Vancouver Mom to Follow: Tanya Montalbano of Sophie’s Flower Pedals

This week’s Vancouver Mom to Follow is flower mama, Tanya Montalbano of Sophie’s Flower Pedals. Following an exciting career in travel and film and television, Tanya put it all on hold to raise her two kids – Sophie, 5 and Sebastian, 3 – spending the last few years exploring all the fun, kid friendly places Vancouver and the North Shore have to offer.

Inspired by the relaxed and supportive vibe in her local community, she launched her own company, Sophie’s Flower Pedals this year and couldn’t be happier. This unique Mobile Flower Boutique specializes in floral design for film sets and special events and has just introduced a new birthday party option for kids! You can now book Sophie’s Flower Pedals parties through the West Vancouver Community Centre (or privately) and create individual mini flower arrangements or flower crowns.

Places Tanya loves to go

Skoah Lower Lonsdale

This is my go to for an escape and place for ultimate relaxation. The owner is another local mom, and her team is the absolute BEST!

North Vancouver Shipyards

This increasingly popular waterfront location offers a constant stream of family events, especially during the summer. Checkout the Friday Night Shipyards Festival, Saturday Summer Sessions for great food options, incredible music and the best views of downtown.

Welcome Ice Cream Parlour

The Welcome Parlour in North Vancouver has the most delicious, natural, authentic Ice Cream! Afterwards, you can hit the little park across the street that has a mini putting green.

Favourite Getaways

As a family we have three place we go every year – Tofino, Half Moon Bay on the Sunshine Coast (staying at Painted Boat is the best) and San Jose del Cabo. It’s a direct flight and relatively painless with two 2 small children. My husband and I have been going for 15 years and have a family home there so as soon as walk in the door we are home again and ready to grab some fresh tacos and hit the sandy beaches.
