Thomas the Train

Choo Choo…..Who loves Thomas?

“They’re two they’re four they’re six they’re eight
Shunting trucks and hauling freight
red and green and brown and blue
they’re the really useful crew

All with different roles to play
Round Tidmouth sheds or far away,
Down the hills and round the bends
Thomas and friends

Thomas he’s the cheeky one
James is vain but lots of fun
Percy pulls the mail on time
Gordon thunders down the line
Emily really knows her stuff
Henry toots and huffs and puffs
Edward wants to help and share
Toby, well let’s say, he’s square”

Happy 2nd Birthday to Keaton who just had a Thomas the Train Birthday Party.

I attended an Edwardian Re-enactment Wedding at the Rutherford House.  It was really neat and I got a glimpse into the lives of The Rutherford’s and how they lived back in 1915.  Alexander Rutherford was the first premier of Alberta and was responsible for the creation of the University of Alberta in Edmonton.  The Rutherford’s built this house during his time as premier and was hoping it was going to be the house where all premier’s would live during their term, however he was forced to resign right before moving into the house.  This house sits on the campus of the University of Alberta.

The Front of The Rutherford House

This would be a fabulous place for small private function or cocktail party or for a small intimate wedding ceremony and small intimate wedding reception.  The beautiful front yard has lots of flowers and would be an ideal place for wedding photos.

The Garden

This Garden Space would be ideal for that outdoor wedding that you have always dreamed about

Here is a little recap on the Re-enactment Edwardian Wedding.   It was taken place on July 19, 1915 during the World War in Europe.  The Wedwell and Truhart families enjoy a brief happy  reprieve upon the upcoming nuptials of their children.  The younger Wedwell son went missing in action overseas and was presumed dead; which he was the former fiance of the bride (Miss. Truhart).  She had consented to marry his brother to solidify the family bond, but longs for her lost Robert.  The Older Wedwell Son, Samuel was engaged to Miss Truhart’s servant.  During the ceremony right before the I Do’s, Robert comes back from War to stop the wedding.  It ends up in a double wedding ceremony and everyone lives happily ever after!

Calgary Stampede

Being born and raised in Calgary, every year I always looked forward to one major event when living there….The Calgary Stampede! Who doesn’t love mini donuts and rides? Going to the Grandstand Show and of course when you become of age the beer gardens?  Well put on your cowboy boots and hat and turn up the Country music cause the Stampede is about to get underway.

Four years ago, my husband and I got married during stampede week and it was so much fun.  Wanting more of a traditional elegant wedding, we did incorporate the stampede by kicking off the reception in cowboy hats and line dancing.  It was quite the hoot and of course later in the evening we were able to see the fireworks from our venue.  Couldn’t have been a better day.

How fun would it be to add some western flair to your wedding or even go all out and have a complete western affair.  Here are a few inspiration pictures of ways to add that western feel to your special day.

One of my favorite parts of Stampede Week was all the yummy breakfasts and BBQ’s

So get in the spirit and put on those Wranglers and Have A Ho Down for your Event!

Sunset Boat Cruise For Your Event

My husband and I were recently in Vancouver, BC for a family holiday and we were able to get away for one night to celebrate our 4th wedding anniversary without the kids.  We went on a Sunset Dinner Cruise and it was so beautiful.   Sailing on the Ocean and enjoying the scenery with a great buffet dinner and having a few drinks was spectacular.   Watching the sunset from the rooftop was so romantic.  I thought that this would be the best location for any small function, whether it be a wedding, anniversary, office party or birthday.

In Edmonton, you can do the exact same thing on the Queen Elizabeth Boat, which cruises around the River Valley!

It would be fun to wear this hat for bridal party photographs or even just to party and celebrate with co-workers, friends and family! 

What’s a celebration without these goodies

I hope everyone has a fun and safe Canada Day Long Weekend.  Happy Canada Day!
