I Got To Party Like A New York Legend — And, It Was Glorious

Photographed by Alexis Buryk.
I've been to my fair share of great dinner parties in New York — or, so I thought. Then I was invited to an event by Filigree Suppers (a new pop-up dinner party series that partners with incredible chefs, florists, and makers in various cities) at artist and style icon Beatrix Ost's private home. From the moment I stepped into the space, it was clear the air was laced with magic.

The theme of the night was "Female Icons," celebrating talented women from Gabrielle Chanel to Dorothy Parker with a six-course meal designed by chef Dana Klitzberg. And we weren't just treated to an incredible meal. Beatrix's dear friend Eva Glasmacher serenaded us throughout the night with French and German arias performed from the second balcony. Not my typical Sunday night.

Ahead, all the inspiration from the evening, from entertaining tips to home decor goals. And, yes, I may have shamelessly #GPOY-ed in her incredible bathroom. You would have, too!

Instead of a traditional dining table setup, each course was announced. Guests then filtered through the kitchen to pick up a dish and returned to mingle in the main living room. The result? I met so many amazing women throughout the night!

I loved how Beatrix lined tchotchkes above each doorway.

I'm also stealing this idea to lean large-scale art on a shelf only a few feet from the ground.

A giant pencil holds court in one corner of the room — if you've got high ceilings, why not?

Despite our collective shyness, opera singer Eva Glasmacher coaxed us into the center of the room to dance a waltz while she performed. Can we talk about that chandelier?

You may not be able to tell, but the chair closest to the camera is actually hand-painted with a portrait of Beatrix herself.
