As ever, you’re hoping to make your townhouse the envy of the East 80th Street. (You’ve got 1 percent problems, but kitsch ain’t one.) With eyes set on that golden prize, to have your eight-figure abode featured in the lustrous pages of Town & Country, you’re realizing that the art of domestic cultivation is harder than it looks. Tonight you’ll pay homage to the queen of all things home and horticulture, Martha Stewart, who makes everything look stunning—from tea-tin flower vases to orange jumpsuits. (Also, she’s 70. Seriously.) Ms. Stewart is being honored this evening at the Olana Partnership Award Dinner, and while her taste is admittedly a little down-market (DIY Valentine’s Day gifts? You prefer sweetheart diamonds), you have to give respect to the lady who made homemaking sexy.
The Olana Partnership-Frederic E. Church Award Dinner, New York Public Library, Celeste Bartos Forum, Fifth Avenue at 42nd Street, 6:30 p.m. For ticketing information, email Julie Spero at firstname.lastname@example.org.
