This week was the week for garden parties and between the MoMA’s Party in the Garden, the Central Park Conservancy’s Taste of Summer, and Cooper Hewitt’s Garden Party, I had to go with Hewitt. The whole soirée benefits the design museum and they couldn’t have done a better job.
You enter through gorgeous black iron gates on the 90th street side of the museum. My friend and I were dressed to impressed – him in a white dress shirt and custom navy suit and I in a bright green dress with a matching green blazer paired with a gorgeous necklace from Aris.
The decor was on point as well:
After a cocktail or two, there were the opening remarks thanking the guests for their contributions.
At 8pm, they invited guests inside to have a private viewing of the exhibits. My friend and I had snuck in prior to this and found this gem:
For the rest of the time, we caught up over some wine and food. Very delicious food, that is. There were a variety of ‘salad cones’, lamb bites, and truffle honey fig burrata with toast along with a make-your-own-ceviche station.
Overall, it was a very well executed benefit. I just might have to make it a yearly tradition. 😉
