Caspar Haydar

Host: Caspar Haydar

Australia native Caspar Haydar can be described in many ways, but perhaps the simplest word would be – effortless. In all that he does, whether designing flowers for a wedding, catering a private gathering, producing events or building installations, Caspar’s innate sense of style shines through. His natural ability to build and craft things from an array of materials is what allows Caspar to take something from conception to completion and sets him apart from the pack. We don’t know how, but when Elle and Yolanda suggest building risers and platters for a sweet table out of vases and picture frames, Caspar makes it happen in the most beautiful way! When they ask for manzanita branches to hang from the ceiling and be covered in twinkling lights, Caspar delivers!

With a background in fashion and event production, Caspar made his mark in Sydney while working for the famous Home Supperclub where he spearheaded some of their largest events and entertainment experiences. Wanting to broaden his horizons, Caspar traveled between London, Paris, Milan, Tokyo and New York before making a final landing in Toronto where he was quickly snatched up by some of the city’s leading event spaces.

When the dynamo that is Elle Daftarian came into Caspar’s life, everything changed. Almost overnight, Elle and Caspar founded Madison8 Event and Flower Laboratories – a full service luxury event and design firm - and experienced immediate success. When cake decorator Yolanda Gampp showed up on the scene, Sweet Fix was born, and Caspar sunk his teeth into designing elaborate sweet tables that weren’t just delicious, but a true dessert experience. Shortly after, the doors of Petite & Sweet opened, giving both Madison8 and Sweet Fix a home and Caspar a place to work and entertain their numerous clients. Anyone can have a big idea and Caspar is the one to call if you want to bring it to life!
