Roll out the carpet and get ready for the fun, the summer event season is here! After all those months of winter and the chilly spring, people are more than ready to get out and have some good times. Make sure your event comes together right by keeping these tips in mind for your next summer event!
Know the Venue
Let’s start with the venue because this is one of the most often overlooked areas when putting together an event. Make sure to check the layout of the venue so you can plan for outlets and spaces for lighting and sound. If it will be a pool or outdoor event, make sure to plan around the water, people being wet, and the chance that the weather will turn sour. Also, prepare for the high traffic areas so you will be able to direct the energy and flow of people around the food, DJ, or open spaces.
Set the Stage with the Right Ambiance
Consider the theme of your event and have everything point toward that theme. Every element should enhance and contribute to that central idea, including entertainment, food, lighting, linens, music, and tableware. Try to build in an exceptional blowout factor such as a private tent or spotlit side spot to build excitement.
Harness the Power of Color
As with all other areas, the coloring of your event should build on your theme. However, consider using themes that complement summer colors, including bright reds, yellows, oranges, and pinks. The exciting colors will liven up the crowd and build a positive atmosphere.
