When you want to make your event extra special, it’s all about the details. Your guests will be more impressed with the attention you pay to the little things than the standard components of any event. This blog from The Alleen Company gives you some suggestions for those finishing touches that can make all the difference.
The way the tables are decorated establishes the overall atmosphere of an event. Beautiful linens and eye-catching centerpieces set a festive mood. Whether you go with a bold print or a simpler solid color for your tablecloths, the tone of the event will be set from the table up.
While they only sit on the tables, centerpieces can complement the larger party theme and help to create a warm atmosphere. For instance, if you’re hosting a corporate event, a flower bouquet featuring the company’s logo colors could be a perfect way to tie it all together. Your guest’s eyes will focus on the centerpieces, so pick items that will support the event’s purpose.
When appropriate, give away the centerpieces at the end of the event. This gives your guests a festive souvenir and results in fewer things for you to deal with afterward.
Calligraphy and other hand lettering is a creative way to set the tone of your event. Pieces can not only look amazing but be functional as well. Place cards can be written in beautiful calligraphy, or art can be done on vintage mirrors, window panes, or decorative chalkboards.
Set the Mood with Lighting and Colors
You should make good use of lighting to create the perfect mood for your event. According to recent studies, bright light intensifies people’s emotional reaction to different kinds of stimulus. If you’re organizing an awards ceremony or corporate party, it would make sense to make the venue as bright as possible. Conversely, if you’re hosting a more low-key event, you’ll want dimmer lighting.
Colors are a form of nonverbal communication and the selection of the right colors can have a major effect on the mood of your event. Different colors are associated with various emotions. They can go a long way to setting the overall vibe or your event.
Red is a good color choice for parties, because it is associated with energy, excitement, power, and warmth. Blue works for business meetings, seminars, and conferences. It’s associated with intelligence, communication, trust, efficiency, and logic.
For art events or exhibitions use yellow because it stands for creativity, emotional strength, and friendliness. Green is the perfect choice for eco-friendly events because it’s associated with peace, harmony, rest, and environmental awareness.
