Holiday Entertaining with Kate Spade New York.

I’m sure a bunch of you are hosting parties, dinners and family gatherings in the coming weeks and so we’ve partnered with Kate Spade New York to show off their fantastic tabletop and paper goods new for the season! All the black, white, gold and stripes are right up my alley, of course, and coordinate so well with my house we decided to decorate for a party!

Parties take a lot of prep. Fuel up with breakfast and get ready to run all your errands.

(How amazing are these Castle Peak bowls? And mugs? And creamer and sugar bowl?)

Time to jet out of the house with your cute planner, shopping prep reminders from this awesome sticky pad set, a fab travel mug full of caffeine to keep you going and maybe, just maybe, my favorite Kate Spade heels.

After shopping, get wrapping with this ADORABLE reversible paper (black and white stripes to gold dots- hello, perfection). I mixed in some leftover wallpaper scraps in a malachite pattern to add in a pop of color, but a bold color ribbon would look gorgeous too!

After all the party preparations you have just enough time to slip on something cute and sparkly like this jewel necked dress– no need for a necklace! I also love this simple black one as well, and this sparkly skirt!

Bottoms up! Pour the champagne and welcome your guests to your home!

These adorable striped coasters reverse to cute script-y sayings (cocktail napkins available too) and this adorable candle would make a great gift!

These striped acrylic straws are re-usable and add SUCH pizazz to any simple cocktail.

Coupe style champagne glasses are so elegant, and setting the table with this modern dinnerware set adds a little “edge”- a sprig of fresh rosemary tucked into the napkins whets the appetite with it’s yummy scent!

You don’t have to go crazy with table decorations, a great vase filled with one simple type of flower surrounded by glittery ornaments is easy and festive!

These cute confetti-like place cards lets people know where to plop down, avoiding any musical chairs!

Ready for a great meal and lots of laughs! (And yes, we invited Ryan Gosling to our party.  Sadly he was a no show.)

Post party it’s time to write your thank you notes like the gracious hostess you are, these monogrammed, striped lovelies do the job just fine.  And frame a snapshot in a matching acrylic frame.

Parties sure are exhausting, aren’t they?
