If you live at The Palazzo Communities in LA, “Party at my place!” just took on a whole new meaning. That’s because one of the perks of living at this large apartment building includes free resident events put together by the talented Adrienne LaRocque. As a resident, on any given day you could be invited to a weekend donut and bagel breakfast or a BBQ-themed cocktail hour or poolside movie night featuring Jaws. You only have to walk a few steps from your front door to enjoy an amazing party and mingle with your neighbors. Sounds fun! Can we come?
Last week, we were invited to join the residents of The Palazzo for a Valentine’s Day “Enchanted Garden” fondue party. Adrienne specializes in “parties with personality” and this one couldn’t be described as anything less. There was a huge chocolate fountain with an abundant spread of delicious goodies for dipping that included fresh strawberries and pineapple, creme-filled eclairs, marshmallows, pretzel sticks, Oreos, rice krispy squares, brownies, and more. In addition to the sweet treats, residents and their guests enjoyed a selection of cheese and wine while being serenaded by a harp player strumming tunes like Frank Sinatra’s “The Way You Look Tonight”. There was even a special place just for kids where they could read Valentine’s Day-themed books and grab a cute little goody bag. Needless to say, we totally wanted to move-in to The Palazzo after this soiree.
FUN FACT: This is the building where Lauren & Heidi from The Hills lived when they were roomies.
