After booking your event space, you will need to add equipment and furniture to make it suitable for the occasion. However, what items should you consider? 

Here are more valuable suggestions in continuation from last time to help you in your search. Whether you're planning a birthday bash, a corporate event, or even a wedding reception, these ideas will cater to every occasion.

 1. Light It Up

Lighting is a crucial element in setting the mood and ambience of your event. From fairy lights and lanterns to LED bars and uplighting, there are countless ways to transform your event space with lighting. This is also an excellent opportunity to get creative through coloured lights or customised light projections.

Consider the theme of your event and the vibe you want to create when selecting your lighting. For a romantic, intimate atmosphere, consider soft, warm lighting like candles or fairy lights, while a more lively, upbeat vibe needs some colourful LED lights and a disco ball. 

Here are other essentials to consider:

Uplighting: Uplighting can transform any venue by adding depth and dimension to the walls and highlighting architectural features.
String lights: String lights create a warm, inviting atmosphere and can be used both indoors and outdoors.
Spotlights: Use spotlights to highlight key areas such as the dance floor, stage, or entrance.
Projectors and screens: If you plan on showing videos or presentations, you'll need a projector and screen setup that suits your venue size.

2. Get Interactive with Entertainment and Technology

To keep your guests engaged and entertained, consider incorporating interactive elements into your event space. This could include a dancefloor with DJs, a gaming station, or even a DIY cocktail bar. 

When it comes to technology in events entertainment, make sure your space is equipped with the necessary audio-visual equipment, such as microphones, speakers, and screens, to ensure seamless presentations or performances.

3. Use Draping to Create a Luxurious Atmosphere

Draping can completely transform a room, adding elegance and sophistication to your event. Use draping to create a dramatic entrance, separate different areas within the space, or cover up unsightly walls or ceilings. 

Choose fabrics that complement your colour scheme and theme, such as lush velvet for a vintage-inspired event or airy chiffon for a garden party.

4. Backdrops and Photo Booths

A stunning backdrop can double as a decoration and a photo opportunity for your guests. Choose a background that reflects your theme and colour scheme, and don't be afraid to get creative! You can use anything from flower walls, balloon garlands, or even a wall of fairy lights to create an Instagram-worthy backdrop.

And speaking of photos, why not set up a wedding photo booth with fun props and costumes for your guests to pose with? It's a great way to keep your guests entertained and create lasting memories of your event.

5. Don’t Forget the Finishing Touches

Once you've got the essentials covered, it's time to add those finishing touches to make your event truly memorable. 

This might include decorative items like banners and balloons or practical things like a candy cart for hire, coat racks, and signages. Consider your event theme and the needs of your guests when choosing these final details.
