El Fresco Engagement Dinner Party

El Fresco parties were the best way to celebrate safely at a time when social restrictions are in place due to covid-19. Our team collaborated with some Toronto event industry greats to bring to life the prettiest engagement party dinner. Ok, so it wasn’t under the Tuscan sun, but this Italian inspired design had the party guests singing ‘thats Amore’!  Taking advantage of the beautiful summer weather, we created a stunning wood trellis canopy detailed with loose fabric and flower accents. The stunning gallery tables were splashed with lemon accents and little olive oil favours, because it wouldn’t be Italian with out olive oil right? Guests’ were served an incredible summer harvest style meal by catering genius, Elle Cuisine as they enjoyed the evening sunset. Photographed by the talented Will Reid Photography and planned by Ashley Pigott Events. For a full list of vendors see bottom of post.

The team at Ashley Pigott Events and our design team at Rachel A. Clingen whipped up the prettiest birthday party, while ensuring guest safety.

Sweet 16 Girls Picnic Birthday Party

Although the Covid-19 Pandemic brought a halt to large scale events, the summer of 2020 was a hi-lite for small intimate parties and events. Event party planner, Michelle from Sincerely Yours Events and the design team here at Rachel A. Clingen, created the prettiest Sweet Sixteen birthday party. The luxurious picnic party included a creative and yummy menu perfect for kids which included peach cobbler funnel cakes and gourmet fry plates. The most stunning pink ribbon cake was perfect for the birthday girl. Summer wild flowers and playful balloons were used to create feminine and fun decor.  For a full list of vendors see bottom of post. A special thanks to my precious nieces!
