Pink Saturday - Summer and the City



Happy Pink Saturday! I went to a cocktail party hosted by the Gilt Groupe for Author Candace Bushnell (Sex and the City)at the very chic Gansvoort Hotel on Park Avenue South in NYC. She has a new book "Summer and the City", that looks like a cute PINK clutch. Perfect for Pink Saturday. It was held in the Penthouse and surrounded by wall to floor windows and open doors leading to the most fabulous backdrop of "The City", the Empire State Building staring down as us like Mr. Big. Hmm that will be my name for it from now on! The pool had the cutest pin up girl made with tiny tiles. We sipped champagne, cocktails and of course Pink cosmos as the most perfect Hors d'oeuvres were passed around. They had chocolates that tasted like heaven from Christine Eats. A pretty Pink box with a shadow silhouette of a pin up girl and the chocolates were white chocolate with pink polka dots and chocolate brown with pink polka dots. My birthday is next Friday so I will not get a chance to start reading this book....but I can't wait to and when I do I will let you know how it is. I am sure "Fabulous"! Have a wonderful Pink Saturday and make sure you visit with Beverly from How Sweet the Sound for some wonderful Pink Saturday fabulousness! xoox

Happy Pink Saturday Grace Sweetie...
What a wonderful day you had. How much fun was this. The view alone was worth the trip.

I love that the book was made into a clutch, now that is down right clever. Who wouldn't want to be seen carrying that one to read? I love it.

Love the bottle cap photo, unique and fun.

The treats look so wonderful. Champagne and sweets for all. Yummy.

I love the 2 photos of the Empire State Building. SO gorgeous.

Love the photos with Candace you lucky ducky. WOW. Now tell me again who you work for? You have so much fun in the city. I love seeing what you see. Many thanks sweet friend, much love and many hugs, Sherry
