How to Host the Ultimate End-of-Summer Bash
Yep, it's almost time to swap that glass of rosé for a mug of hot chocolate. We know it's hard to say goodbye to the long sunlit days and warm, balmy evenings of summer, but just think about the cozy nights ahead of us. Instead of lamenting the end of your favorite season, why not throw one last hurrah and celebrate a season to remember? Rebecca Hessel Cohen of LoveShackFancy decided to do just that. Along with Violet Gaynor and Kelly Stuart of The Glow, Anne Keane of Goop, and Nadine Abramcyk of Tenoverten, they invited a who's who of women to join them in their festivities.
So on a beautiful evening in Bridgehampton, New York, they threw a stylish end-of-summer bash in Cohen's new dining shed with 25 inspiring moms—a girls' night in the orchards. "We wanted to create a space where you felt immersed in the beauty of the surroundings," she told MyDomaine. "An intimate space where you gather with wine, food, dresses, and dancing." To do this, they transformed Cohen's old shack into a magical entertaining space. Think fresh, local food, fresh florals, and a fairy-tale setting in the thick of nature.
"We made the evening about the environment and the experience," adds Cohen. "It's was about creating a visual and culinary experience and being immersed in gorgeous surroundings with beautiful food and music." There's only one word to describe that: magical. Ahead, Cohen shares her tips for hosting a stylish dinner party of your own.
