Entertaining with :: Lily Kanter

November 7th, 2013

The stylish co-founder of our favorite decor company is a hostess I can relate to: she loves entertaining, setting a gorgeous table, throwing an impromptu party — but she doesn’t love to cook. When Lily Kanter isn’t busy at the helm of Serena & Lily, she’s soaking up life at home, the very place that inspired the fresh all-things-decor company she launched in 2004 with friend Serena Dugan. Just like the simple but chic housewares we crave from each catalog, Lily’s entertaining style is inspired by global travels, pattern, and candlelight. Lily used several products from the new holiday assortment for her cocktail party — and the entire collection launches today! So check out Lily’s cool entertaining style here and hop on over to Serena and Lily to stock up on some of your own…

  1. so refreshing hearing that not everyone cooks gourmet meals before entertaining 🙂 i love to cook but can be kind of overwhelmed cooking for a group, ordering in is definitely a great way to alleviate the stress!

      Totally agree, Molly. Sometimes I like to take a combination approach — prepare one main dish and purchase a lot of the sides/extras. That way I feel like I can “handle” the meal!
