“Winter ONE-derland” Theme for a First Birthday

Leave it to the shortest month of the year to be packed with special occasions. Some of my most favourite people celebrated a milestone chapter in their life, succeeded a professional accomplishment, started a new job, and two very dear people to me have birthdays during this month. Basically, celebrating life is how this February …

Creating a Hot Chocolate Bar

Themed bars are my favourite corners to set up when hosting a party. Aside from the functional benefit of having a designated area for thirsty guests, it's such a fun decor addition to amp up our event. For previous parties, I've dressed up our kitchen bar in taco theme and mermaid theme, so when Christmas comes around, I …

4 Easy Holiday Hosting Ideas

People embrace winter in different ways.  Some people take it as the perfect time to travel to warmer climates, others welcome it to play or watch their favourite winter sports, and a select few choose to embrace this season by journeying off to snowy adventures. For my boyfriend and I, winter is a time to …

Hosting an Afternoon Tea

My Instagram is no stranger to perfectly-placed flat lay shots of cozy Afternoon Tea spreads. If you know me, you know that I'm obsessed with tea, antiques and delicious treats, and going for Afternoon Tea checks off all those boxes.  My first experience with High Tea was when I planned my best friend's bridal shower, and I've been …

Mermaid Pool Party

The heatwaves this summer have been pretty intense. But if you look at your rosé glass half full, heatwaves are the perfect excuse to host/organize/attend a pool party. You know when it's so hot and humid that you tell yourself, "Man, I could just jump in a pool right now"? Well, I figured why not …

Fiesta Decor for Taco Nights

Apparently, a game night soirée was long overdue as our friends kindly reminded us (ahem, requested). The last game night we hosted was simple and cozy: I made homemade lasagna, and red wine and Cards Against Humanity were enjoyed until the wee hours of the morning. This year we wanted to try out the game …

“Somebunny is One” Theme for First Birthday

Being an auntie to my friends' kids has given me carte blanche to spoil them and adore them unconditionally (and then hand them back when they're pooping and crying). My most ultimate favourite auntie role, aside from cuddles and chubby cheek smooching, is crafting and styling my friends' babies' special events. Okay, maybe I appointed …

Event Styling Ideas for a Baptism

I think it's become official. I've been assigned head of the decor committee for all of my best friend's events. She's put full confidence in me to make a party room look pretty. The latest event was for the baptism of her adorable daughter, Chloe. After the baptism ceremony, her parents were hosting a brunch …

Polaroid Themed 30th Birthday Party

Turning 30 is a big milestone in one's life. I'm not one to get caught up on age, but I am one to use it as a cause for celebration. The #tbt trend was the main inspiration for my party because I wanted to pay homage to my birth year, which, I must admit, is …

Cozy Game Night

Hosting a game night is probably one of my favourite kind of social gatherings to host. It's laid-back, cozy and it guarantees an evening full of hard-to-breathe laughs while playing old faithful games or learning new ones. These photos are from a past games night we hosted - party of 6, snacks, homemade lasagna, and …

Bridal Shower Gift Idea: Basket of Wine for Marriage Milestones

If your friend is a big wine lover and you're stuck on what to get her as a bridal shower gift, the search ends now. Why not make her a personalized wine basket for each of her marriage milestones? I made this wine basket for a good friend who recently got married and she absolutely …

Budget Friendly Oscar Night

I'm always on a budget and I always find myself hosting parties. I'm like a 2017 Pinterest-DIY version of Monica Geller. Anyone who has hosted knows that the cost of food, drinks, supplies and decor can add-up. My philosophy when it comes to food and beverages: splurge. When it comes to decor: get crafty. That …
