SSP in the Community Presents: Hosanna Industries Enchanted Tea Party

I recently had the honor of photographing Hosanna Industries Annual Enchanted Tea Party, held at the Gibsonia campus of Hosanna Industries, located on Dickey Road.

For those of you who may not know, Hosanna Industries is a “faith-rooted, non-profit mission whose work involves a variety of charitable initiatives aimed at helping [their] impoverished neighbors.”

Founded in 1990, their program activities include leading volunteers in home repair and construction, providing vocational training for unskilled workers and even getting relief workers to areas of disaster and poverty.  They rely 100% on donations to provide these services and the contributions from this annual event go toward supporting these vital programs.

The morning of the Tea was cool and cloudy, but the warm spring sunshine showed up with ideal timing and the event turned out beautifully.  Attendees included a gathering of generations, with mothers, daughters, grandmothers, and even great grandmothers.  I was lucky enough to have my own mum and daughter attend this very special, annual Mother’s Day event.

All of the guests showed up dressed in their “Sunday best” and with lots of spirit and enthusiasm. The generations came together and enjoyed shopping with local vendors, including D.C. Scraps, ThirtyOne, Perfectly Posh, and even a Style Truck!   The laughter and joyous chatter were backed up by the sweet melody of strings performed in the main hall.

The guests gathered at their tables attired with china provided by Pippa’s Pieces, to enjoy light refreshments provided by the Johnston Tea House.  They enjoyed a variety of hot teas as they were served dainty finger foods, including cucumber sandwiches, quiche, chicken salad and artichoke hour d’ouvers.

EVENT_HosannaIndustries_EnchantedTeaParty_20170513_022_Stomped.jpgOf course, no Pittsburgh event would be complete without a cookie table, and this was no exception!  Along with the cold creamy sweetness provided by Wexford’s own Graeter’s Ice Cream, Cookiedoodles put out a display of dazzling pastel cookies and treats that were almost too pretty to eat! (Almost…)

 

After lunch, I gathered up the young ladies and some of my Fairytale Foto’s props for dress up.  We laughed and carried on together as I captured the smiles and giggles on camera.LIGHT #low light,Light #Ambient,Light #Natural Light,WHAT #Charity,WHAT #EnchantedTeaParty,WHAT #Luncheon,WHAT #event,WHAT #fundraiser,WHERE #DickyRoad,WHERE #HosannaIndustries,WHERE #gibsonia,WHERE #indoors,WHERE #outdoors,WHY #Fundraiser,WHY #MothersDay,Who #AmandaBecker,Who #HosannaIndustries,Who #daughters,Who #girls,Who #mothers,Who #women,weather #cloudy,weather #windy,when #Afternoon,when #MothersDay,when #Spring,The afternoon wrapped up with a chinese auction, complete with splendidly wrapped baskets donated by local businesses and vendors.

Hope you enjoy the photos!!

Featured Local Business • Cookie Cutters Haircuts for Kids​


Let’s give a friendly Pittsburgh welcome to Cookie Cutters Haircuts for Kids, located in charming Cranberry Township! They are pretty new to the area and I’m thrilled to feature them as my first local business blog post!

America,North America,Pennsylvania,U.S.,US,USA,United States,United States of America,

This branch of Cookie Cutters opened this past spring, and their number 1 goal is is to provide families with an amazing haircut experience. From the slide and playset in the waiting area to the TVs at each chair, video games to play, and the super fun chairs on the cutting floor- their expert staff is waiting to provide your child with a one of a kind experience.


America,North America,Pennsylvania,U.S.,US,USA,United States,United States of America,

One of the many things that really stand out is the staff, who are accustomed to working with children. They really go above and beyond to provide a caring environment where both the child and the parent are at ease. These stylists are not only skilled but also experienced in cutting hair for children of all ages, and provide that extra special touch for those with special needs.   

America,North America,Pennsylvania,U.S.,US,USA,United States,United States of America,There are lots of moms out there who know that not every child likes to get their haircut- but the staff is aware of this struggle, and they truly do all they can to make the experience one that the kids will not only not fear, but be excited to have again.

I had the pleasure of meeting with Traci Hockenberry, who, along with her husband Greg, are the proud owners of this franchise of Cookie Cutters Haircuts for Kids- the very first location in Pennsylvania, in fact!  In response to my inquiry on what she loves most about her business, she smiled and said:

 “I absolutely love it when a parent tells us that their kid HATES to get [their] haircut and then the child sits still and receives a great haircut — to see the look of awe on the parents face makes it all worth it!”  

She was such a delight as she showed me around the new salon, with all of it’s fun, unique features.  I was genuinely impressed with the whole set-up and I’ve already begun recommending their services to others! 

America,North America,Pennsylvania,U.S.,US,USA,United States,United States of America,
I especially liked the fire truck hair station, which allows kids to lay flat while getting shampooed- eliminating the uncomfortable cold sink against their necks, that we’ve all experienced at least once!

   Speaking of hair- They also offer a full line of hair care products. with quality brands, such as Fairy Tales and Circle of Friends, these brands are formulated especially for kids and come in a variety of yummy scents such as blueberry, mango, vanilla, and pineapple.

America,North America,Pennsylvania,U.S.,US,USA,United States,United States of America,
If you have a little girl with longer hair- I definitely recommended one of the detangling brushes! I can’t imagine life without it!

Traci and Greg are from Wexford and decided on Cranberry for their location because they wanted their business to be close to their home, where they live and where their kids are growing up.  They love Cookie Cutters because it’s not just a haircut – it’s an experience!  Kids get to play on a playset, they get to sit in fun chairs and watch TV as they get their haircut.

 

 

America,North America,Pennsylvania,U.S.,US,USA,United States,United States of America,
There is even Xbox for the older kids (and adults!)!

To make the experience complete, each child gets to leave with a brightly colored balloon and a  lollipop!  I asked Traci if she could share any suggestions for potential clients.  She said that they do recommend making an appointment (which you can do on the website or by calling in).  This is so that you can get right in without a wait, especially if your child is always “on the go”!  (Though the brightly colored play set in the waiting area is sure to keep any kids attention!)  She also suggests that if you think your child will have a hard time adjusting, to arrive a few minutes early so they can get used to store. Cookie Cutters Haircuts for Kids is currently running a few specials- plus you can sign up right on the website for even more great local deals- some highlights include:

FAMILY DAY
Save when you bring in three or more children during the same visit. Pay regular price for the first haircut and enjoy special savings on each additional.

PACKAGE SPECIALS
Purchase prepaid KidsCuts at a special rate. Use them on one child or share with all the kids in the family!

LOYALTY PROGRAM
Earn points each time you visit and redeem them on future services or retail products.

Be sure to check them out, soon!  They are located right on 19 in the plaza with Monte Cello’s, Rotton Apples, and my personal weakness, Peace, Love and Little Donuts- (Think of all you can accomplish in one stop!)  😉
