KDHamptons Entertaining: Make Your Spring Tabletop Pop Like Pink Champagne!
Easter has always been a favorite family holiday of mine. My sister and I would wear our prettiest new Polly Flinders dresses to church, then we’d race home for the egg hunt that my Dad had secretly hidden while my mom put together our Easter baskets. Designing a beautiful new tabletop concept each year has become my favorite new holiday tradition.
Have you already planned your Easter table design? I’m in love with this pretty in pink dreamscape which was photographed at Stephanie Lessing’s new Millstone Flower Studio in Bridgehampton by Eric Striffler.
Dressing up for brunch with my family at a favorite restaurant, followed by a decadent dessert spread of cakes, champagne, chocolates, and beautiful flowers is my idea of a heavenly holiday. Most of my pretty porcelain pictured here has been collected over the years at Hamptons antique stores and estate sales. I love to mix and match patterns in a pastel palette. The pink floral plates are from the 1930’s and were found at James Maguire Antiques.
For this shoot I collaborated with two new fabulous female entrepreneurs I recently met in the Hamptons: Stephanie Lessing (below), owner of Millstone Flower Studio (MFS) in Bridgehampton, and Jeanne Purpurra who owns Sugar Rush Bake Shop in Centerport.
Millstone Floral Studio offers a curated collection of ivory, white, cream and subtle shades of pink flowers for dinner parties, open house staging or events this summer. The color palettes change monthly and include: Peonies, Garden Roses, Hybrid and Spray Roses, Ranunculus and other outstanding seasonal blooms. SWOON!
Stephanie also hosts flower design nights, bursting with bespoke antique garden roses and other magnificent blooms for each person to create their own arrangement to take home for their weekend table.
Sugar Rush Bake Shop specializes in making fresh small batches of pies, cookies, sweet and savoury tarts and much more using all natural, mostly local and seasonal ingredients. Jeanne’s sweet pastel macarons, cupcakes, and cakes are as delicious as they are beautiful.
Baby roses were placed in these adorable tiny porcelain salt cellars (below).
A little mix of Chanel, Hermes, and denim is my version of “fancy casual” Hamptons style.
Styling a beautiful bar has become such a popular entertaining trend, I love the look of multiple bottles and glassware lined up which Stephanie paired with her gorgeous floral arrangements.
I am totally into the idea of serving casual caviar at the beach. I’m a devoted Petrossian girl. The Daurenki caviar (below) is decadent and delicious, and the beautiful cobalt blue packaging adds to your tabletop pop. If you’re not sure which kind of caviar you might like, you can always call a Petrossian Caviar Concierge. Trés cool, non?
Have a wonderful Easter weekend! Thank you Millstone Flower Studio go HERE; Sugar Rush Bake Shop, please go HERE and thank you Eric Striffler for taking such beautiful photos always! See more pix and stories on my Instagram.
