Weekly Round-Up, Vol. 01

Hey everyone! Welcome to the first edition of our Weekly Round-Up! 

Now that spring has (finally) sprung and summer is on its way, things are getting crazy busy around here. We have so much to do throughout the week that we think we should share them with you all!

image

This week on #macaronmondays we featured our Espresso macaron, our favourite dessert to take with coffee!

image

image

The warm weather this week really got us in the mood to celebrate Spring. We also did some Spring cleaning and made some major changes to our office set-up! Taking care of business, indeed.

image

image

An event for Telus Health this week required macarons made in their signature colours. Packing 1,350 of these macarons was no joke!

And finally, this week Holt Renfrew hosted the LuxInside exhibition at Yorkdale Shopping Centre. It was a pleasure to cater this event full of fabulous French cuisine, fashion, art, and science, all put together in a beautiful setting.

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!

Petite & Sweet TV: Rustic Outdoor Party

Our excitement for Victoria Day long weekend has got our team in the mood to throw a rustic outdoor party for this weeks’ episode. This woodland inspired party sets the perfect atmosphere to relax and have some fun with friends over the many warm weekends ahead. Keep reading below for pictures, free recipes, and tutorials that will help you recreate this beautiful look at home. Remember to check out our partner’s site, Creative Bag for all the supplies you see on our table today, and please share our video and blog with friends and family!  

image

Step One: 

As always, start off the planning process by creating yourself a mood board. This helps to guid you in the right direction as you move forward with the planning. This week found inspiration in green, neutrals, burlap and birch to create a woodland themed table. You can go to petiteandswee.ca or follow us on Pinterest for some great ideas. 

Step Two:

When I think of an outdoor party, I think comfort food. On this weeks table, we put mini jars of milk with chocolate stuffed cookies, mini cupcakes, and homemade brownies. For a special touch, we made a s’mores station to bring a little bit of youthful fun to the party. Check out our recipe for refreshing mint marshmallows below and watch the video to learn how you can create a simple s’mores station for your guests to enjoy without the campfire.

image

Step Three:

It’s a great idea to offer your guests a drink option that pairs well with the food. In our case we chose to offer a chilled hot chocolate that guests can serve themselves. Take a look at the recipe below so you can enjoy this delicious drink at home!

image

Step Four:

It’s always important to customize your sweet table. For our woodland table, we used a personalized stamp on the napkins to tie in our theme. We also wrapped wooden cutlery with a wood medallion that has our guests initials written in black permanent marker with some twine. This is a great way to make your guests feel special and eliminates the needs for place holders. A great assortment of stamps, as well as all the vessels on our table can be found online at Creative Bag!

image

Step Five:

In order to create an experience for our guests, we created a Polaroid station out of pieces of birch. Leave a Polaroid camera out for guests to snap fun pictures throughout the night and hang up for everyone to enjoy.

Step Six:

Providing your guests with a takeaway is a great way to end the night. This week we put together a “corny nut” package that includes a mix of popcorn and nuts. To make this giveaway extra special, we tied the package with a friendship bracelet made from twine. Take a look below for all the materials you’ll need to assemble this takeaway! 

 

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!

Petite & Sweet TV: A Little Bridal Inspiration

The weather is warming up and that means that wedding season is quickly approaching. There’s a lot of pressure put on the bridesmaids to throw a dazzling bridal shower for their special friend. That’s why this week on Petite & Sweet TV, we wanted to show you how planning a bridal shower doesn’t have to be as complicated as it seems. Keep reading below for pictures, recipes, and free printables that will help you recreate this beautiful look at home. Remember to check out our partner’s site, Creative Bag for all the supplies you see on our table today, and please share our video and blog with friends and family! image

Step One:

It’s crucial for the Petite & Sweet team to start the planning process by creating an inspiration board. This allows us to organize our ideas and stay on track. Remember to keep in mind a color pallet as your gathering your inspiration. We recommend choosing two to four colors. For this week, we were inspired by chalk, craft paper, and accents of yellow, green, and pink. 

image

Step Two:

Everyone loves to eat at a party. That’s why the second step is to decide what food you’d like to serve your guests. We strongly believe that you should give your guests the option of two to four bite sized treats. We’ve used lollipops, cupcakes, chocolate dipped Oreos, chocolate covered pretzels and macarons. Check out the recipe below to learn how you can easily make dipped Oreos at home! 

image

 Step Three:

Bridal showers should be fun. That’s why we’ve incorporated a delicious and unique cocktail to the mix. We chose a yummy Raspberry Popsicle Mojito that serves both as a boozy drink and a delicious snack. To make your own at home just follow the directions below!

image

 Step Four:

As always, incorporating printables on your sweet table is a great way to personalize an event. All the printables we’ve used in this episode are available to download for free below! If you would like custom printables, feel free to give us a call for a consultation.

Step Five:

We think it’s important to create an experience for your guests at your event. For this bridal shower, we’ve set up a “Sweet Advice” tree where guests can leave the bride some special messages to take away with her. We also incorporated chalk in many of the aspects on the sweet table including painting vessels with chalk paint, using chalkboard labels on the food and drinks, and placing labels on the mason jars so that guests can write their names on their glasses. Visit Creative Bag for all the chalk labels, tags, and vessels you see on this table! 

image

Step Six:

Part of this experience is creating a fun takeaway for the guests. It’s a nice way for the guests to remember what an amazing time they had long after the event has ended. Take a look below for the materials you’ll need to assemble the takeaway and watch our video for instructions!

image

Our final step is to have fun and put everything together! Remember, although today’s episode was based around a bridal shower, you can use chalk, craft paper, and most of what you see on this table for any event you’re planning!

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!
