1 The invitation
2 I am so proud to introduce you to my newest book, Martha's Entertaining, A Year of Celebrations.
3 The launch party took place on the seventh-floor at Bergdorf Goodman, in the store's exquisitely designed restaurant, a creation of Kelly Wearstler.
4 The restaurant is very sophisticated and was the perfect venue for this event.
5 Book signings of a brand new release are always exciting for me.
6 A great photo of my long-time publicist, Susan Magrino and me
7 In addition to sparkling water and red and white wine, the bartenders also served a deliciously satisfying pomegranate cosmopolitan, a recipe from the book.
8 Pierre has the greatest waitstaff.
9 And speaking of Pierre - here we are in the kitchen!
