A Surprise Party at Lily Pond

So many of you have shared how excited you are to see these photos of the party I hosted at my home in East Hampton - it was a huge success.

The party was for my dear friends, Ben and Bonnie, who were celebrating a milestone birthday. Their grandson, Will, and I, planned a wonderful outdoor gathering at Lily Pond. Our menu included a mouthwatering buffet of summer favorites - grilled steaks, squab, shrimp, and lamb chops, plus tomatoes provencale, dilled-cabbage-and-cucumber slaw, and potato salad. And finally for dessert - delectable lemon meringue cake with homemade buttermilk sorbet. To top it off, we also added a special live band performance.

It was such a fun and memorable evening - most especially for Ben and Bonnie. Enjoy these photos.

Preparing Lily Pond for a Special Surprise Party

As you all know, I love to entertain, but it’s even more exciting when I host surprise parties for dear friends.

Last weekend, I hosted a very special party at Lily Pond, my home in East Hampton, New York. My friends, Ben and Bonnie, celebrated a milestone birthday, and their grandson, Will, asked if we could hold the party at my home. I was thrilled with the idea, so we prepared a wonderful gathering for their family and friends. I wanted the decorations to be very special, so we set up a long dining table adorned with pretty shells and candles, illuminated the entire area with hundreds of tiny string lights, and brought lots of glorious, fragrant flowers from my Bedford farm.

Enjoy these photos of our preparations, and be sure to check back again tomorrow for my blog about the party - it was so much fun!

The 2017 East Hampton Antiques Show

Whenever my schedule allows, I always try to fit in visits to some of my favorite antiques shows - especially when they benefit good causes.

Last week, while on Long Island, I attended the East Hampton Antiques Show Preview Party. The event, now in its 11th year, was held on the bucolic grounds of the 17th century Mulford Farm - right in the heart of East Hampton Village. All ticket proceeds went to the East Hampton Historical Society. The show ran through Sunday, July 23rd, and was filled with a large variety of antiques, art, jewelry, and other vintage collectibles from more than 50 antiques and art dealers.

It was a wonderful summer evening - enjoy these photos.
