Bring on the Geometric!

 

 

As an Event Core member, The Sugar Cube is exposed to seeing all the newest themes and trends when it comes to the wedding and event scene. 

Event Core YYC is a one-stop-shop for all your wedding and event needs in YYC! It is a group of talented, credible vendors that have come together to create a space full of wedding and event inspiration. Our vendors have a place to call home, and our brides and event planners can walk into our doors and find everything they need - under one roof! It’s truly a win-win situation and The Sugar Cube is a proud member.

 

 

Recently, we took part of a styled shoot that was put together by mostly Event Core members (and boy- are they talented). These photos are from that day, where so many of us came together to create – magic!

 

One of the themes taken at this shoot was – Geometric! We love this theme for 2017 weddings. The Geometric theme was placed subtly throughout the décor. The Geometric theme brings a modern feel to your event, and offers clean lines and a subtle contemporary vibe to your wedding or event.

 

The geometric shapes were seen throughout the styled shoot. In the ceremony they were placed within the small floral terrariums (thank you Creative Edge Flowers)  - and geometric lanterns placed down the aisle.

At the reception they were seen at each of the tables with elegant, clean centrepieces – and at the cake and dessert table.  

You can add the geometric theme in so many aspects of your wedding. But remember – subtlety is KEY when adding this touch to your wedding or event!

How to incorporate Candy into your Valentine's Day Plans

 

 

No matter what you have planned for this Valentine’s Day, there is always room for CANDY! This is the holiday where everything gets that much sweeter!

No matter what you decide to do to celebrate this wonderful time of year (or who you decide to celebrate with), there is always room to add some delicious, sweet candy into the mix! 

Here are our top 5 suggestions on how to incorporate CANDY into your Valentine’s Day plans:

 

Candy & Games

Whether you decide to spend Valentine’s with your girlfriends, or significant other, or both - staying in and playing games is ALWAYS a good idea. Bring out some classic board games, and enjoy spending some time with the ones you love!  

The best addition to a games night? A Gigantic CandyGram Cube!

 

Candy & Road Trip  

We live so close to the STUNNING Rocky Mountains! Take advantage of this, and plan a road trip this Valentine’s Day! There is nothing more romantic than taking in the breath-taking views with a partner.

To take your road trip to the next level, order a CandyGram Bag to snack on!

 

 

Candy & Girl Time

Spend time with the girls this Valentine’s day! Grab a chick flick, some snacks and a yummy cocktail to celebrate this holiday. Sometimes, all you need is your girls to make your night SWEET!

Grab several of our Baby CandyGrams to hand out to your girls! 

 

Candy & Dinner

Take your significant other out for a classic Valentine’s date night! An amazing dinner might be the best way to celebrate. Try a new restaurant and order the best on the menu!

Want to make an impression? Grab one of our Flowers & Candy Combinations to take your date to the next level.

 

 

Candy & Wine 

Decide to stay in this Valentine’s Day? Perfect! With the cold weather we are having outside, sometimes staying indoors can be the best solution for your Valentine’s Day plans! Just remember - stock up on the wine at home!

Also - stock up on CANDY! Order one of our Valentine's Day baskets and get a wide selection of Valentine's Candy to pair with your wine!

Tips to keep your kids safe this Halloween!

 

‘Tis the most wonderful time of the year - for The Sugar Cube that is! Halloween is a holiday where you get as much candy as you can possibly get in one night. Obviously, there isn’t any other holiday that can top this extreme sugar-rush filled evening.

On Halloween, there are a lot of little ones running around the streets of YYC filling up their buckets. We want this to be the SWEETEST evening ever, as well as the safest. With all the business that comes with this holiday, there are a few precautions to keep everyone safe while indulging in everything Halloween has to offer!

 

Keep Costume’s Safe: Stick with fitted clothing that isn’t too long or get’s in the way of walking. You don’t want any trips or bad falls to happen! Also, stay clear of masks that can blur your child’s vision when on the road.

 

Stick to the familiar: Try to stay within your neighborhood or a community that is familiar to your children. That way if you get separated, they won’t be unaware of their surroundings.

 

Travel in packs: Your kid’s may be old enough to go out on their own, but get them to bring a buddy. Not only does this make the experience of Halloween better, but it also keeps tabs on everyone who is out and about that evening.

 

Walk, don’t run: Make sure you tell your kids to WALK and not run around your neighborhood. Although drivers should be extra cautious this evening, they may not see your child expectantly dart across the road. Tell your kids to make eye contact with drivers to make sure they are aware children are crossing.

 

Look both ways: Remember to look BOTH ways when crossing any street! Practice this a few times with your little ones before heading out on your journey.
