Tropic like It’s Hot, There’s A Birthday Giveaway!

A couple weeks ago Ez and I were invited to join in and celebrate the 1st Birthday Bash for Little Sprout Creations and oh boy, was it a blast! Jen and I met a couple months ago while I was working alongside her at the Local Love in Spring Market for Beluga Baby. We really hit it off and ever since have been almost inseparable! Both having a passion for creating, small children and eating.

The morning started with Jen heading over to my house and piling Ez and I into her GIANT truck. That in itself was an adventure. We headed over to the Jubilee Collection in Abbotsford for a few key pieces that Jen had rented for the day and then arrived at the shoot location; High Street.

When we arrived at the High Street we were both starving and in need of a caffeine boost, I ran over to Starbucks with Ez to grab the goods. I ordered a full breakfast for each of us and a small one for Ez, two coffees and an iced drink. I then lifted out my wallet to pay and the barista leaned closer to me and let me know my order had been paid for in full. There was a man sitting by the window, reading a book, sipping his coffee, and he had given the barista an bottomless gift card for customers order that morning. I couldn’t believe it! People, there is still true, honest, goodness in the world, even if it is in coffee form! Ezra and I grabbed our items to go, but we didn’t leave without saying thank you, Ezra flashed her 6 pearly whites and gave the man a small wave. What an amazing, unexpected, kind way to start the morning.

While prepping, I had the opportunity to gift Jen a mini makeover for the big birthday bash, for those of you who don’t know, one of my part time jobs is M/U for bridal and special events. We were just finishing up and then thought to ourselves, Sephora is right across the walk, endless lipsticks, balms and gloss, let’s go put on something fun! We rushed over, picked out our favorite shades of pink to match our tropical vibe and headed back to the shoot!

How perfect is it that the theme Jen had chosen to celebrate her shops one year of success was tropical! Ezra and I are now veterans of the tropical lifestyle and felt right at home in this flourishing, fruity climate!

When I was trying to put together what I would wear, I was at a loss. The only tropical clothing item I had was a full blown, palm leaf dress and if I wore that, I would’ve blended in with the photo wall. I was digging away in my closet (sidenote: doesn’t it always seem like you have a million dresses that DON’T work when you’re looking for the one that does?) and then there it was, the dress I had hidden away for new years this year. It’s peach, kind of rose/blush, shiny, high-low style and perfect for a birthday bash! Ezra was easy-peasy, Jen had a couple shops come alongside her to celebrate that sent over clothing for each of the littles attending!

Ezra’s outfit details:

Hand made grey tunic from nest and co handmade

Suede and golden mocs from wildonesmocs

Flamingo headband from antlers and acorns.

We were finally ready to go! Despite the fact that when we got there Ez was rearing to go, getting in to everything, watching all the kids play as she sat immobile on the ground, then when the time came for the snack table to be photographed, guess who was asleep. You guessed correct; Ez. She had missed her morning nap and was getting cranky. I hugged her tight and snuggled her in to the Ezra Wrap and she fell fast asleep. But that didn’t stop this mama from getting’ her groove on!

Luckily there was still more fun to be had with the photo wall and extra treats! All these women had a blast with their babes. Thank you so much @littlesproutcreations for having us join in on the fun, it was an event to remember and has me thinking about Stumbling Grace’s birthday, but that won’t be until May next year! Make sure you scroll down for a list of all the shops who came out and helped make Jen’s vision come to life!
