Crème de la Crème Spotlight: Violet Grey Creative

We adore connecting with new companies, and last year we were thrilled to meet with the fabulous ladies at Violet Grey Creative . Violet Grey Creative is a full-service invitation design and stationery shop that specializes in custom invitations and paper goods for all occasions.

Inspired by a passion for artfully curated designs, their team is dedicated to delivering one of a kind products of uncompromising quality that will set the tone for your upcoming event. At Violet Grey Creative, they believe that preserving Mother Nature is important, which is why all of their products are made from recycled materials and some are even 100% tree-free.

Earlier this year, we were thrilled to partner with Violet Grey on a baby shower for one of Jillian Harris' closest friends. They created custom drink tags, tent cards all in a too-cute-for-words lunar theme and brought in beautiful large white stars which we hung from the ceiling. Photos by Ainsley Rose.

We are also excited to announce that Violet Grey is now offering beautiful foil and embossing for your custom stationery pieces.

We invite you to browse their invitation galleries, explore their colour palates or choose from their wide array of products. You are guaranteed to feel inspired! We also welcome you to come visit them at Crème de la Crème on November 8th at the Four Seasons where you will be able to view their beautiful pieces in person!

Crème de la Crème Spotlight: Big Blue Yacht Charter

Big Blue Yacht Charters was officially launched two years ago on Valentine's Day! How romantic! Owner, Emma Murdoch, having spent 12 years in the yacht industry abroad decided to create Big Blue Yacht Charters here at home to provide clients recommendations on the private, luxury, crewed charter yachts available worldwide.

Travelling the globe to attend charter shows to view the yachts and meet the Captains and crews personally, Emma has the opportunity to get a sense of the crews' style, specialties and the amenities onboard first hand. As a complimentary client service, Big Blue Yacht Charters provides expert advice on which charter yacht would be the best match available in the clients desired charter destination and then tailors the entire experience to the clients personal preferences, culinary profiles, yacht charter itinerary, activities and interests.

Chartering a yacht is fun! exciting! adventurous and is simply an outstanding experience! Emma works with her clients to really clarify what they are looking for in their charter yacht experience and manges all the details between the yacht and the client. Welcome to the Charter Set!

Big Blue arranges access to the worlds’ private luxury crewed charter yachts and works to ensure that the clients expectations are met and exceeded onboard the yacht. Big Blue also works closely with the Captain and crew to ensure they are well prepared for their guests arrival so that the time onboard is a seamless, pleasureable experience.

Starting Big Blue Yacht Charters was a culmination of many years of yacht industry experience from owning a yacht to cruising to working worldwide onboard as chef. Emma has been to many of the world’s cruising regions and brings real world knowledge and experience to her business and will provide her clients with comprehensive information on how to best indulge in the benefits of the yacht charter lifestyle.

There simply is no experience that compares; as unique as you, each charter yacht has something magical, something special, something truly romantic to offer....slipping into the breaking dawn or sheltered beneath an awe inspiring canopy of stars sail into your dream honeymoon....
