Given the hordes of celebs poised to descend on Denver in the next couple of weeks, a Martha Stewart appearance hardly seemed worth mentioning. But then we heard about the cupcake contest…
Stewart is slated to be in town next Tuesday afternoon, August 19, to celebrate the first anniversary of the KB Home development that bears her name in Stapleton. As you may recall from previous Cat’s Pajamas installments, these houses sell for upwards of $320,000, and don’t even include a complimentary cookie on the pillow.
But someone’s got to sell them, and the folks at KB are trying hard. For next week’s event, they’re planning a catered lunch—which they call “luncheon,” because this is Martha Stewart-- tours of model homes, and of course, a cupcake-decorating contest. Yes, Miss Martha herself will be judging the quality of your frosting and M&M’s swirls.
If you can picture such an affair without gagging, then hurry into any KB Home development in the Denver area, and register to win tickets. There are just 100 spots available—50 winners, with each person allowed one guest. For a list of places to register, click here. But hurry; the entry deadline is 7 p.m. Saturday.
