If there is one new book you purchase this year, I would most highly recommend Aerin Lauder’s latest: Entertaining Beautifully, published by Rizzoli this fall. We are huge fans of Aerin’s elegant and timeless style here at The Glam Pad and didn’t think her first book, Beauty at Home, could be outdone. But Entertaining Beautifully is absolutely a new favorite. It is an invitation into the endlessly inspiring and unique celebrations of the the iconic tastemaker and hostess, revealing how to bring beauty, style, and joy into milestone events, holidays, or everyday moments and meals.
Aerin and her family celebrate both Christmas and Hanukkah, and today we are sharing highlights from her lovely holiday celebrations, as featured in Entertaining Beautifully. In addition, we will visit Christmas Past with a collection of some of her most inspiring images.
Entertaining Beautifully is organized by season and 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 shares all of her secrets, tips, and imaginative ideas in this lavishly illustrated and irresistible volume.
Entertaining Beautifully is available for purchase via Amazon, and it would make a wonderful gift this holiday season.
