Design Decorations and Furnishings

Your unique touch and theme will come alive in the decorations and furnishings. Use this time to be as creative as possible to build an atmosphere within budget. During your task list stages you should have been considering items such as: tables for meals, seating, display tables, lighting and centre pieces. These are just a few of the decoration and furnishings elements to consider, but consider it you must.


Designing your decorations should build atmosphere, intrigue and excitement to your guests. Having a good back drop for your guests group photos are great to consider, along with different textures to draw eyes and touch. Make sure the decorations are secured to avoid any accidents throughout the event, and enjoy the journey of visualising the end result

Applications and sites like Pinterest are great to get inspiration depending on theme and personal style. If you don’t already have an account, set one up and start pinning inspirational images to your boards for future reference. You can be as detailed with the pinboards you create, or as high level as you want, but build a list to remember what has inspired you along the way. Reference this list as you trawl the internet for supplies and deals:

  • Lighting
  • Floristry
  • Scatters
  • Backdrops
  • Feathers
  • Seat covers
  • Snack Tables
  • Centre Pieces
  • Guest Book Table
  • Signage
  • Gift Table
  • Stages
  • Table Plans
  • Ceiling, Walls and Floor

Reference images will also help your vendors understand your vision and the overall effect you want to create. Providing images of the displays and decorations as part of communications will help them quote for the elements you want to include, which will in turn help you budget for the occasion. Vendors may charge for the hiring of display equipment as security in case of any damages. If you can find a cheaper way to build displays by begging, borrowing and building before you kick off the event, definitely look at options. Any money you can save in the decorations will give you more options to include additional elements or find you being praised for your thoughtful money saving abilities.
