This week I should be celebrating my upcoming birthday, but instead I am feeling like my flu shot failed me. Since tomorrow is a day of celebration, I thought I would share one of my favorite birthday parties that was featured in Vogue. Hamish Bowles is a name synonymous with style, so it is no surprise that his birthday would be the chicest of them all.
The Great Gatsby celebration included guests from the elegance of Marina Rust to the island style of India Hicks to the fashion icon Tory Burch. Of course, when Anna Wintour is the host you can be certain that no detail will be left undone. From macaroons passed on fine china to a tented dinner under the sky, beauty was truly everywhere. The long day of celebration at the Long Island estate was surely an unforgettable party, as every birthday should be.
Aren’t birthdays fun? Even if getting older isn’t…
With late dinners this week, TPB will be back here Monday! I have some presents to open and an apparent flu to fight.

Simple invitations are always best. PS: That fabric on the chair…In love!!!
Macaroons on beautiful china and serving trays.
I love how this isn’t overly formal or forced. A casual and relaxed setting with different heights for vases.
