Celebrations and joy go hand in hand. With the party season around the corner, we decided to kick start it with our GET MOVIN’ event! We love to party and have organized close to a hundred events, so we decided to share our celebration secrets! From what to wear, how to look fabulous, to tips on how to be the perfect party host – we shared our fave party essentials to ensure everyone celebrates in high style.
THE “HOT SPOT”
The first thing on our party planning list is always a fabulous location. It’s all about ambiance… We were hyped to host our GET MOVIN’ event at new hotspot LEMONADE. Why it’s crushworthy: cool underground vibe, innovative industrial design filled with homespun Mtl entrepreneurs and their creativity at every corner. Plus there were friggin’ SWINGS. Swings!!! If you can turn lemons into lemonade this is the place to be.
LA CRÈME DE LA CRÈME BOUTIQUE
Nothing says celebration than looking the part. Bring on the red carpet glam! Want to stand out in the crowd? Here’s our little secret: La Creme de la Creme Boutique, is our favourite destination to find the perfect dress for all occasions. Owned by a gorgeous sister duo, they showcased the best dresses to ensure you sparkle this season.
THE “WHAT TO WEAR”
LES COURS MONT-ROYAL
With so many celebrations to attend, you need an assortment of fabulous styles for every festive occasion. We highlighted our “what to wear” faves from the hottest boutiques in Les Cours Mont-Royal.
How to shine this season? Make a statement with the right accessories and leave “a little sparkle wherever you go.” Our guests received an exclusive preview of the new Delilah K collection before its official launch. Joy comes from within, but also from pretty little packages too!
Glow from the inside out. When you believe you can take on the world, the celebration comes to you! Our friends at Beautitude shared their glow tips at the coolest Lemon-Aide stand ever. It’s #BeautyWithAnAttitude! Guests were treated to VIP pampering for party perfect skin.
How to enhance your best features and let your pretty shine! Our Wonderblush beauty experts shared beauty tips and lash secrets to up your beauty game for every bash.
LULUTHIA DESIGN & HAUTE BALLOON
It’s all about the details! Set the tone and be the most-talked dinner party or mega celebration! It does not matter if your party is big or small, make it memorable with finishing touches. We showcased our fave invitation ideas, tablescapes, flowers and decor must-haves with the trio from Luluthia, Luluthia Paper Design and Haute Balloon.
A picture if worth a thousand words. We shared how to capture your party perfect memories with our fave interactive masters Get Socially. Relive the joy through the photos!
Very high on our event planning list is the catering. Nothing brings people together like good food. And we know good food. It’s so good we didn’t even want to share (but we did). We won everyone’s party hearts through their tummies with Franca Mazza’s gourmet goodness.
Life is sweet, make yours even sweeter! No celebration is complete without sugary treats! Our guests savoured the tasty creations from Patisserie Tillemont. They shared how to create a memorable sweet table filled with an assortment of heavenly desserts. Divine!
DJ JOVIE J
Music sets the tone for any event. The right DJ keeps you movin’ to the beat, ours is next level…Our VIP guests got to experience DJ Jovie J’s trademark mixes!
We had our own very special reason to get movin’ too! We were going into our lucky thirteenth year in business (wow, we’re teens!) and we literally got movin’ as in we moved our office! Our new mantra is all about spreading JOY so we threw a party to kick start another exciting chapter! Both JOY & JOIE and GET MOVIN’ are all about making the most of life, taking on new opportunities and celebrating every milestone big and small.
