We love unicorns + we love cake - so we knew it was time to marry the two and bring this Unicorn Cake Workshop to life. Our first workshop for the year as the Unicorn Cake Workshop was simply an enchanting coincidence. The turnout and feedback from this unique event was amazing...so amazing, in fact, that we will be doing a second, nearly identical, workshop next month. Guests learned how to create their very own magical, edible, unicorn from start to finish. They used high quality fondant, glitter, metallics, sprinkles and freshly whipped buttercream while sipping on mimosas through rainbow straws. Each cake had its own unique, unicorn twist making them all extremely adorable.
Last but not least, we held a candle making workshop to end the year on a light note. Creating the scents and lighting the candles kept Place on Parry warm and cozy. It was an intimate evening together with such lovely people.
Free from the holiday stress, it was a therapeutic and relaxing night in at the space.
As always, it was a pleasure having Jenna from Paper and Posies. Her elegant creations brought even more beauty to our special night.
This dinner series in our new event + studio space, also known as Place on Parry, has been such a special and unique experience so far. Three Twelve Co. owner, Lauren Lee, collaborated with the lovely ladies behind We The Birds (who also share the space at POP) to feature local chef Christian Koelling. All involved parties have either grown up in, lived in, or are just generally in love with Asia as a whole and so this was a marriage of our mutual connections to such a beautiful land.
We began with the Middle East (décor by Tiana Mae Designs) with flavorful spiced pumpkin dishes to prawn kabobs and saffron rice. This night also included a special appearance of belly dancers to fully enhance the Middle Eastern experience.
We have since then made our way to Southeast Asia enjoying every bite along the way. For the special Southeast Asia dinner, there were beautifully handmade spring rolls with flowers and delicious entrees with basil and jackfruit. The night ended on a sweet note with amazing banana fritters with mango.
Next up in the series: India. Stay tuned for announcements on our Instagram (@threetwelveco)
Denim dreams do come true.
This bright and sunny afternoon was a big hit with Bang Bang Co. The very talented Rina Khadivi worked diligently on perfecting the pieces for our vintage denim dreams. The guests customized the denim jackets with their choice of pins, patches, stitch embroidery, and paint. Many added their personal painting skills to the jackets with fun messages.
After Rina gave some tips, the guests used creative ways to give personality to their jackets. Each jacket was unique and beautiful in its own way.
"You can't buy this. It's a feeling."
Yes, we’ve heard. This place was “lit”. Everyone took turns sharing how they light up their lives and the lives of others around them. The Candle Making Workshop definitely brightened up our hearts.
Guests mixed and poured their very own scented candle using essential oils and 100% soy wax. Tiana from Tiana Mae Designs came to hand paint custom stickers for each candle to be further personalized. Everyone got to take home their special candles with a darling matchbox. Our #shinyandbright candle workshop also included Light refreshments and treats from We The Birds Macarons.
Place on Parry was full of light and laughter.
On October 8th, we had extreme cuteness overload at Place on Parry! The Kawaii Popup Bakery was adorably filled with kawaii-themed macarons from We The Birds, cookies, donuts, cat cakes from Lala’s Cakes and iced matcha. We also included a mini market full of other little cute things we love. Guests even got the chance to get treated with kawaii nails by Patricia Valle from @mspattycake.
Celebrating our first workshop at the new space, we opened our doors with beautiful and unique flowers from expert local florist Lauren Clinkscales of The Backyard Bouquet. What a better way to have a warming for Place on Parry than to watch everyone’s creativity in full bloom?!
We stayed cool for the summer at this pool party with fresh, cold pressed juice from Local Press + Brew. A fit smoothie demo from Kara Stout (@nutritionbykara) and a 45 minute workout by Kami Blease (@thekalonlife) definitely inspired us to get hot and chill (with cocktails in cracked coconuts at the rooftop pool!).
Decorate your cake and eat it too! Lauren Lee, a multi-show competitor on Food Network’s Cupcake Wars + Cake Wars, guided this event making it a piece of cake. Along with the Cactus and Succulent themed cakes, Lauren Lee also shared her own tips and tricks for home decorating. With (buttercream) icing on top, these beautifully decorated cakes were carefully boxed up to take home.
Rebeka Wright, owner of Knot So Cookie guided our guests in creating their own sentimental hand-woven wall hanging from our yarn bar. A relaxing afternoon with mimosas from @localpressbrew, and light bites & macarons from We The Birds Macarons made it a beautiful experience. These moments were captured by Beckley & Co.
Local artists and creatives gathered Oak Cliff this afternoon to paint signs for the upcoming Kwestival. Beckley & Co captured the beauty of the neighborhood art. In addition to the lovely visuals, live music from Kirk Thurmond made this experience come together. Guests enjoyed the local art, music, drinks, and treats. There was also a flower station to get into the Kwestival mood.
Getting into the spring season, we held a colorful workshop featuring Jenna of Paper & Posies. Guests created their own watercolor geodes with paint and liquid gold to bring home. As a special gift, guests were given pre-matted frames for their new jewel-toned piece of art. This lovely afternoon was full of rosé, chocolate gem candy bars, and treats for our special guests.
This evening was especially memorable because of the farm itself where retired veterans rehabilitate returning veterans suffering from PTSD, depression and addiction by way of agriculture and farming. We chose to feature local Dallas chef Misti Norris (executive chef at Small Brewpub recently nominated for a James Beard Award) because of her incredible talent and commitment to responsible food sourcing. 7 course tasting menu (with pairings from Messina Hof Winery - also veteran owned and operated) consisted of items sourced directly from the farm itself.
Kwestival 2016 was a major success thanks to all of our vendors, participants and, of course, our partner (kwest - the app ) without whom we would never have dreamed up such a special day. kwest is a digital scavenger hunt app that connects users with their own city, if you have not downloaded it, what are you waiting for? With just under 10,000 people who joined us throughout the day at #kwestival, we have decided to make this an annual party as well as kwest's launch party in every new city- we will see you next time at the 2017 dallas kwestival coming next spring! For now? Next stop: austin, texas. Major thanks to Beckley & Co. for the photos that perfectly sum up the day. visit the three twelve co. facebook page for more photos.
Three Twelve Co.'s MISSION WAS FULFILLED AND GRACIOUSLY CAPTURED THIS WEEKEND at Summerfield at Tate Farms.
March 5th was a day of natural beauty, inside and out. we had the pleasure of working with an incredible #dreamteam of passionate and talented women in such a picturesque setting.
So picturesque, that these photographs by Beckley & Co. are worth more than a thousand words. A thousand words that we cannot even begin to express due to our overwhelming sense of joy and gratitude.
Thank you for all of your continued love and support as YOU are why we do this <3

We really and truly enjoyed connecting with the many talented women present tonight at the launch of The Meetup Dallas. Thank you all!
Three Twelve Co. does brunch. Thanks Kit and Ace for inviting us to make this handcrafted meal for you and a few local creatives. From brioche french toast and berries to skillet pulled pork hash, today's menu was curated to fill the hearts and tummies of our fellow Dallasites.
Spread the love. Time is precious.
Our Pantone & Posies mini workshops at Kit and Ace were just darling. We featured bespoke calligrapher Jenna Underwood from Paper & Posies and sweets from Lala's Cakes! Attendees hand painted on cookies, created gift tags and place cards using the Pantone color of the year: Serenity and Rose Quartz.
We also offered a sip 'n shop in honor of the debut of Fox + Found's first pop-up! Visit the #pantoneandposies hashtag on Instagram to see more photos from the event.
This dessert-only dance featured mini treats, a vegan food truck, open bar, hip hop and r&b music, trailer photo booth, a flower wall and more! $2 of each ticket went towards socks and chocolate chip cookies donated to The Bridge Homeless Center in Dallas.

The first official vegan pop-up dinner in Dallas, since 2012, featured a 3 course meal with dessert plus a floral arrangement workshop. Guests selected greenery and flowers from an extensive array of locally foraged items and created their own bouquets to take home. Dinner was served as everyone got to know one another and connected in a warm, friendly atmosphere. This was such an interactive and heart-warming experience that we are making it a quarterly event.
