Butterfly Garden 3rd Birthday

Our sunshine filled Marcella turned 3 earlier in July and her love for the outdoors and nature inspired this Butterfly Garden theme party! When her older siblings are ready to come inside Marcella always wants to linger a little longer, playing with insects, picking red currents and flowers or playing in the pool. Her love […]

Our Living Room Reno

What makes a house a home? Love, family and the memories that are made there! These are the things that will always matter most but I have also learned over the past few years just how much ambience, specifically colours affect the mood and energy level of those residing in it.

A Princess Party to Remember

Most mama’s know that in the first 5 years of their daughters life a princess birthday party is pretty much inevitable. It’s a natural thing to want to dress up and be a princess for a day and that’s exactly what our oldest daughter (now 7) requested for her 5th birthday! With a 6 week old baby […]

Simple Mini Quiche

Our Christmas gathering with my husbands side of the family happens on Boxing Day and we enjoy a mid-morning brunch together instead of a traditional turkey dinner. This has always been more than okay with me because I’m all about brunch and much prefer to over eat a little earlier in the day than later! This […]
