iphoneography . splatter party

19 Apr


i spent saturday evening surrounded by some of my very favourite people, celebrating my upcoming birthday — because baby is due to arrive the day before i turn thirty (!), we thought it safest to get together a couple of weeks early — with splatter paint and awesome food. i’m so very thankful to have these ladies in my life, and so excited to see our group canvas all stretched and up on the wall :)


let’s party . buffalo check sledding party

27 Feb

three months ago we celebrated lila and cole’s fifth and second birthdays with a sledding birthday party. it’s probably time i shared it :)

a few of my favourite bits: the custom watercolour portraits by kate klassen, the wooden flag bunting, the photos from the kids’ birthday session (i’ll post those soon too!), the “s’mores on a stick” (so yummy!), the build your own snowman kit party favours, the almost buffalo check cake (thanks to these pans), the hot chocolate station at the hill, the awesome time everyone had sledding despite the storm that came up just as we headed outside, and being surrounded by so many of our favourite people at the same time :)

it was a really good day.

let’s party . cole turns one

24 Apr


five months ago, we had a super awesome day of friends and food and triangles and cake, and it was so great to share it with so many of our favourite people. when cole got crabby (as most one year olds do) birthday cake made everything better!

a big thank you to all of the lovely friends who picked up my camera or sent photos of the party happenings while i was busy partying :) love you all.

31 Oct


bats from 2010, mummies from 2011, glitter ball flower thingies from easter, arrows from cole’s room, and the quiver became the jetpack — this was the year of repurposing :)

also, i think i could eat those hot dog mummies every day. yum!

happy happy happy halloween!
