Whether it’s a conference, office party, awards or a product launch a theme can generate plenty of excitement for your guests. Make the event memorable by turning it into something out of the ordinary. There are no rules for choosing a theme. As long as it is well executed, your guests are in for a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

When it comes to designing an event, a coherent theme will tie together all your ideas and make planning easier.  You can choose from Winter Wonderland and Ugly Sweater themed parties to something more luxurious such as royal theme or Murder on The Orient Express. There are almost no limits. Choosing a theme that relates to your heritage or company values can add real value to your event.

By including theming in your event you can turn a blank canvas into something different that is going to intrigue people. Just by creating a simple coherent centrepieces for the tables will make the whole space seem more organised and put together.

Theming doesn’t have to cost a fortune

Don’t think that theming your event is going to blow your budget. There are plenty of options how to minimise costs. It is all about the little things that make it special. Purchasing decorations in bulk, or using the same florist for every event and creating relationships with suppliers, can be an effective way of saving money.

Consider a dress code and props

Props are accessible everywhere and are one of many ways to decorate a room that relates to your theme. Think about your dress code and how you can get your guests to dress to style of your event. Throwing on a black tie or a fancy dress and enjoying a luxurious 1920’s Gatsby themed adventure. Imaginative decorations, costumes, vibrant tableware and all the little accessories will make your event stand out.

ENGIE – elegant and sustainable

Venues and Events International have already delivered many themed events and our Clients are never disappointed. Here’s one example…

ENGIE, an energy and services provider, and one of the largest employers in the UK, wanted to recognise its employee’s achievements at their annual Excellence Awards, whilst embedding their company aim of making zero carbon happen. We successfully achieved this by designing and staging the awards evening at The Boiler Shop in Newcastle.

“I’m always confident that Venues and Events International will deliver an exceptional event in a venue that matches my brief, and this was no different. The Boiler Shop is a fantastic location and fitting for such a prestigious evening.”

Alex Bruckshaw, ENGIE Engagement Projects Manager.

It was a chance for both the attendees to enjoy an evening of entertainment and for ENGIE to show their appreciation.
