The VMAs came and went, and boy did I have a wonderful time watching them this year!
As you know, I partnered with COVERGIRL to host a a Chicago-style VMAs viewing party for a few friends. So, let’s get to some of the high points of the night.
My crew, who I officially deemed as my (VM)A-Team, helped me to bring the Chicago-centric menu to life! Berco’s and Garrett popcorn in apothecary jars (with printed paper cones for serving), mini Chicago-style hot dogs beautifully stacked alongside mini condiments, Harold’s Chicken on a fanciful dish and Ferro’s Italian ice in colorful dessert glasses. Our resident mixologist decided to round out the menu with a mind-blowing cocktail that included white grape juice + Chicago’s own Next Star vodka, topped with sparkling Chardonnay white grape juice and served over frozen, sugar-coated champagne grapes. Needless to say, the drink was a hit and kept the party going through the night.
