A Party for the Fellas

The men in our lives rarely get thought of when we enter party planning mood. After all, the ribbons, pastel colours, and flowers don’t exactly scream “man.” But with Father’s Day approaching we put the focus on the fellas on our newest episode on Petite & Sweet TV. This week, our wonderful partner, Creative Bag and ourselves will put all our girly instincts aside to teach you how to plan an event for that special man in your life. Whether it’s for Father’s day, a birthday, anniversary, or just simply because, make him feel special with these simple tricks. 

image

We wanted to show our viewers how simple it can be to create a theme that the men would appreciate. We chose to focus on a “Business Man” theme for our first table. As always, we took our inspirations, including cigars, newspapers, suits, and oranges and created a mood board to organize our thoughts.

image

It’s a fact that all men love food, but the “Business Man” tends to enjoy the finer things in life. Keeping our tale sophisticated, we placed chocolate covered almonds in glass jars, chocolate cupcakes with orange zest buttercream topped with pistachios, and chocolate cigars on our table. Treat your guy to delicious cupcakes by following the recipe below!

This week we brought a special guest on the show, Sabrina Greer, who designed a specialty cocktail for our “Business Man.” Take a look below for a recipe to the delicious Not-So-Old-Fashioned signature cocktail with bourbon and orange zest. 

image

Whether they enjoy it or not, the business men in our lives wear suits daily and often read the paper. To add a special touch to this table, we covered our table with Newspaper printed wrapping paper. We also placed napkins folded as dress shirts on the table. To learn how you can create these original napkins at home, follow the six easy steps below.

Printables are a must on any Petite & Sweet table as they add an element of creativity. We wanted the guys to have some fun at his party, so we created some funny photo-booth props that you can download and print for free below!

When the business day is over, there are few men who wouldn’t want to unwind by watching a game on the couch. For our second table, we took cues from favourite sports like golf and baseball as well as the colours white, green, and red. 

image

This table featured delicious chocolate covered bacon, chocolate cupcakes, white chocolate caramelized ‘baseball’ macarons that we drew on with red edible marker, and cake pops. Bacon is definitely an all time favourite food, if you’d like to make chocolate covered bacon at home, just follow the recipe below. 

image

Sabrina Greer worked her magic once again to create a specialty cocktail called The Gold Medal. Made with tons of cold beer and topped with pickles and more bacon, the lucky guy in your life will definitely owe you one when you make him this satisfying drink by following the recipe below. 

imageTo customize this table, we used wooden risers from Creative Bag, and painted them green with white field lines to complete our “Sporty Dad” look.

image

Once again, for a little fun, we created a large foam finger with MVD (most valuable dad or most valuable dude) written on it. You can download the printables for free below!

Happy Easter!

You’ve asked and we’ve listened! Owner and host of  Petite and Sweet TV, Elle Daftarian has partnered with Creative Bag to walk you through her process of designing Petite & Sweet signature dessert tables! Once you’ve seen the episode, visit us here for free recipes and printables that we’ll be posting to make it a little easier for  you to create your very own tables. 

With Easter just around the corner, we’ve decided to throw an Easter party!  

image

This may seem like a lot, but putting together a sweet table doesn’t have to be time consuming or stressful. Take a look below for Elle Daftarian’s easy six-step guide on how you can easily recreate this look! 

Step One: 

To simplify the process, always start by creating an inspiration board to guide yourself and keep the planning on track. Check out the one we created for our Easter Sweet table below! Remember to keep in mind a color pallet as you’re gathering your images. We recommend choosing two to four colors.

image

Step Two:  

This is the time to figure out the food you’d like to have on your table. We strongly believe that you should give your guests the option of two to four bite sized treats. We’ve used cakepops, coconut egg nest cupcakes, marshmallows, and candy in our pastel color pallet. Check out the recipe for our delicious coconut egg nest cupcakes with chocolate buttercream below!  

 image

Step Three:

The third step is to figure out a drink option to offer your guests. Keeping our color pallet in mind, we’ve chosen a pink lemonade for our festive Easter table. 

image

Step Four:  

We believe that a great way to customize your table is to create pintables. Our talented graphics team has created some fun pintables for you to use or your own Easter tables including some fun photo booth props. Check out the link and have some fun!

Step Five:

Our favorite part of this process is putting together all the pieces to bring the table to life. In order to do that, you’re going to need to gather objects that you can use for vessels and tie in all those beautiful colors by using ribbons, flowers, risers and décor. We’re lucky enough to have Creative Bag  as our partner! Take a look at their website for everything you see on our table today, and a whole lot more! 

image

Step Six:

Our final step is to have fun and put everything together!

Weekly Recap: Fashion, Food and Festivity

We’ve just had another busy week and there are lots of pictures to share.

Petite and Sweet started the week off catering a product launch for SkinCeuticals held at Album Studio Rentals.

We then participated in the 9th annual What’s On The Table, featuring Toronto’s most innovative restaurants and the best Niagara wines, with proceeds going to The Stop Community Food Centre’s critical anti-hunger programs. Martha Stewart enjoyed our menu so much at The Delicious Food Show we decided to treat all the foodies at What’s On The Table to the same delicious treats, including chocolate chai with madagascar vanilla roasted marshmallows, a variety of macaroons including our one-of-a-kind tea macaroons with Plucked Teas Spadina and Kensington tea blends, open faced cookie bombs - a Petite & Sweet custom dessert, and cake sandwiches. We even roasted the marshmallows on sight for our guests. Yumm! 

Guests got to meet Lynn Crawford, Jamie Oliver, and Carl Heinrich and sample delicious food from restaurants like Parts and Labour and Porzia

Over the weekend, Holt Renfrew hosted an amazing afternoon of music, shopping, sampling and art. Fans of Rebecca Minkoff got the chance to get their purses custom monogramed and nibble on our vanilla mini cupcakes, caramelized white chocolate macaroons and white chocolate truffles. We were so pleased to be part of such a great event!

 The cutest event of the week was Baby Lucas’ Burberry inspired Christening sweet table. He celebrated in style with trendy burberry popcorn boxes, chocolate bars and yummy cake pops.

Our Crazy Week in Review

Petite and Sweet just went through quite an eventful week and we are very excited to share the details!

Petite and Sweet was asked to design a cake for our favourite Canadian artist, Drake, for his 27th birthday held at Blowfish Restaurant this past Wednesday in Toronto. Well that’s no pressure!! After a lot of thinking, we decided to keep the cake classy and simple. For a man who has everything and sees everything, sometimes less is more. 

Take a look at the before and after shot of Drake’s birthday cake. Happy birthday Drake! We wonder what you wished for. ;)

On the same day we catered for BVtea, presenting fashions and bling from the merchant of Bayview Village. The proceeds of this event went to The Gerry & Nancy Pencer Brain Tumor Centre at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre. We’d like to give a special thank you to Stacey and Cele from Lounge Furniture Rentals for making us a part of such a beautiful event! 

If that wasn’t exciting enough, we then put together a breakfast for the queen of lifestyle herself, Martha Stewart at The Delicious Food Show!  She was so impressed with all our delicious treats that she asked our very own, Elle Daftarian, to help cut the amazing cake we designed especially for her. Take a look at how we brought the breakfast and our booth at the Delicious Food Show to life from start to finish below!

 Our girls putting together the booth. 

We shared our booth with Pluck Teas, our favourite tea brand! The favourite treat of the weekend was the lychee jasmine macaron, designed with Pluck Teas Spadina blend. 

A before and after of the front entrance installation. 

Take a look at the breakfast we put together for Martha Stewart!

And finally, here’s Alex with the talented Chuck Hughes! We’re sure this was must have made her day!

Stay Sweet!

Eligible Magazine presents: Toronto’s Most Eligible Bachelor/Bachelorette Auction for SickKids

Last week, at a sexy & sweet pre-Valentines event to benefit Sick Kids Hospital, the Petite & Sweet team took part in Eligible Magazine’s Bachelor/Bachelorette auction, held at Arcadian Court & hosted by Bachelor Canada winner Brad Smith & his lovely fiancée, Bianka Kamber.

Catered by Oliver & `Bonacini , the night featured some of the most eligible single men and women Toronto has to offer, and also, some of the city’s tastiest gourmet treats!

As the exclusive dessert sponsor of this stylish event, we knew we had to make something memorable, so we created this one-of-a-kind custom sweet table to showcase what we offer, designed entirely in foamcore to replicate our very own Rosedale boutique. We kept the backdrop simple in our signature black & white so that the desserts and the amazing peacock floral installation (all done in eye-pleasing shades of deep purple, lavender and lilac) could stand out and shine before all the event’s guests.

A big thank you to everyone involved, for the night was a gorgeous success!

Porsche Design Twin Bag Launch - Toronto

Porsche Design Toronto recently unveiled the Luxury Brand’s First-Ever Women’s Handbag The TWIN BAG at an Exclusive Media Preview Party. Who did Porsche come to when they needed a replica of the Twin Bag turned into a delicous sweet treat?! You’r very own Petite & Sweet of course!

Valentine’s Day - LOVE IS SWEET LOVE IS MESSY

It`s almost that time of year again, as the first big holiday of the New Year draws upon us and February 14th quickly approaches, were once again surrounded by reclaimed images associated with this amorous day know as Valentin’es Day.  

For years, we have seen this holiday splattered with images of cupid, roses, romantic dinners, and most of all L.O.V.E - you know, that perfect love that everyone is searching for - the one that gives you butterflies in your tummy and makes you do crazy things. 

Well here at Petite & Sweet, we decided to be a little more realistic in our interpretation of Valentine`s Day. 

We decided to let out the messy part of LOVE by splattering red chocolate on our angelic white sweet table. Dressed with fluffy white cakes, delectable French macarons, mouth-watering cupcakes and gorgeous sugar cookies - just to name a few

You know the kind of love that`s not always perfect, Yes friends, LOVE is very sweet but also messy at times. Don`t you agree?

So no matter where your love stands this year, you can always be sure to add a little sugar with Petite & Sweet. 

To order your custom French macarons, cupcakes, flowers, or custom Valentine’s Day gift trays please call 647.348.7700 or email info@petiteandsweet.ca
