Pursuing Pretty in Wonderland Meets Bubbles & Brews Boho Picnics
I met this beautiful and sweet lady a year ago when we worked on a project together in Calgary and I was drawn to her positive and sweet nature. Kiki lives her life in technicolor and when you follow her on Instagram, you will be drawn into her happy lighthearted beautiful imagery.
When working with new people, you never know if their nature matches their online image, but she didn’t disappoint. I was very thankful to get to know her on a personal level and was so thankful that she agreed to this crazy idea. You need to go follow her at Pursuing Pretty.

I called Kiki up and gave her a very rough idea of what I was thinking for this photoshoot for the launch of Bubbles and Brews Boho Picnics and she trusted me fully.
I tend to love big crazy over-the-top ideas, and I couldn’t think of anyone more perfect than Kiki to do this shoot with.
All that I told her was that we were going to do an Alice in Wonderland-themed shoot featuring her with Kayley Hayward Photography capturing the moments beautifully, The Costume Shoppe for all the adorable costumes and Sandhill Wines for Alice’s drink of choice.

I designed the photoshoot around my favourite childhood book “Alice in Wonderland” so that I could use all of my creative juices. We were waiting for the right day and the right moment to shoot so that we could get a magical shoot. I was fortunate that she has the most beautiful places in mind so that we could create a magical wonderland that I was looking for.
I received a call and was told; the trees were in bloom and were ready to go, so we all rushed together to make it happen and the shoot turned out to be more than I could have dreamed of. Kayley Hayward Photography captured exactly what I was looking for and more.

When creating events for people, I like to draw from magical moments and my designs are always targeted to each person. No two events have ever looked the same as no two people are alike.
I will spend hours Creating oversized flowers or spend endless hours looking for the perfect item. Each event or each client is an opportunity to create a moment that will create a forever memory for them. I love that we get to be a part of everyone’s memories. There is no better payoff than a smile and a hug of thanks.
I launched Boho luxury picnics so that I could create memories for people and bring people together after being separated by a very unwelcomed pandemic.
The one thing that I desperately missed, were the people that I loved.
“I’m late, I’m late! For a very important date! No time to say ‘hello, goodbye,’ I’m late, I’m late, I’m late!” – Lewis Carroll
I’ve learned valuable lessons over the past two years and one of the most important lessons was to spend the time with the ones that I love.
Take that time to create memories. Live in the moment and say yes to new experiences more than you say no. Life is moving quickly so curate moments, love hard and spend time with people that bring you joy.
We hope to celebrate with you at Bubbles and Brews whether it’s a mobile bar or Boho Luxury Picnic experience or anything that you want me to dream up for you.
I will make sure that it is a day or evening that you will never forget.
