Shipt Teams Up with Popular YouTube Design Duo, Mr. Kate, to Take On Summer Entertaining

Through a series of content, the home DIY and design influencer brand will show people how to conveniently and easily elevate home design and embrace their inner creativity using the same-day delivery service.

As cities across the country continue to reopen and summer is upon us, people are excited to get back to gathering and there’s no better time to make sure your home is in tip top shape for entertaining guests. Shipt, the personal shopping and same-day delivery company with a people-first approach, has teamed up with YouTube home design duo Mr. Kate to show people how to take their creativity to the next level and refresh their homes.

“Now is the time to embrace what we lovingly call your inner ‘creative weirdo’ - we’ve all been spending a lot of time at home and refreshing our spaces will help make it more enjoyable for having friends over,” said Kate Albrecht and Joey Zehr of Mr. Kate. “We love Shipt and we truly rely on their helpful shoppers to quickly get what we need - whether it’s new bedding or some glue sticks for a DIY project. Shipt Shoppers are great communicators, and they shop with a personal touch.”

Make the most out of your space this summer with these helpful entertaining tips from Mr. Kate:

  • One of the easiest ways to refresh and make a space more summery is by adding plants (either real or faux) and terrariums to add more texture and greenery indoors. 
  • Let your personal style shine with DIY projects. It’s a great way to change up a space to match the seasons. Like new artwork over the bed! 
  • Free time is one of the most valuable commodities for busy parents and DIYers. If you forget that final touch for your latest project or realize at the last minute that a guest has a dietary preference, rely on Shipt and your personal shopper so that you can spend more time on that new project or preparing for a summer gathering.

Mr. Kate has teamed up with Shipt to debut a series of content featuring the duo in their daily lives and as they get creative on projects around the home. As parents with busy schedules and nonstop projects, the husband-and-wife design duo know how chaotic life can get once summer activities are in full swing. That’s why they recommend Shipt and its network of trusted personal shoppers to help get all the essentials needed for daily life delivered in as soon as one hour, giving time back in the day to do what they enjoy - like backyard entertaining. Check out the first installment of the series here.

“We’re all excited about a lively summer and so many of us are looking to refresh our spaces as we host more family and friends this season,” said Sheila Grady, Vice President of Brand and Product Marketing at Shipt. “Mr. Kate’s content is a perfect way to show how Shipt fits into your everyday life from redecorating our homes to making sure we have all the ingredients for our next barbecue. This partnership is a true testament to our shoppers who act as an extension of you in-store, seeing beyond the shopping list to provide you with that personal touch.”
