Hired to plan an event for a special friend, I was inspired to create a garden, Midsummer Night’s Dream style event (without the donkey head). The birthday girl, with her own sparkle and love of fairies and gardens needed a party to match. The catch? It’s was March in Toronto.
Renting out Grano, an Italian restaurant on the city’s Young St. with a great menu for our guests, I worked to find a balance between the space’s private dining decor, and my vision of classy garden event.
Using fresh apple and limes in place of traditional centerpieces; mason jars, tealights and sheet moss as room accents, the room came alive and was a beautiful backdrop to the celebration.
