Last year, we saw a corporate event trend where clients selected their table settings, lighting, and furniture packages based on a specific color palette rather than utilizing a particular theme. This year, the pendulum has shifted full swing back in the opposite direction, and much to our delight, theme parties are making a triumphant return! We’ve operated over 20 themed events across Southern California in the last few months alone. Here’s a look at three of our recent favorites:
Make it Work! Fashion Fete (Santa Barbara, CA)
Our latest themed event was a fashion-focused cocktail reception and dinner for 90 guests at Belmond El Encanto. As Tim Gunn would say, The Event Team “made it work!” using sleek specialty linens and decorated dress forms as centerpieces. We also erected a 16’ runway and provided ambient lighting for the event (because in fashion, lighting is everything, dahhhhling). Entertainment included a DJ, Heidi Klum impersonator, and a Fashion Sketch Artist.
Step Right Up! Vintage Carnival / Circus (San Diego, CA)
Step right up! Our client selected a vintage carnival theme for this 130-guest networking event at Omni La Costa Resort and Spa’s Edge Pool. In addition to fun décor and funky furniture, The Event Team provided vintage carnival games like High Striker (to test your strength) and a Fortune Teller Booth (to predict your future), as well as unique entertainment such as LED performers and a “sphere” acrobatic act.
Fiesta Forever! Upscale Mexican Theme (San Diego, CA)
For this 80-guest event on the Avalon Terrace at Park Hyatt Aviara, The Event Team applied a modern treatment to the traditional Mexican fiesta for a fresh and upscale interpretation of this theme. (Sorry bros, no fake mustaches or sombreros here). Colorful florals, festive table runners, and market string lighting set the perfect summer tone, which guitarist David De Alva complemented beautifully with classical flamenco music.
