Announcing Fran Sackler Floral Designs

FranSackler_WBFW13.inddFran Sackler Floral Designs – Official Florist of The Princess Ball

I am thrilled to introduce our floral services vendor for The Princess Ball. Not only is she an extraordinarily talented florist, but I am also proud to call her a family friend. Fran Sackler, of Fran Sackler Floral Designs will be providing centrepieces for The Princess Ball, and testament to her vision, skill, and creativity, the centrepieces are truly something out of a fairy tale.

Fran Sackler Designs is a homebased studio, specializing in Weddings, Parties and Corporate Functions. With over 40 years experience in the Floral Industry, we strive to give excellent service, creativity and value for money.

Fran was trained in London, England in the prestigious West End and moved to Toronto in 1971, where she worked in The Robert Simpson Company’s Flower Shop on Richmond Street for 4 years, taking some time off to raise her son. Later work places include Greene and Wilde flowers and 12 years as in house designer for William Ashley Flowers, until she started her own business in 2004.

Fran is a recognized name in the Toronto floral scene, and I would encourage you to look at her beautiful wedding designs (including my own!) on her website at or on Facebook. Thank you, and welcome Fran!

Welcome Gold Level Sponsor, Home Trust Company

The Princess Ball is thrilled to announce our Gold Level Sponsor, Home Trust Company.

Home TrustHome Trust Company is one of Canada’s leading trust companies. They offer Canadians a wide range of financial product and service alternatives, including mortgages, Visa cards, deposits and retail credit services. We focus primarily on a unique segment of the Canadian marketplace: consumers who do not have traditional credit backgrounds and whose specific needs are not met by larger financial institutions. They cater to self-employed entrepreneurs, people with past credit issues and borrowers with equity in their property who do not qualify due to lack of provable income or little credit history.

With offices across the country from Halifax to Vancouver, and a head office in downtown Toronto, they are able to offer thousands of Canadians the alternative financial solutions they need. Whether it’s helping you to buy your first home, consolidate higher-interest loans and credit cards to save you money, or renovate your dream house, they’ve got the flexible alternative solutions to help you meet your goals.

Home Trust is honoured to be a Gold Level Sponsor of The 2014 Princess Ball, and their generous sponsorship will help children with life-threatening illnesses have their wish come true.
