Decor & More Inc. founder and partner Leslee Bell won the Gala Award for Lifetime Achievement at The Special Event Conference, on Jan. 18, in Chicago.
This follows the announcement that Bell will be transitioning from president and creative director into a partner and creative-consulting role.
“I am absolutely honoured and humbled,” said Bell. “Winning this award was so far beyond my wildest dreams; I stand where I am today on the shoulders of those who have been my mentors and confidantes in the industry and could not have gotten here without the help of my peers, colleagues, amazing clients, family and the wonderful and talented team of professionals at Decor & More Inc.”
In addition, Decor & More was awarded its first Special Event Gala Award in the category of Best Decor: Budget $50,000-$99,999, for the Alice in Wonderland themed Daffodil Ball, in conjunction with Alison Silcoff Events, in Montreal, for the Canadian Cancer Society.
