When looking for money-saving ideas on decoration and design for an event, it’s easy to get stressed out! Don’t let it overwhelm you though. Listed below are the basic concepts for all future event planners to be successful.
Whether you’re hosting a wedding reception or birthday party, centerpieces are what every guest will notice if you are including a meal with your event. Big or small, simple or extravagant , a centerpiece decoration can make or break the meal time ambiance.
As a host, you should contemplate what type of tables will be available at the venue you choose, as well as how tall the centerpiece will be. Guests should be able to converse with each other!
Floral arrangements are a point of controversy for centerpieces as well. Almost every bride I’ve met wishes fresh flowers for their big day. However, artificial flowers can be a big money-saver if you choose to use them for your centerpieces. Your guests will hardly notice whether you are incorporating them in your centerpieces if they are enjoying a fine cooked meal.
Linens are another important decoration concept to consider. For a birthday party, the choice of linen color might not matter as much as to a soon-to-be bride. Brides, depending on the color scheme you choose, it might be more cost effective to go with black or dark linens for your reception party. Black linens with ivory or white sashes and runners always look supremely elegant!
Parties and receptions should have dance floors! However, some venues only have “lights on or lights off”. Check to see if the venue you choose offers dimming light switches as well as party lighting for the floor! Maybe even some color changing up lighting around the room to play up the party atmosphere.
Mostly every party or reception has cake. Make sure your cake is being taken care of. Some venues don’t offer any decoration display for your expensive delectable, so you should definitely inquire about where it can be placed, as well as who will cut & serve it (is your venue including servers? Or your caterer?).
Before your event, make sure you have a “mock table setting”. This means that you have a meeting with whoever is designing your party and see an exact display of how you can expect your tables to be set up for the day of your event. The last thing you want as a party planner is to be surprised with something you forgot, overlooked, or a detail that may over-do the look you’re going for! This is an important decoration tip for any host.
