There is never a shortage of occasions to celebrate. Whether it’s a family reunion, a graduation or a birthday party, why not celebrate with a bang by styling a private event your guests will love? With a plethora of options for event decor and styling themes, you can host an event you and your guests will remember for a long time.
So before you begin planning your next event, here are a few things you should consider:
❁ Styling a Private Event Takes Time
Give yourself time to plan. Planning an event requires a lot of time and effort. There are numerous options to select from, and in order to get the things you’d like, you need to make arrangements with caterers and other businesses early on.
❁ Decide on a Styling Theme
Style is important to determine first and foremost when designing an event. It is the foundation that will influence many other aspects of your event, so you’ll need to consider a styling theme, event designs and event décor that all compliment your overall theme.
❁ Don’t Do It Alone
Early on in the conception stage, it is a good time to decide whether you want to engage an event specialist from a reputable event styling company to help steer you in the right direction. With so many event styling ideas to sift through, an event stylist can help you narrow down your selection.
❁ Choosing the Perfect Venue for Your Event
The theme of your event and the venue should compliment each other. A beach themed wedding cannot take place in a church.
❁ Detail Matters
If you want guests to connect with the theme of your event, you need to ensure that the theme is reflected in every detail, as far as possible —from the invitations to the place cards and the music. It is the small things that make all the difference.
❁ Work with Your Budget
The expenses associated with your event can quickly add up. You can still reflect your styling theme on a budget. Instead of being extravagant on event décor and decorating the entire venue space, choose one or two focal points in your venue and go all out on them. Another way to cut down costs is to opt to rent event décor instead of purchasing it.
❁ Creativity Goes Beyond Event Decor
Creativity doesn’t end when styling a private event. You can get creative with your menu as well. Instead of serving typical hors-d’oeuvres, think of a menu that is unique and tailored to your liking.
