Out and About: Tablescapes Spring DIY Workshop with Canadian Tire

The Canvas Collection Canadian Tire

 

You may have seen on my Instagram last week that I co-hosted a “Tablescapes” Spring DIY Workshop, featuring the CANVAS outdoor dining collection from Canadian Tire. I had sooo much fun that I wanted to share a little recap of the event for those of you who couldn’t attend. My co-host was the talented Tracy Platt, Canadian Tire’s resident style expert. Her and her team designed every piece of the CANVAS indoor and outdoor collection, and I must say, WOW, what an amazing job they did!

 

There are so many pieces in the CANVAS Spring Collection that I wanted, but when I finally narrowed it down, I went for a turquoise tropical theme (see my setting in the photo below). My fave pieces included the CANVAS Aloha Dessert Plates, the CANVAS Marina Dinner Plates, and the CANVAS Serving Board. Such a stunning colour combo, and perfect for Spring/Summer!

 

Outdoor Dining Table Setting Ideas

 

The “Tablescapes” Spring DIY Workshop had a great turnout! Attendees received some Al Fresco Table Setting Tips from Tracy and myself, they worked together to create some fun tablescapes of their own, and got to check out the CANVAS Collection showroom, showcasing all of the indoor and outdoor pieces from the Spring lineup.

I had such an amazing time at this event, and am so thankful that I had this opportunity. A huge thank you to Canadian Tire for partnering with me for this workshop and this blog post. My outdoor dining game has definitely been taken up a notch!

Kate Spade Mixed Lace Dress

How gorgeous is the Kate Spade lace dress above?!?! I spotted it from afar when I was shopping in the new Nordstrom at Yorkdale, and bee lined it right to the rack. I just need to be invited to an awesome event now, so I can justify purchasing this beauty!!

 

As you may have seen in my last few posts, I’ve partnered with Yorkdale shopping centre to showcase some of the fabulous stores in their new expansion. I spent some time shopping in the new wing, and was blown away by all of the gorgeous Fall pieces I tried on. After going through all of the photos I took in the fitting rooms, I decided to share my top picks from 2 stores: Nordstrom and Oak + Fort, simply because those photos turned out the best. But, I tried on so many beautiful items as stores like Maje, Uniqlo, Mackage, Canada Goose and Reiss.

 

Have any of you been to the gorgeous new expansion at Yorkdale? What is your favourite new store? What pieces are you eyeing for Fall?

Girls Night In with Palm Bay

Palm-Bay-Girls-Night-In-1

 

I was recently interviewed for a magazine article, and one of the questions I was asked was, “When are you the happiest?”. Without hesitation, I answered, “When I’m with my loved ones.” Nothing brings me more joy in life than being with my family and friends. I’ll use any excuse to get together with my friends, so when Palm Bay asked me if I wanted to host a “Girls Night In” with my girls, I yelled “Sign me up!”.

 

We’re in the middle of redecorating our condo, sans designer, so I bribed my lovely gal pals, Victoria and Gaby, with some delicious apps, sweet treats, and yummy Palm Bay, to come on over for some girl time, in exchange for their fashionable opinions on how to decorate our place (decorating posts to come to the blog soon!). Haha, obviously, I didn’t really need to bribe them, but we’ll use any excuse to get together.

 

The yummy tropical flavour of Palm Bay’s new Pomegranate Hibiscus Cocktail inspired me to add a little tropical flair to our Girls Night In. Easy-to-make appetizers, fun music, and a bring-me-back-to-my-childhood ice cream bar rounded out our memorable afternoon.
