New York – The 11th Annual Jazz Age Lawn Party, sponsored by St-Germain, took place over the weekend (June 11-12) on New York’s Governors Island. More than 5,000 free-spirited flappers and well-dressed gents were transported back to the Roaring Twenties with period-styled cocktails, food and music throughout the afternoon affair. By end of the day tomorrow, more than 10,000 retro-minded revelers will have participated.
Guests enjoyed a “swellegant” day of live music by Lawn Party Host Michael Arenella and his Dreamland Orchestra. Dancing, gourmet eats and a variety of Golden Age-inspired cocktails showcasing St-Germain liqueur were additional event highlights, along with veteran guest Josh Lucas (A Beautiful Mind, Sweet Home Alabama) with ex-wife Jessica Henriquez and their son, Noah. Additional notables in attendance included: Lynn Yaeger (Vogue/Fashion Icon), Noa Santos (CEO of Homepolish), and Julia Loomis (Filmmaker).
St-Germain French elderflower liqueur, a personal favorite of Michael Arenella, was the signature spirit of the Lawn Party once again. Master mixologist Julie Reiner, owner of Brooklyn’s Clover Club, created signature 11thAnniversary Cocktails including crowd favorites, “Flappers Delight” and “Strike up the Band.”
For the first time this year, in celebration of the 11th Anniversary of the Jazz Age Lawn Party, St-Germain collaborated with revolutionary design start-up, Homepolish, that brings custom, attainable interior design to clients across the country (including Whitney Port, Manrepeller’s Leandra Medine, Rumi Neely, DANNIJO, Stone Fox Bride, Sweetgreen, and more). Homepolish and St-Germain brought a new and unique kind of experience to St-Germain’s classic Vive The Daylife celebration—offering the St-Germain x Homepolish VIP tent experience at this year’s daytime fete. Each St-Germain x Homepolish tent transported guests to two uniquely-different 1920’s moments – the “Bijoux” and “This Side of Paradise.”
