What People are saying about McLean-Sherwood:

“Thank you for the outstanding job you did for us on Aug 6th. The tent, flooring, dance floor, etc. were magnificent. You and your team worked so hard to make sure the evenings events flowed so smoothly and looked so good.”
Nalini Watsa – Erin

“…thanking you for your outstanding support and response to our tornado dilemna on the Friday, prior to our Highland Games. In this day of dwindling service & response to emergencies, your actions at that time were exemplary. Had you not come through, we certainly would have been in a tight spot.”
Bill Miller – President, Georgetown Highland Games

It’s time to put some of the rumours out there to rest.
YES, the building we’re operating out of is up for sale. NO, WE ARE NOT CLOSING DOWN! We continue to operate as normal until such a time as someone tells us we can’t stay. At that point, if a move is necessary, we will be sure to let everyone know!
YES, we are holding an auction for some of our EXCESS INVENTORY. Some items have run their rental course and are less popular than they used to be and some are simply pieces we’ve collected up through the years. The online auction takes place on Tuesday, April 6 with viewing on Monday April 5. Check out the items at

Posted: Dec 29, 03:40 PM Permanent Link

With the recent lockdown measures taking place in Ontario, we have chosen to take a well deserved rest and close our doors for a couple of weeks. We will re-open again on Monday January 11, 2021 at 10am. At that time we look forward to a healthier Ontario, where people can celebrate together again. In the meantime, please check out our site and plan for greater things to come. We will continue to provide excellence in service and quality for all your party and event needs!

Happy New Year! We wish you all hope and prosperity for 2021!

Just because we're in a pandemic, doesn't mean you have to do the dishes!

Just because we're in a pandemic, doesn't mean you have to do the dishes!

We understand that right now, things are a bit unpredictable and people can be feeling uneasy about gathering together over Christmas. That’s why we’ve changed the way we do things this holiday season. Through December, we are offering packaged place settings that rent per person – not by the dozen as usual. So if you have 9 guests, you only rent 9 place settings. If it’s 13, you get 13. The other unique thing about these settings, is that each one comes individually wrapped and ready to go on the table – sanitized and sealed for your protection and the protection of your guests!
We offer 2 packages – the RED package includes a dinner plate, dessert plate, dinner knife, dinner fork, dessert fork, 12oz wine glass and a napkin of your colour!
Our GREEN package includes all of the fore-mentioned, plus a soup plate, soup spoon and water goblet.
And, with each rental of more than $25.00 (pre-tax), you can receive the FREE RENTAL of a 16” oval turkey platter to match!
Large or small, we can help make your holiday gatherings special – and as always, leave the dishwashing to us!

Covid-19 Update November 2

Posted: Nov 2, 09:32 AM Permanent Link

Needless to say it’s been a unique summer in 2020! Congratulations to all the brides and grooms who went ahead with down scaled celebrations! We saw reductions from 120 people down 25 or even 12 in some cases. The advantage in all this is that it allowed many couples to reduce their budgets and still make it much fancier than originally planned!

Now that November has come, we are forced once again to reduce our operating hours. Unfortunately, our Orangeville office has been temporarily closed, however in Brampton we are still open Monday thru Friday from 10am until 2pm and closed Saturday and Sunday. In-store visits are through pre-arranged appointments but you can still speak with a consultant on the phone at 1-888-253-0811 or through email –

The holiday season may look very different this year, but we are always here to help with ideas and products to make your smaller gatherings extra special! we look forward to hearing from you!
