david stark book party

by Amy Azzarito


I have a soft place in my heart for books – after all, I did spend a couple of years in Library School and until recently, called the New York Public Library my work home. So this book-themed party from New York City event designer David Stark, struck just the right chord. The invite for this birthday luncheon at Arena Stage in Washington. D.C. which read “Life is made up of a series of stories. You are an important part of mine,” set the tone for the event. David was inspired by fairy tales and books – from the castle on the hill, to the Princess sleeping on the pea in a stack of book mattresses, or a golden egg nestled on shredded pages, and infused every aspect of the party with sweet reminders of how importance of charting your own story.
