5 Ways to Jazz Up Your Party Decor

March 29, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 169

Planning a party or event can be one of the most rewarding yet challenging tasks imaginable, but with so many décor options to consider, you can ensure that your event is one guests will be talking about for years to come. Party décor has evolved in many ways over the years, and these days it is possible to jazz up any event with eye-catching centrepieces that get the conversation going.

After all, the environment of your event plays just as much of a role as the music, food, people and atmosphere do when it comes to planning a successful party.

Fun Party Décor Ideas

Whether you are planning a cocktail function, client drinks evening, birthday party or any other type of event, these party décor ideas should offer some inspiration. Fun ideas to consider include the following:

  • Ice bar - the bar is nearly always a focal point at any event, as this is where guests tend to congregate during the course of the evening. Give your guests even more reason to hang out at the bar with an ice bar that creates instant impact. Ice bars can be made entirely of use, or even use features such as an ice luge to pour drinks. Not only will guests be ensured of ice cold drinks, but they are sure to remember this focal point long after they have left the party.
  • Chocolate fountain - these are a great way for guests to indulge their sweet tooth, while also adding visual appeal. Chocolate fountains come in a range of sizes to suit events of all natures, and once they are set up will last through the night. Be sure to add plenty of strawberries and other sweet snacks that guests can dip into the fountain.
  • Black and white theme - for a new twist on a classic theme, print out old fashioned movie stills and enlarge or block mount them. Placed around the venue, these bring in the classic colour scheme to your décor. Classic entrées such as oysters, Avocado Ritz, shrimp cocktails and other snacks can be served with cocktails such as martinis, champagne and margaritas. For even more impact, you could even arrange a projector to screen your favourite classics such as Casablanca.
  • Ice sculpture - if you are planning a birthday party or corporate event, ice sculptures are a fun way to create a visual centrepiece for your venue. Ice artists can be hired to create a life-like statue of yourself, or even a branded sculpture to bring across your message during a product launch. For even more entertainment, the sculptures can be created live during your event.
  • Photo booth - while these are not a totally unique attraction at events, you can use these to personalise your event and make your guests part of the party's success. Set up at the entrance to the venue, guests can enter the photo booth on arrival to have their pictures taken. These pictures can then be used as placeholders for a seated dinner, or turned into quirky name badges for a networking event. For informal parties, you can use these photos in your thank you cards or even create a collage of all guests who attended, to send to everyone after the event.

The key to successful party décor does not have to come from a huge budget, but rather a bit of creative thinking. Let your imagination go wild, and plan an event that is sure to be remembered long after the final guests have left.
