Happy Holidays From JSE!

Well it looks like December has come and gone (already!), and this post is a wee late....but I wanted to wish you all a very Happy Holiday, and all the best for however you choose to celebrate!!
I hope it was spent with close friends and family- those people that matter the most, and if it wasn't it isn't too late!

The Stafford household enjoyed several days worth of family get togethers, and while it can be tiring....we feel so spoiled to be able to spend time with our family.
1 Appie night, 2 brunches, and 2 Xmas dinners later (and still one to go), we have almost made it- let the good times, and turkey roll!!

I promise to get back to blogging and posting all the pics that still need to get up here...when things wind down next week.

Until then, thanks for following & best wishes for the New Year!!

(here is my little Sammy Clause all ready for Xmas)!

Sweet regards,

Jennifer Stafford Events

Gymboree Goodies!

Little Justin is turning one- wahoo! To celebrate his mother arranged for a birthday party at the local Gymboree- here are some treats to go with the Gymboree mantra 'Play & Music'.

These cupcakes are vanilla with swiss meringue icing, and custom fondant toppers.
The mini cake is chocolate with swiss meringue icing.

And cookie lolly's for all the little party goers!
These are meant to look a bit like Gymbo himself!

Happy Birthday Justin!

Shopping Bag Birthday Cake

A birthday cake for someone not unlike a Shop-A-Holic!!
Here is a 6 layer red velvet cake with cream cheese icing- designed to look like a Holt Renfrew shopping bag- in a slightly lighter pink :)

Happy Birthday Jennifer!

Sweet Sentiments

Here is a wee cake for a super sweet customer of mine- she wanted a little cake for a special night out, honoring her mother who recently passed.
A lilac ribbon to represent all cancers, and a little yellow daffodil to top it off.

I hope it was a heart warming night, with wonderful memories to reflect on :)

A Charitable Night of Shopping (& Sampling)!

What a great night on Tuesday at Coquitlam Centre for Unwrapped - lots of food & wine to sample, as well as amazing sales on at all of the shops.
Even the beloved Trevor Linden stopped by to check it out, and sign some autographs!

On my end, I prepared cake pops, mini cupcakes, sugar cookies, shortbread, peppermint bark, choc dipped marshmallows, and whoopie pies for sampling.
Rather than go with the traditional red & green Xmas colors, I opted for silver with blue accents- I think it turned out great!

Thanks to my friends & family for their support- they are so great at showing up for me, and its great having the extra hands to pack up at the end of the night :)
My husband and I also took advantage of the photos with Santa by donation- I will be sure to post that pic when it resurfaces amongst my event supplies!

Here are some pics from the evening, compliments of Andrea of Andrea Gurniak Photography!

Unwrapped- A Charitable Night of Shopping!

Come visit me at Coquitlam Centre this Tuesday, November 23rd,
from 7-11pm!
For a night of shopping, food & wine tastings, and music!
All proceeds from the ticket sales goes to the participating charities :)

Here's some info off their event page, which you can also view here.

During this four-hour event, shoppers like yourself will take advantage of one-night-only special discounts and offers from participating retailers, get a sneak-peek at hot winter fashion trends, groove to festive tunes and seasonal entertainment, indulge in food, treats and tastings from local area restaurants and businesses, get Santa photos and gift wrapping (by donation), have a chance to win fabulous grand prizes, door prizes, gift baskets and gift certificates (over $19,000 in total prizes!), and be amazed and “surprised“ throughout the night! Unwrapped will once again be a shopper’s paradise, a fun-filled night out and, most importantly, a community gathering like no other.

You can pre-purchase your $10 tickets from the participating charities, or at the Customer Service Desk at Coquitlam Centre.
Or you can purchase them at the door the night of!

Hope to see you all there!!

Mavi Jeans Shopping Party!

To conclude their series of shopping parties across Canada, the Yaletown Mavi Jeans held their shopping party on November 4th from 6-9pm.

Their guests could take advantage of 25% OFF their entire purchase, as well as Robert Mondavi wines served up by bartenders provided by Eight6ix Network, desserts provided by yours truly, and music provided by DJ Sincerely Hana.

It was a great night of shopping, wine, desserts and music!
The swag bags were also fabulous, and I was able to grab one for myself. I totally scored with a Katy Perry Cd, iPod case, and some other goodies!

Here are some great pics from the night, provided by the lovely, and talented Andrea Gurniak Photography!
