A mong Round Top's signature bashes are PaperCity's biannual fêtes that mark the finales for the Fall and Spring Antiques Shows. This year, the soirée took on a fresh spin with the addition of Round Top Publishers under the magazine's wings and the debut of a signature event space, The Halles on Texas Highway 237. A festive fall gathering was in order, taking place at The Halles' VIP Pavilion, a handsome barn-like structure with historic, reclaimed beams — a building inspired by the legendary dance halls of Texas. To top off the party palette, Benjamin Moore stepped up as one of The Halles' premier sponsors. A signature event was born, one that celebrated the launch of the heritage American paint brand's 2022 Color of the Year. The night also inaugurated a Benjamin Moore Texas collection: The Colors of Round Top, selected by Houston designer Mary Lambrakos of Lambrakos Studio.

The cows had gone to bed for the night, but the stars shone overhead. Also among The Halles' sponsors were Circa Lighting, Perennials and Sutherland, and Moderno Porcelain Works. Coming forward to create the vignettes for the VIP Pavilion were Cisco Home furnishings; the placement was choreographed by designer Lauren Wills Grover of Wills Design Associates. One big hit of the show and this evening were the public art displays: the live-plant-and-sustainable-furniture installation Nature by CAMH-exhibited Preston Gaines and the Chromatic Distraction I light work by Patricio Marin and Greg Goodman. Both artworks made for some captivating Instagram moments. Other memorable party touches included bites by Blind Fox food truck cooked up by chefs Krysten Hanger and Keith Abate; Lalo Tequila-crafted Ranch Water cocktails; quaffs of Richard's Rainwater; and the rockin' sounds of the Black Cat Choir, Round Top's favorite band.
