Entertaining BeautifullyAn 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.

Aerin Lauder is the founder and creative visionary behind AERIN, a global lifestyle brand that creates cosmetics, fashion accessories, and home decor. Aerin began her career at Estée Lauder and continues to hold the position of style and image director for the Estée Lauder Companies. She has also been featured as a style icon in every major fashion and shelter magazine. She lives in New York with her husband and two sons. For more information, visit

Michael Grim has been in love with flowers all his life. Some of his earliest memories as a child date from when he would explore his grandmother’s amazing flower garden in Allentown, PA. Having mastered the basics at horticulture/floriculture school, Michael began his career at the St. Regis New York City. One summer–more than three decades ago–he followed some of his clients from the City to The Hamptons where he met his husband and business partner Jim Osburn. Michael never returned to NYC, making his permanent home on the East End where he and Jim opened the Bridgehampton Florist in 1986. Michael says the largest part of their business “is filling the most beautiful homes with fresh flowers on a weekly basis.”
