Debi Lilly is a nationally renowned event-planning expert based in Chicago. She is the founder and president of A Perfect Event – one of Chicago's most successful special event companies with a faithful (and famous) following, including Oprah Winfrey! She regularly appears on The Nate Berkus Show with delightful party planning tips and now, for her own eMag Launch Party recently, her jewel box of a store (3050 N. Lincoln) was transformed into Versailles' 18th century France with the theme “Marie Antoinette Champagne and Let Them Eat Cake Fete”!
Imagine vanilla pink champagne cakes paired with vanilla moscato cakes filled with luscious champagne sabayon and this was just for starters! There was even a real life “Marie Antoinette” perched atop the elaborate sweets table saying “let them eat cake”.....everyone happily obeyed! Even the cocktails were reminiscent of something Louis XVI would serve!
The visuals were astounding, as only Debi Lilly and her team can do, and what a perfect Launch Party for her latest creation, A Perfect Event eMagazine! Prepare to be transported to an elegant and most stylish place in time! Congrats to my francophile friend, Debi Lilly, who continues to amaze us ALL!! (Additional photos by Steve Starr)
