HUG's Cookies & Champagne Event

Last night I attended a Cookies and Champagne Party! Those who know me will agree, this is right up my alley. The event was hosted by Hip & Urban Girls Lisa Ng and Wendy Kam. This was my first Hip & Urban Girl (HUG) event, but do these women ever know how to throw a party!

The idea was to bring 4 dozen cookies to exchange with others. So, this past weekend I went to work baking and decorating.

I'm really proud of how my cookies turned out. Here I am setting my cookies out at the event:

The melted snowmen were my favorite - how could you not laugh at these!

Obviously they caught the official photographer's eye too and the Hip and Urban Girls named it "the MOST original cookie of the night" in their recap post!

Barefoot Wine supplied the champagne portion of the evening and I really enjoyed the Barefoot Bubbly Pinot Grigio ($12.95, LCBO). They were also serving the Barefoot Bubbly Moscato Spumante ($13.15, LCBO) but I found it much too sweet for my tastes.

Guests enjoyed glasses of bubbly while shopping the mini-market of local vendors that was set up. I purchased a fantastic lip gloss from MarieNatie Cosmetics and an all-natural cuticle cream from Pura Vida Spa...ahh!

After the shopping, bubbly and networking with great women, the "exchange" started.

I came home with this delicious pile of cookies:

Yes, I took one of my own. :)

Overall, a really successful event. I'll be watching for more HUG events and will be marking my calendar for next year's Cookies & Champagne Party!
