A Very Gatsby Garden Party

Lovely guests of the garden party ready to take a spin.

Hello friends! I don’t know about you, but Summer 2015 has got me hustling! There’s been dinner & jazz in Montreal, tasty brunches and girl dates, teaching my first yoga classes, and trying to maximize being out in the sun – All on top of my day job! It seems I’ve been going non-stop for weeks now, and as a result the Rather Luvly blog hasn’t seen an updated post in some time. This isn’t to say that I haven’t had plans to post, oh quite the opposite! It seems I have a million ideas for interesting posts and pics to share with you, and I can’t wait to roll them out.

One such post is today’s A Very Gatsby Garden Party. This pas June, The Spadina Museum hosted a garden party on the property surrounding the gorgeous heritage manor. How quaint you say? Well, word got out about this little party and soon 42 thousand people  had RSVP’d on Facebook (say what?!), hoping to step back-in-time to picnic in true Gatsby style!

The grounds are filled with delightful hideaways.

What a view! This home needed 5 servants in order to run smoothly day-to-day.

It turned into quite the exclusive event, given that only 1,600 tickets were available for purchase online before the event. It was a race to snag tickets once they became available, and even though I found myself 304 in line, I made out with a pair of passes to the city’s most hyped summer shindig.

Among the entertainment at the party, there was a Charleston worthy jug band, croquet games in the garden, and two Mclaughlin automobiles pulled round the front of the house.

A little rain on the veranda couldn’t kill this party!

Charleston anyone?

“I like large parties. They’re so intimate. At small parties
there isn’t any privacy.”

– Jordan Baker in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby

This girl had it all – the beads, the pout, and a smoldering meets sophisticated demeanor.

A peak through the upstairs window revealed guests mingling in the gardens below.

The Spadina mansion dates back to 1818, but it’s the three generations of Austins, who lived in the house for over 100 years, who lay claim to the elegant interior enjoyed today. We waltzed from room to room, admiring family portraits in the dinning room and the antique chaise lounge in the library. With every guest of the garden party in full 1920’s guise, we certainly felt like we were one of Mary Austin’s charity function guests, about to sit down to a grand meal.

Beautiful guests of the Gatsby Garden Party, donning their lace, beads, and ruffles.

The #GatsbyGardenParty was certainly an event to remember, and one I plan to anticipate every summer to come. Until next time darlings!
