Real Housewives of Atlanta star Cynthia Bailey held her own “Island Escape” party this weekend thrown by celebrity event planner Courtney Ajinça, celebrating the release of her signature “Peach Bellini” drink with Seagram’s Escapes.
The show’s cast showed up to support the diva, including good friend and former castmate, Kenya Moore.
“Truly an escape for the senses, the space transported the guests onto an exotic island with aqua and magenta up lighting that was strategically placed and created a sense of warmth,” reads a press release. “Two islands were created in the center of the space, complete with sand and soaring palm trees. Exotic floral arrangements adorned the island and a metallic pink mannequin was placed in the sand holding a bouquet of island blooms and wearing a floral headband. The islands were completed with 6-foot acrylic replicas of the ‘Peach Bellini’ bottles.
“Turquoise blue water flowed throughout the space on the floor and around each island,” the release continued. “The VIP section featured plush Lilac and Cream caged couches accented by custom ‘Cynthia’s Island Escape’ pillows.”
With all cast members present, there was bound to be a bit of drama; Moore and NeNe Leakes reportedly exchanged words. Overall, however, Bailey and friends had a beautiful night celebrating her latest venture.
