set your spring table, featuring courtney lake!

If you love making a style statement, then this post is for you. For our second installment of Set Your Spring Table with Mark and Graham, we’re turning to Oakland, CA and the stylings of interior designer Courtney Lake.


Also the voice behind the lifestyle blog, Courtney Out Loud, Courtney is a graduate of Stanford University and worked in high-tech marketing and events before launching his successful interior design business, Courtney Lake Interiors.  His writing and work has been featured on television, online and in print including: Life & Style Magazine, The Nate Berkus Show, Dabble Magazine, Apartment Therapy, and Adore Magazine among others, and my oh my, can we see why!

We’re loving Courtney’s flair for a major design moment. His table is luscious and beautifully incorporates a mix of wit and glamour for his springtime soiree.


Courtney created dynamic tablescape with a menagerie of florals. We especially love his faux peat moss placemats!


His table features the Thick White Dinner Napkin, marked with a signature C and Placecard Holders.  His barcart is decked out with the Grosgrain Border Cocktail NapkinsStencil Heart Cookiesand the Classic Handblown Cruet.



We also adore how Courtney used Linen Wine Bags as his thank you gift for those attending.

Each guest left with their own bottle of red with Courtney’s kind sentiment in plain type {grazie means thank you in Italian!!}. His thank you notes were also sealed with his own personal Initial Wax Seal.

We would feel lucky to be a guest at one of Courtney’s dinner parties. See everything Courtney would love to give and get for spring entertaining right here!
