• The Ladies of A-1


Our team was deeply saddened by the news of Kate Spade’s passing. Her style, creativity and zest for all things feminine and colorful have inspired our creativity throughout our lives. We adore her brand and everything that she created. We decided to honor Kate Spade by creating a table with her in mind.

We started with the black and white striped linen. We knew immediately that this was the right linen for the shoot. This linen is both timeless and fun, the black and white stripes are a staple for the Kate Spade brand. We paired this with our black polyester napkin for a polished look. Loose flowers and greenery were tucked behind the napkin for an additional pop of color.

The Capri gold flatware was a great contrast to the linens, and the gold rim glass charger with duchess dinner plate looked fabulous as well. For glassware we used the hi ball glass, martini glass, bourdeaux wine glass, and of course, a champagne glass.

Our rental associate Brett designed and produced the paper products and we love the shape of the menu and the mix of fonts used. The florals were purchased from Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods and assembled by Emilee in our showroom. We created a fun "bar cart" as well; using our Kate Spade books, glassware and shaker, paper straws and a bottle of champagne.

We love that this shoot is timeless and girly. We feel that this table truly captured the spirit of Kate Spade and the colorful life she lived.
