Countdown to our NOT another TIFF Party Fundraiser

DAY #9 - Eeeeeeep!!!! I can't believe we're passed the halfway point! Now seems like the perfect time to talk about a SUPER IMPORTANT aspect of any party... TREATS!

FIRST and foremost, I must mention the absolutely fabulous, insanely talented Marlene Matos-Jones who I also like to refer to as J.Lo (cuz, hello?!)

Marlene and I met about 5 years ago doing promo work (as every working, Canadian, actress does at some point in her career) and I instantly felt like I found a soul sister! I'm not sure how we didn't get fired from every single job that we worked on together, because there was never a moment when we weren't splitting a gut laughing! 

Fast forward to my bridal shower (and then wedding) where not only was Marlene standing up as one of my bridesmaids, but she also managed to make the most gorgeous favours and sweet table cookies I had ever seen. I'm talking like 100's and 100's and 100's of them.

When I didn't think that any one person could be more naturally talented, I find out that she is also an incredible face painter... um, did I mention, she sings, she acts, she is a product specialist for GM, she bakes gorgeous cookies and she's wonder woman on her night's off? 

You can see some of her face painting here and you can hire her here!

SO, back to the point! In addition to cupcakes (made by me) and a candy table, Marlene will be making custom cookies for our event!

The custom event cookies won't be revealed until the big night, but here is just a taste of what she's got in store. 

Is your mouth watering yet???
