McLean Sherwood and Covid 19

Posted: Mar 16, 12:38 PM Permanent Link

There is a host of uncertainty around the world right now concerning Covid 19. The phrase “in an abundance of caution” has been heard over and over again. At McLean Sherwood we are taking a similar approach. Along with extra care measures being taken in the cleanliness and sanitation of our warehouse and equipment, we have also decided to close on Saturdays both our Brampton and Orangeville offices to allow our staff to be at home more during this outbreak. We don’t know how long this will last, but we hope to resume Saturday hours as soon as we can. We are still open Monday thru Friday from 9am until 5pm in Brampton and 10am until 5pm in Orangeville. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes.
We wish everyone good health and safety through these trying days.

Keeping Our Cool!

Introducing our newest rental inventory item – the Evaporating Cooling System. It may be cold outside right now, but it gonna get hot! This unit is used to provide refreshingly cool air to tent functions or outdoor events. A 36” fan draws the hot air through a water soaked filter that cools it before circulating through the tent. So this summer, before it gets too hot, considering renting “cool”!

Christmas Is Coming!!

We’ve turned the corner on December 2018 and it’s time to start thinking about that turkey dinner! As with most Canadian Christmas traditions, we gather together with family around the table and enjoy a delicious meal to celebrate the holidays. Many times it’s turkey, but you may also see ham, chicken, pheasant and even salmon!

In all cases, you have many mouths to feed and the issues of where everyone will sit and “do we have enough place settings for each invited guest?”, will pop up. Here at McLean Sherwood we can help with that. Extra tables and chairs so everyone has a place to sit and matching china and silverware regardless of how many. We can even supply you with a beautiful Christmas tablecloth or runner to complete the table. Around here we say; “You bring the food and the people, and we can provide the rest!”

And the best part is always….We do the dishes! Just pack everything up in the containers they came in and we’ll pick it up dirty. No more spending extra time in the kitchen washing dishes. Go enjoy your guests knowing that it’s all looked after at our end. Give us a call to see all that we can do for you!

Want a wedding like Harry and Meghan? Sometimes less is more!

Want a wedding like Harry and Meghan? Sometimes less is more!

What a stunning day for the royal newlyweds. The weather was perfect, the guests looked lovely, and the loving gaze between Harry and Meghan was undeniably perfect. The perfect fairy tale wedding, but is this attainable as a commoner? Here’s what you need to put together a royal wedding of your own.

Let’s start with the invites. Harry and Meghan had simple, yet elegant invites. The eight-by-six white cards had elegant black writing with the Prince of Wales Three-Feathered Badge in gold. Invited do not have to be over the top, but as simple as white cardstock, black lettering and a little sparkle just for fun.

The wedding party looked a little different at the latest royal wedding. Meghan did not want to choose over her many close friends, and instead of a maid of honor chose a couple friends on the younger side. This wedding party consisted of flower girls and page boys (and Prince William as the best man). This group of ten children included the boys of Meghan’s close friend Jessica Mulroney and her new niece and nephew Prince George and Princess Charlotte. For a wedding like theirs, your bridal party would have to be on the small side, pun intended.

This next feature may be a little harder to come by. The royal choice of transportation is a horse drawn carriage, quite a statement to the standard dressed up cars or limos most of choose. The service can be difficult to find and will not be cheap, but to match this royal wedding it requires a little parade through town in a stunning black and red accented carriage.

Meghan’s more sleek and simple style made for a lovely wedding day. Her tiara stood out against the crisp, flat white dress. Eyes were drawn to the loving faces of Harry and Meghan, rather than over the top decorations. The black gospel choir echoed through the pews of St. George’s Church. Despite the resources attainable for such a wedding, Meghan stuck to her traditional, conservative style for a unique and stunning day.

Congratulations Harry and Meghan! Looking forward to some details from the royal honeymoon.
