Wow – what a spectacular transformation of the Vancouver Public Library Promenade. Liz Hynes (National Events Manager for Invis Canada), along with Daniel Sabina (Showmax Events), and Sara (Hummingbird Decor) created a west-coast welcome forest party, for over 350 Invis staff and friends to celebrate in.

The menu was extensive with oyster bar, eighteen (18) different canapes, 2 x 30 foot bars and more fun that you can imagine.

Feedback

“On behalf of Invis, I would like to thank you both for the top notch service you and your team provided at our events. Your staff are truly professional and efficient. The food was delicious, and very appropriate for each different event you helped plan cater for us. Thank you both again, and I look forward to working with you on our future events.

Sincerely,

– Liz Hynes, National Events Manager – Invis Canada

Savoury Chef Foods

Canada’s Northern House

Feedback

” Dear SavouryChef,

I attended a cocktail party and sampled some canapés prepared by Savoury Chef at a Northwest Territories Tourism Event with my colleagues from Outside the Cube sometime last year. After tasting the delicious appetizers the staff were serving, we couldn’t leave the building without the contact info for the catering company hosting the event. As we were contracted to do events & marketing for Canada’s Northern House (Vancouver 2010 Olympic Pavilion), we began to use them for all of our events throughout the games.

Given their patience, reliable nature, flexibility and ability to adapt to client needs, we have hired them whenever possible for everything from Bannock and Tea for hundreds of people at events open to the public, to private, high-class, elegant parties and fashion shows. Between the managers ease at dealing with clients/business requirements, and Chef Taryn’s ability to create innovative menus geared towards any type of event, the team is a pleasure to work with, and will be sure to come up with something enchanting to meet your event needs.

Their staff are well informed about the products they are serving and always accommodating. The food is always aesthetically impressive, and even better – the taste is guaranteed to whet your palette and create rave reviews amongst your guests.

Generally speaking – you cannot go wrong with this company and we are passing their name onto everyone we know!

Yours Truly,”
– Erin & the Outside the Cube Team

Hamersley House

Originally constructed between 1903-1905 as an estate home for Alfred St. George Hamersley Vancouver’s first City Solicitor. Converted to North Vancouver’s first Municipal Hospital in 1910 it was returned to residential use in 1927. In the 1960’s the building was renamed Emerald Park Lodge because it sits adjacent to the newly refurbished Emerald Park. In 1977 The City of North Vancouver designated this substantial three storey building as ‘Heritage’ to recognize its distinguished history.

Hamersley House Restored

Shelly and Derek Porter acquired the Property in April 2002 and have spent countless hours restoring Hamersley House to its original splendor. Outfitting the original estate house with turn of the century furniture and decor. The venue is available for limited dates for Weddings, Events and Meetings.
