Trends for 2015 Summer Events
For the investment you will place into your event, let’s make sure it is one that will please you and your guests no matter the size. Read on for popular trends and ideas for your next summer party.
Film and Theatrical
Great Gatsby themed events and soirees are not quite leaving the trend scene for event themes, but if you’re into movies, more films are joining that list. This year marks the 150th anniversary of Alice in Wonderland. The release of Disney’s first “Star Wars” rendition and the debut of “Jurassic World” are also making waves on social media and into party themes.
For the adventurous host, adding subtle film props and scenery will be sure to transform your event from a run-of-the-mill gathering to a scene from Hollywood’s top cinematic geniuses.
Technology and Social Sharing
From social ready photo-booths to a customized hashtag for your event, this summer’s parties will be broadcast via social media, of course. Consider adding special props, live Instagram “frames” or scenic areas for your guests to take fun snapshots to immortalize your event on social media and beyond.
Marsala: Pantone Color of The Year
Pantone color of the year for 2015 is Marsala, the red-brown hue that is reminiscent of many of your favorite sweet red wines. Marsala conveys warmth, sophistication and comfort and is a great accent color to complement metallic accessories including gold, rose gold, glitter, copper and silver. Use this color for your 2015 summer event for a subtle, yet enchanting color backdrop that will be classic and completely unforgettable.
Lofts, warehouses, galleries, museums and restaurants have recently become popular venues for hosting events. For those wanting to have more character and distinction to their party, banquet halls and basic, large conference rooms are fading as hosting spots for modern events. Decorating and styling in these spaces may take a bit more creativity, so consider an experienced party planner to assist you with personalizing this space for your occasion.
