If you’re planning an event in 2019, there are a few things you should consider to make sure your gathering is as perfect as it can be. When it comes to the finer details, like appetizers, place settings, centerpieces, and even the invitations, those all can make a huge difference in elevating your event and making a major statement.
Plus, as new trends pop up, you can incorporate those into your planning and wow your guests. If you’re looking to start 2019 off with a bang, use these tips for taking your next event up a notch.
Bring in Unique Entertainment
Instead of a DJ or photo booth, go for unique forms of entertainment, like bowling, tarot card readers, karaoke, magicians, caricaturists, and more. These types of performers or activities are unexpected, and they are super fun, where all the guests can partake in the experience and maybe even go home with some memorabilia. If they tie into a theme, like a futuristic theme, even better.
Choose a Color or Two and Go With It
It’s super on trend to incorporate monochromatic colors themes into an event, which provides a level of sophistication and uniformity that pulls everything in the room together nicely. For instance, make everything green—the chairs, curtains, table clothes, the silverware—all in different shades. Or choose two colors, like black and white or gold and silver metallic and incorporate them into pieces throughout the room.
Bring in Balloons
Long are the days where balloons were solely for kids’’ birthday parties. Now they are seen at weddings, mitzvahs, corporate events, baby showers, bridal parties, and more. There are so many ways to have fun with balloons, where you can set up a balloon wall (and let people take photos against it), use balloons as a centerpiece on tables, display a balloon tree for decoration, or let them fly to the ceiling to set the mood.
Food, Food, and Food
No doubt here, people love to eat. In 2019, create delicious appetizers that look gourmet but are also casual and messy, with a street food vibe. It’s becoming super popular to make “messy” food fancy and hip, such as tacos, sliders, mini grilled cheeses, and more. For dessert, swap a generic cake for a cake that is in the shape and size of numbers or letters to represent your event—be it a date, initials of the guest of honor, or an age. And be sure to add tons of decoration, such as candy pieces, sprinkles, more cake bites, and more.
