“Sum­mer is my fa­vorite time. I plant my­self in Wa­ter Mill, and ev­ery week­end, rain or shine, I host lunches and din­ners for fam­ily and friends. At my an­nual full-moon party, ev­ery­one is invited to drink great wine, eat de­li­cious food, and dance un­der the bright moon to cel­e­brate life. This year, ev­ery­one was filled with great en­ergy that lit up my back­yard pos­si­bly more than the sky!

“Lu­mi­nous De­signs (141 Cen­tral Ave., Unit F, Farm­ing­dale, 631-7700406; lu­mi­nous­de­signs.com) pro­vided twin­kle lights above the ta­bles and hang­ing lights in the trees, for a whim­si­cal ef­fect. The tal­ented Anas­ta­sia and Arthur from Sag Har­bor Florist (3 Bay St., Sag Har­bor, 631-725-1400; saghar­bor­florist.net) re-cre­ated my Alice in Won­der­land vi­sion with fresh moss and mul­ti­color ar­range­ments. Keren Pre­cel from Sim­ply Per­fect Events (212-254-2535; sim­plyper­fecteventsny.com) se­lected gray ta­ble linens, white linen nap­kins, and gold flat­ware to com­ple- ment the flow­ers.

“Frosé was the spe­cialty drink, and brick-oven piz­zas were per­fect for cock­tail hour. DJ NVM (djnvm.com) set the mood with oldies like ‘Wild Horses’ and ‘Tracks of My Tears,’ and my chef and dear friend Joanna Siegel started the feast with truf­fled-lob­ster salad.

“Af­ter din­ner was cleared, ev­ery­one was out of their seats, danc­ing un­til the wee hours. The last ones stand­ing were my friends Re­becca Cohen of Love Shack Fancy and Danielle Sny­der of Dan­nijo, who have great moves! When we’re to­gether, it’s al­ways a dance party, filled with good vibes.” ma­maand­tata.com

For her an­nual full-moon soirée, Candice Miller chose a menu that in­cluded truf­fled-lob­ster salad, mar­i­nated skirt steak, fin­ger­ling pota­toes, and roasted cau­li­flower, served fam­ily-style in a whim­si­cal, Alice in Won­der­landin­spired set­ting.
