dorothy draper inspired

Oversize prints, roman stripes, lush florals, chintz, chessboard tiles, and exuberant color — all signature Dorothy Draper moves. Her sense of whimsy and playfulness is infectious; her passion for color + flowers is so inspiring, especially for fetes as joyful and full of fun as weddings.

"kate spade + cheree berry"

How cool is this installation by Cherre Berry at Kate Spade’s St. Louis store? Shaped around the idea of “take a chance,” shoppers drew cards from envelopes encouraging pure fun…laugh out loud, eat cake for breakfast, smile at strangers. These are all things I can get behind 100%. Every morning should start with sweets, in my opinion.

on entertaining

“I believe that entertaining should be a genuine extension of who you are, not a stuffy catering company and forced conversations. For me, it’s about a house full of fun and laughter.” -Deb Lloyd, creative director of Kate Spade as quoted in Elle.
