This unique favour was created for a wonderful client of ours that was using a lavender colour theme for her wedding. The heart shaped pouched looked like a little basket filled with chocolates and candy. We accented it with silk ribbons and flowers to give it that special touch.

Our New Logo & Other News

For the last little while, we have been working with OneUp Design Inc on creating a new logo that would reflect our company's brand and image.

Our new logo is fun, trendy and adorable! Take a look and let us know what you think.

On another note... due to the fast growing pace of our baby and wedding gifts line, we have decided to discontinue our gourmet and spa gift baskets. We want to focus our full and undivided attention on our baby diaper cakes and gift baskets along with our wedding and party favour products.

We are still designing custom gourmet, spa and other occasion gift baskets for our existing loyal clientele. If you'd like to order a custom gift basket for a particular occasion, just give us a shout and we'll be happy to help you out.

Lastly, our blog will also be going through some changes over the next couple of weeks. The content change will include posts on wedding reception and wedding showers ideas. We thought of creating a separate blog for our wedding line but between managing the business and our existing blog, it didn't seem like a feasible idea at this time. We are also excited about making changes to our blog layout which you will get to see in the following weeks.

That's all for now...Hope you had a wonderful weekend and are rejuvenated to take on the new week!

Candy Bouquet Centre pieces

Candy or chocolate bouquets make delicious centre pieces for baby showers or even kids birthday parties. We design ours to look like real bouquets in actual flower pots. The Baby Bliss pictured above has a combination of milk chocolates and hard candy. It accented with baby sock petals, flowers and leaves. We even included an adorable plush toy for the little bundle of joy.

We have also custom designed Candy Bouquets to be sent to moms-to-be at the hospital as a delectable treat and at home when she is prescribed bed rest. Add-on a sibling gift to make it extra special and the whole family will enjoy the candy bouquet!

Choosing Your Baby Shower Theme

When planning a Baby Shower, one of the first things you need to do is pick a theme. This is not only a fun and exciting part of the planning process, but also a very important decision to make. There are many factors you should consider when making this decision and take advice from mom-to-be if it’s not a surprise shower.

If you know the sex of the baby then it makes things a little easier. You could go with the traditional blue for boy and pink for girl theme. However, this pick doesn’t need to be at all redundant. Work with trendy shades of pinks and blues instead of the traditional baby blue/baby pink. Try to use contrasting colors to add a creative flare such as tiffany blue and white or hot pink with hues of orange and yellow.

Its crucial to keep the mom-to-be’s personality, style and preferences in mind. You want the chief guest to be awed and delighted as she enters her baby shower. If she is into simple pleasures, try a shapes theme. You could design your decorations with different shapes and colours. For example, choose a few shapes such as square, circle, triangle and rectangle. Incorporate them by mix and matching square and round plates, rectangular food platters and triangular table centerpieces. You can get creative and craft your own decorations which will be fun and inexpensive.

If mom-to-be likes glitz and glamour, try a Hollywood/movie themed baby shower. Complete with bling and charm, this baby shower theme is tonnes of fun and easy to plan. Start with choosing an invitation that would go with the theme such as star shape card or movie theatre stubs. Use stick-on rhinestones to decorate plate settings, favours and centerpieces. To make it even more fun, you can have a short movie of interviews with grandparents, family members and friends sharing their special thoughts with the parents-to-be. End it with a slide show of the parents’ childhood to adulthood milestones. Make your own movie booklet with casting, movie synopsis and credits. Roll out the red carpet and enjoy a premier featuring the guest of honour(s) and their adventures that lead up to the upcoming birth of the little star.
