post No.659 Year’s End Events {pt.2}

Our last party of 2011 was our annual Cocoa & Cupcakes party. Every year our pals over at Snow and Graham fly in from Chicago to get festive with us. Ebony (the owner and director of S&G in the striped dress below) was super pregs and still came out to host the party with all of her creative charm and flair. She hosted a gift topper project social and also decked the place out in S&G paper splendor. It was so fun that all of our guests got to leave with pretty little gift decorations.  Stacia from Frosted Cupcakery brought over the BEST in holiday bite sized sweets. The ‘hi-tops’ in this first picture below are a salted caramel (left) and red velvet (right). These things are mind-blowing good. Mind Blowing. (!) People were huddled around the Frosted cupcakes all night long, and I’m really proud of myself for thinking to hide a few for myself to enjoy once the night was over.  Vosges Haut-Chocolat (pronounced, vohj o- sho-colah) was our hot cocoa sponsor this year and I can honestly say, that I will never ever turn back. I can’t. This stuff is so good that I ended up getting a bunch of it to gift to our loved ones this year. A true indulgence you must experience if you haven’t yet already. Finally, I’m super lucky to have Bonnie Tsang as a good friend.  She is talented beyond measure and I really admire her artistic eye when it comes to capturing moments behind a lens. She took these shots of the party and hosted the event with me throughout the night.  To all of you who came, thanks for coming and celebrating the holidays with us.  Happy New Year everyone!
