Happy Friday friends!
This week I felt somewhat in a funk and I am so glad it is finally the weekend! Tonight Joel and I are staying in(he has been sick) and we could both use some r&r. Tomorrow we are going to the Chicago Cider Summit in the evening, and finishing out our night at the Above & Beyond Concert at Navy Pier.
*Side note I am most likely going to do an entire post on my favorite ciders from the summit because talking about Cider is something I could do endlessly!
Now back to what this post is really about: the bunch I attended last Sunday at Lil Epic Design.
As you can see in the photos this brunch was so unbelievably picturesque! My favorite part was connecting with a new group of bloggers(If you are a blogger and are nervous about going to events, just do it!) I was honestly nervous before the brunch because I didn’t know anybody else going, but figured what is the worst that can happen, I eat some delicious food and go home with some new photos?
Well let me tell you my nerves went right away because everybody was so kind. There were bloggers at all different stages in their blog journey, and I think that is what made this event so amazing!
We kicked off brunch by mingling, and eating some delicious food. The space included a mimosa bar, a mini pancake and waffle bar, caffeine station and tons of other snacks. The food and drinks were delicious and were staged beautifully(Shout out to Lil Epic Design for this!) It is very clear that Lil Epic Design is well seasoned and has a ton of unique things to offer. With one of them being these amazing flower walls(pictured below!) The walls are made out of paper flowers and are stunning. Lil Epic has made a ton of different walls, and have used them at various events such as weddings. For more info check out: lilepicdesign.com
Lastly we finished off brunch by munching on cake gems(made by Vanessa at Altissma Cake) and making a little floral arrangement(with Hiral from No Vases). The cake gems(pictured above!) are not only super tasty but are also gorgeous. The best way to describe these gems is a fancy cake pop without the stick.
I also have to give a shout out for Hiral for being so patient with all of us as we put together our little arrangements. I had so much fun doing this, especially channeling my inner horticulture queen(surprise I have a background in Agriculture!) Not only was Hiral patient but her business No Vases is pretty dang amazing! Hiral uses recycled flowers to make arrangements/hold classes(& of courses uses things that typically aren’t thought of as vases!)
So yay for brunch! and yay for the weekend!
