This Midsummer Night’s Dream themed event took place on the Great Lawn at VanDusen Botanical Gardens in Vancouver. Already surrounded by the natural beauty of the gardens, Greenscape had to make sure the guests were transported to an even more magical enchanted garden for their high profile dinner event. As they entered the dining area, to our guests left, we placed a 10’ tall bronze fountain that bubbled gently with the scent of fresh, fragrant irises filling the air from the lavish floral garden we arranged at its base. To their right, impressive 30’ tall artificial towering white cherry blossom trees flanked both sides of a 60’ x 30’ stage. All of the stage and lighting trusses were dripping with lavender, purple, and white florals and greenery. Four faux willow trees with replica old growth trunks were placed around the perimeter of the guest tables to create a more intimate and closed in sense of space. As the sun slowly sunk over the horizon, the transformation of the space was truly magical as the inspiring lighting design took shape and the stage performers filled the night with song.
While the guests were enjoying the evening entertainment, our team worked quickly and quietly to stake 300 shepherds hooks with votive lanterns to light a path back down the hill to guide the guests safely back to the main entrance of the Garden.
