Often, we do not put much thought into the layout of the space we’re hosting the party in. you can do so much more if you move a few table and chairs here and there to see what works and what not. A little creativity will help in improvising the entire design of your event.

Focus on using the stage or a particular spot that draws attention and work according to that. You will find that setting up your tables and chairs in a nonconventional way will go a long way in shaping the space of your event in a unique way.

Flower arrangements can be a great way to have a pop of color throughout your event; but let’s face it, they can be pretty expensive.

Instead, you can integrate color in your event with the plates, linens, skirting, chairs, etc. according to your event’s theme. For ideas on birthday themes, check out our blog!

Another great way of getting the most out of ordinary things is using your food displays creatively. You can display food in a unique way on the service line or as a centerpiece on the tables. You may have crystal jars filled with candy as a centerpiece on tables if the event’s theme allows. Following this, you can use savory or sweet displays on your tables or at a particular food display stall as an attention center at your event.
