“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 …

Framed Pressed Flowers

One thing that I've realized about myself is that I often feel the need to be surrounded by environments that ignite inspiration. If a few days go by without anything stimulating me creatively, I feel a need to seek it. Those environments can be many things; seasons, cafés, nature, old homes and even images on …

Homemade Room Spray

There was a time in my life when I was obsessed with scented candles and room sprays. Whenever Febreeze came out with a new fragrance, I was always curious to test it out  and whenever Bath & Body Works had a candle sale, I stocked up like an apocalypse was nearing us ("Warm Vanilla Sugar” was …

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 …

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 …

90 Years Loved: Handmade Gift Idea for Milestone Birthdays

I think there’s a certain aspect of romance to old family photographs. I don’t mean the old family photos at Chuck E. Cheese birthday parties in the 80s. I’m talking about those black and white photos of our maiden mothers, our newlywed grandmothers, or our handsome great uncles in some sort of distinguished uniform. It’s …

Making a Bar Sign Using Stick-On Tiles

I have acquired the nickname "Crafting Owl" because my creative ideas seem to come to me late at night. I've been known to sporadically pull out my craft box and try to create whatever my mind is visualizing at that very moment, and it always seems to happen between the hours of 10pm-1am. I can't …

Tutu Skirt for a Baby High Chair

A couple of weeks ago, I styled the First Birthday party of my best friend's baby daughter. There were many elements that I loved about this party, the birthday girl being the main one since she is a scrumptious little bunny doll that I wanted to smush every chance I got. Additionally to baby Chloe, …

“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 …

Two Easy Ways to Decorate Easter Eggs

This year for Easter, I really wanted to step up my egg game. The past two years I've kept the Easter decor to a minimal, gracing our space with only a vase of fresh tulips and a small bowl of Cadbury Mini Eggs. But let's face it, the tulips never lasted and certainly neither did …

Easy DIY Floral Letter

Floral letters are all the craze right now.  They are fun, feminine and they can be as unique as you want them to be. As part of a gift for my best friend's daughter's baptism, I wanted to make her a floral initial so she can add to her nursery. I wanted it to be …

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 …
