CELEBRATE: To acknowledge a significant or happy day or event with a social gathering or enjoyable activity—Oxford English Dictionary WHEN I FIRST THINK OF THE WORD “CELEBRATE,” I think of party hats and confetti and people dancing and imbibing festive drinks, and I might sing to myself that old standard of the same name by Kool & the Gang. But then, when I sit with the word, I’m reminded that a celebration can take many shapes. It can be quiet and reverential; it can be warm, evocative, and personal; it can commemorate; it can engage and excite … and even mourn.

FRANCES PALMER KNOWS HOW TO CREATE MAGIC at her potter’s wheel, but she applies that same passion to her cutting gardens (especially dahlias), floral arrangements, and photography. Her new book Life in the Studio: Inspiration and Lessons on Creativity (Artisan, 2020) left us breathless with delight.

Beth Aschenbach and Danielle Norcross, the sister duo behind the lifestyle brand Palm Beach Lately, love the beach, their children, and the holidays. So when Rebecca Hessel Cohen, the founder and creative director of the boutique LoveShackFancy, opened their doors at The Royal Poinciana Plaza in sunny Florida just a few weeks before Christmas, the sisters welcomed them to their hometown by co-hosting a holiday party brimming with all things Palm Beach. “LoveShackFancy is an adult version of a little girl’s childhood fantasy,” says Beth of the brand’s clothing and tabletop designs. Walking into one of the boutiques is a bit like stepping into the pages of a Jane Austen novel thanks to its Victorian appointments, garden lattice, and swaths of floral fabric tied up in great-big bows. Working with her go-to…
