An invitation into the endlessly inspiring and unique celebrations of the iconic tastemaker and hostess, this elegant entertaining book reveals how to bring beauty, style, and joy into milestone events, holidays, or everyday moments and meals.
Aerin is a lifestyle legend. From an early age, she learned from her grandmother, Estée Lauder, that any occasion can be beautiful if you take the time. In the pages of this stunning book, Aerin weaves a spell as she shares memories of beloved childhood traditions as well as those she has created with family and friends using her own unique blend of luxury and ease. For the first time, Aerin also reveals how she thinks about hosting and how she sets the most gorgeous and inviting tables so that every gathering is unforgettable.
Organized by season, this book encompasses more than twenty celebrations, from a spring floral dinner or a lobster-roll picnic on a boat to Thanksgiving leftovers in a log cabin and a white winter Champagne party in the city. Mini-chapters on stylish family and friends like her mother, Jo Carole Lauder; Daniel Romualdez; Caroline Sieber von Westenholz; and Maria Hummer-Tuttle reveal Aerin's own entertaining inspirations, as does an "Homage to Estée" chapter about her legendary soirées. Aerin holds back none of her secrets, her tips, and her imaginative ideas in this unparalleled, lavishly illustrated, and irresistible volume.
