It’s no secret that I have a crush on Desmond & Beatrice.

So, you can imagine my excitement upon receiving an invite to their holiday soirée! Previewing their delicious winter menu along with a hot cocoa bar, the evening was simply magical!

It was my first time visiting 2nd Floor Events even though Nyeus Inc. (where I work) designed and developed their website.  I was blown away by the beautiful space, and Desmond & Beatrice did an outstanding job of adding their own whimsical touches. We were treated to decadent seasonal treats; gingerbread cookies, s’more bars, red velvet cupcakes, oh my! There was even a photo booth with gorgeous crowns made by Lady Hayes and stunning tassel backdrop created by Studio Mucci! Nail and beauty zones were especially appreciated, where bloggers had their nails embellished by Nail Kandy and makeup touched up by Karen of Enamorado Syndrome.


Speaking of the treats: run, don’t walk! These snowflake gingerbread cookies are TO DIE FOR. Luckily, there was an abundance of delicious treats, and Amanda generously suggested we take a few home with us to devour throughout the week. I’m chomping on one as we speak! Nom!

It was the perfect girls night out, and I met so many writers, bloggers, and local business owners I admire.

I’m sure you’ve read Alyssa’s blog, Random Acts of Pastel. If not, you’re seriously missing out. Also, take a look at Brianne Burnell‘s website, her illustrations and zines are out of this world cool.

Thanks for a fabulous evening I won’t soon forget, D&B!
