Entertaining and glamour go hand in hand. Here at KF, when we think of a fabulous party, we are decked out in our most gorgeous ensembles and have the perfect room for hosting to match!
Decorating for glam entertaining isn’t as hard as you might think. It’s all about a little planning and prep and thinking through what you have, and how you want to utilize it to create something beautiful and inviting. The proper crystal, china, flatware, and centerpieces quickly turn your table into a place of glamorous fantasies. We asked Kathy for tips and pointers on creating a perfectly luxe tablescape, and as an avid collector of dish and glassware, she styled out her dining room to create a gorgeous and stunning table and gave us plenty of inspo for our next dinner party.
Always have something for guests to nosh on when they arrive like a beautiful cheese plate and a glass of bubbles to start.
Classic, refined, and striking with beautiful pieces make for a beautiful table, which is inviting and delightful when hosting guests. Gold finishes and candlelight gleam and look stunning at any dinner party and create an ambiance so guests will want to linger and enjoy. Mixing different glassware patterns creates an added layer of elegance and style.
Monogrammed table linens, such as a runner, add a level of personalization to your table that is very sophisticated.
Mixing vintage sterling silver with modern day pieces is yet another way to create a chic tablescape.
KF Tip ~ Mixing old with new is an amazing way to add interest to any table. Classic crystal, wine and champagne glasses with a modern, chic water glass, gives a certain flare to the decor.

Nothing makes a cocktail better than gorgeous, glam glassware.
KF is known for texture, texture, texture! Kathy is a big promoter of using different types of textiles to create a beautiful space and make a room feel richer and more extravagant. Kathy suggests, rather than going the traditional route of chair cushions, try a faux fur hide in your chairs, and add a glam statement-making throw pillow to finish it off with the perfect touch of glitz. Shop an amazing assortment of throw pillows for any room at isabellacollection.com.
Candlelight adds a certain ambience that makes any room a little sexier and more alluring. Lighting a few candles and placing them throughout your space instantly ups the glam factor and no dinner party should be without them. Kathy found these gorgeous flameless candles from Z. Gallerie. They add the perfect touch of added elegance and glow all evening long.
A glass of wine by the fire after a beautiful evening entertaining is always well deserved.
KF Tip ~ never forget to take care of the hostess at the end of the evening.
