As the last days of summer slip away, let's ponder the fun of the Grand Prix Sunday festivities at the world class equestrian event, The Hampton Classic. I captured some of the exquisite tables at this year's famous equestrian event in Bridgehampton, which draws riders and horses from around the world. With corporate sponsors and non profit foundations coming out in force, this is an event that spares no creativity. Some of the world's best equestrians compete, and the week culminates with Grand Prix Sunday under the tents overlooking the ring. We were ringside with our gracious hosts Victoria and Gadi Benhamo. Check out the sunny yellow and brown colored table and delicious food Victoria presented to her guests:

At the Classic, I bumped into my friend Pamela Morgan (event extraordinaire). You may remember Pamela and I worked on a non profit event for the Flawless Foundation
