An insider's view--an invitation to imaginative private parties at the elegant homes of New York's most celebrated hosts. Seasoned experts share entertaining secrets. Join Jamee Gregory as a guest at some of New York's most exclusive private parties. Visit the homes of savvy tastemakers from the worlds of fashion, finance, and design, including Michael Kors, Evelyn and Leonard Lauder, Tory Burch, and Jamie Drake. Observe them behind-the-scenes, shopping at farmer's markets, arranging flowers, decorating tables, choosing menus, dressing up dining and living rooms, terraces and gardens, and themselves, with great style, ready to receive friends. Follow the Manhattan sociable set's gatherings throughout the year from SoHo cocktails and Fifth Avenue splendor to a Bridgehampton tented dinner and a Millbrook hunt breakfast, revealing how they entertain with flair. From Porthault linens to plastic glasses, in jeans or evening dress, at elegant holiday celebrations, imaginative birthdays, or an intimate brunch, this book features innumerable inspirational events. Sophisticated party givers discuss what makes a celebration a success--from memorable invitations and cocktail recipes to seating, and special welcoming touches. Dazzling portraits of unique rooms full of glamorous guests show parties unfold. Informative close-up photographs capture details of carefully orchestrated get-togethers, offering the reader myriad ideas.
