Meet Pimpernel & Plum Co-Creator Tara

Tell us a little about yourself

I live in Ontario with my husband, my two toddlers, and my three dogs. I love event planning, photography and creating anything with my hands. Like my older sister, Tiffany, I love chocolate and survive off of coffee.

What is your role with Pimpernel & Plum?

Together with Tiffany, I dream up and curate the different gift boxes. I do most of the hands on work of gift box assembly and delivery. I am also the photographer and take the images seen on our website and social media.

Why was Pimpernel & Plum created?

I have often had times where finding the right gift, full of useful and locally made items, hard to find. I love being able to find that special item to send to a friend or family member who is far away, to show them I'm thinking of them. Creating Pimpernel & Plum was important for me personally to fill a void in the Canadian gifting market. We strive to be personal, unique, and support our local makers.

How do you manage your work/life balance?

I'm a stay at home mom, so work for Pimpernel & Plum happens at naptime and after bed. We're also fortunate to have grandparents babysit often, to squeeze in extra work hours during the day!

What is your favourite thing to do with your kids?

My eldest daughter loves to bake! I now have an excuse to make cookies everyday. Children love to be outside, even on our cold winter days, we've been out enjoying the weather.
