The Fun Never Ends

Last week was so crazy. The evenings were spent dashing from event to event and the days filled with a lot of work. Tuesday night Hearst had it’s big showcase bash at the tony Soho Mews. House Beautiful, Veranda and Town and Country presented their Designer Visions Cinema Style using designers Thom Flilcia, John Saladino and Richard Mishaan respectively.

Wednesday was Ronda Carman of All the Best party for SFERRA at Todd Romano’s showroom. The showroom was beautiful as always and Ronda did a wonderful job creating the perfect event for the perfect product: SFERRA sheets. After the party Ronda invited Amanda Nesbit, Susan Moolman, Thomas Burak and myself to dinner with Paul Hooker and Aaron Stewart of SFERRA.

By the time Thursday came I didn’t think it could get any better. Well, the Lonny magazine launch party was wild. Its was so packed one couldn’t move, but that was great because everybody was so much fun. Elizabeth Blizter, Tori Mellot, Katherine Stout, David Duncan, Alison Duffy, Heather Clawson, Eddie Ross and on and on.

That was just the prelude to a great weekend. Ronda then joined us for the weekend in Kinderhook. She is the best house guest. We stayed up late, ate too much, hosted a cocktail party for Ronda, went for bikes rides, took a long drive through the beautiful countryside and spent Sunday in Hudson shopping and lunching. It swell time.
