On yesterday’s beautiful evening, I had the pleasure of hitting Secret Summer NYC, a cocktail and farm-to-table garden party in the courtyard of The Foundry, which spun magic with its ambiance that fell somewhere between renaissance fȇte & fairyland. Twelve rooms that each transported me to a new dimension were adorned with other-worldly decor, bars featuring inventive mixology, fresh grilled meats & seafood and local produce by Rapt Affairs. For hours I leisurely ate, drank and took in the fabulous entertainment. Check out the highlights below:

The party was outdoors in the courtyard of The Foundry, so everyone was dressed in chic summer looks. It was light, airy and whimsical, so I wore a cotton blend navy floral mini dress and paired it with a small structured white handbag and color block stiletto sandals.
This pretty little drink had corn milk in it, and it was delicious!
And this one, made with Queens Courage Gin, watermelon and olive oil was really refreshing.
Those little pink drinks are made with Cachaça 51, strawberries and aromatic herbs! Yum!
Steak, chicken and fresh veggies, oh my! Made right in front of us, this meal from Rapt Affairs was perfect for outdoor eating!
And then there were the food trucks. Don’t ask how many grilled cheese sandwiches I had from Morris–that truffle salt on the bread was EVERYTHING.
And because there’s always a second stomach for dessert, I couldn’t resist double chocolate ice cream from Van Leweuwen.
