The Party Girls!

I just received the photos the photographer took at our event in NYC with the East Coast Party girls and the amazing Amy Atlas.  We appreciated all of the details which made the get together even more special. The chic stationery was provided by Two Pooch Paperie.

What a night!

Last night, I attended a get together of East Coast Party Planners in NYC. It's a group I belong to through the Dreamers into Doers on Martha Stewart's site.
Two of the members Dawn of Bee's Knees Parties, and Khaliah of The Party Muse did an amazing job putting it all together.  We met at Alices Tea Cup off Lexington Ave ~ such a cute place and great tea!!

It was so great to meet the ladies in the group and the biggest highlight was an appearance by Amy Atlas - famous party stylist and original dessert table designer.
We were so surprised!

She came with her assistant and they sat down with us sharing lots of great business advice. Amy even had the time to check out each of our websites.  They were so sweet and genuine. What a great night!

So glad I was able to be a part of it all and meet all of the talented ladies in attendance! I will introduce them and their creative businesses when I get a hold of a group photo.

Thanks again Dawn and Khaliah!
