Last Week I attended the CDECA Annual General Meeting of Members and Awards Celebration at The
Estates of Sunnybrook - The Vaughan Estate, on Bayview Avenue in Toronto.  What a beautiful venue!

We enjoyed a wonderful breakfast, fabulous lunch and enlightened workshops.  The first workshop was presented by PPG Pittsburgh Paints on "Colour Trends 2010/2011"  followed by "Designing Reality - Change your Perspective - Change the World" with keynote speaker Dan Trommater courtesy of Hunter Douglas.  Great presentations by both speakers.

Following the presentations we had a very special Tribute to
one of our decorators who we recently lost to cancer -
Ingrid Kyranis.  Ingrid is missed by all those who have
known  and worked with her.  The entire room did the
"pink gloves" dance in honour of Ingrid and there was a slide
presentation of many events in which Ingrid was involved.
Our table decor was "pink" with many pink gloves
surrounding a floral arrangement like a wreath!  How clever!

Once we had been treated to some desert, we got down to the business of our Awards Presentations.  Our Decorators/Designers are incredibly talented and should be really proud of themselves!
