As we are nearing the official end of summer and kids are going back to school, I realized I hadn't shared these images from my dinner party a few weeks ago. My building seriously has the city's best roof deck and I wanted get some of Lawrence McRae's new line of votives in action. They come in an array of gorgeous colors: mint, sapphire, chartreuse, and saffron, and they make the most gorgeous shadows when lit. He will be selling them on his website soon, but I was lucky enough to get to borrow some. I wanted to try and setup a proper photo shoot, but ended up having too much fun with my friends. Nothing says summer more than evening cocktails outside.
