Spring Has Sprung!

Ahhh… the Prima Vera of Spring! There’s nothing quite like it, is there? A season of renewal, hope and happy thoughts of warmer days ahead. We did a rehearsal dinner this past week at Jamie Kennedy at the Gardiner Museum that felt so fresh and spring-y, I just had to post about it; even if all I have at 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 […]


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 […]


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 […]


The View From Here

Well you can tell when our busy season hits — the blog posts come to a screeching halt. It’s a good thing to be busy, but I always feel a tinge of guilt when I’m ignoring She Said Spectacular! To that end, I’m going to try a new series entitled, “The View from Here,” filled with short glimpses and quick […]


Med School Reunion, 2.0

As with any great party, it’s the details that make all the difference. We thought we’d share some with you here: This was the booklet we designed to sit at each place. It worked 3-fold: the front (pictured here) showed the “logo” we designed for the reunion, the back listed out the menu for the evening and the inside can […]


Tulip Fever

So, you may wonder why the title has ‘tulip’ in it, but the photos don’t? That’s because, as any person in the event industry will tell you, working with mother nature can be a very stressful thing… We were given the task of designing a party for a highly sophisticated, highly attuned and self-proclaimed Design Snob. 800 tulips had been […]


A Very Fashionable Bash

We recently had the honour of helping to throw a very big birthday party for a truly special lady whose love of fashion comes second only to her love of family. We took this obsession with All Things Fashion and carried it through the evening… The first hint of things to come was the invite. Caren Thomas of Bus Stop […]


Celebrating Sixty in Miami

Last October we planned a 50th wedding anniversary party here in Toronto (you can read the post in the 2009 section below) — I thought being married to the same person for 50 years seemed like an amazing feat. Well, we managed to top that with a 60th anniversary bash we threw last month in not-so-balmy Miami. Even more remarkably, […]
