We are constantly on the hunt for fun, unique party supplies and so we were totally over-the-moon when we discovered Bash Celebration Boutique! An array of party planning awesomeness that will be available to purchase in person at ReBash on Sunday May 15! Imagine the decorating possibilities for a bridal shower, baby shower, kids party....
Tell us about your business/craft.
Bash Celebration Boutique is an online shop with a curated assortment of high quality, unique and trendy party supplies and décor. Our goal is to make all your bashes beautiful! Our website, www.shopbash.ca, just launched and I couldn’t be more excited to share it with everyone!
How did you get started?
My online shop is brand spankin new! I was one of the team members let go when Target Canada unfortunately closed its doors and I was also pregnant at the time! I decided to use the time on maternity leave to really evaluate my life and my work and try to pursue my passion and goal of entrepreneurship in a field I have excitement for.
I have always loved throwing parties and decorating and I knew I wanted to open a retail shop of some kind. I felt that there was a gap in the Canadian market for upscale, charming party supplies and décor and with my husband Paul’s support, I started researching items I would want to sell and the ball started rolling from there! I want to be the one-stop shop for Canadians specifically to find their most loved & distinctive party supplies and décor.
What is one thing people may be surprised to find out about you?
That I CrossFit….kind of! I wouldn’t call myself a full out CrossFitter just yet because I don’t go as regularly as I would like but when I do go, I really enjoy the WOD’s. Paul owns and is the head coach at Brampton CrossFit so he introduced me to the community and it’s becoming like another family! I feel myself becoming physically stronger every time I go to class and I love it!
What is your personal favourite piece out of your own collection and why?
I curate every single piece in my shop so I truly love all of the items I carry. If I had to pick one though, I would pick the Lumberjack Posecard set handmade by Doris from Love Lettering. First off, the set is hilarious and so Canadiana – it’s the perfect accessory for a Canada-themed party or even a backyard bbq. Doris herself is the sweetest person and I want my shop to feature more Canadian artists like her. She is the person who actually told me about ReBash and she’ll be back this year so you can see her amazing work speak for itself!
I’m also totally crushing on the script balloons we have in stock and some gorgeous paper fans we have arriving soon! I get giddy when I see gorgeous products like these!
Who/what inspires you?
My two kids inspire me to be the best version of myself everyday and Paul definitely inspires me. He is also an entrepreneur and self-employed doing something he is very passionate about and he motivates me to follow my dreams and work hard at something I love. His support has been immeasurable. I also find other creative people so inspiring with the work and images they post to social media especially….it is truly exciting!
What can guests at ReBash expect to see from you at the event?
Guests can expect to see a fun, happy & pretty assortment of party products ranging from modern & sparkly banners, calligraphy balloons, stamped wooden cutlery, vintage & floral paper fans and colourful tissue tassels. I plan to bring most of the items featured in the online shop so we’ll also have products from Knot & Bow, gorgeous Liberty of London plates and of course, super fun confetti balloons! We’ll also have some samples of our Bash Boxes – everything you’ll need to throw a beautiful bash in one convenient box.
Well that all sounds pre-tty spectacular to us! We sure hope you can join us to meet Sylvia! Online tickets are available here!
