A Magical Evening at The Plaza Hotel in New York

Friday, October 22nd, 2010

My journey started in April. 18 cities later, I found myself in New York hosting the last party of the season for my new book Grace Ormonde Weddings- being in love never goes out of style. It turned out to be a magical evening.

New York is one of my favorite cities. During the day you get the sense that so much is happening that affects the whole world: The UN, Wall Street, business deals, commerce. And then at night, as the sun sets and the lights start twinkling, the city transforms itself into something totally different and a new kind of energy emerges. Its captivating.

So on the evening of October 15th, one of the city’s landmarks, The Palm Court at The Plaza Hotel, was transformed into what I can only describe as an amazing setting. The transformation was a testament to what happens through the collaboration of talented professionals. The decor, food, entertainment and presence of my guests, created an evening I will always remember.

I would like to extend a heart-felt thank you namely to the talented professionals who created that magical evening at The Palm Court:

Grace Ormonde
