3 event trends we’re loving right now


Styling trends

Add some elegance to your event, without blowing the budget.

As we head into the festive season, you might be looking for event styling trends to incorporate into your end-of-year functions.

Whether its an intimate long-table lunch or a gala dinner, there are so many ways to add a touch of style and elegance, without blowing the budget.

Here are three of our favourite event trends right now:

1. Preserved flowers

Preserved flowers are all over our Instagram feeds, and we expect they’ll be all over events in the next few months.

Unlike traditional dried flowers that all end up a similar shade of brown, preserved flowers use glycerine to replace the moisture, giving them the look and feel of fresh flowers.

They’re super low maintenance, can be reused and will often last up to 12 months – what more could you want!?

2. Individual desserts

COVID-19 has completely shaken up food and beverage catering at events, which means a whole lot more individually plated meals and a break from shared-style menus.

But individual portions certainly don’t have to be boring, particularly when it comes to dessert.

Fresh fruits and edible flowers are an easy way to bring some fun and colour to the table, like these delicious donut creations below:

3. Pillar candles

For an table setting that looks effortlessly sophisticated, pillar candles are the way to go.

We think the more the merrier when it comes to this style trend – create bunches of varying heights to add some life to your dinner or lunch table.
