You’re Invited:: Upcoming Book Signings

As you all know, earlier this year I released my second book, Cocktail Italiano: The Definitive Guide to Aperitivo: Drinks, Nibbles, and Tales of the Italian Riviera. We had a wonderful time celebrating the launch last spring, and I enjoyed meeting so many of you.

Because it was so much fun, I’m doing it again! Over the next few weeks, I am making several stops throughout Atlanta (and beyond!) to sign copies of my book, and I’d love for you to meet me there. With the gift giving season just around the corner, now is a great time to grab a few books and cross some names off of your list.

First, on November 9, I’m participating in the Elegant Elf Marketplace.  I’ll be joined by an amazing cast of fellow authors, all of whom I greatly admire. This one is sure to be a great time!

Then later this month, I’m joining my friends at Hudson Grace for a Cocktail Italiano cocktail party. Hudson Grace is a fantastic store for scooping up props or finding gifts for everyone on your list.

December kicks-off with a book signing at one of my absolutely favorite stores, Paris Market in Savannah. You may remember that I’ve hosted several fun events at Paris Market in the past. The store is a dream, and I’m thrilled head back to Savannah to visit. Finally, on December 6th, I’ll be at Ballard Designs for a delightful evening with all of you at one of my favorite Atlanta interior institutions.

Here’s a quick recap, or visit my calendar for even more specifics:

  • Friday, November 9, 10 AM – 12 PM – Elegant Elf, Atlanta
  • Thursday, November 15, 5 – 7 PM, – Hudson Grace, Atlanta
  • Sunday, December 2, time TBD – Paris Market, Savannah
  • Tuesday, December 6, time TBD – Ballard Designs, Atlanta

Find the details for several of the events below. I hope to see you there!

Bridal Season + west elm Bridal Launch


Since I am working with west elm on their bridal registry launch this week, I wanted to give you some ideas of things I am loving right now. If I were getting married today what would I register for? west elm has a great selection of what I call special basics. In my book Picture Perfect Parties, I outline a “Party Pantry”. These essentials are an arsenal of basics everyone needs to entertain with ease.

* I will be giving a presentation Sunday June 22nd at west elm Atlantic Station on what exactly these essentials should be.


Here are some of the items from west elm I think are must haves on your bridal registry list.


The Krosno Glassware Set


Love these napkins: The Blanket Stitch Napkin Set


Organic Shaped Dinnerware, a fantastic basic everyday dish + they work well for dinner parties as well.


Something dressier: The Organic Shaped Dinnerware with a gold rim, also available with a silver rim.

Stop by Sunday and check out my complete list. Chat with me about your wedding ideas and I will help you register for your “party pantry” essentials from west elm!
