3 Reasons to Add Greenery to Your Event Space

Adding greenery to your event space can transform a dreary, dull room into one with vibrant color, warmth and energy. You can mix and match with a variety of color palettes and designs. Here are our top 3 reasons to add some greenery to your event space:

1. It’s versatile.

Adding greenery of any kind to your space is always a great idea and the nice thing is you are not locked into how you use it. It can match with any color and be used in various ways. As in the photo below, in addition to the pops of blue and pink we added natural green tones by utilizing the living walls provided by the venue as a backdrop to our beautiful outdoor lounge and pairing that with a grass rug. Both of these elements help to create a visually appealing space and add texture, making this a picture-perfect spot at your event! I mean, who wouldn’t want to relax in this lounge?

 

2. It instantly warms up your space.

Adding planters to a large room instantly fills the space, and sets a warm, intimate setting for your event. If the group is small and the space is large, this is also a great décor option to help make the vast area work for smaller groups.

 

3. It creates a unique space.  

Using planters or hedge walls to divide your space is a great option for indoor and outdoor events. Putting multiple walls together allow you to create a unique, private space to be used for a multitude of purposes. You can even enhance the walls by adding custom logos and signage.

 

Of course, there are several reasons for you to add greenery into your event design. Nobody wants a dull space, and plants are a great way to add vibrant color, texture, and aesthetic to your event. No matter the venue you can always find a way to incorporate greenery!

 

Event Signage: How to Elevate Your Next Event

Event Signage: How to Elevate Your Next Event

Events have many moving parts, and getting your attendees to smoothly locate and move throughout your venue is vital. Swank Events can help your company create impactful signage that can offer more than just directional value!

This summer we were apart of IntelyCare’s Summer Outing at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts. Larger venues like this can be tricky to navigate and can lead to your participants getting lost. Signage is the most overlooked and forgotten ingredient in a successful event because of their plain nature. Corporate events especially, have the ability to form employee comradery and lose the formality of the work environment. An easy way to do this is with décor, and it is easy to include your signage in that vision.

Create a Welcome Sign to help the attendees know they have found the correct location and are not wandering around the property. The Welcome Sign is the first touch point that guests will interact with, and it is important to make a good impression. Include eye-catching colors and branded material to ensure that your guests can easily find it. At this event we added company colored balloons next to each sign, keeping the overall theme in contact.

Swank Events created the concept of using different sports quotes on each sign leading the guests to the main event. Using these signs as touch points rather than arrows was our way of promoting the company’s core values and also carrying through the theme of “We are the Champions.” Signage can look and represent anything you want!

 

Event Planning Tip: After determining the placement of your signs, be sure to walk through the venue as if you were a guest. You’ll want to ensure that the location of your signage provides the most benefit for your attendees and serves it’s purpose, whether that be wayfinding or decorative.
