Emily McCarthy has a very clear path to her heart. It involves prosecco, great friends, and elegant dinner parties. (No doubt, you share the same tastes.) Allow us to set the scene for you: the stars of the show were Lance Jackson and David Ecton, the venue was a prime location in downtown Atlanta – The Capital City Club. The cast? Designers and partners who work closely with Parker Kennedy Living, the brain child of Lance and David. (Surely you’ve already read all about them during our Signature Style Series!)

Parker Kennedy is notorious for mixing vintage and modern adding notes of Chinoiserie. This table was so true to their signature style, and curated down to the finest detail.

The smell that wafted through the room was none other than our own prosecco candle. Can you imagine a better sensory experience? @shopinstantgratification created custom napkin rings with the one and only PKL pagoda, @changnatalie also showed off the pagoda on custom place cards. @paigeminear added the cherry to the sundae by making the red monogram atop the napkin rings.

A creation this epic could only have come from such a strong meeting of the minds, Emily was beyond thrilled to be included in this upper echelon of style.


What’s more exciting, and worth the celebration, is that Parker Kennedy is nominated as part of a talent hunt for Traditional Home! We know who has our vote, and they can have yours, too. Click the photo or click here to go directly to the page and spread the love to Parker Kennedy!

We’re already saving dates in our calendar for the next dinner party.
