Weekly Round-Up, Vol. 3

Happy Monday!

Last week, we celebrated two graduations on the Petite & Sweet team and Cheryl’s birthday, complete with nachos and cocktails! It was a great opportunity to celebrate and bond as a team. Congratulations to our grads, Cindy and Cheryl!

On Thursday, we had a photo shoot at the Petite & Sweet bakery! Pictures will be up soon on our website and we can’t wait! Our friends at Now Creative Group are amazing to work with. Check out some behind-the-scenes photos:

We had a chance to check out our display at Pusateri’s. Our macarons are available in all three locations in Toronto so make sure stop by and tell them we sent you.

This week, we also held our very first macaron workshop! Between all the sugar and laughter, the girls had a lot of fun and the macarons came out great.

To book a workshop for a group (max. ten people), please call 647-348-7700 for more info.

Until next week,

Weekly Round-Up, Vol. 2

Last week was a doozy! 

We kicked off Monday with a 12 ft. long sweet table for Sloane Capital Corp. for the PCMA event held at the Exchange Tower in downtown Toronto. Our previous table for Sloane Capital Corp. was classy and sophisticated. This time, we aimed to keep it sophisticated but more modern.

With berry tarts, cake pops, macarons, and custom popcorn boxes, chocolate bars, and chocolate cigars, it was a (delicious) smash!

On Wednesday, we shot a new video for our Youtube channel, PetiteandSweetTV, that was tailored for men. Expect alcohol, desserts… and maybe even bacon!

image

Friday, we had one two events at Holt Renfrew Yorkdale. The first was the launch of a new fragrance by Jo Malone. Silk Blossom is light and refreshing, perfect for the summer months!

image

On the same day, we created a coffee table floral installation for Edie Parker, composed of peonies and garden roses. The clutches floated above the flowers to create a magical effect.

This week we also launched our partnership with Pusateri’s! We’ll share more about this very soon. Prepping to deliver to three stores can be a lot of work but with a great team, the job gets done quickly!

image

We finished the week off with a classic summertime treat. We created a lemonade stand for Oliver Peoples at Holt Renfrew Yorkdale. Who says you’re too old for lemonade stands?

Until next week,

Petite & Sweet BLOOMS at Yorkdale

image

This May, we had the pleasure of working with Holt Renfrew at Yorkdale Shopping Centre in Toronto to do a pop-up shop for Petite & Sweet BLOOMS. With Mother’s Day this month, we wanted to offer shoppers the opportunity to purchase flowers for the most fabulous woman in their life.

image

image

We kept it simple with fringed tulips, tulips, hydrangeas and pink roses. Shoppers walking by stood in awe of the fringed tulips, asking us if they were real. Although they look too good to be true, they’re real, folks!

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!

Stay sweet and have an incredible Easter!
