Catherine Burton and Genia Benton are creative kindred spirits. Although they went to the same grammar school years ago, the pair truly bonded after they found themselves living on the same small cul-de-sac. Catherine once owned a contemporary art gallery in Manhattan and studied sustainable agriculture in California. Genia lived and worked at the Getty Museum in California. With creative backgrounds and a shared affinity for beauty, health and local good things, the pair put their heads together. They daydreamed of creating a venture that would feed their creative spirits while offering flexibility around family life, all the while generating something good for the people around them. Their love for the beauty of the natural world was a shared, simple joy, and before long Fête was born. Known for crafting unique wreaths and arrangements with foraged greenery and natural elements, Fête is becoming a creative brand known for its unique approach to everyday beauty. Their joie de vivre sprinkles joy all along the way. As they say, “Local girls.  Local greenery. Uncommon design.”
