Event décor and theme play an important role in creating unforgettable and immersive experiences. They set the tone, raise emotions, and leave a lasting impression on attendees.

A carefully crafted décor and theme not only enhance the aesthetics but also convey the purpose and message of the event.

In today’s social media-driven world, event decor and themes can also play a role in promoting social sharing. Eye-catching, Instagram-worthy decor elements encourage attendees to capture and share their experiences online, extending the event’s reach and impact.

  1. Centre Pieces

Centre Pieces serve as eye-catching focal points, enhancing the overall visual appeal of the event. Here is some inspiration:

  • Let’s get the local schools & center’s involved! 

We suggest inviting local children to participate in a creative project painting themed jam-jars to go with the theme of your event. This activity not only promotes inclusivity but you could also provides a chance to reward the winning participant with art materials.

  • Seasonal Flowers

Embrace each season by sourcing centre pieces from local garden center’s, infusing the event with a touch of seasonal charm while supporting community businesses. These centre pieces can then be raffled off to a member of each table, or donated to charity.

  • Lanterns

A lantern centerpiece can have an effect on your event’s ambiance. Placed at the center of tables, the addition of candles or fairy lights can add a more autumn-winter feel. Seasonal flowers in Spring and Summer bring a bright and blissful effect. Both options would becomes a focal point for your participants.

  1. Lighting

Lighting colour has a big impact on the atmosphere of an event. Warm colours like red and amber can create a cozy and intimate feel, while cool colours like blue and green can evoke a sense of calm and serenity. Lighting colour can be used to reinforce the event’s theme or align with a company’s branding. Consistent colour choices throughout the event help convey a cohesive and well-thought-out message. Here is some inspiration:

  • Projection Mapping

Transform the walls, ceilings, or even objects with dynamic visuals and animations using projection mapping technology. This is perfect for creating ever-changing environments.

  • Lasers

Use lasers to create patterns, animations, or laser beams for a visually stunning and futuristic effect.

  • Holographic Displays

Holographic displays showcase 3D visuals or holographic performances for a futuristic and cutting-edge experience.

  • Recycled Photo Wall

In the event space or pre-function area, set up a photo wall made from recycled materials with branding & fairy lights for selfies! This is a great sustainability option and also gives participants “Instagram-centric” photo moments.
