I’ve had the privilege of being a small business owner for several years alongside many other talented and creative women in the lower mainland BC area. I love the friendships and connections that continue to form and the support that we all offer each other! Trisha of Darling and Bandit, Justine of Justine Russo Photography and Olivia from Posie and Pine came with their little ones to join in on this little love day event! Everyone will agree that it was a whirlwind of a morning but no one really expected anything less with mostly toddlers involved. The photo’s are proof that the kids had fun and that is all that really matters!
Sophie, Bo, Cru and Marcella were a mix of adorable and entertaining. A feather boa and cute plastic glasses were the extent of our party props but they definitely got a lot of love! I made custom headbands for the girls and they ended up looking very well accessorized! The boys took great interest in the straws and tea cups while the girls got artistic and used crayons to trace the cups on their place mats! The children were the highlight of the party in my opinion so here’s a little more about them!
Sophie’s smile is beautiful and she was so happy and helpful, especially while her mommy was taking photos. I love how she hung up her sweater neatly on her chair when they first arrived and how she spent time taking in all of the details of the party!
Bo came dressed like a gentleman and has the most adorable little pucker! He is definitely as sweet as his mama! He gave me a hug when they left and well, let’s just say he could have asked to take home the whole cake!
Cru was definitely “Mr.Smoochable” and oh so entertaining as he made sure to keep a black and white tea cup in hand for almost the entire party! He left looking cuter than ever with a red smooch print on his cheek because his mama couldn’t resist during the mommy and me photos!
Marcella was our mini hostess and I was sure she’d be less than interested in sitting still at the table because of the fact that the party was at her house but she did exactly the opposite. She took to her mint and pink glasses with enthusiasm, enjoyed some tea cup tracing, feasted on treats and enjoyed celebrating with her new friends!
—>The heart shaped cake was a simple lemon flavour (thank you Betty Crocker) with homemade buttercream frosting and topped with fresh raspberries. Remember the whirlwind that I mentioned? Well, I actually forgot to serve up the cake entirely because the kids were so busy with their cookies and other treats! (sorry mama’s)
—>Speaking of the sugar cookies, after many flops in the past it was so good to finally find a perfect icing to frost them with! (recipe coming soon) The sprinkles from Dainty Sprinkle Co were the perfect decorative touch and made them almost too cute to eat.
—> LOVE balloons, ceiling spiral decor, napkins, plates and heart cups from EZ Party in Abbotsford BC.
—>The floral heart shaped wall hang and garland by Posie and Pine was the perfect backdrop for our mommy & me photos!
—>Sophie’s Wild Heart sweater and Cru’s Mr.Smoochable t-shirt from Darling and Bandit are the most adorable attire for a Valentines Day party!
—>Marcella’s Eco Heart onesie is made by Naturoco and was a perfect fit for the occasion!
—>The cute foil heart print on the party table is from Kardz Kouture, another local business that I love! Owner Jessica, creates all kinds of cute cards, prints and more!
