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.

Matthew Baker and his mom, Lynn, are avid collectors who have been coming to the Gatsby for years. This year they brought his sister, Liz, (in red polka dot dress), his aunt Pam Nave, and Connie Zweigle (in off-white). Their picnic include an antique record player, silverware, glassware, pillows, antique linens, an antique camera, and antique wooden chairs.

My favorite, though, was the wooden picnic box that folds out into a table.
