The Ritz-Carlton Atlanta
On Friday during the Romance Writers of America National Conference, Harlequin threw the annual party for authors. They usually hold it at the Ritz-Carlton in whatever city we're in. It's always a lavish, amazing event. And SO MUCH FUN!
Of course, this year I embarrassed myself taking photos of the flowers and food for all of you. The pastry chefs probably thought I was some sort of bumpkin, snapping shots of the gorgeous desserts! (Goodness, the sacrifices I make for my buds at the Cafe!)

And then the desserts...
The servers were there to help by spreading our choice of icing on the different kinds of cupcakes. Once we had the icing, we could choose toppings...
And then there were the gorgeous displays...
Those are fried cheese cake balls on the right!
And above, one of my favorites. A graham type cake with marshmallow cream and chocolate on top. A glamorous s'more!
More beautiful displays of tarts and layered desserts.
And my very favorite...
The best I could tell, it was a meringue type cookie with jam inside. And those little plastic vials? You squeezed them to add more flavoring liquid. Raspberry or lemon. I admit, I had 3 of the raspberry ones!
They were small. :) (That's my story, and sticking to it.)
AMAZING desserts. Amazing night.
Oh, and here I am in a photo with my beautiful senior editor, Melissa Endlich. It's fun to enjoy relaxed time with our editors!
I hope y'all enjoyed some time at the Ritz!
