A Soiree Beyond Compare

Imagine stepping into a world where picnics have no boundaries and everyone is congregating in harmony amongst beauty.  The FP Garden Party is precisely that – an ethereal soiree that brings together the who’s who to enjoy time with their favorite people. Hosted within the confines of the Queens Botanical Garden, this annual picnic festival unfolds as an urban Eden, where the fusion of fashion, immersive installations, and culinary delights creates an experience that transcends the ordinary.


The FP Garden Party is not just an event; it is a sartorial symphony where attendees express their individuality with a kaleidoscope of colors, textures, and styles. When I saw the picnic setups which consisted of full blown table settings, candles and charcuterie platters, I knew I was in for a treat.  The attendees were living canvases, transforming the lush garden into a runway of personal narratives. Dressed for the occasion each fashion aficionado showcased their finest garden threads.

The music played the soundtrack that brought the party together playing the classics and house grooves that brought back memories.

Local cuisines were offered and prepared with love as well as prepared meals which graced picnic blankets. Premium cocktails flow like liquid poetry, offering a tantalizing respite from the summer’s embrace.

Sponsors Pronghorn, Sorel, Uncle Nearest and Uncle Waithleys graciously contributed to the evening while event organizers Neville Hall Jr. and Ariel Pesante made sure all the details meshed together. Event partners Queens Botanical Garden. Fleur Luxe NYC, Perspective, Boozee Bar and Brown & Balanced helped guarantee the event went seamlessly.  

Immersive Wonders
