Martha Stewart at Home Depot

On Saturday, Oct. 20th the Home Depot in Buckhead hosted a free Martha Stewart interactive decor workshop.


The first 100 attendees received a $5 The Home Depot gift card and an autographed copy of Martha Stewart Living magazine.  Each attendee also received a free one year subscription to Martha Stewart Living magazine.


 I'm a big fan of Martha Stewart.


As she walked on stage, I couldn't help but smile like a goof when I saw her.


Also in attendance was Kevin Sharkey, the editorial director of decorating for Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia.


It was a such a great event.  I attended the session with fellow blogger and friend, Lakeitha.  We were so excited to see Martha and listen as she shared her favorite decorating tips for the holidays.


Her decorating ideas are always so amazing.


At the end of the session, Martha took a few questions from the audience.


She really engaged the audience and you could tell she was just as excited to be there as we were!


Martha, you're such an inspiration.

I love love love living in a small town - but this is one of those times when I'm a bit jealous of those of you who live in towns big enough to attract Martha to Home Depot.

Carol said...

What a wonderful experience! I'm a total fan, too! Our son who is an Executive Chef of several restaurants, just happened to be at one the day Martha just dropped by. He prepared lunch for Martha and her friends. His wife and I would so have loved to be there that day...lol! I think she is an amazing inspiration!
