I’m so excited that my new book, Flowers, is now in bookstores! To celebrate, my wonderful friend Joan Rivers threw me a fabulous book party at her gorgeous home. Like everything Joan does, every detail of the party was thoughtful and elegant. It was so much fun to catch up with friends and colleagues and to celebrate a book that is very dear to my heart. I’m proud of my other books, too, of course, but if it weren’t for flowers, my career never would have happened. Flowers will always be my first love!
Here are some fun photos from the party. Folks came from both near and far (some as far away as Taiwan), and it was such a treat to gather so many of my favorite people in one room!
