A Quince at The Ringling

Desi’s Quince at The Ringling was nothing short of magical. The lavish party was held in the Courtyard of The Ringling Museum of Art in Sarasota, FL. Built in the 1920s, it was a perfect location for the Great Gatsby themed Quince. We loved the art deco details with white feathers, crystals, pearls, candelabras, and gold accents everywhere. We can’t think of a more fabulous setting to celebrate Desi and her 15th birthday!

When creating Desi’s menu, we wanted to serve a meal that felt fun and sophisticated for teenage taste buds and adults alike. Listed below we’ve included her menu and magnificent vendor team.

Happy Birthday Desi!
