The Summer Party at The Glass House, New Canaan Connecticut - June 22, 2013

The Glass House, a modern iconic architectural masterpiece in New Canaan Connecticut hosted their annual Summer Party on June 22, 2013.  This year's Summer Party kicked off under bright sunny skies at noon to a cocktail reception with Chandon Sparkling wine, canapes by Elm, music by DJ Arp, and an afternoon picnic complete with picnic baskets and Dunhill blankets on the lawn of the Glass House premise.  

Guests arrived in the attire of fashionable summer chic as you can see from scenes of the party below!  The summer afternoon picnic party concluded with desserts and silent auctions of renowned works by Jeff Koons, Alfred Dunhill, Wendell Castle, and other contemporary luminaries in the arts.

The Glass House Summer Party was hosted in partnership with Alfred Dunhill and Swarovski.  Other sponsors of this year's event included Design Within Reach, Neat Artisan Coffee, Voss Artesian Water, Aesop, and the Alpine Creative Group.  The 2013 Glass House season is open to visitors from May through the end of November - worth a trek outside NYC for a nice weekend day trip!
