When I was asked to plan Drake’s birthday, I had about 4 days to come up with something equal parts intimate, original, and memorable. The guest list was a mix of both family and friends, so I needed a design that would work for the right group. I chose one of Susur Lee’s restaurants and incorporated an Asian inspired menu. Next came my idea for custom Ovo bento boxes and the chopsticks we created especially to celebrate Drake. Guests enjoyed a mix of desserts – boxes of d-oVo- nuts, a tiered cake featuring his signature owl logo, and black Popsicles with gold “6” ‘s on them, representing “The6ix” – a nickname for Toronto popularized by Drake.

Every time we collaborate with Drake on an event, it’s such a pleasure to be able to take his brand and represent it within our work. There really is nothing as flattering as being hired by someone who has quite literally attended hundreds of parties. Happy birthday Drake!!

Celebrate Beautifully,
