I had the great pleasure of working with Deputy Mayor Lorelei Nicoll to stage her spring networking event. The networking event was held at Cole Harbour Place in May in the main lobby area. It was a great event with business people from the community, parks and recreation volunteers, and other locals attending and sharing what they’re working on, and progress being made in the community.
Those that are familiar with Cole Harbour place were pleasantly surprised at the transformation. The theme was daisies so the event design included white event furniture along with some simple daisies and some lighting to transform the space into a more intimate space. Below are some photos of the event staging.

I had the great pleasure of being one of the collaborators for Bespoke: The Wedding Event. Claudia Habib, owner of Simply Weddings enlisted event and wedding professionals throughout Halifax to assist with transforming six rooms within the Halifax Club to showcase local talent. From furniture and décor rental companies, companies offering wedding stationery, accessories for the models, cakes, favours, event lighting, to name a few, there was no lack of talent brought together for this event. Each of the six rooms had different themes, from Irish Pub Wedding, Contemporary/Rockabilly Wedding, Winter Wedding, Regal Red & Gold Wedding, Indian Wedding, and Parisian Wedding.
I worked with Claudia directly on the Parisian Wedding room which she designed. I was one of the event furniture rental companies for this room, and I brought in furniture and décor for the bride and grooms lounging area. The grey leather tufted sofa in my furniture rental inventory was perfect – stylish and sophisticated. Other pieces such as the white tufted bench, occasional chair with French script, white throw rug and plush throw pillows and throw soften the space making an amazing lounging area for the beautiful bride and groom models within the room.
Claudia, a wedding planner extraordinaire, created a breathtaking head table and room, that any bride would die to have at their wedding
The wedding event was unlike any other held in Halifax, Claudia’s vision to create a wedding event like this to showcase local talent will be talked about for a long time! I’m very honoured to have been part of it.
I had the pleasure of offering event staging services for 100 Men Who give a Damn. 100 Men Who Give a Damn Halifax is an organization that involves close to 250 men within Halifax that come together quarterly to help local charities.
It’s a great concept, four charities have 5 minutes to pitch why their charity should receive the money gathered during the evening. I should go back…each member contributes $100 during each meeting. Right after the presentations by the charities the men vote and a cheque is presented to the charity that received the most votes. When all members are present the contribution is over $20k! At this last event the Kids Help phone Halifax received over $16K and that amount can go up ad absent members send in their cheques.
One of the main organizers, Neil Stephen, felt that the group would benefit from more networking after the event and that setting up the venue with some lounging areas and cocktail tables would provide a better atmosphere, to compliment the already existing cash bars.
Feedback was great, Neil felt that it was their best networking event, tightened up the space, and that the set up did exactly what he wanted…created a better space and atmosphere for the event.
It was a fun event to stage. My goal was a sophisticated “man cave” networking space. I used grey leather furniture, modern black chairs, Noguchi style occasional tables and décor rental pieces were made from metals and woods to give it a very masculine feel.

King’s Wharf was celebrating the Grand Opening of their next condo building, the Killick. For this VIP event staging project, I received a call from the Event Manager, Menna Riley, who was looking for furniture rental options different from what everyone had seen so many times at events around Halifax.
The venue was amazing, with full length windows overlooking the Halifax Harbour and the downtown area, and concrete floors, walls and columns. I brought in grey leather sofas, modern black chairs, and benches to make separate conversational areas within the space. I used white glass occasional tables and for the benches I used white ones, and areas rugs to soften the space slightly and to complete the separate conversational areas. Having a lot of these white nesting occasional tables I was able to add them in additional areas to create a real cohesive look, while tightening the space to create a more intimate setting.
For the event décor rental for the seating areas I used pieces that were on the industrial side and somewhat gender neutral and embraced the beautiful natural roughness of the concrete environment. Menna had a bar area, coat check, red carpet area with artwork set up, and lighting to pull the space together beautifully! It was a great event to work on, the final results were great and Menna was such a treat to work with!
