Here at Trix & Trumpet we really like parties. All kinds of parties. Birthdays, Anniversaries, Weddings, Showers. Whatever the occasion, we get giddy and happy just thinking about it.

But there is something we like even more than parties and that’s helping YOU create the party that you want.

Maybe it’s that second opinion, or real-world advice. Maybe you’re stumped on something or need direction. Or maybe you just don’t have time for everything (you are only one person!). We’ve done it all, and we’re here to help however you need us.

Located in Burlington, we work with clients throughout the GTA on any and all party elements (if you can think it, we can help with it).

Not in the area? No worries, that’s what technology is for. We happily connect with clients virtually so that you can get the information you need, when you need it.

But, what’s with the name? Quite simply, you get all the insider info to make you, and your party, shine.
