We are back in the shoppe and in full swing – ready to start the New Year!  We had a wonderful, restful holiday; it was the perfect ending to a blessed year.  And, just like that, it’s almost Valentine’s Day!  I know, I know, it’s still a month away.  But believe me, it will sneak up on you SO fast.  I’m speaking from experience… because it happens to us EVERY year!

Flowers, tea, chocolate, perfume, lotion… our shoppe is made for Valentine’s Day!  This is pretty much the Petal & Kettle holiday.  So, if you are in need of a gift for ‘her’ — which, everybody should be (all women love to be loved, you know!) — we’ve got the goods.


Check out our website to view our lovely collection of gifts.   And if you don’t find what you are looking for, give us a call at 250-248-3186.  We just might be able to make it happen.  (We also ship!  So, if you don’t live in Parksville/Nanaimo area, don’t fret… we’ve got it covered.)

Love, the girls at Petal & Kettle  xoxoxo

We love Fall around here.

Cozy sweaters, flowers still in bloom, good books, stoking the fire — ahhh, Autumn.  There’s just so much to like!  Add a cup of hot tea to that list and we just can’t think of anything that would be better.

Petal & Kettle has a huge selection of sustainable harvest, loose leaf teas for you to choose from.  Come in and see our stock, or check us out online at  Happy sipping!

Did you know, 92% of women remember the last time they received flowers and 89% say it makes them happy?Nature___Flowers_Red_roses_on_a_white_table_on_a_white_background_056460_

This means, it’s not only the ladies who benefit. Women remember that happy feeling long after the gift is received – putting you in her good books for weeks! And if you like the idea of that, consider a pre-ordered monthly bouquet when you place your Valentine’s order.

You don’t need to go big; it truly is the sentiment that counts. Whether your budget is $20, $50 or $100, the most important thing is that the bouquet represents emotion. Having a florist that you trust and being able to provide a couple of personality traits about the person can make all the difference. Is she bright and cheery; soft and romantic; or maybe even a little on the wild side? A good florist can emulate this through flowers – really!

My last piece of advice to undoubtedly impress her this year: send flowers to her workplace on Friday (Feb 13th) and bring her breakfast in bed on Saturday morning (Feb 14th). Not only do you get to skip an early morning trip to the busy shops, but you also make a big impression with her friends & colleagues. Win-win.

Just think of all the points you will gain with a little pre-planning and a quick phone call.

As promised, here are the pictures from our photoshoot with Captured Essence Photography.

Seriously, how much fun was that!  They totally pampered us.  And the hair & makeup?  Amazing.

It truly felt like a day at the spa.




The goal at Captured Essence is to help women see how beautiful they really are.  And we think that every woman should have an experience like this.  Especially those that spend their days tending to others and rarely have time for themselves.  Yes, we mean Moms!

So that’s why we are teaming up together, in honour of Mother’s Day.

Each week leading up to May 11th (Mother’s Day), we will giveaway a bouquet with a $200 gift certificate towards a Mom & Daughter photo shoot.  OR, fellas, treat your gal to a photo shoot so she can see what a hot mama she really is!  To enter, make sure to share our Facebook posts and ‘Like’ the Captured Essence Facebook page.

We will also be giving away Captured Essence gift certificates, valued at $200 each, to the first 100 orders we receive in our shoppe for Mother’s Day.  {and no, we’re not kidding!  Make sure to get your order in soon!}
Note:  After your photo shoot, there are many different printing packages to choose from.  And payment plans are also available.  For more information, contact Brooke at Captured Essence Photography.
