Nationwide DAVIDsTEA Party & Pop Up

Posted on

Tea for two? How about tea for all of Canada!

DAVIDsTEA spread some holiday cheer with their first nationwide DavidsTeaParty! For one hour, tea lovers could visit any Canadian DAVIDsTEA store for a free cup of tea. The event supported Me To We, with $1 donated for every cup of tea served.

DAVIDsTEA also held a special live stream pop up Downtown Toronto, hosted by ETalk reporter Liz Trinnear! The event was broadcasted live on the DAVIDsTEA Facebook page for fans across Canada, drawing 16,000 views.

Guests enjoyed their cozy drinks while listening to a beautiful performance by French Canadian, Jonathan Roy! The DAVIDsTEA pop up also offered guests a Rafiki workshop, where they could bead their own bracelets.

The pop up offered a variety of delicious DAVIDsTEA blends, including Santa’s Secret, Caramel Shortbread, Matcha Matsu and, of course, the signature, Me To We.

We saw a lot of guests stop by throughout the afternoon, but no one left without capturing a memory with the digital photo booth!

DAVIDsTEA Party was a great success as people across Canada came together to enjoy good tea for a charitable cause! Iconic DAVIDsTEA cups could be seen dispersing around the city after the pop up closed up shop. It was a great experience to see Canada coming together! 🙂

On Wednesday August 24th, President of NKPR, Natasha Koifman opened her doors to entertainment industry influencers, tastemakers and media for her agency’s annual Film Festival Countdown party. In partnership with MEC, Canada’s go-to place for outdoor gear, know-how and inspiration, the scene was primed beautifully for guests to enjoy good times outside. Guests chatted amongst an illuminated high-performance bicycle installation, while braver guests posed for selfies in the pool with MEC’s 17ft canoe! As always, the poolside venue was looking its best thanks to Caspar Haydar.

Kicking off Toronto’s film festival season, the annual event also featured a preview of NYC-based artist Peter Tunney’s upcoming charitable exhibit that will be hosted at the NKPR IT House during the festival. 50% of the sales of Tunney’s work will be donated to Artists for Peace and JusticeTunney’s “Don’t Panic” piece set the backdrop for Philadelphia Flyers defenceman, Mike del Zotto, who was the event’s DJ for the evening.

Guests indulged in savoury bites from partners including Emma’s Eatery, Panago Pizza, McDonald’s and a sweet table from Cakes by Mickey. To toast, guests sipped on Apothic Wines, enjoyed bubbles and popcorn from Henkell, beer from Muskoka Breweries and stayed hydrated with Flow WaterPage Activations captured guests in action as they fete the pre-festival celebrations.
