Behind the Scenes at Amy Atlas – Holiday Party in Colin Cowie’s Home

We were at a very special holiday party last night.  Colin Cowie hosted an intimate holiday party at his home in New York City for The B-List and a couple of other close friends.  You can only imagine what a joy it was to see the ultimate entertainer in action.  I’ve known Colin for a couple of years, but I have to tell you, seeing him in his own environment was quite amazing.  He is extremely gracious, charming and fun.  Of course, the decor details were elegant and chic. Colin served delicious food and killer cocktails from his favorite master mixologist Yusef Austin of Elite Elixirs.  He also had music from his friend DJ  Donna D’Cruz.  One of the coolest things was getting a peek into Colin’s personal style and decor in his home.  Colin has innovative art throughout his apartment including a work of art created completely out of eye shadow compacts {yes, you can touch it and re-apply if you dare!} and a wall of inspiration boards filled with swatches in his kitchen.  I was humbled to see two of my dessert tables in the inspiration boards that were housed on his kitchen wall!  In addition to lots of food and drink, Colin talked about lots of exciting things he has in store for 2011 {stay tuned!}  Check out Colin’s newsletter and follow him for upcoming news.  Okay, now for a peek….

What’s a party without dessert?  Delicious toffee and whoopie pies…
