Going into the new year, we made it our mission to host more events in 2019. We didn’t want to host just any event, instead we wanted a night of encouragement and empowerment with a focus on female entrepreneurship that featured some of our favorite Atlanta-area girl bosses. Thanks to our amazing accommodations partner, The Hotel at Avalon, we were able to achieve just that and MORE!
The event started with checking into our STUNNING terrace-level suite aka our “Primp & Prep” room which featured one-of-a-kind Avalon views and direct access to The Hotel at Avalon’s pool deck where we were greeted with our own personal photographer, Colleen of XXIII Photo Studio, who hosted each of us to individual photo-shoots. Each #girlboss guest was able to “primp and prep” for their photo-shoot thanks to our beauty & styling partners: Dress Up, Chanel, & Jane Iredale.
Post photo-shoot we were hosted to bites & bubbly by Fifth Group’s South City Kitchen, located in the Hotel at Avalon’s lobby. The food and drinks were delicious and the scenery was divine! We highly recommend trying their fried green tomatoes and southern meat & cheese board- YUM! We were even able to take our drinks to-go thanks to Avalon Boulevard’s open container allowance, how cool?!
Next stop: Club Avalon Concierge …
At the center of Avalon’s boulevard, we arrived at Club Avalon Concierge Services. Here we were greeted by the most incredible and accommodating team who made us aware of all the Galentine’s Day happenings. They even had an Avalon Galentine’s Day Guide that gave a full overview and map to each activation taking place that evening. Whether you’re an Avalon resident or guest, definitley be sure to check out Club Avalon Concierge Services during your next visit.
Next stop: Jeni’s Splendid Ice cream:
I scream, you scream, we all scream for Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream! Nothing says, “Girls Night Out,” like a late-night sweet treat. With Jeni’s being just steps from the Hotel at Avalon, we couldn’t resist. Jeni’s generously gifted our guests with trio cards which allows you a 1/2 scoop of any 3 flavors you choose, so we were all in sweet-tooth Heaven! Our favorite flavor of the night was the Salted Peanut Butter with Chocolate Flecks on a Buttercrisp Waffle Cone- SO GOOD!
We took our ice cream trios to-go and headed back to our gorgeous Hotel at Avalon suite where we “girl-talked” all things female entrepreneurship including our hardships and rejections to big breaks and successes. The Hotel at Avalon truly does take you out of the city noise and downtown distractions, allowing guests to really sit back & RELAX and if you want to roam, you can venture down the Avalon Boulevard and enjoy countless places to drink, dine, and unwind just steps from your suite. 5 out of 5 starts, A++, highly recommend staying at the Hotel at Avalon whether your traveling through town or a local looking for a stay-cation, they have SO much to offer and the Autograph Collection aesthetic is #ExactlyLikeNothingElse !
We’ll conclude this write-up with a huge THANK YOU to our event partners who took part in our “Galentine’s” event + gift bags and ensured each of our guests were taken care of.
