A Simple and Elegant Party

By Pinar Istek


On Saturday, July 9th, a street party organized by Pauline Streenkamer, an interior designer and the owner of the furniture store Simple Elegance, brought the residents and visitors of Nosara together at Streenkamer’s store. The theme was street life. Steenkamer said she wants to organize the event annualy, and include the whole street, creating a festival or block party atmosphere.

A block party is defined as “a large public party in which many members of a single neighborhood congregate, either to observe an event of some importance or simply for mutual enjoyment. The name comes from the form of the party, which often involves closing an entire city block to vehicle traffic.”

Despite the drizzling rain, Street Life party was lively enough to attract more than 100 guests. Tacos by Frit’z BBQ and deserts from Zen Café made the Saturday night dinner for the attendees, along with different kinds of beverage served. Additionally, DJ Paul Da Costa added to the atmosphere with his music.

The party ended around 8:00 p.m. after a raffle, where Jane Marchant, from Switzerland, won a Balinese couch and a beach bag.
