Dream Weekend

This weekend I had the most fabulous time on a girls trip to Atlanta to celebrate a dear friend's birthday. The wonderful company and delicious food (I highly recommend Bacchanalia if you find yourself in Atlanta) would have made this weekend perfect; but the goodness did not end there. The icing on the cake was staying at the St. Regis thanks to the birthday girl. GORGEOUS. Let me just tell you, we felt like fancy people this weekend and I liked it. The St. Regis is truly a spectacular hotel. The only negative about staying in this lap of luxury was the reminder that I missed the showhouse held there a while back. So I thought since I am iced in today I thought it would be the perfect time to revisit it...Yep, still kicking myself for missing that one. Oh well, at least we were able to pretend to call the St. Regis home this weekend.

Hi Marianne! I live in Atlanta and I think that the St. Regis is by far one of the most beautiful hotels here. The decor is fabulous! I'm glad you got to experience the insanely delicious food at Bacchanalia! It's one of my favorites, too.

A weekend with the girls sounds fun! And to top it off at the St. Regis makes it extra special! Loving the images of the spaces.

There is nothing better than a wonderful girls weekend. So glad you got some time for what I am sure included tons of laughter, reminiscing, and shopping perhaps? xo

Indulgence is wonderful and so deserved! My friend booked us at the St. Regis for Market, what a treat!

And Bacchanalia, truly devine! Star Provisions is my coffee haunt prior to perusing the Silk Trading Co. across the street :) I love Atlanta!

Enjoy the snow...I'm snowed in today as well :)

Great post Marianne! I wish we were still snowed in there. Seeing pictures of the showhouse makes me so sad we didn't try to get in to see it. We'll just have to try next time!

Oh, how fun! Never been to the St. Regis, but my husband and I love Bacchanalia (and everything in that Howell Mill Road area). Aren't girls trips great?

And, by the way, I nominated you for a Stylish Blogger Award. Stop by my blog and check out what to do. It's just a little mid-winter fun.

Thanks for sharing, Marianne!

Sounds like the absolutely perfect weekend with friends, and the images of the showhouse! It is gorgeous, not overdone like many, love the pop of bright kelly green in the bedroom.
