About Kathy…

I have been creating spaces since I was a little girl doing backyard performances and setting up tea parties under the dining room table. I can still smell the fresh baked desserts and coffee that accompanied my parent’s weekly bridge games and monthly gourmet dinners. Polishing the silver, setting the china, and arranging the flowers with my mother was a magical time. And, whether with guests or just family, formal or casual, our dinners were always spent together around a table set with love.

So, when it came time for my wedding I wanted the reception to feel reminiscent of the days when my parents were hosting the best parties on the block and all the family was together. One of the details needed would be the place settings and table decor. I spent the next year collecting and adding to my china collection.

 Then, on an beautiful October day my husband and I toasted our family and friends before sitting down to a meal served on the 120 place settings of beautiful vintage china.There were so many details that made the day so very special, but it was heartwarming to know that both my parents would have loved the tables that brought our family together in celebration.

After the wedding the inspiration continued– I am constantly adding to my inventory and expand to share the table with even more people through UpStyled Place Setting. I feel so very fortunate to offer my inherent passion for creating and extensive resources to stage your memorable occasion. I look forward to hearing from you…”
