CELEBRATION IN SPADES

What: The party scene on the club grounds resembled a live shot from the “Great Gatsby” movie. Bars and hors d'oeuvre tables were set up on the back veranda. Guests descended an imposing row of steps to the grass level where tables with white-draped cloths and centerpieces of mixed flowers were interspersed on the grounds. Seated under a formal gazebo, a quartet played background string music. The setting was complete with water and ducks nearby and moving golf carts in the distance.
