A Recap Of An Evening At Downton Abbey In Video And Photos
If you weren’t able to attend our Evening at Downton Abbey premiere gala for the show’s final and sixth season at 200 Peachtree, you missed out on attending the biggest party of the year.
But don’t worry, here’s a recap for you in photos and a video.
Our guest speaker, Jessica Fellowes, niece to Julian Fellowes and the official companion book author for the show, enchanted guests with stories of how some of the characters were based on her family and where else her uncle drew material for storylines. More on that to come in another blog post as I had the pleasure of interviewing Jessica and she shared several anecdotes.
My favorite part of the night was seeing familiar faces from past galas again. Everyone was dressed to the “nines” but it was incredible to see people outfitted in their 1920s best.

Last year cake artist Karen Portaleo created a cake in the likeness of Lady Violet. This year, she created a sugary tribute to Mr. Carson.
