Just a couple of weeks ago, we were asked to create a cookie bar for a midsummer Gatsby-themed party being held at the lovely Haven Rooftop at The Sanctuary Hotel in Manhattan.  Imagining jazz playing, champagne flowing, and Fitzgerald's Gatsby looking dapper in his "white flannel suit, silver shirt and gold-colored tie", we went to work.

 

 

We created a table with a palette of champagne-tones, black, and white then added touches of gold and silver.  The menu included French macarons brushed with gold dust, petits fours topped with gold dragees, miniature madeleines, and vanilla meringues topped with sparkly sanding sugar.  There's a wink and a nod toward Jay Gatsby himself with the inclusion of our take on a Millionaire's Bar (our most popular tea cookie, Lucia, a three-layer shortbread, caramel, chocolate treat) and his lady-love Daisy appears in the floral arrangements.
