Whimsical Garden Party

image

Do you have a little girl who yearns to escape into the extraordinary world of a fairytale? This week we’ll make these girls’ dreams come true by walking you through how simple it can be to create an enchanted garden party right in your own backyard. Guest starring Sophia, the inspiration behind Petite & Sweet, and featuring products from Creative Bag, watch us transform an ordinary space into one fit for Disney!

Before beginning the planning process, start off by creating a mood board to organize your thoughts. We were inspired by whimsical tea cups, bird cages, colourful fruit, moss, and enchanting butterflies.

On a hot summer day, light, fresh food is essential. We love offering kids some healthy options along with their sweet treats. Paying attention to details is important in executing a perfect table. To carry our theme throughout the table, we placed cherries in tea cups, grapes on skewers with tiny rosettes stacked into mini nests, and strawberries on a mini pedestal. What better way is there to serve fresh fruit? 

image

To add a quirky flair to the table, we placed mini raspberry cupcakes inside birdcages, and placed delicious shortbread cookies and cupcakes on tiered platters, available at Creative Bag

To keep things light and refreshing, we served a chilled raspberry lemonade. Every little girl wants to feel like royalty, so pour the lemonade out in tea cups to make her feel special.

We always recommend choosing one floral and using it throughout the table. To add a whimsical flare, we were inspired to use a beautiful birdcage we found at Creative Bag as a vessel for bunches of pink garden peonies.

To add a special touch, we created a backdrop filled with moss and butterflies. Check out the steps below to create your very own. 

Please subscribe to our Youtube channel and follow us on any or every social media outlet so we can let you know when our next video will be out. Visit our blog for step by step instructions on how to pull this look together and send your pictures for us to share with our followers.

We’d love to hear from you so please share your thoughts below!

Stay sweet!

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.

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!

image

image

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,

xoxo P&S.

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!
