Serena & Lily kicked off this weekend's Hampton Designer Showhouse festivities with a "barn bake" at its Wainscott Beach Market on Friday night. Showhouse designers, sponsors and Traditional Home editors enjoyed a lovely alfresco dinner featuring a super-size batch of Paella by Chef Peter Ambrose and Tea Twisters from Austin Cocktails, as well as shopping, mingling and a few games of cornhole.

"We were thrilled to partner with Serena & Lily Beach Market on Traditional Home's annual Friday fete before the opening of the Hampton Designer Showhouse," said Amy Churgin, Publisher of Traditional Home. "You couldn't ask for a better 'new trad' setting to kick off a weekend dedicated to Hamptons-chic style."

"Traditional Home has a strong and successful history with the Hampton Designer Showhouse, so we were especially proud to partner with them on the party to kick-off a great weekend and showhouse," said Jill John, Head of Sales for Trade and Retail at Serena & Lily. "Serena & Lily has always had a close relationship with the designer community through our Designer Circle program, and now, after being open in the Hamptons for just over a year, it was an honor to celebrate at Beach Market with such an incredible and talented group of designers."
