What a clever-themed celebration for Southampton Hospital Foundation’s Summer Soiree!
As the iconic Colony Hotel Palm Beach proclaims “One foot in the sand and one foot on Worth Avenue.” The same can be said for the well-heeled philanthropists supporting this great institution which was founded in 1909 by a group of prescient residents, Stony Brook Southampton Hospital has remained true to its mission — meeting the evolving healthcare needs of the Eastern Long Island community. It continues to provide award winning, high quality services to a diverse population of residents thanks to its generous donors and sponsors throughout the community.
Known as the Grande Dame, The Pink Paradise, and many more appellations, The Colony Hotel Palm Beach has been stylishly stewarded by Andrew and Sarah Wetenhall. Since 2016, the popular couple has imparted their own verve to the property creating interiors with a joyful, elegant and timeless approach.
The Living Room, as the lobby is known, has been home to many a societal celebration from launch parties to intimate weddings. It’s also a great perch to sip and people watch — Palm Beach style.
The wallpaper by deGournay was inspired by a mural that hung in the original lobby first opened in 1947. It is a whimsical collection of flora and fauna and highly personal Palm Beach icons.
For what to wear to celebrate this sensational summer, we turned to Moda Operandi for the chicest ensembles and Columbian fashion designer Johanna Ortiz, whose got a real knack for topically tropical patterns. Midi or mini, you choose which easy, breezy style you like. We couldn’t resist the Staud Palm Bag for a bit of campy fun and these pairs of thick heeled sandals can stand up to a night of dinner and dancing. Johanna Ortiz also designs nature-inspired jewelry to add to the tropical vibe.
Catch the Breeze
And then it was on to Farm Rio for more festive fun. The brand is based in Rio de Janeiro where it embraces the motto “Dress in Happiness.” We couldn’t resist the pinkness especially in the Summer of Barbie!
Hilary brightens her choices, “The Southampton Hospital has a place near and dear to my heart. When my daughter Sophie was a little girl we had to rush her there in the middle of the night for stitches on her forehead. They took excellent care of her and there’s not a scar in sight!
“Being a Palm Beach gal, I love dressing up in bright colors a la Colony and found these bright pieces to fit the bill. So great to have a bit of PB in SH for a good cause hosted by so many of my good friends.”
