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 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.
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.
