Fun story… I once babysat Brooke when she was just a baby. True story. We grew up in the same tiny subdivision called Roxborough Gardens, quietly located between the villages of Monkland and Avonmore, Ontario. Three of my sisters bought houses in that subdivision and Brooke’s siblings built houses right next to where they grew […]

Charger plates have been in use since the early 19th century, but as formal dinners have become less common charger plates, despite adding SO MUCH to a table design, are rarely used… so it’s not surprising that lots of our clients will ask, “What is a charger plate?” Allow me to fill in some gaps.

The phrase “The New Normal” has been tossed around a lot over the past year. We’ve tried to normalize wearing face masks, better sanitization practices, and how we greet one another (I’m a hugger… this has been HARD!). We’ve also had to adjust to new ways of hosting gatherings so that everyone can stay safe. […]

It was a crisp October day when we took over Jubilee Gardens in Rockcliffe Park. This outdoor, micro wedding had two main components: An amazing, clear topped tent from Rebel Tents. And a ceremony location on the grassy lawn, under some beautiful tree branches. For the party tent, we used round paper lanterns with warm […]

Certainly, we are not out of the woods yet in terms of this virus, and normal life is still a distant prospect. But we’ve learned a lot about ourselves over this past year and […]

I’ve been searching for my youngest daughter’s red shoe for three weeks. Shoe, singular. We’ve  had one shoe hanging around – periodically shuffled to a new location when it’s in the way – while the other shoe remains elusive. It’s likely stuffed in a bin, stuck under a stack of boxes, or tucked away behind […]

Sara and Scott were originally planning for their wedding to take place in December but when Covid hit they did the opposite of what a lot of other couples chose – they moved their date ahead (instead of postponing) and planned a gorgeous summer wedding with all the warm tones they’d hoped to have for […]

What a completely bizarre year. I’m not even sure how else to describe it.  I can tell you that we started the year off with really high hopes for 2020. We had some really incredible events booked for the year and we invested in a bunch of new inventory. We even moved into a larger […]
