Author(s): Aerin Lauder
Aerin is a lifestyle legend. Her unique blend of luxury and seeming ease have struck a chord with her vast social media following, the worldwide devotees of her brand (which creates everything from perfumes to tableware to shoes), and the press. Her admirers know that two of her greatest, related passions are entertaining and family. For the first time, Aerin takes readers inside her deeply personal, phenomenally creative and tasteful celebrations, sharing how she thinks about hosting and how she sets the most gorgeous and inviting tables so that guests will thoroughly enjoy themselves. Organised by season, this book encompasses more than twenty celebrations, from a spring florals dinner or a white Champagne party in the city to a winter breakfast in Aspen and a fall kitchen lunch in the country or a summer clambake in the Hamptons. Aerin's mother's Thanksgiving in a barn and mini-chapters on celebrations by stylish friends like Daniel Romualdez, Caroline Sieber, and Maria Hummer Tuttle reveal Aerin's own entertaining inspirations, as does a Heritage chapter on her legendary grandmother Estée's soirées. Aerin shares endearing stories about the traditions she learned from her childhood as well as those she has created with her family and friends, and she holds back none of her secrets, her tips, and her imaginative ideas in this unparalleled, lavishly illustrated, and irresistible volume.
