Pizzazzerie heads to Martha Stewart in NYC!

As many of you may know from lots of twitter and facebook updates as well as a mini post a few days ago, I visited the Martha Stewart Headquarters and Show this week in New York! The best part was meeting some of the fabulous talented “party girls” that I have worked with and interacted with for almost a year. This includes Crista Scibelli, one of our Pizzazzerie writers!

We were there for 2 days of fabulous fun and enjoyed workshops and talks with Martha Stewart’s Senior Food Editor, Creative Director, and more! Enjoy these pictures!

The Party Girls enjoyed a FABULOUS dinner at Pastis! It was not without a wild story. So I was sharing a cab with Jasmine of The Couture Cakery over to Pastis to have dinner with everyone. The cab driver slows, so I open the door to get out. Another cab, however, had snuck their little car around beside ours out of nowhere. BAM! My door hits the other cab in a bad way. Won’t even close bad. So our driver moves forward, I close the door, we pay, and Jasmine and I hurry out of the cab. All is well except my phone that is now getting a tour around NYC in that cab. After many calls later and negotiating money later, I got my phone back. Lucky Girl I am!

Finally at the Martha Stewart Headquarters and with Pizzazzerie writer, Crista! Just missing Katie Saeger and we’d have the Pizzazzerie team!

Of course the breakfast at Martha is amazing! Yogurt parfaits in mini glasses. Darling! The offices were styled to the max. Everyone’s computer screens were huge and offices filled with color palettes, inspirational photos, and crafty amazingness. Entire rooms of props, tons of test kitchens, and a whole showroom full of fluffy beds for her bedding line.

Martha stopped by to chat with us!

We enjoyed a fun little cocktail party with bite sized eats and delicious signature cocktails!

Then we attended a taping of The Martha Stewart Show. There was a floral segment that day so the set was filled with gorgeous arrangements!

We then enjoyed a 2nd delicious lunch (with cute smores for dessert) and a food demonstration by one of the Senior Food Editors of Martha Stewart Living! She made Crepes (some with Nutella!)

It was an amazing adventure! I am blessed to have met such wonderful women!
