"Tis The Season" DONAVAN Dream Designs Mini Blog | April 2017

Party Time Rentals Studio Take Over Now on display for the month of April!

Welcome to the Donovan Dream Designs Studio Take Over! The amazing team at Party Time Rentals invited me to display my talents in their April Show room. Chantale asked me to put together a Spring theme and let me run with the idea. I started thinking Spring and thought how I could incorporate more of the year into my design all while showcasing the extremely large and never-ending inventory at Party Time Rentals.

I came up with the "Tis The Season" Table. I created 7 different designs of 7 different times of the year. Something unique and not your average holiday or themed tablescape.

7 different chairs

Chairs: Party Time Rentals

I was obsessed with the different chairs at each setting. I also loved using different chairs that you don't see all the time. The mint & pink combo is one of my favourites along with a chair that has a grass back. Very different and eye-catching.

7 different centrepieces

Centrepieces: Party Time Rentals | Florals: Ottawa Flowers

I'm in love with a good statement centrepiece and love incorporating candles, flowers, and other decor items . Looking up and down the table when it was all finished made me delighted to see it all come together for a breathtaking final look.

7 Different Floral Designs

Florals: Ottawa Flowers

Pavel and his rockstar team at Ottawa Flowers continue to blow me away with their amazing work. They put together stunning custom floral arrangements for each setting and the detail they put into picking the perfect colours to match the theme and decor items was spot on. Attention to detail is important to me and they continue to produce phenomenal designs with details that impress me more each time we work together.

7 Different Linens and Place Settings

Going back to Party Time Rentals having everything: for the 7 different place settings I was able to chose different chargers, cutlery, glasses, napkins, linens and not repeat once. You really can go in, mix and match, and create the custom setting perfect for any type of event.

7 Different Stationery Designs

Casey Snyder of Casey Snyder Design created the stationery for this project. She was such a pleasure to work with and what she came up with was spot on. I was impressed with how she designed 7 completely different designs that fit in just perfectly. Her designs added a great touch to the table. Check out here amazing portfolio HERE. I can't wait to continue to work with her in the future on more fun and exciting projects.

7 Different Custom Cookie Designs

Sugar Sugar Ottawa led by Amanda Hayden was the final touch I added to this table. They were the cherries on top or I should say cookies on top to finish off this table. Check out her website to see more of her work. Her creations are absolutely amazing and the detail of each design is unreal. She went above and beyond and created two different cookies for each setting and I can't wait to work with her again and see what she creates next time.

At last, but certainly not least, I needed a fantastic photographer. Joel & Jess Photography were up for this fun challenge and their work and photos speak for themselves. Jess was amazing when shooting this for me. The room is a difficult size and then you add in the lights, furniture, decor, chairs, and background distractions. She nailed it and I'm so happy with how the photos turned out.
