If your job is to party plan, you often have to have a creative mind. You have to see any venue as a blank canvas that you can shape into something incredible. It does not matter if the party is in a garden, a ballroom, or a warehouse, you have a vision that transforms the room into your clients dream. But what if you do not have the most creative mind? How do you take an aesthetically plain space and make it visually incredible? Here are some suggestions and ideas on how you can save money to create something truly amazing!
Aesthetically Plain Rooms are Cheaper
These rooms for rent are very bland and may not be in the most luxurious locations, but it could save you hundreds of dollars. Not only will you save money, but these are the best rooms to let your imagination run wild. View an open, plain space as a room that you can do anything in. This allows you the option to decorate it any way you want, any color, different layouts, and much more! Here are some ways to dress up a plain room on a budget.
1. Ceiling Decorations: There a lot of things you can decorate a ceiling with and that can truly transform a dull looking event, into something elegant. Take this photo for example, A carefully draped thin cloth, attached to Christmas lights, dangling from the center of the room, softly lighting your party from above. Doesn’t that look and sound elegant? This is just one decoration possibility you could use for your event, and that’s the benefits of having a plain open room. It allows you to create something great from absolutely nothing.
2. Use a Theme: We all know how cliché theme parties are, but considering to use a theme as a guideline rather than the whole party, could make things a lot easier for your client to come up with ideas for their event. A themed party, can give you or your client a platform to use, by the colors you want use, decoration ideas, or type of food being served. For example, Disney themes are really popular for weddings or parties. Instead of buying a Snow White dress, infuse special props or moments form the movie to make it noticeable, but won’t take over the whole design. Here is a table piece from a Disney movie. Can you guess which one?
3. Table pieces: Sometimes all you need to tie a whole room together is an outstanding centerpiece. Most opt for a large assortment of fresh flowers, but this can prove to be very pricy. There are so many other options to create an eye catching piece that you could do yourself. Some examples include, cheap vintage lamps that are spray painted to match your color palette or different sized candles grouped together to create a flickering glow. My favorite idea is to take a cylinder, glass vase and throw a beautiful fake flower inside. Then fill it up with water and place candles around it. Here’s a photo for reference.
All of these tips come at a low cost and are things that you can do yourself. Follow these guidelines and your next party will be a dream event.
