I love attending a fun event. Especially when it centers around food, entertainment, and pushing me out of comfort zone. During the #BeOurGuestEvent we went to the Williams Sonoma in Beverly Hills for just this type of experience. Who doesn’t love Williams Sonoma? Going into that store always makes me want to be better. A better cook, baker, stylist, everything.
The main attraction of the event is this gorgeous Le Creuset Beauty and the Beast Soup Pot. Simply GORGEOUS! Plus, it’s versatile!
Created in honor of Disney’s live-action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast, this vibrant blue-enameled chef’s oven by Le Creuset casts an enchanting spell over the kitchen. Featuring an iconic red rose design and a golden knob engraved with “Be Our Guest,” this special-edition piece is available in limited quantities.

Then we had a cooking demo with 2 great chefs. They cooked a hearty Meat Ragu that was my absolute favorite! A yummy Cheese Souffle and a mouthwatering Squash Soup Du Jour all featuring the “Be Our Guest” cookware. I have to admit I went back for seconds on the Ragu and am trying it out at home later next week!
After the cooking demo it was time to get our crafting on!
We had the lovely Sara Kim of HanmadeBySaraKim who runs a business dedicated to making handmade paper flower masterpieces for events teaching us how to make the iconic rose from Beauty and the Beast via paper crafting. I honestly thought some of the flowers were real until I looked up at it close. Her talent was amazing….mine not so much.
I started out my making my cuts too small so instead of a big nice beautiful rose….well..I had a rosette. If you squint and turn your head sideways a bit. Some gifts you are born with and some you are not. My friends, don’t count on me for paper roses, but the ones by other bloggers and the AMAZING ones by Sara Kim looked realistic.
Overall it was a great event and I’ll definitely be hitting up my local Williams Sonoma for their events they host regularly and you should too!
About The Movie
Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” is a live-action re-telling of the studio’s animated classic which refashions the classic characters from the tale as old as time for a contemporary audience, staying true to the original music while updating the score with several new songs. “Beauty and the Beast” is the fantastic journey of Belle, a bright, beautiful and independent young woman who is taken prisoner by a beast in his castle. Despite her fears, she befriends the castle’s enchanted staff and learns to look beyond the Beast’s hideous exterior and realize the kind heart and soul of the true Prince within. The film stars: Emma Watson as Belle; Dan Stevens as the Beast; Luke Evans as Gaston, the handsome, but shallow villager who woos Belle; Oscar® winner Kevin Kline as Maurice, Belle’s eccentric, but lovable father; Josh Gad as Lefou, Gaston’s long-suffering aide-de-camp; Golden Globe® nominee Ewan McGregor as Lumiere, the candelabra; Oscar nominee Stanley Tucci as Maestro Cadenza, the harpsichord; Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Plumette, the feather duster; six-time Tony Award® winner Audra McDonald as Madame Garderobe, the wardrobe; Oscar nominee Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, the mantel clock; and two-time Academy Award® winner Emma Thompson as the teapot, Mrs. Potts.
Directed by Oscar® winner Bill Condon from a screenplay by TBD based on the 1991 animated film, the film is produced by Mandeville Films’ David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman with eight-time Oscar-winning composer Alan Menken, who won two Academy Awards® (Best Original Score and Best Song) for the 1991 animated film, providing the score, which will include new recordings of the original songs written by Menken and Howard Ashman, as well as several new songs written by Menken and three-time Oscar winner Tim Rice. “Beauty and the Beast” will be released in U.S. theaters on March 17, 2017.
