Three lovely, successful and savvy business women hosted a summer soiree recently to celebrate, well, pleasantly enough - just summer! At a fantastic evening at a private home, friends were asked to wear all white (at the suggestion of one of the ladies) which only enhanced the beautiful natural view.

Being greeted with a floral crown bestowed on your head (created by one of the ladies), and the choice of Stella Artois beer or wines from Chloe or Volvic water, along with other sponsors, set the tone for making each guest feel welcomed and special.

Comfortable couches, pillows and chairs (some provided by Mecox) and styled by another of the ladies, hinted that perhaps we should all endeavor to make ourselves feel this special in our own homes!

Let's hear it for the guys too! Nick Fall, Coleman Brown, Conor Stansky and Brett Shapiro enjoy the evening. (Photo: Eileen Casey)


So, who are these ladies who created such a lovely environment with apparent ease?

Christy Doramus founded Crowns by Christy three years ago. The New York City based flower crown designer and floral stylist pursued her love of flowers and transformed it into her handmade floral crowns and headpieces (faux or fresh) for any occasion. With a background in Public Relations, she began with styling client events and eventually founded her own successful web based business, this energetic dynamo is an author too! Looking for that perfect, custom designed crown to your achieving glory or achievement? Visit www.crownsbychristy.com.

Amanda S. Gluck of fashionablehostess.com, a busy mom of two, is an entertaining and home decor event stylist with an impressive background. After graduating from Brown University, she moved to New York City, and did design for Macy's Merchandising Group, worked the fashion closet at Harper's Bazaar, planned special events for Sundance Film Festival and New York Fashion Week, and worked as the Public Relations and Events Manager for Alice & Trixie.

Gluck relocated from New York City to Miami, and for the past five years has enjoyed seeing her own blog evolve to include "Tablescape inspiration, hostess tips, wedding registry essentials, and home decor ideas." With features on Martha Stewart, Elle Decor, Style Me Pretty, Glitter Guide, Bridal Guide, and more, her various homes in New York City, Nashville and Miami have also been featured on Style Me Pretty Home Tours and Apartment Therapy.

This hostess with the mostess knows what's hot, what's not, and reveals "Tablescaping is where you can really explore what is currently trending, which is linens, anything white, gold rimmed dishes and gold flatware." For more visit fashionablehostess.com.

Lauren Nelson, a Lifestyle and Interior Design blogger, has been blogging for about three years. Currently based in New York City, she is originally from Cleveland, spent time in Chicago, and has now taken a big bite out of the Big Apple. She admits, "I have a very East Coast style, very clean with lots of blues and whites."

Offering up insider advice on where to shop, dine, stay, and play, along with what to eat, drink, see and do in locales from Montauk to Paris, Nelson keeps her finger firmly on the pulse of what is cool, and transforms those fingers to her keyboard so that she can share it with all.

With an attractive and easy navigable site, Nelson's straightforward posts let everyone know where to go and what to do when you get there. For more go to www.Lauren-Nelson.com.

Not even rain marred the happy Hamptons evening these ladies created, and with the fun vibes and elegant decor and style surrounding everyone, a grand time was had by all.


Eileen Casey spent many years working in the television and music industries in New York City on the "ABC In Concert" weekly series, as well as several prime time network and cable television specials.
