NEW KDHamptons Party Diary: An All-American Fourth of July Bash at the Brandman Beach House

Kelli Delaney Kot pops a bottle of Mionetto Prosecco with KDHamptons writer Lucie Lott to celebrate the Fourth of July.

Who doesn’t love a good Fourth of July Beach party?!  This past Sunday, KDHamptons celebrated the holiday weekend at the beach chic bungalow of haute Hamptons hostess Melanie Brandman, who hosted her annual All-American bash.  With a waterfront view to die for, guests toasted Mionetto Prosecco and devoured dock-to-dish delicacies from Oshēn Salmon, as well as traditional July Fourth fare by Mark’s Quality Meats.  Of course it would not be a July 4th BBQ without classic signature dishes including: crab & lobster meat wraps, corn salad, potato salad, and watermelon with feta and mint from Melanie’s garden.

The night went out with a bang as guests lit sparklers, watched the fireworks stream over the bay, and danced on Melanie’s deck.  A celebration to remember! Sharing a fun photo diary of the day below or click to watch the video here!. Friends, flags, and fun…

Hot Hostess Melanie Brandman served a mouthwatering seafood tower of Maine lobster, and Chesapeake Bay crab meat from Mark’s Quality Meats.
