Event design trends continue to emerge as the year marches forward.  As with all design there should be a specific goal whether it’s boosting creativity for annual planning sessions or increasing your attendees attention towards company objectives.  Regardless of the overall program’s purpose your design and décor can greatly influence your attendees’ experience.

Here’s a look at four of this year’s current trends that can easily be added to wow attendees:

Evolving decor trends for your next corporate event

Balloons the universal symbol of fun!

Balloons have grown up especially in the last year.  Once a staple at birthday parties, pep rallies, and school dances, balloons are making a big come back and on a much grander scale, thanks in part to celebrities like the Kardashians.

Balloons add pops of color and design variety. They can easily be used to highlight focal points and as directional markers. Balloons can be a fun way to add a bit of flair to decor.  Have a global theme?  Add some large blue and green orbs.  Want to spice up the reception area?  Try a branded balloon wall for a fun photo op. Consider adding clusters of white balloons to conjure up cloud-like ceilings. Turn to metallic looking balloons scattered along a wall for a cosmic vibe or stay grounded with earthbound balloons accented with florals for a fun and unique tablescape. Incorporating balloons into your decor can be a welcome alternative to traditional decor. 

Mother nature’s inherent beauty

Many people enjoy blending outdoor beauty with indoor luxury. But try adding a twist to the idea of bringing the outdoors in, by bringing the indoors out.  Consider adding a bit of drama to your outdoor event by hanging stunning chandeliers over long dinner tables or try placing several over the entire event space. These iconic beauties are sure to glam up your next outdoor event.

Charcuterie on display

While charcuterie boards aren’t new, the use of them at corporate events is a bit unusual. This latest trend is a blend of convenience and taste with personal charcuterie selections displayed on eye-catching platters such as marble or slate.  Or larger, more elaborate charcuterie displays as a table centerpiece with trays as unique as Himalayan salt blocks.

A mix of fabrics and patterns 

There seems to be a growing trend of mixing and matching colors, textures, and patterns. Whether it’s cheetah print seats combined with a zebra print linen or luxurious silk, suede, and satin combined for a look that touches the senses. Adding a variety of patterns and textures to decor not only appeals to our emotions but helps set the overall tone of an event.
