#KEWEBirthdayBash: Kewe Clothing Turns 1

Last week one of my favourite local kid's clothing brands turned 1, and to celebrate founder/ lady boss Angela threw one heck of a bash. There was shopping, treats (delish coffee served up by Jack Coffee, and popcorn from The Popcorn Bar to name a few) epic swag bags, a raffle benefitting The Joy Smith Foundation, and so much more. In the invite she called it a 'Shop + Celebrate' event, and I'd say she knocked it out of the park on both counts.

In case you're not familiar, KEWE Clothing offers up locally made organic and bamboo clothing for kids that are as comfortable as they are adorable (I really wish the ombre leggings came in my size!). The fabrics are printed in small batches using water based inks so they're safe and gentle against littles' skin and eco- friendly without comprising on quality. The prints are fun and the quality of the fabric means they can handle whatever their little customers put them through.

The #KEWEBirthdayBash took place at Montrose + George General Store, with all sorts of goodies and a raffle for a gift basket loaded with items from local artisans curated by Pacific Basket Company, with a portion of the proceeds benefitting The Joy Smith Foundation, an organization dedicated to ending human trafficking (it's sadly one of the fastest growing criminal enterprises globally and a very worthy cause- kudos Angela for helping bring more attention to this great organization). There's a lot of hard work and heart that goes into running a business, and Angela makes it look easy. Congrats to Angela on all of her well- deserved success and to everyone who helped her make her celebration so special (see the end of the post for all the locals who were involved).

Sidenote: As Codi (aka Creative Wife and Joyful Worker/ co- host of the event) snapped this shot, she happened to mention potty- related activities and the look on my face is the result. Sometimes I think the candid shots are the best and I just might have to print this one. ;)

So let's take a quick sec and talk about those swag bags! They're a fun bonus from an event like this, and I appreciate the treats inside contributed by the amazing sponsors. By far one of the best bags of goodies I've been treated to, with some of my favourite local businesses like Bebe De Luxe and From the Seeds (see the full list of sponsors below). Let's just say that popcorn from The Popcorn Bar and gourmet marshmallows by Marsh & Mallow were devoured as soon as I took this photo...
