The event took place at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre (222 Bremner Blvd.) at the north side on the lower level of the constitutional hall.

The rentals, food and staff arrived promptly at 3:00 PM, with the cocktail reception beginning at 6:00 PM for over 500 guests. Guests were treated to an appetizing assortment of hors d’oeuvres, which included our “Ahi Tuna Taco Presented on Lime Wheels”, “Butternut Squash & Bartlett Pear Soup”  and our “Pulled Beef Brisket on a Fresh Brioche” 

Below are some of the hors d’oeuvres that we served throughout the evening:
