Beauty n Books at Bernard's


This may go on record as our prettiest book signing yet.

And that’s REALLY saying something.

Please join us this afternoon at Bernard’s Bar, inside the uber glam Waldorf Astoria Hotel, on the corner of Walton and Rush.

We are signing books, sipping champagne, sampling Waldorf’s beautiful bites, and meeting hundreds upon hundreds of gorgeous brides, sisters, mothers, grooms, and more!

Merci beaucoup Chicago Social Brides and Waldorf Astoria for having us join in your Afternoon of Bridal Luxury down Oak Street today.

Tough job.

But someone’s got to do it.

We are ready and waiting for our sweet little Megan Lulu and mama Liz to arrive for round two of our Winter Wonderland Mitzvah late night treats tasting.

How gorgeous are these pretty petite bites?

Toni Patisserie and Cacao Treats have yet again hit it out of the park…creating custom soft, feminine pale winter color palettes, glittered and opalescent icings…snowflaked and monogrammed sugars, and deliciously, decadent designs.

Bravo, bravo – what a way to start a Saturday, fresh faced at ten o’clock in the morning.

Happy week-end to all.

Make it sweet.
