Want to add a little bit of splash the next time you’re planning a party? Adding a little bit of decor can do wonders for your event. And it doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg. Have you ever noticed when you add a centerpiece to your table how it just pops? The same applies when planning a party – adding decor will kick your event up a notch.
As part of the event planning industry, I tend to give a quick glance around the room every time I attend a party or function. And quite often I find myself thinking of ways that event could have been set up differently, how flow could have moved differently or any number of factors that “could have” made the event or party that much better. Not that I rip apart every single idea that I didn’t come up with. Actually it’s quite often the opposite. When attending parties, I’m looking for ideas that I can apply to client’s future events. More often than not, all they needed to do was add a centerpiece here or a drape there and the space would have looked much more party like.
Planning a Party – Balloons Not Just For Kids Parties Anymore
A lot of people have the misconception that when planning a party decor is an option only for those with a large budget. While decor can certainly can be costly depending on the type and quantities, it doesn’t always have to be. Quite often simply adding a colorful floral arrangement at the entrance or a few potters scattered around the room with simple flowers can change the look and feel of your party. If you’ve ever attended or have been involved in planning a party for children, then you have most likely used balloons for decor. There’s a reason that kids like balloons. Apart from being fun to burst, the multitude of colors attract the children’s eyes and puts them in a festive mood. I’ve worked with quite a few clients planning a party without large budgets. For them, I’ve always suggested the use of balloons as decor. At first clients would be hesitant but once I showed them a few examples, they’d become quite impressed. Whether it be an archway at the entrance, a creative centerpiece on the tables, balloons can help add character to an otherwise open space.
So the next time you’re planning a party don’t rule out decor right away. You’ll be surprised what it can add to your event without breaking the bank. And anytime planning a party remember a party checklist is your best friend.
