It’s official – the Pantone colour of the year 2019 is Living Coral!
This sea-inspired colour will be popping up everywhere in 2019 – prompting the latest trends on the high street fashion run ways, home décor, paint pallets, graphic design, interior design and the eventing scene. Make sure you’re on trend at your events this year. Hello Living Coral!
ESTABLISH VENDOR ATTIRE
When you’re consulting with vendors, be sure to bring up attire and behavior before you think of booking them. Vendor etiquette at any event is generally the least of your worries, but still, you’ll need to have them on board if you want the event to be seamless and successful!
LOUD & CLEAR
Being a guest and not knowing where or when events will be taking place is downright frustrating. A simple sign directing guests to the washroom or letting them know when cocktail hour is makes a huge difference in their experience.
START WITH THE FOUNDATION
Before building any décor plans for your client’s event, you need to know where it will take place. Key aspects of the venue to take note of are wall color, type of flooring, and room layout. Knowing just these three features will allow you to cater your design to the specific space.
TUNE INTO THE SEASON
An easy way to draw inspiration from the season is by using different variations of color. E.g, in the summer you should use colours that have a warm tint, rather than cool-toned shades. This will add a subtle, seasonal touch, without forcing your clients to change their whole vision of the event.
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.
