Don’t let the snowy weather fool you, spring has sprung in Toronto and what better way to kick off the season than the annual Art Gallery of Ontario industry party! On a personal note, I love the AGO for several key reasons: the fine art, the great food, and the modern architecture! Combine this with the hard-earned reputation of throwing one of the best soirees in the industry and you’ve got yourself an evening to remember!

If you missed the real deal, rest assured that the talented team at 5ive15ifteen Photo Company has you covered for all of the fresh and fabulous photos!

The chic lounge setups from Contemporary Furniture Rentals and Chair-man Mills served as the perfect backdrop to the pops of Rose Quartz decor. The fab floral team from Stemz crafted beautiful floral displays that provided the perfect fresh spring feel to the whole evening.

The high ceilings and the minimalist aesthetic provides the perfect avenue for dramatic and unexpected floral arrangements.

Upon arrival, we immediately felt welcomed with valet service courtesy of Northern Valet. Guests were then ushered to the action. Inside, the friendly team at The Butler Did It welcomed all attendees. Guests were enthralled by the delicious and unique catering stations like the passed Mini Cemitas (which are fried chicken with avocado and refried beans on a brioche bun) and the Offalgood station, offering delectable pork rillettes with chicken liver and mushroom pate with housemade crackers, crisps, and toasts.
