Michael Pearce was awakened on his birthday when 10 friends jumped in his Tempur-Pedic vibrating bed to wish him Many More. After admiring his bed head, the pajama-clad group was served brunch by Chef Brandon Gregoire of Dig & Serve. Guests donned custom-made party hats with Michael’s face, and guess who wore the rhinestone crown?
Later that evening they convened with others at Staci and Quang Henderson’s poolside for a Saints and Sinners party. On the Saints side, Staci was in a long white gown, Matt Burrus was disguised as the Pope, and Layla Asgari and Taft and Dana McWhorter wore angelic white. On the Sinners side, Quang, Craig and Anika Jackson, Justin Hellyer and Laith Mahmood were in devilish red attire or evil black. Guests picked to sit at either the red or white side of the table. They were served a five-course dinner based on Bible scriptures as interpreted by Chef Ricky Arredondo. Leafy green (Adam and Eve) apple salad started the meal, which ended with devil’s food cake over raspberry purée. Sinfully delish.
