It’s now full-swing springtime, and as we head into summer we can’t help but note all the reasons to celebrate! With the looming presence of summer porch parties, kid’s end of the school year and changing seasons, you are more than likely to find yourself in need of some new house decor, thoughtful gifts for teachers or simply new goodies for yourself.

Luckily, Kelly Spalding Designs in Franklin can both help meet these needs (and more) as well as give you one more reason to celebrate! One of our favorite home decor, entertainment, and gift shops around, Kelly Spalding Designs is celebrating six years as a small business in Franklin!

To celebrate all that they’ve accomplished (which has been quite a bit- especially recently), they’re letting you in on the fun in more ways than one. This Tuesday, May 8 from 4pm to 8pm, you’re invited to join in the 6th Anniversary Celebration!

The celebration festivities will include the debut of their brand new Designer Workroom and obviously would not be complete without a few bottles of “bubbly” to pop amongst friends and colleagues.

In addition to celebrating all that they’ve accomplished thus far, Kelly Spalding Designs will also be introducing to party attendees their new season of merchandise just in time to snag your last minute Mother’s Day Gift (even if that gift is one your buying for yourself- we won’t tell anyone!). They have more than enough gift ideas to choose from– suitable for anyone ranging from your mom to your clients to your child’s teacher.

If you’ve yet to find time to make it over to Kelly Spalding Designs, now is the perfect chance to right the wrong! With door prizes, delicious food, and did we mention bubbly… you’re sure to feel the charm of this place that we already know and love!

An award winning shop filled to the brim with a mix of curated vintage finds, modern pieces, and handmade pieces from local vendors, Kelly Spalding Designs is also home to wonderful and talented women ready to help you with your interior design, staging, and styling needs.

Whether you’re a regular patron or a first time shopper, be sure to set aside your Tuesday afternoon or early evening to take some time to yourself and celebrate one of Franklin’s finest small businesses! We’ll see you there!
