TPD Magazine: Mix and Mingle

I’m a sucker for a crisp black and white color palette, especially when accessorized with a pop of green and a touch of sparkle.  When it came time to develop a new holiday party theme, I immediately drew inspiration from my Kate Spade china and her crisp, and preppy design aesthetic.  An untraditional pairing for the holidays, [...]

Parties by WH Hostess: Mod Fish Baby Shower

When it comes to baby showers, I prefer to cater to the Mom-to-be’s design aesthetic….not the babies!  After all, the party is for her!  It’s a great opportunity to pull in unique baby-friendly concepts, but perhaps modernize them to appeal to the adults in attendance.  We get so many requests for fish/under the sea parties, that I [...]
