TEFAF Dinner with Alexandra Porter

To celebrate TEFAF's first installment in New York City, art advisor, Alexandra Porter, hosted a dinner at her beautiful art-filled home. She featured the work of contemporary artists who had a connection to Old Master techniques. Some of these works were the centerpiece of each table -- and conversation. Flowers arrangements alluded to Dutch still lives. 

Guests were welcomed by a Gerard Mas Lady of Lipstick bust and Rebecca Smith Ford Trompe L'oeil paintings at their tables and enjoyed the salon style set-up of the dinner.

Alexandra included these vibrant Dutch still life inspired flower arrangements.

She began the dinner by discussing the story behind each piece and her connection to the artist. The menu was inspired by Alexandra and her treasures.  

The menu featured Chefanie's Smokey Butternut Squash Soup and Filet Mignon.

Chefanie made her signature Vanilla Bean Cake with a custom #ChefanieSheet inspired by Alexandra's patterned carpet.

To finish a wonderful art and food filled evening, we celebrated Alexandra's birthday.
