Entertaining guru Colin Cowie turned an Upper East Side townhouse into a showcase of decor inspired by beaches from around the world for a benefit for New York League/LifeStart. After walking through a sand-filled first floor, guests found that each of the upper four floors of the townhouse--the former residence of the event's hosts, Wendy Belzberg and Strauss Zelnick--had decor inspired by a different beach area. And each floor had different food, drinks and entertainment, all matched to the floor's theme.

The second floor was inspired by Careyes, Mexico, with turquoise and lime green decor, including lots of boxy couches and sunflowers, plus matching votive candles on cocktail tables. An interesting hors d'oeuvres: vodka-spiked gazpacho in shot glasses made of hollowed cucumbers.
