Luncheon with Colin Cowie

Luncheon with Colin Cowie.
First, I would like to say that this man is the James Bond of Party Planning! From his dashing good looks and charm, right down to the world travel and cocktails, this man is oozing 007! Throw in tablescapes and I was a doe eyed girl!! Hold on til the end of the'll see a picture of me with that very look on my face.....
Secondly, picture quality is low due to low lighting, but you'll get the gist.

I think this man has been in front of a camera a time or two....whatta ya think?

The next three pictures are some of the centerpieces done by the Nell Hill staff designers-beautiful!

The atmosphere was high energy, fast paced music, lights, and mingling....not me though, I'm taking pictures! Some one actually asked me if I was a photographer for the lens isn't THAT big! :)

The 70 tables were set...10 people per table...and the event was sold out The menu was very nice, I cleaned my plate!Pistachio Cheesecake for dessert
Colin showing interiors, hotels, tablescapes and party planning, and his own personal is hard to photograph the screen...

OK, now I must tell you just how incredibly nervous I was...hence the look on my face, and don't ask me what was going on with my hair! * H e l l o * Earth to Michelle, your limbs do move, brush that hair out of your face before they take the picture..................

oops too late!

Along with Celebrity nervousness, I was experiencing anxiety watching a total stranger hold my camera...I don't care if you're a Bond girl or not drop my camera!

Thanks for visiting! This was a great experience! I am so lucky to be able to go to such an event!

Come by again soon, I took even more pictures inside Nell Hill's...I hope to post them soon!


  1. This looks like so much fun! I would be in total heaven, from the decorations to the food...and the dashing speaker. You are so lucky!!

  2. You did great- with your photos and the photo of you.

    I would have been in a daze.

    I want to go to Nell Hills!


  3. Thanks for sharing this terrific event with us! I feel like I was there...well maybe not quite (I'm still hungry, looking at those food pics!)but you did a great job capturing what it must have felt like. What a special treat for you to be able to attend. I would love that although I wouldn't have the nerve to have my pic taken with Colin - good for you! (Who cares if your hair was in your eyes - it is a terrific memory to have captured!) Did you get some new ideas for your work and/or the holidays? Looking forward to more pics of Nell Hill's!


  4. This looks like a terrific event. The centerpieces alone were worth the price of admission. BTW, I like the hair, tousled is good.

  5. It looks fantastic! And the hair? You were rocking it!

  6. Oh, what an amazing event! I know this had to have been a once in a lifetime fun thing, and look at those centerpieces!

    Love that pic of the two of you, too!
