I think the cold weather alone should be enough to want to gather your friends and celebrate. A Winter celebration is the perfect way to stay warm and cozy on a cold night. That's what we had in mind when styling a cocktail party for 50 people in Brooklyn this winter. Comfort food was passed to the guests while they lined up for a variety of sweet eats. We love a boozy cupcake and have a fond obsession with Prohibition Bakery. Their bite size cupcakes are party perfect and make for great conversation when tasting the flavors. Peppermint snowflake shaped bark was a must at this affair. Minty, sweet and so winter appropriate.Now check this out and yes you are seeing these dipped cake pops in waffle cups.  Oh.My.No you didn't. SO good! All of the desserts were made by our sweet friend, Making that Cake. We styled the main dining room table with winter greens, hycientha flowers and wine red peonies. We added in fuchsia ornaments and star lit trees to make for a romantic setting. Our current obsession are these marquee lit stars from Restoration Hardware. They add instant beauty anywhere we light 'em up! For the cocktails we served a couple of signature drinks one being a winter punch packed with fresh cranberries, rosemary, apple and white grape juice. The other was a Bourbon cocktail which was a hit amongst the gentlemen at the party.Our client happened to have the most beautifully styled apartment. We are so lucky to have the opportunity to work with these incredible people who have such great taste. The guests nibbled on hors d'oeuvres from Cobblestone Catering including tomato tartlets, BLT bites, truffled mac n cheese and duck spring rolls just to name a few. The evening was a huge success, full of great eats, drinks and fabulous company.
