As if celebrating a 25th anniversary wasn’t enough, pairing on the retirement celebration of one of the biggest icons of the Canadian event Industry, Leslee Bell, Décor & More knew they had to something spectacular!The event concept became The Art of More V.25 as they began to creatively brainstorm about who they are as a company, where they started and what their clients best know them for.  A nostalgic take on their new culture, represented through Iconic pieces painted with a splash of More.

The warehouse was transformed into an upscale Streets of Toronto, one of Décor & More's signature installs, with each aisle representing a different district of the city. Chinatown was showcased with an abundance of purple lanterns strung overhead as well as other Asian inspired elements at food stations or tucked into lounges.

The team decided the best place to showcase their  history and celebrate this milestone was their own warehouse.  36,000 sq feet of inspiration.  They decided to use the aisles of their warehouse as ‘streets’ and different neighborhoods or festivals were to be represented through food stations, props, entertainment, activations and soft seating.

Over the last 25 years, The Streets of Toronto and Canada Coast to Coast have been prevailing themes, and they knew Leslee would love it, guests could relate to it and they were excited at the challenge to transform Leslee’s once ‘home away from home’ into a lifetime of event memories with a purple twist.

A true highlight of the evening, Decor & More’s very own Justin James (aka Honey Brown) brought out the cake and performed his rendition of “Diamonds” by Rihanna, surprising both Leslee and the guests as his special treat to their ‘Queen Bee’.

Décor and More has always been known for the “More” and at this once in a lifetime event they showcased just that. They engaged guests in a labyrinth of aisles and and a cornucopia of product, subtle hints of purple and honeycomb pattern.  This event represented so much to so many; their product and designs over the last 25 years; memories and memorabilia of the past, a lifetime of work and passion for an incredible woman and enchanting production technology subtly throwing a forecast to the journey ahead for Décor and More in an ever changing industry.
