Seneca’s Inspired Spaces

Seneca students don’t wait for inspiration to strike… they create it! On February 21, Seneca’s Event Management – Event and Exhibit Design students competed in Inspired Spaces, the program’s annual tabletop challenge. Students were tasked with creating an event for a fictitious client and designed everything from the ground up, including the venue, theme, caterer, florals décor and more. Students also designed sample tabletops, which they showcased to professionals from the event industry.

“This event is possible through the hard work of Seneca students and faculty, and the generosity of industry partners: Event Rental Group, ILEAToronto, Presidential Gourmet, Artam Design, Jackie O, The Butler Did It, and Canadian Special Events,” says John MacBride, Program Co-ordinator of Seneca’s popular program.

Mya Scott received the Gold Award for her Fashion Show Lunch for Gucci Pre-Fall 2018. Her tabletop reflected the edgy and often mismatched patterns that make up the Pre-Fall collection.

Vivian Leung received the Silver Award for her fan meeting for Korean idol Suzy Bae. Her tabletop included dozens of candles and miniature flower vases in a soft palette of mauves and pinks. Images of Suzy were scattered across the table as takeaways for the guests.

Alia Sallam won Bronze for her Hogwarts-themed anniversary party. Her tablescape of candles, marauder maps, potions and horcruxes injected fun and frivolity into this social occasion.

Danielle Webster received the Industry Choice award for her UndenNorld Wedding. Her lush and dark tabletop was based on the greek myth of Hades and Persephone, and was the perfect choice for her alternative couple: the groom is a tattoo artist and the bride is a fashion buyer.
