On a perfect, autumn day in Los Angeles, we had the pleasure to meet Martha Stewart at her book signing event in Beverly Hills. In case you hadn’t heard, she just released a stunning book titled, Martha’s Entertaining: A Year of Celebrations.
The incredible 432 page book follows Martha into her world chronicling events from Sunday morning breakfasts to elegant holiday dinners. It is a beautiful, intimate look at her dining rooms, kitchens, gardens and patios. Complete with a variety of recipes perfect for entertaining, this book is a perfect go-to book when you need inspiration. And with the upcoming holidays just around the corner, it couldn’t have come at a better time!
When we both met Martha, she was very gracious and kind. She spent time speaking to each fan and signed every book. Williams Sonoma, who hosted the event, was decorated for the Thanksgiving holidays creating perfect backdrop for the event. We couldn’t help taking a few extra photos. Please enjoy!
How has Martha Stewart inspired you? Tell us in the comments below! Here’s what The Bella Cottage employees have to say:
“Martha’s organizational tips have been ideal for my kid’s closets! We had the shelves and drawers re-arranged and now the space is used efficiently. It comes in handy when we’re getting them ready in the morning. And it looks fantastic, too! “
“I’ve always been inspired by Martha’s craft projects. Creating unique holiday decorations that don’t look store bought always adds character to your home and impresses your guests! Last year, I created my own wreaths taking ideas from this beautiful collection on MarthaStewart.com.”
“Her creative and gourmet recipes have fed my passion for baking and inspired me to experiment with my own recipes.
She is a woman who took something considered to be innately feminine and built a huge company from the ground up. She is a pioneer and an inspiration to other aspiring business owners, both male and female!”
