Just a Little Flower Arrangement…

Now that the latest WedLuxe magazine has finally hit the stands, we are thrilled to share some tid bits from Shelby and Graeme’s gorgeous wedding at the Royal Ontario Museum last June. I don’t think the photo needs a whole lot of explanation, but I did have Sarah and Gabi go and stand next to the arrangement, just so we […]

The View from Grand Cru

Written by Gabi Slaninova In October, we helped coordinate an event for the Grand Cru Culinary Wine Festival. The concept for Grand Cru is a fantastic one: to unite esteemed chefs with sought-after wine producers, philanthropists, business leaders and scientists for an unforgettable evening of fine wines and glorious cuisine… all to raise money for the University Health Network. This […]

Grand Cru, Too

Here are some decor shots from the same Grand Cru party, courtesy of photographer Kelly Fischstein. Event designer Bill Fulghum created a sexy, sophisticated environment worthy of the world-class food and wine that would be served to the 32 lucky guests. Advanced Tent provided a sleek black tent, which Bill softened with shimmery taupe drape at both ends and specially-focused […]

The Veuve From Here

Take a look at what I stumbled upon on my annual trip to Art Basel Miami last week: a Clicq’ Up Lounge! At first we thought it was a mirage, after a full day of wandering through art exhibits and installations… but no. It was real. There, in a parking lot in Miami’s sensational Design District stood a makeshift Veuve […]

The View From Here

How much fun is this? Event Designer (and all around Man of Style) Bill Fulghum saved all his Vanity Fair magazine covers for years until he had enough of them to wallpaper an entire wall in his powder room… A slightly better perspective on how many covers there are (I couldn’t physically get further away to show the full view […]

Pretty in Pink: Part 1

Our client who was throwing a Bat Mitzvah for her daughter at The Royal Conservatory of Music had a vision for a really cool, really pink Sweet Table… but the first quote we got to execute her vision was $17,600… Have I given you long enough to digest that? Probably not.Alas, the lovely Laura Long from Daniel et Daniel hooked […]

Pretty in Pink: Part 2

Here’s a photo of the whole table — it was so long it was almost impossible to get the whole thing in a single frame! You can get a sense of the length of it if I tell you the Pink Rice Krispies Square-Cake (which you can see at the top of the shot) was only half-way down… A close […]

Pretty in Pink: Behind-the Scenes

Being a planner means I can’t leave anything to chance… and to that end, the night before the event, Lisa Phillips and I carted all the loot to the RCM to do a dry run. Here are some of those photos: We started playing with what should go where on the ugly, linen-less tables. Dubble Bubble, Pop Rocks and White […]

Steam(whistle)ing from a Hot Oven

Written by Gabi Slaninova We recently did a wedding at Steam Whistle Brewery. A new venue for us, it inspired us to think outside the box a little. Throughout the planning process, our focus was to create an organic and natural feeling in the space using real linen, ferns, large white dahlia, herbs, moss and anything that reminded us of […]

Miss Missoni

Talk about a timely party! When we came up with a “Missoni Theme” for a birthday luncheon my client was throwing, it was long before we heard that the famous Italian fashion house had teamed up with Target to do a line of housewares and fashion! But. We are nothing if not festive girls (client included) and five days before […]
