WELCOME to The Passionate Home's VIP Event celebrating our new location

and 5 years in business!

We had a wonderful evening of sweets, treats and fun!

Who can resist homemade mini cupcakes and cake pops?? Not me!

Thank you Susan for these yummy treats!

These cake pops were sure a hit!

My son, the official TPH greeter welcoming the Mayor of the city of Langley.

Welcome Mayor Fassbender and thank you for coming!

We enjoyed wonderful food from Mizuna Culinary!

Just look at that spread!!

Everyone goes home with a goodie bag!

Welcome Donalda!

Me and the girls, Elinor & Kindrel...oh and, Mayor Fassbender too!

Have a beverage and enjoy the evening.

Even Mrs. T came to wish us well! ( I have known this lady since I was 6 years old!) My pretty necklace was a gift from Janis of Rust & Ruffles, thank you Janis, you are amazing!

This is the man I have partnered up with to make some amazingly beautiful reclaimed cabinets for our store. Meet Duane for Out of Line Designs.

Time to cut the ribbon and officially open our new location. Everyone worked so hard during this move and I owe a huge THANK YOU to my girls Elinor & Kindrel! Thank you to everyone who helped with the move, my mom, Susan, Matt, Lolo, Max, Mike, Katie, Marjolein and Hanna.

And another HUGE hug to Teri, the Executive Director for the Downtown Langley Business Association. She has been an amazing supporter since I opened my first location 5 years ago, thank you Teri!

Time to eat, drink, shop and chat. Can you see my 1000 cranes hanging from the ceiling?

They were gifted to TPH for good luck and long life.

I think they look rather festive, what do you think?

I think I see Pamela from Lady Pamela's Cottage!

Many Passionate Home family members came out to help us celebrate and a few actual family members too! Meet my Omi and my Nana. (Nana is 100 years old but she doesn't want anyone to know, so if you see her out walking, don't tell her I told you!)

I am forever changed by the experience of opening my own business, by the people that I have met, by the stories they share, by the faith that I have had to call upon to focus on the positive and to believe in things that we do not see. By the unwavering support of my husband. By all the kind gestures, words and incredible acts of kindness I have experienced since opening TPH. For my old friends and new friends and for each of you who have shared TPH with their friends and for those who have allowed me to sell their creations in my little shop, for all this and more, I am truly grateful.
