The morning of July 27th, we had the honor of hosting the Morning Mixer with our friends the BonBon Rose Girls!  The morning was a great excuse to see old and new friends during 'the big blogging conference' while sampling new Kashi products and enjoying the recently renovated Hyatt Regency Chicago. London Times kindly provided dresses for the four of us to wear to the event.  It was a dreary day in Chicago so the pops of color did not go unappreciated.

Morning Mixer with Kashi

The Kashi cereal, granola bars and hummus chips were a huge hit with guests.  As well as the Mimosa Bar complete with fruit garnishes and colored stripy straws.

We love party games.  To ensure our guests mix and mingled, we created a fun little photo challenge.  You can check the hashtag #MorningMixer on Instagram to see all of the fun event photos!

Great event swag can be hard to come by but our guests were treated to full size samples from Kashi and a Lands' End tote filled with goodies from Murad, Mark, Tiesta Tea, Minted, London Times, Play Logan Square, Heirbloom by Ahndea May and Itzy Ritzy.
