TORONTO, ON, DECEMBER 7 - Fleurs de Villes, Canada’s globally renowned cultivator of bespoke floral events presents their new show in Toronto’s Bloor-Yorkville neighbourhood with Fleurs de Villes NOËL from December 7th-11th, 2022.

Fleurs de Villes NOËL is a free public event where visitors can walk the self-guided trail of discovery with over 30+ holiday-themed floral installations. Highlights of the trail include visits to the newly opened W Toronto with a floral cocktail offering in the hotel’s sixth floor Living Room, the Manulife Centre’s transformation into a floral Winter Wonderland with hidden winter-themed critters throughout their installations, and a high-fashion Mr. and Mrs. Claus mannequin. Visitors can also look forward to the elegant Louis Roederer champagne mannequin at The Hazelton Hotel’s ONE Restaurant, a giant floral bear welcoming shoppers to Holt Renfrew, the Park Hyatt Toronto with a fantastical Nutcracker ballet mannequin, and a special floral cocktail menu at Joni restaurant.
