Toowoomba Event Planner

BRAND LAUNCH: Round Square Marketing

“Remember your brand is what people say about you when you’re not in the room...”

We were thrilled to be invited to design and style the Round Square Marketing brand launch event at Fitzy's in Toowoomba. Highlighting some incredible local talent, we took inspiration from the business' new brand - a sleek, more contemporary take on their original design. 

As Round Square evolved, they identified the need to better represent their services in the marketplace which after 4 years in operation had changed immensely. 

The brand was modernised - delivering a dynamic, corporate and creative feel. 

We built on the brands colour palette of moody purple, pungent green and a fierce fuchsia. Combining modern elements with slim lines, cut acrylic finishes, metallic gold accents and an abundance of luxurious florals.  

Guests enjoyed a fun-inspired taco station, signature cocktail with branded swizzle stick and a lavish dessert station featuring customised macaroons.

“I engaged Annie to do the styling for my annual Ovarian Cancer Charity Event - Teal for Grandma. Annie came to me with a vision and design concept and from our first meeting until the pack up of the event she made what seemed like a daunting job to me a breeze. Her attention to detail and WOW factor was just what our event needed…”

Dîner en Blanc is coming to Toowoomba!

Toowoomba will host the internationally-recognised event – Le Dîner en Blanc - later this year. The popular ‘all white-themed’ Parisian-style pop up picnic marks its 30th anniversary this year and will be held for the first time in the Garden City.

Le Dîner en Blanc - Toowoomba hosts Annie Glover (Blue Willow), Lauren Hope (Round Square Marketing) and Karen McKinley (The Punch Group) decided it would be exciting to bring a world-class event to the region and help boost tourism.

“It was a fairly rigorous process to secure the event for the region, but we think it’s a fantastic coup to bring the world phenomenon to Toowoomba,” says Le Diner en Blanc Toowoomba co-host Ms Lauren Hope.

Le Diner en Blanc Toowoomba co-host Annie Glover says Toowoomba’s strong sense of community is closely aligned with Le Dîner en Blanc philosophy.

“Le Dîner en Blanc captures the spirit of friendship, glamour, and European elegance.  We love the history and anticipation of Le Dîner en Blanc events around the world and are excited to bring a little piece of Europe to Toowoomba, which will be the 10th Australian city to join the Le Diner en Blanc family,” she says.

“We are passionate about Toowoomba, what it has to offer and look forward to showcasing our beautiful city on the world stage,” says Ms Glover.

Today, more than 120,000 guests in close to 80 cities in 30 countries celebrates the event.

“While elegance and etiquette are important components of the event, there are no VIPS and everyone will come together as equals to share a common goal – to have fun and enjoy friendships old and new,” explains Le Diner en Blanc Toowoomba co-host Ms McKinley.

To uphold Le Dîner en Blanc’s tradition, guests around the world must dress head-to-toe in white and are requested to bring their own portable tables, white chairs, white table linens, tableware, and a gourmet meal.  A large part of the excitement surrounding Le Dîner en Blanc is the secrecy surrounding the event location, which is kept under wraps until the last moment. Guests are given a departure point when they purchase their tickets.

REAL WEDDING: Kristy & Dan, Gabbinbar Homestead

In the event industry it's quite common for a lot of clients to shy away from a Winter celebration - particularly those local to Toowoomba as we all know how unpredictable the weather can be!

But when Kristy & Dan set a date in July for their Gabbinbar Homestead nuptials we knew it was the perfect opportunity to play on the incredible beauty and intimacy that a short Winter's day bestows. 

Creatively our imaginations were immediately drawn to these elements - glass, white, grey, candlelight, candlelight and more candlelight!

Luxury oozed with the crispest of white blooms, showcased in their natural glory using glass vase ware and linear stem work. 

Place settings continued with the grey, white and glass palette combining ornate edged glass flatware, grey French linen napkins and hand lettered acrylic place cards. 

The couples cozy ceremony called for an abundance of candlelight and rose petals adorning the aisle. While their garden party continued the intimate feel with lounge suit areas for guests to enjoy the last of the afternoon sun.

Our obsession with candlelight for our couple continued inside to the candlelit wall that guests admired featuring over 100 glass cylinder pillar candles.

We felt so lucky to be a part of this lovely couples special day, featuring their gorgeous three children. We wish you all so much love on your journey in life together x

LOVE LETTERS: What others have to say

"Where do I start? I contacted Annie with what I thought was a clear styling vision for our wedding day. However, the more we chatted the more I realised my styling prowess wasn't overly refined. Not to worry though because Annie took the vague brief that I gave her and turned it into something better than I could have ever imagined..." - Mrs Doust

REAL WEDDING: Sophie & Jay, Adora Downs

Our team were excited to be working at the charming Adora Downs for the very first time for Sophie & Jay’s big day. We had heard so much about the venue and how relaxed guests felt among the surroundings. Not only was it the perfect choice for our couples Summer time nuptials but also a true reflection of the couple themselves – a winning choice from the get go!

Sophie was such a sweet-hearted Bride, who the details didn’t really matter to too much, as long as it all led to her fiancé Jay becoming her husband. This of course would be the case on the 45 degree plus day in December, while we worked to pull together all the intricacies behind the scenes for the special couple.

The fascinating timber lined barn lent itself perfectly to the rich tones of red and gold, paired back with mentions of blush throughout. Taper candles delivered an antique touch, while bountiful florals softened the raw surroundings.

The Bride wore a beautifully textured lace gown with a beautiful flower crown from Echo & Indigo. While our unstructured bouquets worked effortlessly against the gorgeous pattern of the Bridesmaids gowns.

The newlyweds delivered one hell of a party, finished ever so deliciously with a four-tier cheese wheel cake before guests retired to their eclectic cabins on site in the wee-hours of the morning.

A huge thank you again to Mr & Mrs Driese for having us – what a blast it was! A x
