This weekend, I attended the Gatsby Summer Afternoon, hosted by the Art Deco Society of California. The idea is to re-create an elegant afternoon 1920s party like the ones Jay Gatsby would host in F. Scott Fitzgerald's famed novel. Everything at the party, from the clothing to the cars, had to look or feel like the time between 1920 and the '40s pre-World War II.

Impressionist painter Peggy Gyulai, pictured with fellow artist Jeremy Sutton and her artwork, painted the program for this year's Gatsby Summer Afternoon. She said the image was based on a photo of a couple at last year's event. Peggy said she added the bow to her hat to match her green underskirt from a Paris boutique.
