Chocolate Brunette Grand Opening

A few weeks ago, Laura & I had the pleasure of working with Micol Corno, of Chocolate Brunette Pastry co. for her store's Grand Opening. The event took place at the bakery on June 6th, in the heart of Yorkville at Davenport & Avenue. The opening was busy all day thanks to local press, customers, neighbours, family & friends.

Micol (aka the official Chocolate Brunette) started her company four years ago, selling her Italian-inspired sweets through online catering. Micol dreamed of transitioning the online business into a physical store front - LKWD was there to assure an initial success for her grand opening day. 

Beautiful lilac florals were created by Sweet Woodruff. The event was captured by Tyler Rumi Photography who spent the day photographing guests sampling Nutella Cupcakes; a chocolate cupcake filled with a Nutella center & Heavenly Bites; Chocolate Brunette’s signature chocolate, hazelnut cookies. (Is your mouth watering yet?!) Chocolate milk shots were offered to wash down decadent treats, guests sipped on our LKWD signature blue-raspberry lemonade & one lucky raffle winner was presented with a gift certificate for Micol’s delicious treats. 

The overall event was a great success, introducing Micol to new customers and welcoming business. The day was filled with lots of love and of course - chocolate!
