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.

This lovely picnic suitcase set belongs to Larry Pirack (far right), an antique vendor in Alameda, CA.

Also in the picture: Tony Inson, wearing a World War II military uniform for a rare rank—a chief petty officer pilot—Anastasia Ellis, a hat collector and antiques dealer; and Honora Forscutt in her fabulous yellow swimsuit.

    This picnic suitcase is so cool and the Art Deco event sounds really fun and interesting too. I wish there was a similar event in my area.
