Mixing bright reds and pinks is a must, never a faux pas in Kateland! Bouquets and centerpieces are a great way to add these bright, bold + cheery colors to your wedding.

Ribbons over plain white linens are an inexpensive way to add a preppy punch of color to your table. Go tamer with a monochromatic color scheme, or go bold with rainbow colors.
Ribbon belt details, like this placecard napkin ring (above), and the ribbon belt detail on the menu card add some preppy chic-ness to the place setting.
Books are such a hallmark of Kate - colorful books add charm and interest to a space.
Carry a book inspired fashion statement, like these adorably chic Kate Spade "Book of the Month" clutches
Use books (or fashion magazines!) underneath centerpieces or table centerpieces. Mini blank booklets with guests names on them serve as perfect place cards and double as favors.
Go for a whimsical look with mismatched china, gold striped linen placemats, and gold flatware with a bright "bow tie" napkin, or keep it classic with bold striped linens and gold flatware .

Going with plain white linens to save money? A confetti strewn tabletop is festive + fun and inexpensive way to add pops of color.
Mismatched china, gold chargers, bling-y napkin rings, gold table numbers, colored glass votives and white footed bowl centerpieces are classicly Kate inspired
Champagne is an absolute must for any Kate Spade-inspired fete. Serve it with a twist - like a brightly colored striped paper straw, or a maraschino cherry plopped in for color.
A smorgasbord of delicious cakes and cupcakes adds color, gives guests a variety to choose from, and just looks oh-so-decadent (but could actually cost less than serving one big cake)
