Andrew Richard Designs' "Remember Summers Like This...Stay Foolish" Summer Party

The other night, I attended Andrew Richard Designs' annual summer-themed party, "Remember Summers Like This... Stay Foolish" at the design duo's fabulous showroom and event space. Toronto's finest media darlings, socialites and luxe furniture connoisseurs lounged on exquisite outdoor furniture, mingled over spiked lemonades and nibbled on gourmet grub by some of TO's best caterers including: Art of Food, E11even Restaurant, The Food Dudes, Encore Catering, Daniel et Daniel, Toben and many more.
Atrium area with carnival games and retro lemonade stand

The venue's gorgeous Atrium space was transformed into a mini summer carnival where party goers were given chances to win fun prizes by playing an old-fashioned ring toss or shooting a star target with a cork gun. I played the ring toss and walked away with a giant stuffed Murakami-esque flower! How fun right?!!
Upstairs Loft space transformed into a glam evening patio party
After noshing on a variety of delicious and delightful bites, I made my way upstairs to the Loft space and discovered where the REAL party had moved to. Bellosound had the entire room jumping to classic R&B and hip hop tracks like Q Tip's Vibrant Thing, Missy's Get UR Freak On, MJ's The Way You Make Me Feel and more. I got my groove on into the late evening and basked in the fabulosity that Andrew Richard Designs is renowned for. This party was the perfect start to an amazing summer and it was definitely one of the best parties I've been to this year! Check out my pics below to see more of the gourmet goodness that guests enjoyed.
