We knew we wanted to do something special for Ava’s 1st birthday. First birthdays are a BIG deal to us. (See Eliana’s and Lia’s here). The first 12 months of having a baby is stressful, challenging, amazing, sad, wonderful and joyous – All rolled into one. We like taking a moment, not just to honour baby’s 1st year but also to celebrate the “new family” we’ve become. Ava shares a birth date, July 6th, with one of my favourite “sheroes”;…

The Mamma Collaborative: A Women’s day get together

Just a Mamma MAMMA COLLABORATIVE 1209 1

Last year we had the first MAMMA COLLABORATIVE get-together, an AUTUMN TEA TASTING. It was a wonderful morning spent with mamas from different walks of life yet somehow brought together through motherhood (and social media). Many friendships have grown from that morning and I knew it was something I wanted to do again. With Woman’s Day around the corner the 1st day of August was perfect. The setting: Once again our home was the best spot. Stepping into someone’s home is like…

Just a Mamma Mothers Day wish List

It’s May and with Mother’s Day right around the corner, (like just over a week away), it’s time to get those spoils for mama sorted! I know there are tons of cute DIY crafts on Pinterest and breakfast in bed is always a winner but I won’t lie, getting a special gift to unwrap is never a bad thing… Something sentimental or maybe something fabulous to remind mom how special she is and how much everyone cares. That “something” mom…

DIY Pink Party 1st Birthday Celebration

JAM Eliana turns 1 us

Back in 2013 we celebrated Eliana’s 1st birthday. It was our first time planning and hosting a kids party. I’m not sure who was more excited; Mr. Perfect or myself… Eliana honestly couldn’t care less but, we were 1st time parents that survived the 1st year! It NEEDED to be celebrated. We went for the ultimate cliché; a girly PINK PARTY! (It was the year of pink and clichés are there for a reason, right?) I planned every last detail…

3 It’s always been a favourite of mine… 13 Feb 2003 – the day I met Mr. Perfect, October 3rd – our wedding anniversary, also the amount of little ladies we currently have and 3, the age of our middle little. Isn’t 3 just the cutest? We’re past the hard work of those 1st few years and everyone survived the “terrible twos”… no more bottles, diapers, no trying to decipher the wants and needs of a 3 foot dictator. Yes, 3…

Easter, the most important holiday and the perfect time to host an intimate DIY backyard Easter Garden Party. “There is a garden in every childhood, an enchanted place where colours are brighter, the air softer and the morning more fragrant than ever again.” – Elizabeth Lawrence Our garden isn’t just a pretty setting but also the perfect way to introduce subtle elements from Jesus’s Crucifixion (not an easy holiday to explain to little ones). It was after all in the…
