Highlights Of Jill Zarin’s Luxury Luncheon For Summer 2022!

Just got back from Jill Zarin’s annual Luxury Luncheon in Southampton–this year it was held under a large white tent on the grounds of the oldest house in the Hamptons, Halsey House & Gardens. Just to set the record straight, this legendary social event’s official title is Jill Zarin’s Luxury Luncheon By Ticket2Events. Ticket2Events is an event planning company helmed by the team of Brian Kelly and Sean Koski–and they have worked on some of the most fabulous parties in the Hamptons and beyond for the past few years. Jill Zarin has hosted this activity-filled lunch every July for the past seven years and this was my fourth time going! Jill Zarin’s Luxury Luncheon By Ticket2Events for 2022 benefited thyroid cancer research as that is what her husband Bobby Zarin passed away from a few years ago. Guests were treated to amazing hamburgers and hot dogs from the Whitman’s on East 9th Street in the East Village–and there were also passed bites and wine tastings at a couple of tables. (I fell head over heels in love with the light and refreshing Ultimate Provence rose wine being served!) Here are some of my favorite moments from this year’s Jill Zarin’s Luxury Luncheon By Ticket2Events below!

All the guests at Jill’s Luxury Luncheon every year get a gorgeous “flower child” style head wreath made with gorgeous roses. This makes for glamorous photo ops!
Beachwaver was on hand to do on site styling and people with the event’s Golden Tickets got a Beachwaver in their gift bags.
It was great to see that Grande Cosmetics had a booth at this event. Grande Lash is the “OG” of lash growth serums if you do not know already. Guests got full size sets of their fabulous lip plumper and lash items.
The Jill & Ally table had a lot of fun housewares and personal items like tote bags and candles. Guests were given adorable pastel colored bottle stoppers as seen at the front of the table here.
Female guests got Nippies and Nippies Tape which are the ultimate alternative to strapless bras when used together! Everyone got items customized to their personal skin tones.
I am crazy about Whitman’s in the East Village and ate a few too many hamburgers, cheeseburgers and hot dogs at this booth! I will be going down to Whitman’s soon because I will definitely be needing another cheeseburger fix this month!
All party guests got to grab a fun wine glass or two from this giant table of items by Bigmouth, Inc. Guests with Golden Tickets got one of their fun rafts in their gift bags.
I was thrilled to try Ultimate Provence Up Rose wine for the first time. Of course I entered their contest to win a trip to Provence as well! This rose is light and fruity and the stunning ridged bottles have a strong Art Deco vibe.
At the Meal Pass table, guests got to spin a wheel to win a Meal Pass logo wine glass and a bottle of wine from Osprey Dominion Winery out on the North Fork of Long Island. I “spun and won” and got myself a nice 2020 Dry Rose!
The prettiest booth of all belonged to Ketel One Botanicals which gave out cans of their new sparkling fruity vodka drinks including a remarkable grapefruit flavor.
My friend Rachel Kapur of urbanmilan.com enjoyed getting to know Vicki Gunderson of The Real Housewives Of Orange County and said that she was super down-to-earth.
