Time flies when hosting one-of-a-kind, boundary pushing and beautiful dinner parties. The 5th installment of Jove Meyer’s Planners Dining Club is here and we can confirm, inspired. While previous dinners imagined by Jove and NYC’s finest creatives have all been original masterpieces, this installment of the PDC is unique for a few reasons: it was the first outdoor dinner, it was on a rooftop farm and it was perhaps the most globally inspired. Brooklyn Grange, a fully functional and sustainable urban rooftop farm overlooking the Manhattan skyline, hosted the planners that created this magical evening lending its vegetable beds and towering sunflowers to the occasion.
Fig & Pig created a menu that transported guests to Italy while Jove drew design inspiration from the documentary Wild Wild Country, a story about an Indian guru’s new life in the United States. Warm tones of yellows, oranges and reds were woven throughout the floral designs of East Olivia and rich materials were brought in by Fourteen-Forty, Patina Rentals and Broadway Party Rentals. The jovial tone of the evening also carried over to the band who dressed accordingly.
Taking place as spring transitioned to summer, the genuine warmth of this dinner, captured by Isabelle Selby, is once again proving the importance of coming together to create, enjoy and connect.
We spoke with Jove about creating this experience in Brooklyn, his inspiration and all who contributed their time and talents.
