“She leaves a little sparkle wherever she goes.”—observation stenciled on the walls of Kate Spade & Company, the fashion brand owned by Coach.

Designer Kate Spade, who died tragically this week, catered to the modern woman. Vibrant hues were creatively integrated into every design—whether it be a handbag, shoe, throw pillow or pen holder. The clean lines and bold colors echoed her approach to life.

This summer, embrace the energy, fun and fashion of Kate Spade at your events.

Assemble Brilliantly

Add chic quality to your meeting by incorporating these essential planning items:

Cocktail Glass

Everyone loves an icy, refreshing cocktail on a humid summer day. The metallic stripes on this glass make a splashy impression on guests. Use the matching shaker, jigger and ice bucket to set up a sophisticated cocktail bar. The website also sells champagne, wine and beer glasses to accommodate all palates.

Plates

After the cocktail party, it’s time to serve the food—fashionably, of course. Kate Spade offers a collection of plates with floral accents that bring a summery elegance to the party. Don’t be afraid to mix and match with the other dishware to create a one-of-a-kind display.

Thank You Cards

Hopefully, the meeting was successful. You’ve said your goodbyes and sent attendees on their way. Thank them for taking the time to come with these simple thank you cards. The cards also match the theme of the other two decorations, bringing the event full circle.

Travel in Style

Luggage

Make a switch from the dull blues, grays and blacks that characterize many suitcases. Instead, opt for Kate Spade luggage on the road. Her brand is featured on a line of vintage-style luggage with unconventional pops of color that will make travel a little less mundane.

Garment Bag

Meetings mean business—which also means looking your best. Pack suits and dresses in this garment bag, designed to protect your clothing. The nylon lining helps prevent wrinkles better than a traditional suitcase.

Sunglasses

Planning a meeting outside? Don’t let the sun get in the way of important networking. The Kate Spade line of eyewear boasts more than 40 sunglass styles to accessorize any outfit.

Ace Fashion

Smartwatches

Stay updated on time, messages and caller alerts with Kate Spade’s collection of touchscreen smartwatches available eight styles, including leather, stainless steel or gold-plated metal bracelets. If an Apple Watch is already part of your ensemble, the company also sells straps to make the device undeniably you.

Earrings

Stun at your event in these statement earrings. The pair comes purposefully mismatched, which makes you stand out from the crowd. Mix this daring piece with solid colors or bright patterns.

Skirts

Kate Spade offers a vast collection of work clothing. The pieces are simple, yet have the right touch of spunk. This polka dot skirt can be easily dressed up for an event, and then just as easily dressed down for a casual night out. Looking for a one-piece fashion statement? Spring for a dress with the same pattern.
