7 HOT Party Trends for 2018

Hey, we hope everyone had a wonderful New Year’s! We are so excited to share with you this year’s 2018 hot party trends. After digging into some of 2017’s highlights, we are happy to tell you that, some trends are still going strong, like metallics, greenery, and our favourite…. ‘Industrial inspired’. Here are 7 trends to get your party started!

1. Unique Venues
The demand for non-traditional spaces has grown. Booking a unique venue for your event may require going outside your comfort zone — a hotel or a backroom is no longer enough. Excite your guests and design a fantastic experience with an unusual setting that will immediately create a statement. A versatile space makes it easier to customise and will definetly give your guests that unique party experience.


2. Think Industrial
Industrial has become a trend that’s apparent in some of the hottest venues around London. This year we are embracing concrete, steel and exposed structures that have a unique and nostalgic beauty. This theme allows for plenty of texture and goes perfectly with the added effect of marble and metals. We love that this trend has filtered down from wedding to parties and events!


3. Pantone Colour of the Year
Get ready for a mystique and captivating event with Ultra Violet, Pantone Colour of the Year. Get inspired with Pinterest, succulents have the perfect purple undertone for a fresh look to your table arrangement. Mix it up to whichever suits you best, lighter shades for a bright summer party or darker tones for a rich winter party.


4. Comfort Food
This year, events are taking a turn to savoury comfort foods. 2017 was all about dessert tables and doughnut walls, make 2018 your year to leave a lasting impression, and what better way than with food. Make your guest feel totally at home! Your menu options don’t have to be limited to just chicken and fish…. get creative! Some of our favourites include homemade pies, tiny cheeseburgers and chips.


5. Greenery Backdrops
Foliage is definitely not a new wedding trend, it’s been around for a few years now and has never disappointed. For 2018, we’ll be seeing a lot more of it in events, sometimes just greenery alone. Look out for stunning garlands, walls and even hoops. We have a feeling it is going to be big and sticking around for a while.


6. Marble + Copper
Marble and Copper have become a timeless look that is not only a massive trend for events, but all over the home décor scene this year. The luscious swirls of stone cold marble paired with the warm hues of copper make for a perfect party setting with the balancing of cool and warm. Incorporate it into lighting fixture, cutlery and even sprayed onto the foliage arrangement.


7. Translucent Accents
Last but definitely not lease The motto for 2018 is ‘less is more’. So, a brilliant way to keep your party subtle and minimal but not predictable and dull is with texture. Lucite and Acrylic can be a great addition to creating lustrous accents and details to your theme. Think ghost chairs, ornaments and cocktail and menu stands.
