With the summer just around the corner, outdoor events are making their comeback – offering great fun and a range of gorgeous spaces for event planners and party organisers to create the perfect outdoor event. Just take a look at these gorgeous Pinterest inspirational themed outdoor event photos we found!
While having a shin dig under the big blue sky is amazing, there are a few important things to consider before you plan your outdoor party:
Safety first, no matter how great the platform looks, if there is any chance someone could trip - do away with it. Nothing will sink an event quicker than an accident. Rather be safe than sorry.
First impressions matter. When arriving at an event, how does it look and more importantly how does it make your guest feel, welcome, included, expected? A friendly smile goes a long way to a great first impression.
Walk through your event as if you were attending it, feel what they feel, see what they see and you may be surprised as to what arises. Sometimes we get so involved in how it looks we forget how it might feel.
Colour can be used as a powerful tool for communication, bend the mood, create energy simply by manipulating colour in furniture, decor and light.
Never arrange decor without doing a site visit. You will be surprised how different website photos are to a real-life experience.
I would like to take this opportunity to personally thank you all for the hard work, dedication, commitment and enthusiasm each and every one of you individually and collectively displayed to make the Durban July the spectacular event it was!
Collectively we are a great team and there is no supplier to Beluga Hospitality, only partnerships – together we created an environment where our clients could enjoy themselves and leave with lasting memories of a spectacular occasion – an event is only a success where you can relive the day well after the event and I believe, for the most part, our clients have already relived the day and have fond memories!!
Thanks again one and all and we look forward to an even better Durban July in 2019!!
Grant Wilson, Director of Beluga Hospitality
A huge thank you to the Inspire team for the amazing help this weekend on the big Standard Bank job at Monte Casino. The team helped pull off a very tight turnaround and went above and beyond in assisting us. On Sunday they were there at 6am, ready to go. They worked so hard! We are so thankful.

Your services were professional, on time, stock quality was excellent and appreciated. Nothing was too much trouble, although I revised the order a dozen times, you assisted with so many challenges.
