July/august | page 38 | 2016 B ack Row Home — the expansive Mecca of antiques, furnishings, lighting, home decoratives, linens and rugs located on the "back row" of Memorial Design Center — toasted its three-year anniversary with plenty of fine bubbly, including Moët & Chandon Imperial minis for guests to take home. Cheering: owners Tracey Shingledecker, Kelly Fogarty O'Donnell, and Leighton Hale; the bustling sales team of Cassandra Vazquez, Dale Sartin, and Cheri Mahoney; and partygoers Sarah Brooks Eilers, Bill Stubbs, Ginger Barber Nash, Chris Nash and Teri and Phillip Pugh. Next up, Back Row Home hosted Big Apple-based party planner DeJuan Stroud for a discussion and signing of his latest book, Designing Life's Celebrations (Rizzoli). Stroud's celeb clients range from Bon Jovi (who penned the foreword) to Michael Bloomberg. Although the Alabama native grew up gardening, he can throw a party that would wow even Jay Gatsby, as evidenced by his extravagant botanic decorations designed on the spot for the evening. Taking notes: Mary Jane and Bill Fogarty, Leslie Sinclair, Libby Gray, Alton LaDay, Jeb Galtney, Aileen Warren, Kiley Jackson, Carol Grigsby, Allison Callender, and Lisa Walker.
