Charitable Confection Cocktail Party this Friday!


Join us, won’t you?

This Friday we are so thrilled to be joining A Charitable Confection, Chicago’s top chefs, and decadent desserts galore to raise money for teen anti-violence group Project Orange Tree, one sweet bite at at time.

Pop on in – and sip, savor and scoop up our gorgeous gourmet gifts and candies galore – just in time for Mother’s Day, spring parties, and more.

See you Friday.

Happy Mumsy Day!


Hope you are having the absolute day of your dreams…

Here’s a peek at my perfect Mother’s Day, my four generations from Gigi to Lilly, in front of the world’s perfect candy shop, La Mere de Famille, Paris.

The Mother of Family.

Happiest day to you Gigi, to my Mama, and to everyone mumsy, everywhere.

Thank you to Rosemary Fanti for making my dreams come true for Mother’s Day this year.

Meet me in Paris tonight!



Ooh la la…

Just look!

Tonight is the night – Meet me in Paris.

Here’s a sneak peek at what we’re selling for Mother’s Day gifting, happy hostessing, spring parties and so much more.

Toni has done it again…whipping and baking and icing up the most beautiful petite sweets that you could ever dream of inside Toni Patisserie.

And, best of all, they are en route to A Perfect Event right now – which has been totally and completely transformed by The Savoy Flea into a French Flea Market.

(They are going to have to quickly restock, as I went over early this morning and put my own name on just about everything I could…tee hee.)

Plus cocktail chic from Pierre Ferrand, and frenchy fun in the Smilebooth!

(Can you say technicolor rainbow mustache and berets?)

Join us – 6-8 pm tonight, at A Perfect Event, 3050 N Lincoln Avenue, Chicago.
