There were so many memorable soirées in Atlanta in 2011, that we had to divide up the retrospective into two parts. Here’s part one of our recap—from Swan Ball, Garden of Eden and the NBAF Gala…to “The Selby In Your Place” (Todd Selby at Jackson Fine Art to be exact).
Click the slide show below for a recap of Swan Ball at the Swan House at Atlanta History Center; the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra Show House; a Great Gatsby-themed lawn party for Ralph Lauren at the Rollins estate (a LuxeCrush exclusive); the High Museum’s POP after party for the Picasso to Warhol exhibit hosted by media sponsor LuxeCrush; Atlanta Opera Ball, a cocktail for designer Michelle Smith of the Milly label at Neiman Marcus; The Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Luncheon; the Atlanta Ballet Ball; NBAF’s Silver Screen Gala; A Tony Evening with Alan Cumming for Alliance Theatre; Veneralia Gala at Michael C. Carlos Museum; fashion photographer Todd Selby at Jackson Fine Art; the inaugural Atlanta Food & Wine Festival; High Wine Auction Winemakers’ Dinners; and the grand re-opening of MoDA (Museum of Design Atlanta) in its swanky new Midtown space with an inaugural exhibit of red-hot Italian motorcycles.
Stay tuned for part two of our party recap, and fasten your seatbelts, because the 2012 social season is already off to a high-octane start.
