When I discovered the Instagram account of Stephanie Booth Shafran, I was immediately drawn in by her stunning Jeffrey Bilhuber – decorated home and exquisite taste. And I was delighted to learn of her first book, You’re Invited: Classic, Elegant Entertaining, released last month. Recently named one of the top hostesses in Los Angeles, Stephanie shares her secrets for planning and giving brilliantly executed parties at home. From the table settings to the décor to the color coordinated menu, every party she hosts showcases a myriad of inspired elements.
The great great granddaughter of The Los Angeles Times publisher Harrison Gray Otis, Stephanie grew up in a home where her parents, Dorothy and Otis Booth, regularly entertained a wide circle of friends, instilling Stephanie’s passion for entertaining at a young age. Inspired by a love of decorating, interiors, architecture, gardens, fashion, and travel, Stephanie translates these passions into developing beautiful, tasteful events for family, friends, and charities. Today I am sharing a peek inside You’re Invited: Classic, Elegant Entertaining along with outtakes not previously published, and Instagram highlights!
Stephanie divides her time between her homes in Los Angeles, New York and Sun Valley, Idaho, which she shares with her husband, Steve, their blended family of seven children, and their three Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. You can learn more about her via www.stephanieboothshafran.com and @stephanieboothshafran via Instagram. You’re Invited: Classic, Elegant Entertaining can be purchased via Amazon where it is currently a #1 New Release!
