Celebrating the Past....

Giuseppina & Mario....
I was very excited to celebrate my parents' 40th anniversary with a surprise party that was designed as a second wedding....
Keeping the secret was the hardest part, as anyone who has thrown a surprise party knows. But the look on their faces made it all worth it. I now know what all my "brides" go through to create that special day for their family and friends.

The shows-stopper was the flowers and decor, from IXIA Flowers By Cliff, delicate yet fanciful center-piece design that extended into the whole ambiance.

The two-tier wedding cake made by Christine, from Custom Made Wedding Cakes.

I picked the linen in homage to my parents Southern Italian heritage from Have-A-Seat.
The bonboniere were the cutest crystal Holiday decorations, since my parents were married on Dec.13 1969.

Also a thanks to Enzo who draped the room, from Special Event Draping.
Last but not least, thank you Ana at West River Event Centre, the food and atmosphere was unforgettable.
