The Atlantan

the atlantan magazine turns 5 this year, and that is pretty cool.

in honor of this big day, the atlantan hosted a killer anniversary bash at 200 peachtree on april 19th. what a cool venue! in the heart of downtown, 200 peachtree occupies the old macy’s building. the grand atrium (formerly the main floor/grand entrance of macy’s) is home to a handful of BEAUTIFUL, 14-foot original chandeliers. check out the history of the chandeliers!

The teardrop chandeliers that are a trademark of the former downtown Macy’s building once hung in the chain’s flagship Herald Square store in New York. They were removed during World War II to conserve energy. After the war the chandeliers reappeared in the downtown Atlanta Davison’s, which became Macy’s in 1985.

the theme of the party was mad men/late 50’s. there were plenty of 50’s-inspired signature dishes…swedish meat balls, deviled eggs, meat loaf sliders, crispy green bean casserole…just to name a few. all catering was done by a legendary event, and it was DELICIOUS! the snazzy cocktail list was lots of fun as well!

james blunt and christina perri provided the entertainment for the night. each of them have their own getstuckinyourheadwhetheryoulikeitornot kind of songs. you know which ones i’m talking about. while we didn’t catch all of the performances, what we heard sounded great!

and of course, the majestic photobooth co. provided the photobooth fun! everyone had a blast in the photobooth, and our sweet lula* captered some great photos!
