grand opening! sweet woodruff at le dolci


We are so thrilled to officially announce our NEW partnership with Le Dolci, a Toronto Bakery located right across the street from Trinity Bellwoods Park! 

And we couldn't be more excited to share the news about our new Flower Shop & Bakery opening this weekend, Saturday September 6th & 7th. Becasue really, what's sweeter than being able to get cupcakes and fresh blooms under one roof!??

Our new Satellite Flower Shop is located at 1006 Dundas Street West (just a couple blocks down the street from our original shop). This new satellite location will become our primary site to serve all of you, our lovely retail customers, while our 889 Dundas location will become our new Wedding & Event Studio. 

We hope you'll be able to join us this weekend to celebrate our new collaboration and pretty new shop... oh and eat some cake too!

spring | when he found her


Sigh. This shoot. One of my favs. So happy to see it up on Style Me Pretty today.

When selecting a location to shoot, we immediately thought of Ruthven Park, with its neoclassical architecture and stunning property. We loved the romantic feel of this grand country estate situated on the edge of Grand River, nestled in between acres of lush meadows and active farm fields.

Our shoot was inspired by our northern spring, and the cool, fresh days we experience here in Ontario, when the snow finally starts to melt away and gives way to early spring buds.  We chose our colour palette to capture the cool crispness of the season, using soft muted greens, clean whites and the faintest icy teal blue.

In keeping with the old estate setting, we created garden-inspired arrangements and a bouquet made up of full white garden roses, peonies, sweet peas, anemones, spirea and geranium.

Our rustic, but elegant tablescape was achieved by layering natural wood elements, terra cotta and faint teal dinnerware with a personalized hand-drawn monogram. To bring our vision to life, we set the scene on a beautiful sunny day and Reid managed to capture it all in just the perfect spring light.
