AURA AND WISEMAN UNITE AT THE AGO

What a wonderful week! Despite this last burst of winter weather we are super pumped for our upcoming creative projects and events in and around the city. 

Today we're talking about an extremely special event that is happening soon in Toronto. Since February, the Art Gallery of Ontario has been holding a phenomenal exhibit entitled, "Mitchell/Riopelle: Nothing In Moderation", about two artists and romantic lovers.


Joan Mitchell and Jean Paul Riopelle

"This exhibition encourages visitors to compare and contrast major paintings by Mitchell and Riopelle in order to show how their relationship impacted their respective techniques and styles during the twenty-four years they were together."

Drum roll please! Aura has partnered with our extremely talented friends over at Wiseman Creative for a unique and conceptual piece of art to be displayed for public viewing on Friday, May 4th, 2018 at the AGO. 

We can't give much more information than that but we will tell you that this piece is a labour of love and we can't wait for you all to see it! 


The Art Gallery of Ontario has been a cultural staple in the city of Toronto since it opened its doors in 1914. They house over 90,000 works of art and it is widely believed to be the most distinguished and respected art museum in North America. 



The ROM
100 Queens Park

The stunning structure has undegone renovations over the years and is internationally renowened for its 40 galleries and 6 million piece collection of everything from dinosaurs, minerals and worldly historical and cultural artifacts.

LIGHTING UP THE 76th HRPA CONFERENCE IN TORONTO

It’s mid week in the big smoke and definitely a little chilly but no matter because Aura Effect is still feeling hot from an amazing event we were privileged to be a part of last week. It was a dazzling 3 day event for the Human Resources Professionals Association, HRPA, in the Metro Toronto Convention Centre with a grand networking party in the Soco Ballroom at the Delta Hotel, 75 Lower Simcoe St.


Aura Effect was in attendance as guests of DT Floral & Decor who were one of the conferences sponsors. 2018 marked the 76th year for the HRPA tradeshow, Canada’s largest Human Resource Conference. This year over 4,500 HR and business professionals were in attendance. There were three days of key note speakers, networking sessions, lunches and a wonderful evening gala with numerous HR and professional delegates.

This Canadian conference is so vital to all business owners as it gives them a perfect chance to showcase their product or service to; domestic and international business owners, suppliers and buyers. Its also a great opportunity to connect through networking, build brand awareness and recognition as well as gaining insight into the future of business while checking out what your competition might be up to.

Aura Effect was pleased to provide all of the LED glow furniture for the event. We supplied LED Couches, bars, benches and tables while the exquisite LED dance floor and entertainment were provided by DT Floral & Décor.

Aura Effect would like to sincerely thank DT Floral & Decor for inviting us as your guest and to the HRPA for allowing us to outfit the conference and networking party with some LED glow. We had an absolutely terrific time and gained tons of knowledge and insight into other Canadian businesses while making connections to extend our glow reach. Already looking forward to next year in 2019! 

Call us for all of your LED glow party and decor needs Toronto! We're waiting for you. 

Until next week, 
Stay warm!

WEDDING SZN IS ON IT'S WAY, STAY AHEAD OF THESE 2018 TRENDS!

The premise of a wedding almost never changes. Two people that love each other and commit to spending the rest of their days together watching Netflix and chilling . However, the art of a wedding is constantly changing. Every year we hear what's in and what's out in order for couples to stay on or ahead of the trends.
Today we're dishing on four wedding elements that will most likely see big shifts in 2018.

COMPLETELY CUSTOM INVITATIONS
It’s true what they say, first impressions last the longest. 2018 will see couples opting for extravagant hand painted, beaded or even embroidered wedding invitations. Clearly this option is not cost effective when outsourced so you may want to break out the art box.

HANGING FLORALS
Florals are still such a large part of wedding décor at the moment and right now it’s all about the floating florals. Hanging upside down in planter baskets, beautifully wrapped & displayed around rings, wreaths or custom made installations. Of course there are some small challenges such as building structure and room temperature to keep the florals fresh. Consult with your venue to see if their space will accommodate hanging florals.



UNIQUE FOOD & BEVERAGE
2018 will see couples steer away from sit down dinners and opt for more passed appetizers, food stations and even food trucks. Dwindling are the days of the sit down, four course wedding meal. Your guests want to dance, interact, drink and laugh, not be confined to a table waiting for the next course to arrive.
You can also opt for a more creative dessert rather than the tired wedding cake. Try a donut wall, ice cream station or cotton candy/ gourmet popcorn station.

LED CENTREPIECES 
They'll definitely command attention and give you that WOW factor you're looking for. Big, small, short or tall; LED glowing centrepieces could be the perfect way to showcase your delectably decorated tables. Choose from 16 different colour display options, add florals or custom vinyls with table numbers, guests' names or images.



The glow doesn't stop there. We have LED bars, cruiser tables for cocktail hour and even jumbo glow planters for some potted plants and greenery to line your entrance.

Custom design your first day as a married couple together and with our help! Call Robyn at 647.780.2917 today for your free creative consultation!


Happy Planning, Toronto!
The Aura Effect Team.

DON'T SLEEP ON YOUR EVENT PLANNING, GET A JUMP ON YOUR PARTY TODAY!!

It’s never too early to start thinking about your upcoming events. Because of the sporadic bone chilling cold lately, hosting may be the furthest thing from your mind but take it from us, events have a way of sneaking up on you.
Today Aura Effect is dishing some unique ideas for upcoming events and milestones that you may be involved in.

VALENTINES
Whether you love it or loathe it Valentines is big business. Gather your pro or anti Valentines day crowd for a night to remember. Dinner, drinks and dancing all under the romantic illumination of our LED glow furniture and décor. If you’re more anti than pro we're thinking some anti Cupid and “love stinks” vinyls to complete your vision.

PROM
Help your on-the-edge of adulthood children and their friends celebrate in style by renting some LED glow furniture and décor for their pre and post prom party. If you’re the type of parents who will most likely be hosting a throng of kids after the dance is over do it in glow party style. Illuminate your backyard with glow balls, glowing couches and chairs and perhaps a glowing table full of teenager fuel (burgers, nachos and poutine).

Customize the glow décor with PROM 2018, your almost graduates initials, nickname or any other embarrassing moniker you can think of. Maybe some baby pictures? The possibilities are endless and the photos will be priceless for years to come.

Check out this LED setup by Rockpaper Events. Stunning display of our LED tables. 

GRADUATION
A pivotal point in any young persons life and essentially the beginning of their adulthood. Send them into adult abyss with a glow party to remember. Since grad ceremonies predominantly take place in the spring and early summer our LED stock is ideal for a backyard celebration due to its weatherproof exterior. Did I mention all of our LED furniture and décor is equipped with Bluetooth for your party playlists? Perfect for entertaining angsty teens.

We can light up any event! A picture of our LED lounge couch and LED ice bucket table at a recent birthday party. Done again by the lovely and talented Rockpaper Events team. 


We can never stress enough the importance of making your event your own through creative and unique décor. Set yourself apart from everyone else with our help! Our event planner Robyn is an event master and relishes in any opportunity to help create one of a kind celebrations with our LED illuminated furniture and décor.

Don’t sleep on your party planning. Set it in stone today and let the excitement commence! Until next week, Toronto, take care and party on!
