When I heard that Blair was looking for planner for her 30th birthday party, I couldn't wait to see what she had in mind. Blair had recently moved to Toronto with her partner, Danny Green, for his 2019 basketball season with the Toronto Raptors.
Blair and Danny came to our first meeting looking for the perfect venue for a Winter themed event. We ran through some ideas and quickly, #WinterBBashInthe6Ix was born.
With guests flying in from all over the US, of the three venues we toured, the Thompson hotel was the perfect fit. With Rooftop views of the Toronto skyline, it made the perfect backdrop to Blair's winter party theme. It was clear from the start, Blair is the life of every party, with friends travelling such great distances to make sure her 30th birthday was her best one yet.
Sipping on Dusée and Armand de Brignac's Ace of Spades Champagne, guests partied all night with DJ Nitrane while snacking on passed hors d'oeuvres by the Thompson including a custom dessert table.
R5 Events transformed the space into a winter wonderland, including "snow" candles and of course, a custom drink luge was a feature of the event.
Guests left the party with the world's most appreciated party favour: custom hangover kits that included bottled water, Advil and Party Smart hangover pills.
Congrats on the 2019 championship Danny and Blair! I hope you are both having a wonderful time in Los Angeles.
(We are sure you won't miss our Canadian winters, but we certainly miss you!)
