Entertaining on the 4th

Backyard BBQs? Sparkler-lit dinner parties? Firework-watching beach picnics? 

As featured today on Vogue's Daily Coverage, here is one Gatsby-themed 4th of July party that is sure to set the scene for classic American fun. 

Gallerina turned PR superstar Betting Prentice is headed for the Hamptons, where she will be cohosting a Gatsby-themed benefit for Oceania with Lydia Hearst, Kristian Laliberte,and Hayley Bloomingdale in Water Mill, after which she and her husband, Jamie, “are throwing on jeans to head to Field Kallop’s [Chuck Close’s right hand] beach BBQ and bonfire party.” The next night the dynamic duo will host an intimate dinner at home in Southampton. Her tips? “Always reserve Lilybug scooters for guests so there will be no drinking and driving! And choose a subtle theme and stick with it. We’ll serve a Latin-themed menu, with cilantro-and-lime-marinated chicken with a tomato-and-avocado salad and tequila cocktails to keep things lively. Flowers will be bold and brightly colored, and our sound track for dinner will heavy on the Gipsy Kings. Jamie tried to hire an amazingly talented local mariachi trio for after dinner, but the group was booked several weeks in advance.
