CHIC & STYLISH ENTERTAINING + WIN £150 TO SPEND AT KATE SPADE

First things first ladies, today we have a £150 Kate Spade New York Gift Voucher up for grabs!!! Yup, that’s right, £150 to spend at one of the most stylish stores on the high street!  It’s no secret we’re huge fans of this super-chic brand at B.LOVED HQ, and so to celebrate the launch of the new Kate Spade All In Good Taste entertaining guide to throwing chic and stylish get-togethers we’ve teamed up with the Kate Spade UK team to offer one very lucky reader a special treat!  Read on to find out more…

I was ever-so-lucky to get my hands on a copy of this gorgeous book for modern-day hostesses just before Christmas, and have been eyeing up a few uhem essentials on the website ever since.  Whether you’re throwing a beautiful birthday bash, sophisticated soiree or chic cocktail party here are some of my fave KSNY items for ensuring you’re the hostess with the mostest!

THE HOSTESS GIFT

Drink Me Wine Tote Bag £21.50

The hostess gift is somewhat of a dying trend, but one I think we all ought to resurrect!  I’d never turn up as a guest without a little something for the host and hostess, and a bottle of bubbly never goes amiss!  Carry it in this cute canvas ‘Drink Me’ Tote! BUY

THE DRESS

Open Back Dress £378

Every girl needs at least one LBD dress in her wardrobe, and this one is perfect for entertaining! Cute, flirty and the open back and bow detail add just the right amount of sass. BUY

THE SHOES

Sala Heels £135

Umm hello hot pink shoes with a glittery heel.  Need I say more? Except when you’re entertaining at home (or being entertained at someone elses) there’s no chance of sore feet, so make the most of it! BUY

THE VASE

Daisy Place Vase £63

No home is complete without fresh flowers, and that’s especially true when expecting guests! This typographic vase is typical KSNY style and would look fab crammed with hot pink roses (or peonies in season!). I also love the quote – “I’d rather have roses on my table than diamonds on my neck, with freedom, books, flowers, and the moon, who could not be happy?”. BUY

THE TOAST

Grace Avenue Toasting Flutes £55

Serve champagne and there’s always an excuse to toast, to birthdays, anniversaries, new years or just spending time with dear friends.  I’ve had my eye on this pretty pair of crystal toasting flutes for a while, isn’t the silver-plated bow detail is just adorable?! BUY

THE CLUTCH

Creme de la Creme Hedgehog Clutch £130

Home or away, all you need is your phone, lippy and keys, so you can totally get away with a tiny clutch!  Kate Spade designs some of the cutest novelty bags, and I just couldn’t resist including these cute-as hedgehog in my list. I mean, come on!! BUY

THE PLATTER

Say Cheese Platter £63

Anyone who knows me knows I’m a bit of a cheese fiend.  Give me a gooey chunk of ripe brie, slice of stilton and a pot of fig chutney and I’ll be a happy girl for hours.  My waistline isn’t so appreciative of my obsession though, so a dinner party is the perfect excuse to serve up my faves, on this ‘Say Cheese’ platter of course! BUY

THE FRAGRANCE

Be Dazzling Scented Candle £34

There’s nothing more inviting than a home filled with a beautiful scent and the warm glow of flickering candlelight, and this amber scented beauty will add a pop of colour and style to any hall sideboard or coffee table.  It also makes a lovely hostess gift! BUY

THE GUIDE

All In Good Taste £17.99

Last but not least, of course I had to include the gorgeous new book that inspired this whole post! You can pick it up online or in Kate Spade’s Covent Garden store now! BUY

Louise

After a decade-long career in corporate interior design, I took a giant leap of faith, left the security of an office job, and founded B.LOVED in 2011 as a platform for romantic and beautiful wedding inspiration. Thanks to a whole lot of creativity, hard work and passion, my gamble paid off and B.LOVED became one of the leading wedding blogs in the UK.

You’ll also find me working as an Editorial Stylist, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as contributing as a founding member of bridal inspiration hub Aisle Society, and running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive from our super pretty base in London. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.
