It’s easy to become bored planning identical events year after year, and many event planners run out of event décor ideas. Fortunately, event design is a creative endeavor. All it takes is a little preparation and flair to elicit a favorable, visceral reaction from your attendees as soon as they enter your event. Here are our top 5 event decoration ideas to leave an impression on your guests at your next gathering.
1. Food Display
Food is an art form that may leave a lasting impact. No, we’re not only talking about delivering delectable foods; we’re also talking about displaying food to spark your guests’ curiosity. Food may provide an interesting aspect to your event decorating when creatively organized. After all, as an event planner, you want your guests to remember everything about your event, from the keynote speaker to the breakout sessions to the decor! There’s a doughnut wall, a DIY bar, and more to choose from. There are a plethora of alternatives available.
For a friendly and sophisticated event appearance, let your imagination run wild with pipe and drape. Fabric may give dimension to your event’s décor by providing color. It gives the room a more personal feel while also making it look larger. If you’re on a tight budget, consider only using drape cloth on the buffet and service stations.
Drape multi-colored pennant banners or streamers from the ceiling’s center to the room’s corners to create a show-stopping effect. Small places with high ceilings are ideal for this effect. Ceiling decorations can eliminate the requirement for floor decorations, saving money and valuable storage space. Utilize a lot of lighting, colors, and projections to get the best effect (keep reading this blog to learn how to use lighting to create different visual effects)!
4. Table Decorations
You may still be creative with table decorations if you don’t have the funds to invest on crystal stemware and fine china. Consider something different, whether it’s the napkins or the centerpiece, to catch the attention of your guests. If you want to include technology into your event, a centerpiece of an iPad is a fun way to keep your guests involved. To boost visibility for people in the back, use iPads to display event information, presentations, or photographs.
5. Seating Arrangements
Have you ever considered utilizing a chair as event décor? At an event, everyone needs chairs, but that doesn’t mean they have to be placed in the same monotonous way they always are! Start by arranging the seats in a unique way to make your event stand out. To keep your guests involved, skip the typical banquet or theatre format and go for communal seating.
Choose the chair style to up the ante on event décor. Get a range of sitting alternatives, such as sofas, bar stools, and bean bag chairs, if the location allows.
