Last week FOS had the sweet privilege of designing and decorating the 20th Canadian anniversary celebration for Lindt & Sprungli, the globally-recognized Swiss chocolate and confectionery company. This elegant gala at the Four Seasons hotel paid tribute to the company’s success as one of Canada’s most beloved brands of premium chocolate.
FOS created a magically colourful event space to match the significance of the occasion, using majestic hues of gold as the base.
Being the signature colour of Lindt, we loaded the guest tables with rich gold decor, including gold glitz linens, gold acrylic Victoria ghost chairs, and gold table numbers. For the centerpieces we used gold manzanita trees with white hydrangeas and gold leaves at the base, and hung hand-tied strands of Lindt’s signature Lindor truffles from the branches.
The two stages at the event were expertly draped with a custom vanilla and chocolate layered fabric backdrop, which created the perfect setting for Canadian icon Chantal Kreviazuk’s special performance.
Notwithstanding all of this decor decadence, the real show-stopping feature of the event was the incredible lighting orchestrated by the talented FOS team. A custom “Lindt” gobo logo was projected on the wall at the back of the room, while bare-branch gobo trees surrounded the room, making guests feel like they were in an enchanted Canadian forest. To top it all off, our technicians infused energy and depth into the design by rotating vibrant colour-wash lighting, paying homage to the multi-coloured Lindt chocolate products that Canadians have been indulging in for 20 years.
20 years in Canada is an important milestone for Lindt, which has become one of the nation’s favourite brands of chocolate. FOS is proud to have been able to celebrate this momentous occasion with Lindt, and we look forward to the company’s delicious future endeavors!
