It’s that time of year again – the decorations come out, the costumes go on and parents try and find ways to keep the sugar highs down – that’s right, Halloween has arrived! We’ve pulled together some fun crafts and activities to keep your little ghosts and goblins busy and out of the candy bowl this weekend! See below for fun ideas to keep your kids busy throughout all the festivities.
We hope you have been enjoying your spring-almost summer!
We’ve been busy prepping for warm weather events which is why we thought we’d share a quick post about how to celebrate an occasion when you’re away for the weekend up at a cottage.
Hello to all our Little Party-Goers readers! We hope everyone’s week is going well and that everyone had a great Family Day with their loved ones on Monday.
We’ve been trying our best to handle this bitter cold weather we’ve been getting in Toronto, and lately have been looking for places to keep busy and stay warm with our little ones, and we think we’re in luck! Enter, The Clay Room! This shop is a paint-your-own-ceramics place where people of all ages and abilities are welcome. They have a variety of over 300 white ceramic pieces and 60 paint colours to choose from, and all of their paints are dinnerware safe and non-toxic – perfect for kids!
If you’ve ever wanted to create a unique personalized ceramic piece but didn’t want to attend a long, structured pottery class, then The Clay Room is for you.
Read on to our Q & A to learn more about this super fun spot where you can spend a creative afternoon out of the cold!
This week we’re throwing it back to last year when we did a Fox and the Hare themed photo shoot with Alex Albojer of LifeImages and Tayna List of Tanya List Design and Floral. The models in these photos are Alex’s adorable children and the cake featured was by Lori Hutchinson of The Caketress. The photo shoot would have not been complete without candy…a whole lot of it from LOL Candy . There were also several different talented event professionals that we worked with to put this shoot together, all of whom are listed here. Part of the photo shoot was also featured on Wedluxe’s blog last fall which you can check out: http://wedluxe.com/petitefete/.
This week our Goodie Spotlight is focusing on the lovely and absolutely charming flower/antique shop, Coriander Girl. Opened in 2009 and owned by new mama Alison Westlake, this little shop is definitely on our #inspiration radar.
At LPG we love all things creative and visual, and that’s why we are so excited to be featuring this sweet little Parkdale gem. The shop has been featured in numerous Canadian publications such as House & Home, Chatelaine, Flare and Toronto Life – just to name a few! From weddings and parties to “I’m sorry” bouquets, this shop has something for every occasion. Not to mention locally sourced crafts and antiques!

Sweets and design, we absolutely love this month’s theme and we’re even more excited to have SweetEnsemble as our featured Goodie Spotlight! Founders of SweetEnsemble: Panos Katsigiannis, Chryssa Katsigiannis and Demetra Andreou definitely understand the importance of creating an event without leaving any details…or sweets. They are passionate about what they do and by simply looking at the images that they generously provided us below you’ll see why.
