A Fine Party

by LM

Several weeks ago we hosted a party at LMD in tandem with Barbera Brooks, owner of B Brooks Fine Flowers. (B Brooks is the nationwide network of boutique florist – a top drawer FTD if you will). This is the second year that Barbera has had this party – the weekend of the  New York Gift Fair – the idea being that many of her floral members across the nation come to New York for the show, so why not welcome them with a cocktail party?

Why not indeed! I love a party – especially after 5 consecutive snow storms – so was more than happy to play host and piggyback a few guests of my own. Huge thanks to two friends for allowing me to pull a few favors: Larry Craig for bringing in the most delicious food (lobster casseroles, tiger prawns, filet mignon bruschetta, brussel sprouts stuffed with gorgonzola, chocolate chip bread pudding, sorbet lollypops, Oreo ice cream sandwiches…) and David Chang for spinning and – to my hope and delight – turning the event into a dance party. It was a great way to end a frigid January!
