I attended a great industry event last night -La Reverie at Andrew Richard Designs. Located on Adelaide East, next door to Up Country, this gorgeous show room of chic and luxurious patio furniture is also a special event venue.
As I'm always looking for unique spaces in Toronto, Andrew Richard Designs Events is definitely one on my list as it can be used for corporate and social events of all kinds. Coincidentally, I just executed a wedding there this past Saturday and it was gorgeous!
Anyhow, back to La Reverie. As we entered ARD we stopped to pose for a snapshot, and then took a moment to drink it all in. There were two fully stocked bars and at least 10, if not more, caterers showcasing their culinary delights on the Atrium floor. Needless to say, this party guru/foodie was experiencing sensory overload and I couldn't wait to dive in. Here are some pics of some of the tasty treats we enjoyed:
Mini chicken souvlakia with tzatiziki and mini Greek salad.
Shrimp and Sweet Peat Parfait with a Savoury Whipped Cream & Cheery Tomato by L-Eat Catering.
BTW - Niki from L-Eat is a doll and amazing to work with!
Lobster Pot Pie.
La Piece de Resistance - An Amazing Cheese & Fruit Display by Pusateris.
Delicious White Chocolate Raspberry Tarts, again by L-Eat Catering.
Besides all of the wonderful food and drinks enjoyed by all, ARD showcased some ideas for added entertainment at an event. There was everything from a live band, to fortune tellers. Here are a few pictures:
Soular kicking off the party right with their soulful voices and funky sounds!
Upstairs in the Loft DJ Daniel Buckman of BELLOSOUND spins some great tunes.
I loved the pink lounge! The beautiful draped fabric and flowers were designed by ARD with rented furniture from Contemporary Furniture Rentals.

Just outside the pink lounge were two very popular fortune tellers.
Miles plays his sax alongside BELLOSOUNDS and adds a nice bluesy tone.

How cute are these little windowed bags? They're from Creative Bags who have an assortment of custom bags, ribbons, tissue and wraps for all of your party needs.
To finish off a great night, I redeemed my ice cream coupon at Captain Cone for a yummy soft-serve twist cone!
As a party guru I know how much work it takes to put something like thistogether, so kudos to Andrew, his team and all of the vendors who did a great job!
For the life of the party,
