    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 particular picnic was organized by Art Deco Society secretary Angela Grimes, with the help of Karen Forsstrom. Their spread features vintage dinnerware and glassware from Noritake, Anchor Hocking, Grosvenor, and even Depression glass that was at one time given away at a movie theater.

    Jeff Bissiri (of the Art Deco Society of Los Angeles), Brian Nippa, and Karen enjoy the picnic. Angela shows off her pretty '30s dress.
