Praise & Love Notes
Each spring in New York, DINING BY DESIGN premieres in a brilliant blast of cuisine, creativity, and spectacle. The event features design luminaries and culinary giants in a feast for the eyes and palate. Dining environments are created in a variety of styles and then displayed in a multi-day event for both industry professionals and the public to revel in.
Katydid was selected to design the space for MacKenzie Childs. Benefitting DIFFA: Design Industries Foundation Fight Aids, Dining by Design is their signature fundraising program. The unique event featured design notables such as Vivienne Tam, David Rockwell, David Stark, Marc Blackwell, Ralph Lauren, and Jorge Cazzorla.
“One of my favorite details of the wedding was the tulips hanging from the ceiling of the chapel. We wanted people to walk into the ceremony knowing that it was going to be a beautiful, whimsical, and FUN wedding! For the reception we chose to do four different centerpiece ideas which were beautiful. The bridal party table had huge cherry blossom arrangements that almost hit the ceiling. Baby’s breath, hydrangeas, and peonies are my favorite flowers, so the other three centerpieces had variations of those flowers with roses and tulips as well. The flowers blew me away.”
Our wedding celebration was beautiful and we have you alone to thank. From the gorgeous pink bouquets and centerpieces to the hot pink cushions…every detail was perfect. Best of all I never once worried about the flowers…I knew I was in the best hands and waited with great expectations to see your vision unfold.
We were blown away. Much love and deep thanks,
Thank you, dear Katie, for making our event so special. May God continue to bless the work of your hands.Much love, S.
Michael and I want to send a big “thank you” for all the time, creativity, and attention you have given to our wedding day. Collaboratiing with you has been a highlight of our planning process and we really appreciate all you have done for us…..
You did such a beautiful job with the flowers for our wedding! We can’t thank you enough for how gorgeous eveything was and your willingness to work with us until the end to make sure that everything was wonderful for our day!
Love and thanks,
I remember the first time we met at your studio when we talked and talked. And I remember the day that you told me that I could plan all I want, but at some point I would have to trust and “jump off the cliff.” I think I blanched at the thought, but as luck would have it, I found you and jumped willingly and gladly. Everything you did was absolutely perfect. You took jumbled ideas and brought them to coherent fruition. Working with you has been a pleasure and having you as a new friend – even better. Jumping off cliffs is not that hard when you have someone special to do it with.
