LOVE is the Answer!!!

Posted by Stephanie Revell on

In honor of Valentine's Day and the fact that WE LOVE WEDDINGS, we want to share with you some of the amazing weddings we have been lucky enough to be apart of. Registering at Pryde's has been a tradition in Kansas City since our store opened in 1968. We love being involved so intimately in the lives of couples during the happiest (and sometimes, most stressful) times as they "create a home."

3 Fall Home Essentials

Posted by Louise Meyers on

You know how your house has a “season?” At Pryde’s, we delve into all the seasons, but our store truly shines in the fall. The glow of our well-loved wooden floors, the warm patina of French copper, the aromas of pies baking downstairs and the comfort of a hot cup of coffee or tea elevate the senses this time of year. This is when I bring out my Le Creuset Signature Round French Oven. It’s my go-to piece of cookware that gets put to use almost daily in autumn because of its versatility. I have literally cooked a thousand dishes in...
