After nearly two years of working on this project, I woke up this morning pinching myself that my book, Camille Styles Entertaining, hits bookstore shelves and doorsteps around the country today. I am so excited to finally share the book, with its 75 original recipes, tons of floral design tips, inspiring table designs, and ideas for living your life to the very fullest. And cannot WAIT to hear what you all think of it! I couldn’t let this special day pass without expressing a few thoughts from the acknowledgements here:

The best moments in my life are always accompanied by an overwhelming sense of gratitude to the people who’ve been part of them, and this project is no exception. From start to finish, I’ve been amazed on a near-daily basis by the talent, creativity, kindness, and generosity of so many, and this book is a product of our collective efforts. I feel so honored to get to share it with you.

Major shout-outs and love to my photographer and friend Buff Strickland, designer Trina Bentley, floral designer Elizabeth Lewis and team, my agent Brettne Bloom, brilliant editor Cassie Jones, and the entire William Morrow team. And endless gratitude to many creative friends, too numerous to name, whose talents helped bring this book to life.

Okay, now go get your copy of the book if you haven’t already, and can’t wait to see many of you tonight at the launch party in NYC! (other tour dates listed here.)

    I got my copy today, and it is everything I’d hoped for and more! Your willingness to share your own sources of inspiration (and open up about hosting setbacks you’ve experienced) makes this a truly authentic book! Gorgeous, decadent, and real. You are such a talented writer, Camille. And what stunning photos, from cover to cover. A BIG congratulations–have a fantastic launch party this evening!

    So incredibly proud of you Camille! We’ve come a long way from trying to keep tents from blowing away at A71! Going to try to make it to Hotel Ella.
