Garden party attire, lawn croquet, masses of roses in oversize urns and summery cocktails were the order of the day when Danielle Rollins hosted a spring patron party with her CHOA (Children’s Hospital of Atlanta) co-hosts Liz Lazarus and Ginny Brewer. Guests wandered through Rollins’ lush gardens and manicured terraces, while professional photographers from New York snapped images for inclusion in Rollins’ upcoming book on entertaining for Rizzoli. Models decked out in refined Ralph Lauren Collection and Ralph Lauren Black Label looks strolled the grounds like cowgirl-meets-Victorian-lady-of-the-manor lovelies. Even the gentlemen guest donned their best duds in looks that ranged from seersucker and preppy--to Ralph Lauren polished. A few revelers even tried their hand at croquet. Among the crowd:  several of this year’s Women of Style and Substance honorees, including Stephanie Blank, Lila Hertz, Elizabeth Klump, Lovette Russell and Meg Arnold. Also spotted in the crowd:  Kimball Hastings the director of celebrity for Polo Ralph Lauren-NYC, Michele New of Saks Fifth Avenue, Dan and Sandra Baldwin, Ashley Dabbiere, Beth Ault, Ruthie Rollins, Drew Brown, Judy Mauldin, Suzanne Kasler, Beth Webb, Charles Brewer
