What do you do when you really want to make a splash and impress your guests? How do you throw the Housewarming Party of the year? We have a few ideas on what will make an ordinary Saturday afternoon not so ordinary.
As if six swanky new homes weren’t enough, we have also invited four of Calgary’s Top Culinary Experts to provide incredible eats at The Great Harmony Housewarming Event. Every party ends up a kitchen party, so why not fill it with great food, great company and a culinary show.
Although you will have to wait until the big day to sneak a peek at the new homes, we’ll give you the inside track on our invited guests and the culinary delights being served in our Aspen Collection Kitchens.

He is co-creator and owner of acclaimed Rouge Restaurant, nestled on the banks of the Bow River in historic Inglewood.
