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.

Mango Studios is no stranger to us or the Toronto event industry. The luxury Toronto photography firms’, founder, Mo and his beautiful wife celebrate a 40th birthday! David and I have worked with the team at Mango for over 20 years and so it was such a pleasure to design a special dinner party evening for the stylish couple. The small urban backyard party had all the right vibes for a guys 4oth! In just a few days, we came up with a concept, which included our team custom building a stunning wood pergola to canopy over the dining area. The structure was designed to fit perfectly between their beautiful modern home and the pool and supported beautiful hanging chandeliers and lanterns. Moroccan inspired, we created a chic and sophisticated yet relaxed table-scape with rich tones of burgundy, gold and black. Modern place settings included a pop of colour. The evening was casual and intimate with the guests enjoying dinner seated on oversized pillows at a low dining table. Beautiful candle lit lanterns accented the pool and inviting fire pit were guests gathered after dinner. Happy Birthday Mo! Thank you for trusting us with such a special occasion.
