Pantone 2018 Colour of the Year - Ultra Violet

Pantone 2018 Colour of the Year - Ultra Violet

Pantone has released it’s 2018 Colour of the Year! Ultra Violet is taking the design world by storm. Here’s an excerpt from the Pantone website…

“Complex and contemplative, Ultra Violet suggests the mysteries of the cosmos, the intrigue of what lies ahead, and the discoveries beyond where we are now. The vast and limitless night sky is symbolic of what is possible and continues to inspire the desire to pursue a world beyond our own.

Historically, there has been a mystical or spiritual quality attached to Ultra Violet. The color is often associated with mindfulness practices, which offer a higher ground to those seeking refuge from today’s over-stimulated world. The use of purple-toned lighting in meditation spaces and other gathering places energizes the communities that gather there and inspire connection.”

We carry a wide selection of linen styles and colours including shades of Ultra Violet. Come visit us to see the possibilities!

It's Never Too Early To Start Planning Christmas Dinner!

It's Never Too Early To Start Planning Christmas Dinner!

Being midway through November, the patio furniture gets put away, the Christmas lights and decorations are starting to go up and the shopping lists are being prepared but often the meal plans get put aside until later in December. With family coming and lots to prepare, it’s wise to start the planning early for that fabulous Christmas dinner.

At McLean Sherwood, the holiday season is a busy time. The further into December we get, the more orders we process and availability can become an issue. So call us early to begin your rental booking. If you need to make changes along the way, we will do our best to accommodate you! Keep in mind that most of our dinnerware is rented by the dozen, so whether you have 16 or 22 guests you’re still covered with 2 dozen place settings!

So avoid the rush and book early to avoid missing out on the items and styles you want!
Cheers!

It's Summertime! Get Outside and Party!

It's Summertime! Get Outside and Party!

It’s that time again! Time to get outside and enjoy the summer sun, green grass and cool breezes. It’s also a great time to plan events that keep everyone out of your house! Be it a birthday, anniversary, shower, wedding or simply a gathering of friends and neighbours, it’s always nicer to entertain outside. But of course you can’t always count on the weatherman to come through for you. That’s what we’re here for. Rent a tent for your next event. Aside from the obvious of keeping everyone dry despite the occasional r**n (we don’t say that word around here!), it will also provide guests with some refreshing shade on sunny days.
And if you’re debating over a hall vs home for your event, the greatest selling feature for having a tent at home is the lack of any time restrictions for your party. We set up at least a day before and take down the day after, allowing you to party through the night!
Give us a call to set up a site visit at no obligation. We’ll show you what you can do!

Never Too Early To Plan Valentine's Day!

Never Too Early To Plan Valentine's Day!

Brittany’s Blog
Two weeks until Valentine’s Day, have you made plans?

Gentlemen, this one is for you. If she says she doesn’t care about Valentine’s Day plans, I can almost guarantee she is lying. So I have come up with a few tips that will make Valentine’s Day simple, but thoughtful.

1. Buy flowers. Around Valentine’s Day flowers are extremely easy to find and a lot of grocery stores have simple bouquets for not too expensive. Pick them up on your way home from work or even the night before so she has something pretty to look at.
2. Try cooking. You don’t have to make reservations at an expensive restaurant or make a gourmet meal. Try spaghetti, it is easy and quick with few dishes (you can even rent dishes so neither of you has to do them), and then pick up a bottle of champagne or wine and enjoy an evening in.
3. Write to her. Let’s be real gifts get expensive, but words can mean so much more. It doesn’t have to be a ten page essay or sound formal and sophisticated. Pick out a blank card from your local Shoppers Drug Mart and just write down what you love about her.

Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be complicated, honestly it shouldn’t be. Everyday is a good day to tell someone you love them, but people like to mark February 14th with a little something.

Ladies, this doesn’t get you off the hook! He deserves something too, but you probably want to skip the flowers when looking for a gift for him.
