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.

The Covid pandemic has left many who are planning birthdays and other events, with the creative challenge to scale down party size and plan for safe social distancing. The team at Ashley Pigott Events and our design team at Rachel A. Clingen whipped up the prettiest birthday party, while ensuring guest safety. We are designing more out door parties than ever and making the best of Toronto’s summer months. Catering such an event takes on new challenges as well however the amazing team at Elle Cuisine brings their creative strength to catering parties. I love the unique floral palette for this lovely little set up. Summer wild flowers and bright colours make for a cheery and festive event.
