I’m so thrilled that the province is opening up and that gatherings/events are back! We are getting slammed with inquiries for events, parties and weddings, and it’s the perfect time to share some party planning tips with our friends at Cityline.

Cityline Party Ideas with Rebecca Chan

FOOD IDEAS

Charcuterie spreads are a great way to feed a lot of people at once, and no cooking is needed! Order this awesome “table runner” spread from Cured Catering, a play on a decorative runner for the dining table.

Order a drool-worthy dessert spread to wow guests. I like ordering sweets from cake artists like Sweet Regards who specialize in events so they make sweets that look as good as they taste.

DRINK IDEAS

Don’t you hate it when you lose your drink at a house party? Weddingstar has some cute drink accessories to help with this, including drink cozies to keep your bevy cold and cute, colourful stir sticks for a mexican fiesta theme party, and wine glass rings perfect for hosting a bridal shower or engagement party.

Always have some great non-alcoholic drink options for guests beyond just water and pop. Rizo Radiance offers collagen enhanced drinks with beautiful bottles. They’re tasty too!

DECORATE AT HOME

When you’re at home, you want to enhance what you already have. I’ve decorated my space here with lots of greenery and plants from Bloom Service Co. It’s a great excuse to buy yourself some new plants that you can keep afterwards.

For some fun signage, I’ve made my dining room mirror a focal point of the space with some beautiful calligraphy from Love Lettering by Doris Wai. She’s also made these terrariums into beautiful signage, so they do double duty for decor. Having beautiful signage and decor like this, just ties everything together.
