Lunar new year is always a special celebration for me. Growing up, I have fond memories of receiving red envelopes and celebrating with family over good food. This year, we were thrilled to put together a beautiful mall activation for Upper Canada Mall to celebrate Lunar New Year.

The mall activation included a gold and red dragon, a lush floral wall, and an interactive zodiac fortune wall. We then accented the space with graphics designed in auspicious colours and symbols. It came together beautiful and was a great spot to celebrate the Year Of the Dragon!

The Dragon was definitely the centrepiece to this mall activation! It was a whopping 9ft long and 8ft tall, towering over guests and creating a beautiful backdrop for photos. We loved how it turned out!

This zodiac fortune wall was created to educate the public around the 12 zodiac signs for the lunar new year. When you find your birth year, you can open the panel to see what your fortune is for the year of the dragon. This was a fun and interactive way to engage with the Lunar New Year mall activation.

We created this flower wall as a photo opp for guests, made in auspicious yellow, red and gold coloured floral. Lunar New Year always signifies the end of winter and the start of spring, so we love using flowers to celebrate the start of the spring season. Flowers always look great for a photo opp too!
