How To Style An Event

Event styling is just as important to your next party, corporate event, wedding (or any other shindig) as booking the venue and getting the best caterers in Melbourne.

In fact, you should be thinking about event styling long before anything else. By establishing the ‘look and feel’ of your next party, you’ll be able to make all sorts of important decisions with clarity – from choosing matching invitations, to catering and decorations. Event styling is the ‘glue’ that binds your event, making it memorable, consistent and special.

So how do you style an event?

One of the most important places to start is choosing a theme. Whether it’s for a birthday, wedding or corporate occasion, your theme should be clear and appropriate. For example, you probably wouldn’t select a circus theme for a corporate investment bankers event, but you may very well choose a futuristic/sophisticated theme instead.

Once selected, your theme should be translated across all the touchpoints of your event, including:

  • Invitations
  • Venue
  • Event design (table layout, lighting etc.)
  • Event logistics (e.g. time of party, equipment used, itinerary)
  • Activities
  • Décor and styling
  • Music and entertainment
  • Food and drinks
  • Guest attire and more

The most important thing is to be consistent – make sure your theme is applied the same away across your event. You should also choose a colour palette (usually no more than three) which you can weave through the party’s decorations, food, drinks and more.
You don’t have to have a big budget to pull off a well-styled event – you simply need to be organised with a plan. Of course, you can also call on Your Private Chef for help.
