When I hear the word soirée, I immediately think of a party I want to go to! It’s like when you see that you are invited to a soirée instead of just a regular party, that means it’s going to be so much better by title alone! Parties are my pretty much my jam. You could invite me to your puppy’s birthday party, and I would be there with a cute dress and a hostess gift without a second thought. Throwing a party or soirée myself ends up being days of Etsy shopping and Pinterest exploration.
The good news is that my party planning has been made easier with the opening of Soirée in Pickering! I frequent the Nautical Village of Pickering pretty often since we have boats on the water nearby, and while I was shopping the area a couple weeks ago I happened upon this awesome little gift and party décor shop!
Soirée has lots of unexpected gifts that are quirky and unique, and fit all kinds of occasions. The party supplies are to die for. There is specialized wrapping paper, carefully crafted present tags, and all kinds of coloured ribbon for gift wrapping. I love a good thank you card, and Soirée carries all kinds of them that I was sure I need to add to my stationary collection. One package of cards was even featured on the bulletin board Style at Home Magazine created for our home makeover. I always wondered where that card came from!
There is a section just for wedding items like cute banners, cake toppers, and all of the small detail items that you would want to set your day apart.
I think what I like most about Soirée is that the items they sell would set your party or event apart from the usual. A slice of cake is so much better on a plate that says “Eat Cake”, and a cupcake wrapped in a paris-themed wrapper is so much more impressive than one without it. Those are the details that set apart a regular party and an actual soirée! It’s the effort and the details which can really impress your guests.
It was quite difficult, but I narrowed down a few of my favourite items from the store. Trust me, it was not easy! You really need to take a look yourself.
Soirée is located at 615 Liverpool Road in Pickering, Ontario. You can email any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit their website at www.thinksoiree.com
