This past Friday, Guest of a Guest headed out to the Windy City. City of The Big Shoulders. Stacker of Wheat. Player with Railroads. Sorter of Freight. Hog Butcher for the World. You know, Chicago...

Celebrating with our summer spirit of choice, Cointreau, we threw quite the festive midsummer fete with our Soirée in Bloom - if we do say so ourselves. A collective vision of Cointreau, Guest of a Guest and Molly Guy of Stone Fox Bride— every element and detail of the event was crafted to reflect the Art of the Soirée.

The patio at The James turned into a garden of citrus delights as guests muddled their own cocktails at the “Make Your Own Cointreau Rickey” bar, created haute flower crowns, sipped on the evening's specialty Raspberry Mint Rickey, and browsed an array of vintage frocks à la Molly Guy of Stone Fox. The hottest party for the hottest day of the summer. Take a peek at the al fresco soirée for yourself!
