In December, we launched the Sisters Suite by Serena & Lily and Palm Beach Lately at The Colony Hotel with an intimate cocktail party of family, friends, local realtors, interior designers and project vendors. Come along today to take a peek at the magical evening and learn how to book your stay here with code “PBL” to make your vacation extra special!

We can’t thank The Colony Hotel’s team enough for their dedication to this project. Owner and CEO, Sarah Wetenhall, and her Marketing, PR and Social Media gal, Alex Hegarty, saw our vision from the beginning. General Manager, Bruce Seigel, expedited the process to make it happen in time for season and Manager of Fun, Rickey Kalinowski, made magic happen at every turn and worked overtime to attend to every little detail. We also had a variety of other hands on deck from their in-house crew that we are so very grateful for!

The Serena & Lily Team that includes Carla Rummo, Jane Stier, Kelly Curran, Brooke Maute and Ann Barz was such a pleasure to work with. They gave us full creative direction and attended to every little logistical detail like ordering and shipping, plus marketing, press and much more. We are so blessed to have worked with such a talented group of gals!

David Hobgood of Hobgood Construction and his wife Kristen have been friends of ours for a long time. David was our go-to guy for the Pineapple Pad and again for the Sisters Suite. Hobgood Construction’s expertise and attention to detail is second to none. He helped us complete this project in advance of the timeline and under budget… woohoo for that!
