I know we’re not supposed to have favourites but sometimes you just can’t help it. What makes Dundas Agri Systems my favourite? I love that they trust me to run with their events. We meet, discuss the idea and then we run. This year’s chosen theme, a casino night.
Some of my favourite planning parts of this event were transforming one of the client’s workshops into the event space, bringing in a food truck and seeing how excited the guests were getting to gamble away fake money. I love that the client is a foody and loves a great bar.
We brought in a food truck we’ve never worked with before, Smoque Shack. They were fantastic. The service leading up to the event was great and the food was exactly what the client had hoped for.
And how can you not love a client who has their own drink named after them…and of course a story to go with it.
I also loved that I got to challenge one of our favourite food vendors, Sugar House Cakes, to push her usual cake limits. She created the most gorgeous “dessert” table. We had beautiful fruit, delicious cheeses (I love cheese!!), sweets and cute mousse in shot glasses with little mini spoons.
And of course, the most important part of a casino night, the tables! The guests had so much fun gambling the night away. It was a little slow getting them to the tables but once the ice was broken there was no tearing them away. The dealers from Full House Casino Rentals were fantastic. I loved that they took the time to teach the guests how to play and explained how the play would have been different in a real casino.
