WCBC Holiday Party Recap


Thank you to everyone who joined us at our second annual holiday party! We had the best time celebrating the holidays with you – it was the perfect way to close out WCBC’s 2015 events.


We have loved looking through all of the photos that our members posted on instagram during the event. Tot shared this great pic showing the totally glam outfits some the girls wore.


Lindzi snapped this while she was getting ready for the party.




One of the most photographed things of the night? This gorgeous wreath that Andrea said she wished she could have taken it home with her.


We worked with some amazing brands to make this party happen. Hyatt Centric provided the beautiful event space (as captured by M.G.).

Cochon Volant, the seriously amazing French restaurant on the first floor of the hotel provided wine and punch. Julie from Inspiring Kitchen snapped this photo of the wine.


Cochon Volant also fed our members some incredible snacks! ChiCityMom snapped this great photo of the cheese boards.

Our friends at Pretty Quick set up a party nail station. Fenique from Chic In Chocolate took this fun photo of her “blog wife”, Lauren’s manicure.



Think Jerky brought snacks for everyone! Their jerky recipes are developed by famous chefs, and they are seriously good. Thanks for the photo Natali!


Sprinkles sent us plenty of mini gingerbread and chocolate peppermint cupcakes. Nikki took a photo before digging into the chocolatey goodness.

And Fenique caught a selfie in action.


Each year WCBC selects some small local brands to host pop up shops at the party so that our members can finish up their holiday shopping. This year Vosges Haut Chocolate, Peoples Garment Company, Accessory Mercado, The Trendy Sparrow, and Vo Jewelry all participated.

Kaleigh stopped by Vo Jewelry to get inspiration from the “today will be your jam” necklace.


Jennifer Claire captured a beauty shot of the Vosges bonbons.


Cara picked up one of The Trendy Sparrow‘s “Bloggers Gonna Blog” tees.


And Kaitlin admired the colorful jewelry from Accessory Mercado.

I’ve been living in this cozy sweatshirt from Peoples Garment Company. Their tees and sweatshirts feature the logos from various Chicago sports teams from the past. This is the Chicago Whales logo, they were the team that Wrigley Field was originally built for.


We want to send a big thank you out to our friends at Rakuten Marketing who provided dozens of giveaway items! And thanks to Kendra Scott for providing some gorgeous jewelry for us to give away.

Thanks to everyone who helped make this WCBC’s biggest and best party yet! We can’t wait to bring you even more events in 2016!
