CANCERCARE GOLD PLATE GALA 2014

What can we say? We can’t get enough of gold!

This classic and elegant look was for the CancerCare Manitoba Gold Plate Gala, which seated close to 1000 guests. Some of our BEST (and heaviest!) pieces were used for this extravagant affair. We were so honoured to be a part of the event once again as the Planning & Decor Sponsor.

Enjoy our favourite detailed shots!

Concordia Hospital Foundation Gala 2014

It’s not everyday we get to hang out with a Olympic Gold Medalist.

At the Concordia Foundation’s 31st Annual Gala Dinner “Celebrating Body, Mind & Soul,” we had the great pleasure to put together a beautiful and FUN event for Team Jennifer Jones, where Ms. Jones was honoured with the 2014 Martin Bergen Award.

To make sure the team felt at home, we installed a customized curling rink on the second floor of the Delta Winnipeg for guests to enjoy while snapping a photo with Team Jennifer Jones (you can see our photo with the Olympic Gold Medalists further down).

Another great gala during another great gala season. As always, we can’t wait until next year!

Wine Festival Gala & Dinner 2014

Looking back at this gala season, it appears we went a little tulip-crazy (in a good way, of course).

An abundance of these violet beauties, supplied and arranged by Academy Florists, helped dress the RBC Convention Centre Winnipeg for this year’s Wine Festival Gala Dinner & Auction in support of our good friends, Special Olympics Manitoba. To add a great personal touch to the tablescape design, our team created customized wine glass table numbers with burlap and spray paint (see below!).

Here are a few of our favourite detailed shots. Enjoy!

Winnipeg’s 8th Annual All That Glitters Gala

When meeting with our clients, one of our favourite things to hear at the beginning of the planning process is: we want to do a theme!

We can go on and on about the benefits and appeal of themed events, and if you’re interested in learning more about them, we even covered Five Steps to Master Your Themed Event in May’s e-newsletter.

To give you an idea about how FUN and creative themed events can be, check out the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of Canada Gala, where we threw a “Retro Rockin’ Party” this spring at the RBC Convention Centre Winnipeg.

A few of our favourite details from this event have to be the dozens of records we hanged over the dance floor, the customized pop labels and of course, the jukebox!

To add some fun, we also had the Winnipeg roller derby team SuckerPunch skating around during cocktail hour giving out pop bottles to guests, which created the nostalgic vintage diner experience!

Scopus Award 2014 Honouring Moe Levy

One of the many perks of working in the event industry is being able to meet so many inspiring individuals, who are usually honoured at our events, and Moe Levy is no exception!

We partnered with The Canadian Friends of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem to put on this year’s Scopus Awards at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights, where Winnipeg’s own Moe Levy accepted this year’s Scopus award, which is the highest humanitarian honour at the University. Moe Levy, currently the Executive Director of the Asper Foundation, played a crucial role in fundraising for the CMHR. So, whenever we’re putting on a spectacular event at the Museum, we know we have Moe to thank!

For the Scopus Award, we honoured Moe’s heritage and brought the Indian city Mumbai to Winnipeg. The event featured ethnic entertainers, Mumbai-inspired street food and even a Bollywood flash mob!

Enjoy our favourite shots by blfStudios fine art photography. Thanks for the amazing photos, Bond!

While planning her own wedding, Kylee quickly picked up on the need of specialty linens in Winnipeg. With ambition and hard work, she took the entrepreneurial leap and established Planned Perfectly in 2006. From a humble beginning in her basement, Kylee has moved her company to a 6000 sq ft warehouse and has quickly grown into one of Winnipeg’s leading linen suppliers.

“We’ve worked side-by-side Kylee and her team on a weekly basis for years, from the early morning setups to all the late night takedowns,” says Emma Singh, Founder & CEO of Events by Emma. “They play an important and essential role in helping us bring our client’s visions to reality.”

In the past year, Planned Perfectly worked on over 200 events, including weddings, non-profit fundraisers, conferences and corporate affairs. Their vast selection of colours, styles and textured linens will appeal to any bride or event organizer. On top of specialty table linens, Planned Perfectly also offers their clients draping, napkins, chiavari chairs and charger rentals to help them with their event needs.

We asked Staci from Planned Perfectly:
1. Why are linens and draping important to an event?
Linens and draping can change the entire vibe and look of a room and make it into an entirely different space.

2. What are your favourite types of events, and why?
We enjoy every event for different reasons, but we love weddings to see each couple’s ideas and colours transform their venue.

3. Any exciting linen trends this year we should watch out for?
This year is all about the sequins and gold touches. We have also had a huge success with our natural linen line opposed to the traditional satin and, in the more recent years, textured table clothes (e.g. our crinkle series).

4. What are you favourite things about working with Events by Emma?
We enjoy working with EBE because of because of their creativity and they always have such great energy!
