Brooklyn’s Petite & Posh Party Review
Brooklyn’s Petite & Posh Party Review

Brooklyn’s Petite & Posh Party Review

My daughter had an incredible 6th birthday party at Petite & Posh. I wanted to share her experience with all of you.

What is Petite & Posh?
Petite & Posh is an exclusive entertainment venue for dress up, doll & tea parties, and social gatherings in Vaughan. The facility is clean and spacious, with beautiful posh decor.

My daughter chose the 2 hour Petite Dolltique Package which invites all children to come with their “American Girl” or “Our Generation” Dolls to accompany them to the party ( any 18″ inch dolls). The venue has extra dolls for any child who forgets to bring or doesn’t own one which was a great idea to no exclude any children who don’t.

When we arrived at the venue, we were greeted by 5 nice ladies. Three of them were the Hostesses who worked on our party. The service blew me away and I literally did nothing but take pictures. It was wonderful.

IMG_4632
The Food
IMG_4669

My daughter was able to chose from eating Belgium waffles with whipped cream and sprinkles, or pizza. My daughter being a sugar lover (like her mother) chose the waffles. They went over really well with the kids. They were also given fancy little pastries and pink lemonade or water to enjoy.

For dessert, they sung happy birthday to Brooklyn. Petite & Posh supplied the cute cupcakes. The kids loved it and acted as they were at a true tea party. They was no running around our craziness. It was very elegant.

The Salon

IMG_4649

The kids then entered the most adorable little dress up salon you have ever seen. There were tons of pretty costumes, tutus, and dresses. The venue was spotless and all rooms were very clean.

Then the hostess turned on this high tech TV and the group did a dance which was video taped. The video gets sent to the birthday child’s family.

 IMG_4706

The kids were then able to explore the room and choose their own costumes. They even had costumes for little boys. My son and his friend both put on matching pirate outfits and it was adorable.

Then the staff brought out the doll clothing. The kids got to dress up their dolls. The hostesses made hair styles and bracelets for the kids and their dolls. Even the boys got their hair styled spikey with gel.

IMG_4779
The Outfit Reveal
The cutest part of this party was the fashion show. They asked all of the parents who were there to come sit at the dining table. Then they turned off the lights and put some cool flashing strobe lights on a small platform stage and turned on tween music for the kids to each come strut their stuff on the run way. The parents and the kids both loved it.
After the show, the stage turned into a top 40 dance party with the kids in their costumes.After the kid’s changed back into their clothes and the doll’s original clothes, they did a sweet little chant together, where they were then given certificates and their loot bags.
The Loot Bags
IMG_4635

The loot bags ARE included in your package. The girls got a bow, clips, and a hair band and the boys got a bow tie to take home.

Fantastic Experience
When you book a party with Petite & Posh, all you need to worry about is having coffee and snacks for the adults (if you have any parents there). If not they provide tea for a few adults that stay. Everything else is taken care of for you. You’ve got your meal, beverages, cupcakes with a candle, plenty of entertainment, loot bags and very kind Hostesses to make sure your party runs smoothly and you can hang around on the sidelines and relax. No detail was missed and while the price may look expensive it really isn’t when you consider all that is included and take into account the special offer below. The staff are very helpful, cheery and truly made the experience a great one. You know it is a good party as this was created by the Glama Gal sisters and we know anything they do is over the top amazing!

My daughter and her friends had a great time. This will be one of her most memorable days.

THINGS TO DO & NEWS FOR DECEMBER 2015
THINGS TO DO & NEWS FOR DECEMBER 2015

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I would like to wish all of you a Merry Christmas (who celebrates this holiday). 

For those of you home with the kids and want to be frugal, here are some greats ideas you can do with your kids…

**FREE DIY ACTIVITIES**
1) ALPHABET SCAVENGER HUNT:
Write the alphabet on a piece of paper. One letter per line. Have the kids run around the house or a mall and have them find an item that starts with that letter. (Ie. A=apple, B=bike, C=couch). For smaller kids who are learning their sounds, you can write the words for them.

2) CARD BOARD PLAY HOUSE:
Take a trip to No Frills and pick up some cardboard boxes. Use strong duct tape and a pair of scissors to create a play house. If your kids are older, you can also get them to take markers or paint and decorate the house.

3) HOST A MOVIE DAY:
Turn on the fire (if you have). Bust out blankets, and make some popcorn. Put on a new movie that your kids haven’t seen. Dim the lights, and you’ve got movie time!

4) CREATE A PLAY:
Get your children to put on costumes, practice, and put on a show for you. You can get older kids to make their own props.

5) OUTDOOR NATURE ART PROJECT:
Have your kids look around your backyard or a park and have them pick our leaves, stones, sticks (etc.). When you come back home, have them glue their findings to a piece of paper to create nature art.

6) TOBOGGANING:
Take out a sled, tube or even a garbage bag and head to a park with a hill. Finish the day off with some hot chocolate.

7) BUILD A SNOW MAN: 
Elsa & Anna did it and so can your family! Bundle up your children and give them a carrot for the nose and two small oranges for the eyes. Be creative!

8) VISIT A PET STORE:
Find the largest pet store near you and take the kids for a visit. They may even get a chance to pet the animals.
My kids love going to Big Al’s Aquarium right outside Vaughan Mills Mall. They have tons of fish and reptiles to see. We usually get to hold a lizard when we go.

9) VISIT A BOOK STORE:
If you can resist caving into your children’s toy requests at Indigo, you should take a trip there. You can pick out books together and read to each other.

10) MAKE YOUR OWN PLAY-DOUGH:
For some easy NON-COOK Play-dough recipes, visit: http://entertainkidsonadime.com/2014/03/26/easy-play-dough-recipes/

**CHEAP DIY ACTIVITIES**
1) COTTON BALL SNOW FALL:
Due to our NON WHITE CHRISTMAS, this may brighten your kid’s days. Buy a bag of cotton balls from the store. Dump them over your kids train table, doll house or figurines. Make it “SNOW”.

2) BAKE:
Buy some ingredients and have your kids help you bake and decorate cookies, cupcakes or a cake. I am not a good baker, so I would just buy the cake mix and the icing pre-made. I am not a Martha Stewart!!!

3) PIZZA MAKING:
Take your kids to the grocery store and buy dough, sauce, cheese and toppings. Have your kids create their own pizzas, bake them, and eat them together!

4) MAKE HOMEMADE HOLIDAY CARDS:
Go to the Dollar Store and buy coloured paper, markers and stickers. Have your kids make cards for their family and friends.

5) MAKE FROZEN INSPIRED CRAFTS:
It took me one trip to the dollar store to create these two Frozen inspired crafts. http://entertainkidsonadime.com/2014/06/02/frozen-crafts/

6) MAKE A DEEJAY DANCE PARTY:
Go to the dollar store and get glow sticks! Dress your kids in light colours. Close the blinds and the lights and activate their glow sticks. Put on their favourite songs and have them dance. This one is good when they have friends come over.

7) PUZZLE DAY:
Go to the dollar store and buy age appropriate puzzles for your kids. Have everyone sit together and work on them.

8) SNOW ART:
Buy spray bottles, and paint or food colouring from the dollar store. Fill the bottles with water and paint. Let the children colour the snow.

9) INDOOR CAMP OUT:
Put chairs together and cover them with blankets to create a tent. Make hot dogs and smores and have your kids eat them in the tent. Sing camp songs by the imaginary fire.

10) TREASURE HUNT:
Create a Map of your home and mark the spots to find. Hide small loose change around the house. Have the kids find the change (the “treasures”) and have them put the money in their piggy banks.

Bentley’s Superhero Party Review
Bentley’s Superhero Party Review

Bentley’s Superhero Party Review

I thought I would share my son Bentley’s experience with Spider-Man for his 4th birthday party.

I had the party at my house and invited 30 kids over to celebrate. Yes I am crazy. I hired Spider-Man from ‘The Hero Headquarters’ which is The brother company to ‘Ever After Entertainment’.
I decided to split the kids into two groups, because the room in my house would be crammed for all thirty kids were in there at once. I made two groups- one for girls and one for boys. I asked ‘The Hero Headquarters’ if they could do two thirty minute shows instead of a one hour show, and they happily accommodated my needs. The girls waited in my den while I set up the boys with another activity.

I heard my door bell ring and there was Spider-man. He was in character from the second he walked into my home. As he was talking to me in character, I looked behind me and didn’t see any kids. At that moment I realized this guy is good! Plus he made me laugh, which is an extra bonus.

Before the party, I went to the Dollarama and purchased paper Spider-Man masks to give to the kids. They cost me $2 for a pack of 8. The girls were waiting for Spider-Man in my family room. They were so into it. My friend’s daughter was so excited yelling, “The real Spider-Man is here!”
They played games and he read a book to the group. Then he gave each girl a Spider-Man tattoo and they loved it.
When the boys came, they were in aww of the Superhero. He did the same routine with the boys and my son happily got his tattoo.

At the end of his two sessions, we gathered all of the kids together. Spider-Man did a ceremony with Bentley in front of the group.
He presented my son with a certificate, a Spider-Man bracelet, and an adorable cape to keep. Then he left to go “fight some crime” and all of the kids said good bye.

IMG_4549

It was truly an amazing experience for Bentley. For the next few days, he was showing everyone he knew his Spider-Man tattoo and gushed about his party.

I just wanted to thank ‘The Hero Headquarters’ for creating a fun and safe party for my son and his friends.

 


HERE ARE SOME PICTURES FROM THE PARTY…

Hello Everyone!

I hope everyone had a great week! Today and Tomorrow are my two kid’s birthdays! Bentley turns 4 today and Brooklyn turns 6 tomorrow. I can’t believe my little one is now 4. He told me the other day that Thomas The Train was for babies. I was like “Wait no! You are still a baby!” I have to face the facts they are growing up.

We are now birthday partied out! I have two blog posts coming up in the new year featuring photos from Bentley’s Spiderman Birthday Party and Brooklyn’s Petite & Posh Party!

HELP THE NEVILLE-LAKE FAMILY 

The Hearing has been posted-poned yet again UNTIL THE NEW YEAR…

However, this will give us MORE TIME to get MORE SIGNATURES!

Please give your full support by clicking on the link below and sending two letters to help make a big impact on the driver Marco Muzzo’s Punishment!

1) The first letter will be sent to Brian McCallion, Crown Prosecutor urging that the accused, Marco Muzzo, be denied bail awaiting his trial on 18 charges of impaired driving and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle resulting in death, and that he receive the maximum sentencing for his crimes.

2) The second letter petitions your representatives in the House of Commons and Parliament for legislative change.

Everything in the link will prompt you what you need to do and you can add your own opinions in each letter.

**Remember to do the TWO LETTERS!
These letters are to make sure that the impaired driver Marco Muzzo gets the full sentence (in my opinion that’s not enough) for what he has done.

Please help! It takes 2 minutes of your time.
Let’s protect future families from being broken from a preventable tragedy!

CLICK HERE TO SEND THE TWO LETTERS

LOOK AT THESE BABIES below! These are someone’s children, cousins, friends, nieces and nephews, grandchildren, students, and neighbours!  Help make a change!

HELP THE NEVILLE-LAKE FAMILY 

The Hearing has been posted-poned yet again DECEMBER 10th (I am upset)!

However, this will give us MORE TIME to get MORE SIGNATURES!

Please give your full support by clicking on the link below and sending two letters to help make a big impact on the driver Marco Muzzo’s Punishment!

1) The first letter will be sent to Brian McCallion, Crown Prosecutor urging that the accused, Marco Muzzo, be denied bail awaiting his trial on 18 charges of impaired driving and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle resulting in death, and that he receive the maximum sentencing for his crimes.

2) The second letter petitions your representatives in the House of Commons and Parliament for legislative change.

Everything in the link will prompt you what you need to do and you can add your own opinions in each letter.

**Remember to do the TWO LETTERS!
These letters are to make sure that the impaired driver Marco Muzzo gets the full sentence (in my opinion that’s not enough) for what he has done.

Please help! It takes 2 minutes of your time.
Let’s protect future families from being broken from a preventable tragedy!

CLICK HERE TO SEND THE TWO LETTERS

LOOK AT THESE BABIES below! These are someone’s children, cousins, friends, nieces and nephews, grandchildren, students, and neighbours!  Help make a change!

THANK YOU FOR CARING…
