The Gallery After Dark presents The Art of Entertaining

On Thursday, December 7, 2017, the 1stdibs Gallery at 200 Lex hosted “The Art of Entertaining,” a master class in holiday entertaining. Guests learned how to fix “Merry Manhattans” from a mixologist, create the perfect centerpiece, calligraph place cards with stationery by Dempsey & Carroll, and brushed up on holiday etiquette. The host committee Jennifer Hunter & Georgie Tipper of J +G Design, Lydia Melamed Johnson, Hillary Mazanec, and Alberto Villalobos were on hand to make the festivities merry and bright. The center of the gallery space was adorned with a holiday tablescape designed by Cullman & Kravis.

The evening was part of the ongoing monthly series “The Gallery After Dark” which features extended shopping hours and exclusive programming. Spend these special Thursdays learning about up-and-coming artists, newly released books, specialty cocktails, delicious food, and of course shopping.
