When the holiday season rolls around that means it is time to celebrate—big! Check out these top-of-industry businesses for your next holiday soiree.


Atlanta’s Hottest New Venue
As Atlanta’s newest and most sought after venue, The Fairmont has managed to turn a Westside industrial warehouse into a polished, modernistic space ready to be transformed by your vision. Boasting 19,000 square feet, The Fairmont is equipped with a built-in bar, whitewashed exposed-brick walls, glossy concrete floors and plenty of natural light seeping in through clerestory windows. With a sprawling floor plan that can handle up to 2,500 guests for a cocktail-style reception, this trendy locale is all set to host your next event. 1429 Fairmont Ave. NW

Catering with Ease
The best way to cater an event? Treat it like a restaurant. That’s the philosophy of Fifth Group Restaurants, and it’s been a successful one now for 25 years, including for Bold Catering & Design, Fifth Group’s award-winning events arm. Top notch restaurant-style catering—whether for a seated dinner for 12 or a corporate event for 1,200—combined with breathtaking, exciting design ensures that Bold Catering & Design, which is celebrating 25 years, will continue on for the next 25.

The Freshest Florals Around
The best way to ensure that your event is striking and unique is to hire Unique Floral Expressions for its keen eye for florals and design. Dazzling arrangements are sure to leave guests speechless, while impeccably personal customer service will ensure that the event is exactly how you imagined it—possibly even better. Owner Julie Coffin and her team of talented designers can make your social event the best of the season, and make it more streamlined by offering linen rentals and working with many of the top catering outfits in town.

The Perfect Party Detail
Whether spotted at some of the biggest corporate and social events of the year or at Cardi B’s baby shower (done by Michelle Gainey, our Hottest Event Planner), balloons were the florals of 2018. Arches and cascades were particularly popular in every color of the rainbow, including metallics, from Atlanta-based companies such as Balloonacy and Mom’s Kloset. Balloons have proven themselves to be not only showstopping, but actually quite luxe when left to the professionals.
