"[Jamee] Gregory, with photographer Eric Striffler, put together New York Parties: Private Views (Rizzoli), a high-octane compendium of 15 brunches, lunches, and dinners given by top-tier hosts. But just because the pages are filled with all the right people living it up in all the right places - fashion designers Tory Burch and Michael Kors, cosmetics executive/philanthropist Evelyn Lauder, decorator Jamie Drake, and architect Campion Platt, among others - don't think the book is all unattainable glamour." ~Elle Decor
"New York Parties: Private Views offer an insider's view of what makes a gathering unforgettable. It also shows how to cope with the unexpected." ~Huffington Post
"With her latest book, Gregory, a philanthropist, seasoned entertainer, and contributing editor at Elle Decor, delivers a deeper look into the spectacular homes she visited in her first book New York Apartments: Private Views by capturing them while at their most spectacular - when filled with elegant flower arrangements, soft lighting, the aromas of good food, and the conversation of friends." ~W

The book takes you behind the scenes with photos of 15 New York parties. It features holiday parties to Sunday brunches to a Hunt breakfast to parties in the Hamptons--then you see how the parties turn out once the guests arrive. Hosts of the parties include such style-makers as Tory Burch, fashion designers Michael Kors and Zang Toi, and interior designer Jaimie Drake. The book features centerpieces, silver and dishes used, menus from appetizers to desserts, wine and beverages served, music played and entertainment offered. A sampling of tips from this book:
*Guests like to recognize the food they're eating--it's okay to offer classic, simple food. (Michael Kors)
*Use one scent throughout the house & have food for every diet (Jaimie Drake)
*Ask someone to bring a new face--strangers make conversation fun. (Zang Toi)
*Have guests describe a book, art or experience they relished--email them to attendees.
*Seat all the bores at one table--just kidding--the author said this is an adage NOT to follow. Besides, who can be boring at parties like these?Read more ›
