"It was the perfect summer day at Maple Shade; the historic Hamptons home of KDHamptons founder Kelli Delaney Kot and Dr. Mark Kot. Hosted by KDHamptons, the Luxury Lifestyle Diary, 
LUX Lifestyle Magazine and Bed Side Reading, the exclusive “Books, Bubbly and Blooms Garden Party” was held on July 2, attracting invited Hamptons influentials, tastemakers, writers, and passionate readers who came to celebrate the holiday weekend. A dynamic group of selected authors signed their hot new summer reads, and guests toasted with Kelli’s favorite cocktails while being served artisanal summer bites.

The consummate Hamptons hostess, Kelli Delaney Kot (above) is known for always adding a fun party trick to all of her gatherings. Guests swooned over Kelli’s jaw-dropping BLOOM BAR concept which was filled with over 1,000 fresh cut floral stems from Island Time Farm of Shelter Island. Weston Table Founder and CEO, Dianne O’Connor curated the BLOOM BAR design to look like a French flower market. Farm owners Kelci McIntosh and Chris DiOrio arranged beautiful custom bouquets sweetly wrapped in burlap and sealed with a pink pin for each guest to take home – a flower lovers dream!

Dianne included 19th century copper jugs and watering cans, a collection of vintage items and a European Wicker Basket Garden Wagon filled with hundreds of blooms to create a bit of South of France magic in the Hamptons. The aromatic Long Island grown lavender nestled in Myrtlewood Garden Trugs fully embarked guests on a journey of the senses to Provence. The wooden textures of the European Wicker Basket Garden Wagon offered a natural backdrop for the explosion of vibrantly-colored blooms. O’Connor believes that “style is a form of wordless speech”.

The event was hosted in the Kots’ gorgeous blooming gardens which featured charming conversation tables and sitting areas styled with Weston Table decor including French table linens, Arte Italica Scalloped Pitchers filled with layers of peonies and pink Chinese forget-me-nots.

Other garden entertaining details showcased at the event included Weston Table’s pastel pink and white Mosser Glass cake stands that served as pedestals for locally-made Sundae Donuts, sensational Oishii strawberries, Cheryl’s Cookies and beautiful NY Botanical Gardens tea sets by Tea Forte. Dianne O’Connor noted that, “Kelli’s spectacular blooming gardens and perfect catering created an enviable summer in the Hampton’s Fourth of July weekend event that will be remembered for its beauty, good taste, and flawless elegance.”

Twenty authors were selected by Kelli and Jane Ubell of Bedside Reading which places books by the bedsides, poolsides, firesides and in the hands of VIPS through their partnerships with luxury and boutique hotels."
