Did you know Bailey House isn’t just for wedding ceremonies and receptions? How about a surprise birthday party for a musician with a love of the Grateful Dead? The house and lawn were transformed into Yasgur’s Farm, circa 1969. Tie dye, Frisbees, Hacky Sacks, lawn chairs and great music from the guest of honor’s band made the evening a great success.
A delicious backyard barbecue set up by Locust Valley’s The Brass Rail, www.thebrassraillocustvalley.com, completed the evening. Guests were invited in shorts and t-shirts, to relax and enjoy the good company, great food and music and the beautiful weather.
Our hostess provided personalized Frisbees, plastic cups and napkins with quotes from Grateful Dead songs, all adding to the feeling of hanging out in her backyard. These are the touches that elevate a party into an event. Personal touches make the event special and fun. And everyone had a great time!
