create an impressive experience. We enjoyed the OG 1924 Caesar Salad that is prepared tableside. And of course the steak was exquisite!
After a fabulous meal, we headed upstairs for cocktails and dessert. Located on the 3rd level of American Cut, The Regent Cocktail Club is an indoor/outdoor rooftop cocktail bar with striking views of the Atlanta skyline. They feature a team of talented bartenders with a rotating cocktail menu paired with live music. We enjoyed a quick lesson in how to make our signature cocktail the French 75 before heading outside for cupcakes.
Getting together with friends, it’s always nice to discuss our future plans, hopes, and dreams. Especially as we are looking at what we want for ourselves in the new year. To end the party we wrote our dreams down on Wish Papers. Then we rolled up the paper and lit them on a plate. According to the tradition, magically, the paper rises high to the sky, and as it floats back down – you catch it! Your wish has been released. Good fortune!
