picnic in Central Park
On August 10th, Fairweather hosted a pop-up picnic in Central Park on a sunny summer evening in collaboration with Something May, a Brooklyn based flower shop. Sarah Haman of Something May helped teach our guests how to use fresh-cut flowers to make beautiful flower crowns, the perfect summer accessory. Everyone’s crown represented her unique, personal style and everyone was excited to show them off. After all the guests were adorned with their flower crowns we munched on delicious macarons and other cookies courtesy of Financier Patisserie, who luckily has a store only a few blocks away from our office in Midtown in addition to more stores downtown.

HAMPTONS LUNCH WITH VICTORY CLUB
In July, Fairweather and Victory Club’s Stephanie Nass hosted an intimate lunch at a private residence in the Hamptons. Victory Club, a supper club that brings together friends of friends over the culinary and visual arts, hosts bi-monthly events in art-oriented venues. The beautiful Shelter Island home facilitated this weekend’s art conversation on legendary artists, such as Chamberlain, Lichtenstein, and de Kooning, who were inspired by the surroundings of the East End.
We kicked off the afternoon with conversation and rosé, provided by Topping Rose House, by the flower garden and pool. The guests were seated at a lovely lunch table–decorated with Kim Seybert placemats and fresh flowers–as Nass read the menu, which included Watermelon Salad, Long Island Duck, and Peach Pie. While dining, guests enjoyed looking at Fairweather’s Summer 2015 issue and sampling perfume from Lurk Beauty.
A trip to Sunset Beach was the perfect ending to a wonderful afternoon!
