Is any important event coming up? Are you freaking out just by thinking about all the impending arrangements? Well, well, we all have been there at some point of our lives when we had to arrange some important event. It is really a task to get all the things done; starting from the venue and ending at the on-ground event management. Those who really pull things off perfectly are super geniuses and multi-taskers. Now that we are done emphasising the superman powers here, let’s jump onto what we are going to discuss today. One of the essential things while organising any event is how the venue and the event space is going to look like. In simple words, how are you going to pull off the decoration to enhance the ambiance. It is difficult, but not as difficult as you think it might be. Here is how you can pull off event décor with perfection.
Before you actually start working on themes and concepts, you need to do a bit of paperwork in order to go about the entire décor process. Starting with the location, you must be aware of the complete specifics of the venue, let’s say function venues Prahran, so you may know which areas have what shape and how many of them require you to work on the decoration. Do a survey visit, and make notes, so you know the description and can create a rough idea of the décor when you are back home and have your planning hat on. When the roadmap is clear, work on the budget and how much you can spend on it. It will help in sorting out what kind of decorations can be done. The budget and the venue must be clear before you proceed with the actual tasks, and that includes planning out the strategy of the event. You need to be sure regarding what’s the nature of the event, total number and the social group of the attendees as well. If you are targeting a youth event, the décor scheme will be different, while an adult charity show will have a different theme. So, be sure about your target audience. In the end, it is significant to know the time frame you have to manage and organize everything you are planning to. This all must be done before you proceed with the theme selection.
Concept & Theme:
After building up a general idea, think of all the concepts and themes you need to work on, depending on the nature of the event again. The concept should completely depend on the factors you have noted above. You must consider the timeframe, venue space, event nature, budget, target audience and their age group etc. before creating a unique theme. Let’s say you have an outdoor day event, you can work on including natural element and some shades so everyone can enjoy the natural outdoor lighting and the weather. On the other hand, if it is a nighttime party, you can work on creating a chic and popping indoor setup. It all depends on how you want the theme to play out in relevance with all the important factors mentioned in the point one. While creating a theme, you must be realistic and keep your personal preferences aside. It does not matter if you are into fresh flowers and not chandeliers. If the event is indoors, the latter is a better option to enhance the ambiance. Hence, do a lot of research and homework before finalising on a single theme. You wouldn’t want to end up creating an uncanny mess out of the event space. Lastly, whatever the décor, it is better if you follow a singular theme and do not mix and match multiple things. If you are not a pro, you will land in a big trouble due to the confusion created by a different set of ideas.
Get Into Action:
Paper work and planning will only take you so far. Everything that you have done above were just the preps for the real deal. Once you have sorted everything out, the concepts are done and the theme is finalised, get into acquiring the resources and items to pull them off. Gather man power, people with the relevant talents, divide the plan in phases and put it into action. We know the reward you are going to get on the event day will be worth all the hassle.
