A MUST for your favourite babes!

Do you have a Baby Shower coming up, or are you welcoming any new babes into the world? Then you have to check out "Tilly & Toots" Taggy Blankets. These gorgeous one-of-a-kind blankets feature beautiful and modern cotton patterns on one side and super soft snuggly minky fabric on the other. The edges are flagged by layered tags to stimulate baby's senses. They're a perfect size to carry everywhere baby goes too!

I have the above Apple Harvest pattern for my little monkey and I love the Fruit Salad pattern too.

Happy Shopping - head to "Tilly & Toots" here.

Say "Cheese!"

Looking for a fun way to capture memories of your guests at your next special event? Photo Booth Rentals are continuing to grow in popularity and it's no surprise really...they're so much fun!

At a wedding I attended this summer, the photo booth was set up in a back corner of the room, so as not to distract from the other decor and elegance of the event. It also had a treasure chest of props for guests to wear as well when getting their pictures taken - now who can resist wigs, glasses, beaks and hats? Both young and old were having a blast in there all night (...the open bar helped people loosen up a little too I'm sure!) The best part was that the machine printed out two sets of each photo grouping so you could leave one copy with the bride and groom for their scrapbook and keep one copy for yourself.

Who doesn't love to look at pictures of themselves, honestly?! I have kept these pictures on my fridge and they still make me laugh daily!

I thought of this today as there is a Two-Hour Photo Booth Rental up for grabs on Ottawa's Living Social deals. Check it out here for all the fine print.

Not your average CHEESEcake!

I'm starting to see these talked about more and more and thought I better share the idea with those of you planning any special event this year: It's a Cheesecake!

Literally, a cake made with layers of cheese wheels!!! No, this does not have to replace a wedding cake or baby shower cake, but can complement any food table set out for guests as a cheesy twist on a cheese platter. Think about how your guests would appreciate some brie and grapes while dancing at midnight or playing games at a Stag & Doe. You can make it funky with coloured cheese such as blue, or printed rind cheese. Add ribbon, fruit or flowers to really dress it up and follow whatever theme you have planned.

Being a cheese-lover, this idea is a must on my list of haves at my next gathering...I just wish I could have a layered cheesecake in the fridge waiting for me at all times!

Beautiful Bouquets & Inspiring Decor Ideas

I couldn't resist passing this link along to you today - check out the Hot Bouquet Styles of 2012 on

This bouquet above is my absolute favourite...I just want to eat it up! The combination of textures and soft and dark colours is stunning. So I just had to check out the creative stylist and stumbled upon JL Designs. Now operating out of Orange County, California, this floral and event designer (Carissa Jones) has quite the clientele list. Check out her site for more inspiring floral arrangements as well as decor ideas for any special event.
