Join Jamee Gregory as a guest at some of New York’s most exclusive private parties. Visit the homes of savvy tastemakers from the worlds of fashion, finance, and design, including Michael Kors, Evelyn and Leonard Lauder, Tory Burch, and Jamie Drake. Observe them behind-the-scenes, shopping at farmer’s markets, arranging flowers, decorating tables, choosing menus, dressing up dining and living rooms, terraces and gardens, and themselves, with great style, ready to receive friends.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Must-Read Books: Social fixture Jamee Gregory depicts fabulous at-home affiairs in New York Parties: Private Views." ~Harper's Bazaar

"[Jamee] Gregory, with photographer Eric Striffler, put together New York Parties: Private Views (Rizzoli), a high-octane compendium of 15 brunches, lunches, and dinners given by top-tier hosts. But just because the pages are filled with all the right people living it up in all the right places - fashion designers Tory Burch and Michael Kors, cosmetics executive/philanthropist Evelyn Lauder, decorator Jamie Drake, and architect Campion Platt, among others - don't think the book is all unattainable glamour." ~Elle Decor

"New York Parties: Private Views offer an insider's view of what makes a gathering unforgettable. It also shows how to cope with the unexpected." ~Huffington Post

"With her latest book, Gregory, a philanthropist, seasoned entertainer, and contributing editor at Elle Decor, delivers a deeper look into the spectacular homes she visited in her first book New York Apartments: Private Views by capturing them while at their most spectacular - when filled with elegant flower arrangements, soft lighting, the aromas of good food, and the conversation of friends." ~W
