Miss A Columnist

Cate Bogue lives in the suburbs of Atlanta and has been in the South her entire life. After attending the University of Florida and graduating from Georgia State University with a BA degree in Economics and a minor in English, Cate spent most of her career in banking and later recruiting for the financial industry. Now she does what she's really passionate about as she loves to plan for, shop for, prepare, eat and write/blog about really good food while exercising to offset the food obsession! Her passion is entertaining, whether it's a super casual family get-together, a tailgating extravaganza for 30 people or more at an SEC or ACC college football game, a more formal holiday cocktail party or anything and everything in-between. Married to her high school sweetheart, Cate has two grown kids.

Boxwoods’ owner also feels it’s important to give back to the community. Dan explains that they have always been very strong supporters of the Atlanta community, specifically those organizations that benefit children, animals, health-related causes and the arts. Additionally, nearly every year since they  opened in 1995, they have set-up and run a unique “pop-up” satellite shop at the Atlanta Symphony Decorators’ Show House through which they have raised and donated over $100,000.00 to benefit the Atlanta Symphony Associates.

So whether you are in the market to decorate your space or shop for gifts, I highly recommend checking out Boxwoods. They have recently added an online shopping site to make your Boxwoods experience even easier.
