After deciding she needed a change in her career, Yvonne Kriskovic, owner decided to immerse herself in something she had a passion for – events and décor. Kriskovic and her husband, Steve Kriskovic, first started their business out of the comfort of their home in 2002. The business quickly grew and now Dream Day Decorators fills a 15,000 square foot warehouse.
Yvonne loves working with clients and helping them make their wedding or event truly incredible. She says she is always up for a challenge and enjoys creating new looks. Dream Day Decorators has grown to be one of Winnipeg’s leading event décor and linen suppliers.
At Events by Emma, we work with Yvonne and the team at Dream Day Decorators during many of our events, including weddings, corporate affairs, and non-profit fundraisers. “Their passion for events and willingness to try something new with all of our EBE Designs and event projects help our team to surpass all of our clients expectations,” says Singh. “We could not do what we do without their amazing support and beautiful linens, chair covers and draping. Their selection is amazing and they are always willing to bring in new items to keep our events looking fresh, stunning, and innovative,” says Singh.
Why are linens so important for an event?
Linens truly transform the room, they are the foundation of your décor elements. They really help you create a feel or theme that helps to set the mood on your day.
What is something people may not know when choosing their linens?
Choosing your linens really starts with choosing the right vendor. It is very important to work with a company that understands that quality is of the utmost importance. Here at Dream Day we wash and press all our own linens which helps us to control quality and ensure that our clients are getting the best product available.
What would you tell someone who knows nothing about choosing linens for an event?
It’s important to know what colours you are working with and the overall mood that want your room to have. How do you want your guests to feel when they enter your event? From fun and vibrant or romantic, classy and elegant.
What are some trends for 2016?
We are seeing a lot of neutral tones, very elegant, and classy. Clients are loving soft colours, champanges and golds.
What are some tips you would give someone looking at linens for their event? Don’t be scared of colour and textures or being creative with the linens. They can create such an amazing statement and energy into the room.
What is it like working with Events by Emma? I truly love working with Events by Emma and her team. They are very passionate and professional and always have their client’s interests at heart. They create very unique designs and thrive to push the limits in their designs to truly give their clients and the guests a memorable event.
What is your favourite event you’ve worked on with the EBE Team?
Oh, that is tough … I have really like a lot of them. Probably the Grey Cup Events as it was one of the largest events and the most challenging, not to mention that it was such an honour to be involved with them.
