The following instructions are for one soap favour.

Step 1
Cut a strip of ribbon to 18″ and lay flat on table with the shiny side down. Place a round soap in a mini saucer and lay both of these elements in the middle of the ribbon.

Step 2
Feed both ends of the ribbon through a small clasp ring and pull it down till the ribbon is tight against the top of the soap. (Visual not shown)

Step 3
Open the lobster claw and attach the charm to the small clasp ring that is holding together the ribbon in the middle of the soap.

Step 4
Grab both ends of the ribbon and tie a bow in the middle of the soap. Trim ends off at a slant with the scissors.

Sweet Bee Tea Party

Earlier this week, I had a lovely visit with Irina of Sweet Bee Tea Party at her home studio. We both share a love for vintage china (we ‘met’ on Instagram), so it was such a treat to see all of the beautiful china pieces she rents out for tea parties and other events. She has such an amazing selection of inventory to choose from: vintage china cups and saucers, teapots, serving trays, milk and sugar sets, silverware, charger plates, centrepiece decorations and more. If you are looking for something special, Irina is such a talented lady who can create the most beautiful table for your next tea party, bridal or baby shower.

Irina has also generously made some space on her shelf to display a few examples of my mini dessert domes. We had so much fun styling it together! The mini dessert domes can be customized to match any colour scheme and rented out for a dessert table or special occasions. Please contact Irina for rates and inquiries at (416) 319-5345 or

To add a special touch, Irina also makes her own sugar cubes, including these red heart-shaped ones. They are so cute and sweet!

Inside the blue dome (see below) is a beautifully wrapped chocolate by Twinkle It. (Sorry! I wish I had captured a better photo) Each little wrapping is different and feels so special and unique. Almost too pretty to open!

Thank you Irina for a wonderful afternoon. Hopefully we can have our own little tea party one day!
