Spring Into Summer Party

The soaring temperatures in New York City (85 degrees today!) make me want to have a rooftop party. Whether you have an apartment in the city, a beach house on the coast, or a place in the country all you need is a little space and your closest friends gathered under one of these fabulous tents!

Available for rent or for sale these tents are exquisite. Instant atmosphere. They provide a place to hide from the sun or the rain. The tents are also perfect for a dinner party ( think glowing floor and table lanterns and lots of bright fabrics.)

The above table setting featured in Elle Decor October 2009 is a perfect pairing:

Clockwise from top left: Gooseberry pierced bowl by Michael Aram. Glasgow tumbler by Theresienthal. Trocadero glass by Nasonmoretti from Seguso Viro. Golden Morning cup from Neue Galerie Design Shop. Chevrons Gold presentation plate by Hermès. Perl dinner plate by Nymphenburg. Dhara lunch and bread-and-butter plates by Philippe Deshoulières. Troia flatware by Pampaloni from Bergdorf Goodman. Rice bowl by Jaune de Chrome from Takashimaya New York. Background of Cherry Satin Jam fabric by Madeline Weinrib.

Why not have this pergola tent set up permanently in your yard for afternoon reads or lunches. A magical spot for grown-ups and children to gather under for an Alice in Wonderland tea party.

I love both table settings above for an Alice and Wonderland themed party. Playful and whimsical.

Being a New England girl, I flipped for these beach tents. I would love to have a clambake on the beach with these fun tents as spots to change for a dip in the ocean!

Red, white, and blue table setting featured in Elle Decor October 2009 is a fun twist on Americana for a 4th of July bash:

Red, white, and blue table setting: Clockwise from top right: Sag Harbor Stripe water glass by Kate Spade New York. Wonki Ware’s Organic dinner plate from Bergdorf Goodman. Diamond lunch plate and Dot dessert plate by Ellen Evans for Terrafirma Ceramics. Alain Saint-Joanis’s Mistral flatware from Bergdorf Goodman. Napkin by Madeline Weinrib. Bubble double old-fashioned glass by Kim Seybert. Vine plate from Dandelion. Background of Malabar fabric by Bennison

West Village- Elizabeth Bauer Design

I was flipping through Vogue and saw much to my delight that they wrote an article about Elizabeth Bauer and her fabulous store. A girl after my own heart, Elizabeth loves the vintage find, french artists, and color, color, color! I stop in her store regularly to find that last minute, “must-have” for my clients. I snapped a few photos of some of her more irresistible finds while shopping a few days ago.
