meeting amy

Sunday, June 24, 2012

last friday i had the chance to sneak out from work and head over to williams-sonoma for the book signing event of Amy Atlas' sweet designs book. i was there early along with party planner jennifer of petit delights, who i planned to meet at the said event. we both had a chance to chat with amy for a little bit. she was just wonderful and warm as she can be and i think i was a bit starstruck and overwhelmed just meeting her! 

she did a meet and greet with each arriving guest and took time chatting with us even before the event officially started. her whole presentation was engaging and full of amazing party styling tips. they served delicious strawberry trifle and the most refreshing red zinger iced tea with watermelon wedges during the brief presentation (both recipes are in the book). she also took time for pictures with every single one of us lining up for the book signing. she was so gracious and humble and i am so glad to have finally met her!

So fun! You look like you had a great time. I need to check and see if she's coming to my area. My daughter and I went to a signing for Bakerella a couple of years ago at Williams-Sonoma too.

That is awesome! I would love to meet her. Unfortunately I don't see any book signings for Honolulu at this time:(
