The Lighting Rental Guide for Your Corporate or Social Event

By Blog

The right lighting is critical to creating a functional, beautiful space. Lighting can set the tone for any event, helping you to make it intimate and soothing or bright and full of life. Consider the wide range of lighting rental options available for your event.

Types Of Event Lighting

Numerous types of event lighting are available. After gathering some information about how you plan to layout your event and the type of lighting each area needs, consider each of the following lighting options. 

Market Lights

Marquee lit up at night

Market lighting specifically helps with lighting up structures, such as the building or perhaps a gazebo. It can help to make the outdoor spaces beautiful while showcasing the elegant look of a space. Use it indoors or outside. 

Ellipsoidal Lighting

With the ability to use them as spotlights, ellipsoidal lighting is beneficial for a wide range of events when you want to put the focus on a specific person or area. This can be an excellent option for events with a speaker or performance.

Specialty Pendants or Chandeliers

This type of lighting makes the biggest impact! We offer a large variety of high end, specialty pendants and chandeliers. Shown below is our Black Iron & Rope chandelier.

Uplights in front of blue curtains

Uplighting helps to focus light upwards. They can be used against a dark backdrop or positioned on a speaker. Use them on tables, too, to create more focus on one table over the other. 


Laser lights are an excellent, dynamic component of lighting. They allow for bright, sometimes neon, lights to be used in a straight line across a room or wall. They can be paired with other light beams or used with a disco ball.

LED Lighting

Consider LED lighting when you want to add a significant amount of light to an event, such as to really brighten up an area. They can be used in a strobe pattern but also work well in a constant position. 

Stage Lighting

If you plan to have a stage or any area in which you want a lot of lighting focus, stage lighting works well. Rent this type of lighting when you want to showcase an area. 

Indoor Or Outdoor Event?

If you are planning to rent lighting for your event and the event will be outdoors, choose special lighting that can work within that environment. The weather is one of the most important factors in this.

You also need to think about the rental lighting needs in terms of how much space you wish to illuminate and, as a result, how many lights you need in that space. Also, consider:

  • Where you can plug them in and how much power will be needed?
  • How many will be necessary to fill the entire space?
  • Will a generator be necessary?
  • Where will you hang the lighting? 
  • What type of spacing do you need?

Create a Lighting Plan

Now that you have a good idea of what your options are, it is time to create a lighting plan. Most types of corporate or informal events will require more than one type of lighting. That means you should consider things like the following:

  • Are there any areas where you need a specific focus, such as a stage, speaker, table, or other space?
  • Which areas of the event will need mood lighting based on the use of that space?
  • Do you need added lights on or over tables?
  • Are there projects being worked on that may require more extensive or brighter lighting?
  • What types of activities are better suited for dimmed light?

Once you have this determined, you will then need to choose from the above list of rental lights to determine which ones fit each need. 

Determine the Necessary Equipment for Your Lighting

With an idea of what you need, now you need to determine how you will place lights throughout the space. Most of the time, this is where the lighting rental plan can become challenging. Consider the position of the lights within the room. 

  • How will you power them? 
  • If they need to be plugged in, are there enough outlets where you need to use them?
  • If they will hang from the ceiling, how will you make that possible?
  • Do you need lights that will focus downward, and if so, how will you mount these lights?
  • What can you do to minimize people tripping over cords?

Managing the Stage

If you have a stage or another area that you need to have a lot of light on, there are a few important aspects to consider about this process. You can use color or stage washes as a way to facilitate a better experience, for example.

This type of lighting helps to fill in the space with bright lights or colors. It helps to brighten up a display, too. Use them for highlighting areas. You can often use colors that fit your brand or even your logo to help them stand out.

Many times, spotlights are a critical component of stage lighting. They work well when focusing on a specific person or area. If you use spotlights, do so in a way that creates a positive look without overpowering the area. Consider using ambient lighting in the area around the stage. It is also possible to use lighting in the audience that is not distracting or pulls too much attention away from the stage. 

Colored Lights Can Work Well

Another option for creating a spectacular event is to install colored event lights. These work well when you want to designate some areas as different from others.

For example, you may want to zone various areas of a training seminar in different colors or distinguish tables by color. This can be a great way to create interest in the room while also helping to encourage people to move from one section to the next, such as if they are completing numerous smaller training sessions.

Define The Goals Of Your Lighting

As you work through the rental plan to fit your needs, there are a few key things to keep in mind. 

  • Use automated lighting to help minimize the number of steps you need to take to change the lighting scheme throughout the event.
  • Conventional fixtures in the space may also play a role in the lighting you need. Are there lights already present that could take away from your theme or look? That may require changes to the lighting scheme. 
  • Be careful mixing LED and traditional lighting, as it can make spaces seem off-balance if you do not have a cohesive plan.
  • Décor lighting can add beautiful elements to the space. For example, globes on the table, perhaps with a corporate logo in them, can help to set the tone for the space. 
  • Consider the property carefully. Some areas may have very high ceilings that require a different type of rigging or light positioning to ensure enough light is present. 

Also, speak to the property owner or rent space provider. What are the restrictions on lighting or equipment? You may also want to learn about any electrical limitations on power access, especially when you need a significant amount of lighting on a stage or for strobe lights.

Lights And Your Equipment

Another important factor to consider when choosing lights for your event is the AV equipment that you will be using. Do you plan to run videos on a big screen? Perhaps you plan to have special effects at various points in the event. Consider any backline use. The key here is to consider the whole picture. Where do the lights need to be and what does the space need to look or function like? Then, create a lighting plan with the help of a lighting rental company like Curated Events that can provide you with the flexibility you need. 

How Do You Light An Outdoor Event?

As you consider the plans for your event, you need to focus on the specific needs of outdoor space. For example, outdoor events do not always have a lot of access to power. Also, the amount of light you need will vary since there are no walls to “hold” the lighting in. That often means you need more powerful lights or, at the very least, you need to have a significant number of lights present. 

Table setting with plates stacked on charger plates

What are charger plates used for at events?

By Blog

What Are Charger Plates

Charger plates have names like underplate, service plate, or chop plates. Charger plates are large plates placed under the table setting to enhance the decor of the table setting. Charger plates add elegance to a meal when there are several courses served.

Types Of Charger Plates

Charger plates come in several different materials:

  • Glass
  • Porcelain
  • Imitation Wood
  • Acrylic 
  • Rattan
  • Stainless Steel

The type of charger plate used at an event depends on the aesthetic of the event. Remember that because one should not serve food on charger plates.

When To Use Wood Charger Plates

Wood charger plates work well when the aesthetic needs a more natural, organic feeling element or for an elegant outdoor event. 

Wooden charger plate

When to Use Acrylic Charger Plates

Acrylic charger plates have many colors and designs, making them an excellent choice for multiple events. Acrylic charger plates are also more durable than plastic or glass charger plates. You can find acrylic charger plates in virtually any color or style, which is why many event planners and designers use acrylic charger plates.

When To Use Glass Charger Plates

Glass charger plates are elegant and add that extra touch of class to any place setting. The drawback to glass charger plates is that they are fragile. If glass charger plates are not treated with care, they will damage and break. Glass charger plates are often used for more high-class events like galas and charity fundraisers.

When to Use Rattan Charger Plates

Ratan charger plates are generally used for a more organic or natural aesthetic. Rattan charger plates only aid the decor of the place setting. Ratan charger plates do not always protect the tablecloth or prevent spills. Rattan charger plates are more challenging to clean than other charger plates but are less expensive.

When To Use Stainless Steel Charger Plates

Like acrylic charger plates, stainless steel charger plates come in many colors. Stainless steel charger plates are more durable than acrylic ones but are only sometimes as versatile. Stainless steel charger plates can also be more expensive than their acrylic counterparts.

Do Charger Plates Replace Placemats

When using a charger, plate placemats are unnecessary. Charger plates add to the decor’s elegance and protect the tablecloth from being messed on or damaged. Even though placemats are unnecessary when using charger plates, one can still use placemats in conjunction with the charger plates if one chooses. 

Where Did Charger Plates Originate

Charger plates have been used since at least the 19th century to enhance table settings. We see a reference to a charger in Biblical times, which makes one believe they may have been around longer than we have on record. 

Charger Plate Standard Practice

In Europe, there is a different practice for using charger plates compared to the rest of the world. In Europe, charger plates are used as a base to place certain dishes on. Charger plates are mainly referred to as “service plates” in Europe and do not stay on the table when the main courses are served. 

In Europe, the only time there is no underplate on the table, whether a charge plate or a warm underplate, is during dessert. After the starter and entree are served, the charger plates are removed and replaced with warm plates for the main dishes. 

Later when the main course is finished, the warm plate is removed and not returned before the dessert is served. 

Europe is the only country we are aware of that has this practice. Generally, charger plates are left untouched throughout the entire dinner or meal service. 

What Are Charger Plates Used For At Events

Charger plates are mainly used to raise the standard of excellence of a dinner table setting. Their secondary process is to protect the tablecloth from spills and damage. Another purpose of charger plates is to protect your patrons from burning themselves on hot plates like the dishes that soup comes in. 

Why You Should Use Charger Plates At Your Event

For an event to be classified as an elegant affair, it is essential to have a charger plate as part of the table setting. Charger plates take your decor to the next level by combining all the elements. 

A charger plate helps give a place setting the finished look. If you’re at an elegant event and look at the table setting, you will notice that there is always a charger plate. A dinner setting looks complete with it. 

How To Use A Charger Plate

A charger plate is placed on the tablecloth at each setting. The relevant plates and bowls are stacked on top of the charger plate. The cutlery is then placed on the outside of the charger plate. The napkin or serviette is often placed on top of the charger plate. 

In most cultures, the charger plate will remain on the table in this position until the end of the dinner, unlike in Europe, where it is removed before the main dishes are served. If a placemat is present, the charger plate will be placed on top of the tablecloth, although in most cases, placemats are unnecessary if there is a charger plate. 

Difference Between A Charger Plate And A Dinner Plate

Charger plates are generally larger than your typical dinner plate yet smaller than a serving platter. Depending on the material they were made from, charging plates are usually thinner than dinner plates and serving trays or platters. 

Where Did Charger Plates Get Their Name

The charger plate is derived from an old English word, “charger.” This word was found in ancient Scottish and English texts, and it was used to describe how heavy objects were carried. 

It came into play with charger plates when they placed a single plate or platter in the middle of the dining table in ancient times. Their dinner was placed on this plate, platter, or charger. Everyone around the table would grab their meal off the charger in the middle of the table, as that was standard practice. 

As dinners became more elegant and sophisticated, the “charger” evolved into the charger plate that brings beauty to a dinner table. 

Dinner Plates

Dinner plates come in many shapes: round, square, rectangular, and even triangular. A large dinner plate generally has a diameter between nine and thirteen inches. Dinner plates come in multiple colors; some are made from different materials.

One mainly finds dinner plates made from porcelain but also made from wood, bamboo, plastic, and possibly even less common materials. No matter the material, the critical factor is that the dinner plates are made from waterproof material. 

Dinner Plate Origin

The dinner plate usually has a broad, flat surface, traditionally in a circle. Dinner plates have been seen in some form or another throughout history for thousands of years. The sizes of the containers increased when food became more readily available. 

There was a period in Europe when plates were no longer used, and they used what was called “trencher plates.” Trencher plates were either made out of wood or bread. 

The dinner plate as we know it today gained popularity in France in 1536, when Frances I of France was in power over the courts of France. 

Disposable plates are a far more recent invention. Disposable plates were first seen in 1904. Disposable plates are made of either paper or plastic and are only designed to be used once before they are disposed of, as their name indicates. 

Collectible Plates

Many people have adopted the culture of collecting plates. Most collectible plates have a picture or pattern that is either rare, one of a kind or has sentimental meaning. Some people collect leaves with the faces of famous people on them, like Elvis or members of the Beatles. Others collect plates with specific patterns from places like China. 

Still, more people collect plates when traveling, as other people do with spoons. It is possible to find dishes with the names of different states, towns, or countries on them, and some people collect these as souvenirs.

Key Considerations When Planning A Major Luxury Social Event

When it comes to social events, everything rises and falls on planning. Below is a guide on what you should consider when planning a significant luxury event –


Determine the specific funds available for the event. As you set your budget, ensure that you allocate some of the cash towards unforeseen expenses. For example, budget 90% of your actual figure and leave the 10% to cover emergencies.

Target Audience

The crowd you invite will determine what kind of social event you will host. For example, if you plan a luxury end-of-year event for your company, the theme and objectives will differ from if you are planning a family Christmas party.


Why are you hosting a luxury social event? What are you hoping to achieve? The answers determine your direction. If you need help with this, contact Curated Events to assist you from inception to execution.


The theme of your event should be consistent, from the invitations to the dress code. If this is overlooked, it can be an anticlimax for your guests. On the other hand, themed events are usually enjoyable and give the attendees something to look forward to.


Is your event being held indoors or outdoors? What is the sitting capacity? Is there ample parking for guests? These are the key considerations when picking a venue for your luxury social event.


Is the social event you are planning out of town? Will the guests have to incur travel and accommodation arrangements? What implication do these factors have on your planning?

For efficiency, you, as the planner, must address these logistics well in advance.


What equipment is required to host your event? Does the venue provide everything you will need? If not, what is the cost of renting the additional equipment vis-a-vis purchasing new items?

Event rentals for a celebration

Curated Events provides a wide variety of high-quality event rental equipment, everything from the place setting on the table to the dance floor and tent.


What activities do you have in mind to keep your audience engaged? It would be unfortunate to spend thousands of dollars on your luxury social event only for the attendees to get bored or underwhelmed. The best way to avoid such scenarios is to plan for the activities in advance.

Bottom Line

Planning the ultimate luxury social event can be a breeze, or a headache, depending on how you tackle it.

The good news is that you don’t have to go through the brainstorming and execution alone. If you are looking to work with a team of experienced and passionate professionals in the events industry, then Curated Events is here for you.

Luxury Baby Shower Party Ideas

By Blog

You’ve had a gender reveal party with all your friends and family. Perhaps you’ve even selected a name for your little bundle of joy. Thankfully, the fun is just beginning because it’s time for the ultimate baby shower experience. This one-of-a-kind experience filled with gifts and love celebrates your growing family in style.

If you’re planning a baby shower and are looking for inspiration to make your event truly special, look no further than this post. Here we’ll explore some of the most creative and elegant ways to celebrate your baby with style and sophistication.

Ideas For A Luxury Baby Shower Event

First, let’s consider the event space. Although gift-giving is a major part of any baby shower, your guests shouldn’t feel like that’s all there is to it. The key to planning a successful and memorable luxury baby shower is to create a fantastic ambiance that your guests will love.

Consider using luxury rental equipment to create an upscale buffet for a decadent and elegant brunch-style baby shower. Whether you choose elaborate displays of freshly baked pastries and confections or more traditional breakfast fare like waffles and omelets, your guests will feel pampered and spoiled.

You can rent all the catering equipment you need for your event from a trusted, high-end rental company like Curated Events.

With a wide selection of equipment to choose from, including luxurious furniture, elegant linens, and other decors, as well as top-of-the-line catering supplies, you’re sure to create a truly memorable baby shower experience.

Tea Time

Speaking of friendly conversation over drinks, a traditional tea-time event is another excellent idea for a luxury baby shower. Invite your guests to sip on their favorite teas and enjoy some light snacks as you exchange stories and well wishes for the little one on the way.

“Consider renting luxurious furniture, like plush velvet sofas, elegant armchairs, gorgeous china tea sets, and fine bone china teacups to set the perfect ambiance. Linens, candles, and other decorations can also help to make this event truly special.”

Arts And Crafts Session

Sit down with your friends and family to create beautiful hand-crafted gifts for your baby. This idea is a fun, low-pressure way to get creative while bonding with loved ones.

Some ideas for DIY gift crafts include creating custom photo frames out of wood or clay, making intricate paper crowns or flower bouquets, or even designing unique onesies or baby blankets.

“Decorate your workstation with vibrant colors and lots of playful patterns, and set out a spread of snacks and drinks to keep your guests energized as they work.”

Co-Ed Baby Shower

“Traditionally, baby showers are women-only events where the mom-to-be gets to delight in the company of her closest female friends and family members. But why not try something new and throw a co-ed baby shower instead?”

You’ll connect with your partner about the upcoming arrival and get advice from other parents on what it’s really like to raise a child. Invite the dad’s friends to join in on the fun and any close family members like gramps and uncles.

Garden Celebration Of Nature

“The entry of a new baby into the world is a beautiful reminder of the joy and wonder of nature. As such, consider throwing a garden-themed luxury baby shower.”

Set up an outdoor space with lush greenery, and decorate it with flowers, vines, butterflies, and other elements of natural beauty. Consider renting gorgeous outdoor furniture like a tent and oversized umbrellas to complete the look.

Add a few tables underneath the shade, or enjoy eating on your feet and interacting with your guests. As for food and drinks, opt for fresh, seasonal fare like fruit salads, freshly baked bread, and herbal teas.

Slumber Party

Take your girlfriends back to their teenage years with a slumber party-themed luxury baby shower. This event is the perfect opportunity for everyone to get together, gossip about fun pregnancy and parenting topics, and enjoy laughs over late-night movies and board games.

Add fun decorations like giant plush teddy bears, handmade dreamcatchers, and plenty of cozy blankets to set the mood. You can even set up a chocolate fondue station for guests to nosh on as they chat the night away!

Luxury Baby Shower Themes

Now that you have some great ideas for your luxury baby shower, it’s time to choose a theme that perfectly captures the essence of this fabulous event. The theme will guide all of your decor and food choices, so take some time to brainstorm ideas that fit with your vision for this celebration.

Superhero (Gender-Specific)

Kids love superheroes, and it’s no secret that adults still have a soft spot for them too. They represent the idea of the good guy always winning, which is a great message to send as the parents-to-be prepare for their new arrival. As such, consider throwing a superhero-themed luxury baby shower.

“A baby boy shower might feature Spiderman, Batman, or Superman, while a baby girl shower could incorporate Wonder Woman, Batgirl, or Black Widow.”

You can decorate the event space with superhero-themed decorations like action figures, comic books, and superhero posters. Set up a “photo booth” with capes and masks so guests can enjoy the fun.

All-White (Gender-neutral)

“The epitome of elegance and sophistication, an all-white luxury baby shower is the perfect choice for parents who want to have a chic event.”

White is such a versatile color and can be easily combined with other hues, like soft pastels or jewel tones, for a pop of color. You can add gold or silver touches for extra sparkle or incorporate natural elements like branches, flowers, and greenery for a fresh look.

Have guests dress all white for the party and serve delicious hors d’oeuvres like caviar on blinis and champagne cocktails. White flowers like peonies and lilies can be used as centerpieces.

Jungle (Gender-neutral)

A jungle-themed luxury baby shower is the perfect way to invite guests to celebrate your little one’s arrival with good old-fashioned fun.

“This theme evokes a sense of adventure and wonder, which will have everyone in the party spirit.”

Decorate the event space with lush greenery, vibrant flowers, tropical fruits, and even real animal statues. For food, serve up an array of fruits and veggies in a rainbow of colors to mimic the vibrant jungle landscape. You can also set up a DIY “photo booth” with fun props like masks, tribal prints, and faux feathers.

Cowboy (Boys)

If you’re having a baby boy, give him a taste of the Wild West with a cowboy-themed luxury baby shower.

Cowboy boots and hat

“This theme captures that classic image of dusty trails, roaring campfires, and rugged cowboys. Desert plants like cacti and yucca trees can be used as centerpieces.”

For food, serve classic American fares like burgers and hot dogs on the grill, or go all-out with a BBQ buffet, including ribs and brisket.

Decorate your event space with hay bales, wagon wheels, horseshoes, and other Western-inspired decors. You could even have guests dressed in cowboy attire like jeans, plaid shirts, and cowboy boots.

Pretty in Pink (Girls)

“Pretty in Pink is all about femininity and adorableness, making it the perfect choice for any mom-to-be. It captures all of the fun and excitement of a new baby while still being elegant.”

Expectant mother with baby shower gifts

Decorate your event space with pastel balloons, ribbons, and flowers. Mindfully select your food and drink menu to match the pink palette, such as serving rose-infused desserts and rosé wine. Depending on your venue, you could set up pink curtains and drapes to create an intimate atmosphere.

Sailor (Boys)

Another boy-friendly theme for a luxury baby shower is the nautical-inspired sailor theme.

“Embody all the fun and adventure of being on the open seas, wishing your little one “Bon voyage” as they set sail into the world.”

Sailor bridal party theme

Decorate your event space with traditional nautical decors like ship wheels, anchors, and life preservers. Set up a buffet table with deli-style food inspired by the classic American “dock lunch,” or go all out with a seafood feast to embrace that salty sea vibe.

Fairies (Girls)

Last but not least, if you want to throw a luxury baby shower with fairytale fun and whimsy, consider opting for a fairy-themed event.

“Decorate your party space with colorful flowers, glittering fairy lights, and cute sweet treats like cupcakes and cookies. String lights help create an enchanting ambiance, while a princess dress code will have guests feeling like part of the fairy tale.”

You could even set up a DIY craft station for guests to create their own fairy wings and headbands. As the icing on top, you can have professional makeup artists come in to do guests’ hair and makeup in whimsical styles fit for a fairy princess.

When should you host a baby shower?

There is no “right” time to host a baby shower, as it typically depends on the preferences and schedules of the parents-to-be.

Some people may prefer to have their showers close to the due date, while others may wait until after the baby has been born to celebrate.

However, due to the gift-giving nature of baby showers, you should at least wait until the gender of the baby has been determined, if not longer.

Who should you invite to the baby shower?

Your guest list will largely depend on the size and budget of your event. It’s also a matter of preference for the parents-to-be. Some common guests include close family members, friends, or other members of your social circle.

You should also consider incorporating guests who may have a special connection to the baby or who you believe will bring a unique perspective to the party. For example, you might invite grandparents or other relatives who live far away or colleagues who are also expecting.

Do subsequent children usually get their own shower?

The goal of hosting a baby shower is to celebrate the arrival of a new child but also to shower the parents with gifts that will help them prepare for parenthood.

The custom comes from young parents not having the means to buy many baby-related items, so the shower was typically a place for them to stock up. As such, it was usually only held for the first child.

However, modern parents often host showers as a celebration more than a necessity, so some couples may keep the parties going for subsequent children.

Ultimately, this depends on the parents’ preferences and budget, so it is worth considering whether your friends might want to host another shower for a second or third child.

Where to rent baby shower decor and supplies?

If you’re looking to host a luxury baby shower with all the bells and whistles, one option is to rent your decorations and supplies from a party rental service.

Companies like Curated Events offer a wide range of high-end decor, including table settings, linens, lighting, tents, furniture, and more.

Luxury Bridal Shower Party Ideas

By Blog

The wedding is approaching dangerously fast, and the stress levels are mounting. As a bride-to-be, you are undoubtedly feeling the pressure regarding your big day, and rightfully so. With the anticipation, expense, and effort of planning a wedding, it can be easy to forget one very important aspect of your big day: the bridal shower.

A luxury bridal shower is a perfect opportunity to unwind and reward yourself for all the hard work leading up to your wedding. Your girlfriends will also ease your woes by offering gifts and support you can lean on in the months and years to come.

With the proper planning and attention to detail, you can create a genuinely luxurious bridal shower that your guests will never forget.

“Note that someone close to the bride should be in charge of planning this event, like a bridesmaid or the maid of honor. However, the bride can naturally still have input and guidance regarding the overall look, feel, and style of her event.”

Bridal Shower Checklist

A bridal shower is a fairly loose and informal affair, but a few key elements should be included in any luxury bridal shower. To ensure that your event is memorable, follow this checklist as you plan:

Theme & Decor

The theme of your bridal shower will set the tone for your entire event. Consider a romantic or elegant theme that pairs well with your wedding decor. Or go bold and choose something fun and unexpected. Once you have decided on a theme, choose decor that matches your vision and complements your chosen venue.

Bridal shower tabletop setting

Decor can be one of the most important aspects of a luxury bridal shower. Careful thought should be put into choosing everything from table settings to centerpieces.

“For instance, a flower wall would be the perfect way to add drama and elegance to your event. Likewise, a string of twinkling lights would set the mood for a romantic evening.”

If you don’t want to buy all these accents for your bridal shower, you can rent them from a high-end event rental company like Curated Events. Our wide selection of beautiful decor allows you to create the perfect atmosphere for your special day.

Food & Drinks

“A luxurious bridal shower is not complete without delicious food and beverages to match. Take the time to find a catering company or caterer specializing in upscale cuisine, and be sure to serve a variety of delectable options for your guests.”

Once again, you can rent all the catering equipment you need for the night. It makes much more sense financially to rent the necessary equipment than to buy it outright. Plus, you’ll leverage the expertise of a highly-trained and experienced event team, ensuring that your bridal shower is truly spectacular.

Champagne at a bridal shower

Date & Guestlist

Setting a date for your bridal shower is one of the essential steps in planning. Ideally, choose a day that works well with your schedule while allowing guests plenty of time to RSVP and prepare.

“Most brides hold their showers about a month or two before the wedding, giving their guests plenty of time to plan for both events.”

When creating your guest list, choose carefully and consider who will be most helpful and supportive in the months leading up to your big day. A bridal shower should mainly be attended by those closest to you, so don’t feel compelled to invite everyone you know. Bridesmaids, family members, and close friends should definitely be included on your list.


Bridal shower venue

Finally, you’ll need a pristine location to host your friends. Traditionally, bridal showers are hosted in the maid of honor’s home, but there are plenty of other options to consider. A beautiful park or restaurant can also be a wonderful setting for a bridal shower, and you’ll likely have more flexibility in terms of your decor and catering choices.

“Whatever venue you choose, ensure it is accessible and comfortable for all your guests.”

Ideas For A Luxury Bridal Shower

Now that you have a good idea of the key elements that go into planning a luxury bridal shower, here are some other ideas to help you get started. Each of these activities goes hand in hand with the gift-giving tradition of the bridal shower.

Vintage Tea Party

Bridal shower afternoon tea

A vintage tea party is perfect for bringing elegance and charm to your bridal shower. Serve a selection of delicious finger sandwiches, scones, pastries, and various teas or coffee. You can also set up a DIY station where guests can make their own tea infusers or create place cards using beautiful pressed flowers.

“Bonus points if you can find old-fashioned tea cups and saucers to serve your guests.”

Sommelier-Led Wine Tasting

Do your friends love wine? Hiring a sommelier to lead a wine tasting at your bridal shower can be an excellent way to entertain and educate guests.

Wine tasting row lineup

You can pair different wines with different foods or let your guests enjoy some delicious varietals. To take the experience to the next level, consider offering high-end cheese and charcuterie plates for guests to enjoy alongside their wine.

Wellness Day

Take a page from the wellness trend by planning a luxury bridal shower centered around health, fitness, and overall well-being.

“Yoga and meditation classes are an excellent way to start the day, followed by healthy and nourishing meals.”

To pamper yourself, you can also consider getting the complete spa treatment, with a manicure, pedicure, and massage. For a fun twist on the day, set up a station to create natural candles and make-your-own effervescent bath bombs.


“Get a sneak peek of how pretty you’ll look on your wedding day by hosting a beauty and makeup makeover for all your friends at the bridal shower.”

A professional makeup artist can work their magic to give each guest a gorgeous and flawless look for the big day. You can also set up stations where guests can choose their own outfits and accessories or have a hairstylist on hand to help each guest get a stunning new ‘do. Complete the event with a photo booth to immortalize your glamorous looks!

DIY Floral Arrangements

Since the wedding day will most likely require tons of flowers, a bridal shower can be used as an excuse to get your hands dirty and work on some DIY floral arrangements. Gather your friends and family together to practice your floral arranging skills. You may choose to have a professional instructor to help you create stunning centerpieces, boutonnieres, or bouquets.

“Talk the night away as you make beautiful and functional arrangements that you can take home to decorate your space or help set the mood for the wedding day.”

Mixology Class

If you’re in the mood to party, consider hosting a mixology class to teach your friends and family some fun and creative cocktails they can serve at the wedding. You’ll be tasting lots of delicious drinks, so make sure everyone has a way to get home after a long and fun day.

You’ll need to have plenty of high-end barware, glassware, and other cocktail accessories to ensure your guests can fully appreciate the experience. A mixologist is also possible to hire. They will lead the class and offer tips and tricks to create unforgettable cocktails.

Fancy Dinner

Some brides just want to treat their friends and family to a decadent, fancy meal they’ll never forget. If you love hosting elegant and upscale parties, consider planning a luxury bridal shower with high-end cuisine, beautiful table settings, and plenty of sophistication.

“Depending on your venue, you can host a sit-down dinner, buffet, or cocktail party with passed hors d’oeuvres. You’ll also want to have plenty of elegant decors, such as candles, vases, flowers, and table linens.”

A live band or DJ will complete the experience and help keep the party going all night long!

Paint Day

This bridal shower is ideal for the group of artists at heart. Painting is all the rage right now, and it’s a fun way to spend an evening with your friends. There are plenty of paint night studios across the country where you can gather a group and learn to create beautiful art pieces.

“Some prefer to paint on coffee mugs or canvases, while others want more intricate and creative projects. Make sure you have plenty of art supplies, including paints, brushes, and other tools.”

Note that you can turn any art form into a bridal shower theme. If painting isn’t your thing, you can host a cookie-decorating class, a flower-arranging workshop, or even a karaoke night! The possibilities are endless, so let your creativity shine.

Painting experience

Game Night

Finally, if you’re looking for a more low-key bridal shower, host a game night! You and your guests can play fun card games or board games. This activity is also a great chance to get to know each other and share some laughs. Trivia games and charades are also fun options for a game night bridal shower.

Renting The Right Equipment

At a luxury bridal shower, it’s all about looking your best and enjoying the finer things in life. Whatever type of bridal shower you choose to host, ensure you have high-end rental equipment and supplies on hand.

“From the linens to the barware, and everything in between, be sure to work with a reputable rental company with the highest quality products at a fair price. “

At Curated Events, we have decades of experience providing rental equipment for luxury bridal showers, cocktail parties, weddings, and more. Whether you’re planning an elegant sit-down dinner or a casual game night, we have everything you need to make your event a success.

Who is supposed to plan the bridal shower?

The bride has a lot on her plate leading up to her big day, so it’s usually best to let someone else plan the bridal shower. It could be a close family member or friend with the bride. Bridesmaids or the maid of honor are also great options.

Is a bridal shower the same as a bachelorette party?

While both events can involve getting dressed up and celebrating the bride, they are not the same. The term “shower” typically refers to showering the bride with gifts. In contrast, a bachelorette party typically involves spending time together and/or doing fun activities as a group.

How do you ensure your bridal shower isn’t boring?

Music, dancing, and delicious food are all great ways to keep the party going. You don’t want to sit awkwardly waiting to open gifts for hours, so you must plan fun activities and games that your guests can enjoy. Lastly, your guestlist is key; try to invite a mix of people you know well to make the event more intimate and memorable.

Key Birthday Celebration Milestones

By Blog

Although every year on this planet calls for celebration, certain ages in the United States carry a lot of significance. These milestones mark critical points in our lives and are often celebrated with family and friends through special gatherings or lavish parties. You can create a memorable celebration for any of these key birthdays with proper planning and resources.

Let’s examine some of these essential birthdays and explore some luxury options for celebrating each. Notably, we’ll go over the following:

What Are The Most Important Milestone Birthdays?

1st Birthday

First birthday decorations and gifts

Perhaps the most significant birthday milestone for many parents is the first one. At this age, your child has officially made it through their first year of life and is on the path to independence and learning. Many parents celebrate their child’s first birthday with a special party, often featuring lots of bright colors.

“Keep in mind that kids this age won’t necessarily remember their first birthday, but you can still make it a special occasion. Focus on what makes you happy, whether inviting your friends and family to join you for a big party or simply spending time together.”

Decorations can be a great way to add some extra flair to your party. One idea is to create a custom balloon arch using colorful latex balloons. You can also decorate the room with fun, kid-friendly decorations like streamers and banners.

5th Birthday

Now that your child is more conscious of the world around them, it’s time to throw them a memorable 5th birthday party. They are making new friends, so it’s an excellent opportunity to celebrate with classmates and other peers.

“Your child is probably more interested in gifts and special activities at this age than fancy decorations or elaborate meals. However, if you want to go all out, you can plan a fun theme like a superhero party or a Disney-themed event.”

Use creative decorations, like custom napkins and tablecloths, to help set the scene. Some fun activities for 5th birthday parties include games, crafts, or even an exceptional performance from an entertainer or musician. You can also consider inviting a local animal rescue organization to bring some furry friends for kids to interact with.

12/13th Birthday

As a teenager, your child (or you) might be ready for a more mature birthday party to mark this transitional age. In Jewish tradition, the 12/13th birthday is celebrated as a Bar and Bat Mitzvah, which marks the time when Jewish children are considered adults in the eyes of God. These celebrations usually involve lots of luxury and extravagance as young adults enjoy their first taste of adulthood.

Birthday celebration tabletop setting

For instance, consider renting a venue for your party and splurging on lavish decorations like a custom photo booth or fun photo props. Add fancy linens and other table settings, and consider hiring a professional DJ or band to keep the party going.

“Food and drinks are also an important part of any celebration, so consider opting for a gourmet catering service or custom cupcakes and cake pops to add some extra flair.”

15th Birthday

As a young woman, your child is officially transitioning into adulthood and becoming a young adult. Some families celebrate this milestone by throwing a lavish Quinceanera party to honor this important event in their child’s life.

“This tradition originated in Latin American cultures but has become more popular in North America as well.”

For this special occasion, decorations often take center stage. You can opt for elegant table settings with fine linens and china. Go all out with custom floral arrangements and colorful bouquets. Other popular Quinceanera decorations include crystal chandeliers and draping fabrics to help set the scene.

Beautiful birthday celebration decorations

Of course, no party would be complete without great food and drinks. Consider renting a custom cake or splurging on a gourmet dessert buffet featuring indulgent treats like candy apples, cupcakes, and cookies.

16th Birthday

The “Sweet 16” birthday is one of the most important milestones in a young person’s life, symbolizing the beginning of the transition from childhood to adulthood. Most kids look forward to this birthday as a chance to throw a big party with their friends and family.

Sixteenth birthday cake

“Kids are often interested in fun, high-energy activities like dancing and games at this age.”

You can also consider renting some professional lighting for added ambiance if held during the evening hours. String lights and spotlights can help set the scene, while custom dance floors or linens can add elegance.

18th Birthday

Eighteenth birthday celebrations

At 18 years old, you’re officially an adult in the eyes of the law and can start making your own decisions and taking on new responsibilities. In many cultures, this is also a time to throw a lavish party or with family and friends. While you can’t legally drink alcohol until you are 21, many parents throw 18th birthday parties for their kids as an excuse to celebrate.

“A house party is always a good option, as you can control the atmosphere and ensure things stay fun and appropriate.”

As an adult, your tastes may be more refined. Consider hiring a professional company like Curated Events to help create the perfect event, and remember to send custom invitations to your friends and family. A luxury rental company can help you find the perfect decorations for your event, from elegant linens and china to custom lighting and props.

21st Birthday

The 21st birthday is a coming-of-age celebration for many young adults, as this is typically the age at which they are legally allowed to purchase alcohol and enjoy it with their friends. Many people mark this milestone by throwing a big party, with drinking, dancing, and fun.

For your event, consider a luxury venue, like a rooftop restaurant or nightclub. Doing so will give you the perfect space for your party and is sure to impress all of your guests. Add a touch of class with high-end tables and chairs, linens, decorative accents, or lighting to bring the event to life.

30th Birthday

The 30th birthday is often viewed as a turning point in a person’s life, representing the end of youth and the start of middle adulthood. By now, you might have a steady job and a family of your own. You should celebrate this new chapter with a big party.

Luxury 30th birthday celebration

If you’re a new homeowner, hosting the party at your house is a no-brainer. You can decorate with custom linens and tableware or rent some nice furniture to make your home feel more like a luxury event venue.

Another great idea is renting an exotic car for the day. Whether you take a road trip out of town or simply drive around in style with your friends, this is a great way to celebrate your 30th birthday in style.

40th Birthday

The mid-life crisis has been a popular cultural trope for decades and is often represented by the 40th birthday. By this age, many people feel like they’ve somehow “missed out” on life or are beginning to worry about their mortality.

If you’re facing these feelings yourself, consider throwing a big party to celebrate and show yourself some love. For a luxury 40th birthday celebration, look for a venue that makes you feel special, like an upscale restaurant or spa.

The goal is to make yourself feel good and have fun, so focus on doing things you enjoy or haven’t done before. Consider hiring a personal chef or cook for the day or taking a cooking class together with your friends. Whatever makes you happy will surely be a great way to celebrate this significant milestone.

50th Birthday

As you settle into your 50th year, you’ll likely feel more comfortable in your skin than ever before. After years of experience and lessons learned, this is an excellent opportunity to reflect positively on the past and look forward to the future.

“For your birthday celebration, consider throwing a refined sit-down dinner with your friends and loved ones. It can be a great way to reconnect with old friends, share some stories and memories, and look ahead to the next chapter in your life.”

50th birthday celebration

While you can simply go to a fancy restaurant for your celebration, renting a luxury villa or mansion is a unique option. This location will give you and your guests the space and privacy to unwind and enjoy each other’s company. You’ll also be able to decorate the space however you like and host a party that reflects your personality.

60th Birthday

The next milestone birthday, the 60th, is a big one. Some people are getting close to retirement or already enjoying their golden years. As such, a 60th birthday is often seen as the last hurrah before slowing down and enjoying life more relaxedly.

By now, partying and dancing all night may not be as appealing as it once was, but you can still have a great time. One fun idea for celebrating your 60th birthday is to rent a luxury yacht and sail around the ocean with your friends or significant other.

Whether you visit local beaches or venture out into open water, there’s nothing quite like spending the day on the water with the people you love. You can even decorate the beach for a more special and memorable experience. If you set up a marquee tent, string up lights, or just have a simple picnic, your big birthday will be an event you’ll never forget.

70th Birthday

At 70 years old, you’ve likely achieved many of your life goals and are just enjoying the ride. This milestone birthday is often seen as a time to reflect on the past and be proud of all you have accomplished, but it’s also an opportunity to set new goals for yourself.

For your 70th birthday celebration, consider hosting a party with close friends and family. Something at home can be more intimate and allow you to connect with the people who matter most.

100th Birthday

“Although the 80th and 90th birthdays are no less important, the 100th birthday is a rare landmark and should be celebrated accordingly. Few people get to this age, and at 100 years old, you’ve likely seen and experienced much more than your younger friends and family.”

Depending on your mobility and health, consider throwing a big party with all of your loved ones. Put comfort front of mind, and opt for a venue close to home and one with amenities like an elevator or wheelchair accessibility. Play back the music of your era and reminisce with old friends over champagne and cake.

Luxury New Years Party Ideas

By Blog

The new year marks the end of one chapter of your life’s book and opens another. It’s life’s way of giving you a second chance to achieve even bigger goals than the previous year, correct last year’s mistakes, and continue with your story.

Consider throwing a memorable party on a special night encircled by luxury and elegance to usher in a new dawn. Picture this, a special night where you let your guests sink in opulence.

If this is the theme you want to go for this year, here’s how to nail it.

Gold-Themed Party

Gold epitomizes luxury the best. The tremendous sparkle, the glittery atmospherics, and the brilliant aura of gold greatly increase the feeling of luxury to create an opulent atmosphere at your party. There are many ways to play around with gold decor to create the most beautiful setup.

Before you start decorating, keep the golden vibe to the point where it helps the purpose. Gold is a strong hue; too much can make the room look silly and unsettling. Instead, create a magical venue with the right amount of subtle golden radiance in the right places.

Here’s how to do it.

Add A Gold Runner With Blending Accessories

Having a gold runner to accentuate the theme is where all the magic lies. But a plain runner just won’t cut it, even with the gold shimmer. The icing on the cake? Add decor martini glasses with crystals or lights or a glass vase topped with decorative balls. The balls could be another color to break up the monotony of the gold.

For the best compliment, combine the gold with warm, deep-tone neutral shades like rose gold or silver. You can also use white, but choose a warmer shade so that gold doesn’t appear too cool.

Make Extensive Use Of Glitter

Gold and glitter are the dynamic duos for an opulent look. Have the venue covered in glitter if you want to go all out? Alternatively, glistening tapestries, drapes, or tables are a great choice if you are going for a more subtle theme. You could also use champagne or wine glasses that are glittered.

Gold-Plated Flatware

Give your guests a royalty experience by serving them food and drinks in gold-plated utensils. Gold flatware is a kill and doesn’t miss the luxury point.

Gold plated tabletop setting

Write The Guest’s Names On A Gold Leaf

A crucial component of luxury is exclusivity. How exclusive you were in your invitations is mirrored by the fact that you wrote your guests’ names on the seats where they should sit. What better way to add a luxe feel to the exclusivity than having their names inked on a gold leaf?

Gold leaf is a real luxury material because it is actual gold that has been rolled into the thinnest possible sheets. The finest and most delicate decoration. Be careful not to blink or sneeze too hard around it, or you’ll tear it. It’s the delicacy that raises this material to high opulent levels.

Champagne Themed Party

What better way to host a luxury party than a champagne-themed party? Champagne is the epitome of luxury so having a party themed around it? Brilliant. Here is how to get your champagne-themed party to be elegant:

Have A Champagne Collection

One integral part of luxury is having plenty of options at your disposal. Well, providing a wide selection of champagne brands for your guests gives them the privilege of choosing which works best with their taste buds. The wide selection is also a conversation starter that gets people talking and mingling.

If you want to up the ante on the collection aspect, serving a variety of mixtures and extra flavors to go along with the collection of Champagnes is one of the best ideas. Give guests non-alcoholic liqueurs, syrups, and fruit juices so they can experiment as they see fit.

Have Champagne Infused Snacks

For bubbly lovers, Champagne-infused snacks will be the highlight of their night. These snacks are high-end and go perfectly with the luxury theme. Your options will be spiced up if you have delectable suggestions and recipes for your bubbly, such as champagne candy, gummies, or cotton candy.

Pair Your Champagne With The Right Foods

Choose a variety of upscale canapés, cold cuts, and sushi as an alternative. If you want to go all out, there is no better option than the best caviar served on blinis or toast points, which is even more upscale and goes perfectly with good Champagne.

A White Party

A white party is precisely what the name implies, a gathering at which every guest and decor is dressed in white. White is a straightforward, incredibly chic, elegant, and stylish color. The best thing about white is that it has no limits, unlike gold. You can have every decor piece in white and still maintain its elegance.

Here are some suggestions for throwing a chic white party:

  1. First, have all of your decor in white. An opulent ambiance is produced using all-white decorations, including white tablecloths, candles, and balloons.
  2. Have all-white, silver, or gold flatware.
  3. Have white napkins and flower vases with white flowers on the dinner table.
  4. Have sheer white curtains on your outdoor seats to create a stunning effect in your yard.
  5. Put white balloons and white petals into your pool and ensure enough seating for your visitors.
  6. Consider serving only white beverages and food like champagne and white wine for drinks and cheeses and pastries for food. Ensure you talk to your caterer about the all-white theme so that they give you suggestions for extra foods and beverages.

Spa Themed Party

The best part about luxury is the calming effect that comes with it, and a spa-themed party will do just that. A spa-themed party is a perfect way to unwind and start the new year without any stress from the previous one.

The atmosphere of any spa day party is always determined by its first impressions. So present your guests with freshly steamed hand towels on a chic platter as soon as they arrive to start pampering them. This will give them something enjoyable and interesting to do as soon as they enter the room.

A tip for giving your towels a calming fragrance is to add a few drops of eucalyptus or lavender essential oil to a big bowl of water, soak then dry them just before your guests arrive.

Also, you can’t have a spa party without the goody bag. Fill the bag with opulent robes, eye masks, cozy spa footies, essential oils, and headbands.

Before the guests arrive, here’s how to prepare for the party:

Get The Best Masseuse There Is

Ensure you hire the services of the best masseuse there is. There is no better feeling than ushering in the new year after a great massage session. Also, ensure that you get enough masseuses for the guests so that no one feels left out or has to wait for the others to get done with their experience.

Choose The Theme

Choose a unifying theme for your spa party to tie everything together and create a unique environment for rest and renewal. You can choose between:

A natural theme with lots of green to give the natural vibe. This could be through lush plants or succulents, wooden trays and bowls to put all the essentials needed for the spa experience, or eucalyptus leaves scattered throughout the foot soak.

Pastel theme where all the towels, robes, headbands, bowls, and floral arrangements could all be decorated with pastel hues.

Zen Theme revolves around natural colors and, most tellingly, color harmony.

Tones of white, beige, grey, brown, or pastel colors. Mostly the theme is featured in simple furnishings like white ceramics or smooth pebbles.

Choose The Decor

All your furniture should be covered in white sheets and sprayed with a fabric spray to keep it fresh. Also, ensure you have fresh petals mixed with essential oils scattered throughout the space to create a spa-like atmosphere. Also, since your bathroom will be used frequently, extend the decor there. Make sure there are plenty of rounds, cotton balls, tissues, and towels in line with the theme.

Place Candles

Candles, particularly aromatherapy candles, have an unparalleled calming effect. Scented candles, an essential element of relaxation, create a warmth that redefines the warm atmosphere of your bathroom. They are, therefore, necessary if you want to pamper yourself in a spa-like environment at home.

Even candle centerpieces that float are possible. Put a few orchid flowers and tealight candles in a glass bowl and cover them with about an inch of smooth, transparent glass marbles or stones, the immediate perception of a spa resort.

Set The Mood

Put on some slow music to give your guests the best spa experience. Having great music in the background is a game-changer.

Provide A Great Meal

Once the spa session is done, ensure your guests have a healthy meal to dig into. Remember, you shouldn’t have a heavy meal after the session since the body needs all the energy to flush out toxins. After the meal, bubbly is the perfect way to end the night. Popping champagne at midnight after a great spa experience is perfection.

New Years Party FAQs

What can be the new year’s party ideas at home?

Celebrating the new year at home doesn’t have to be boring. So put on your favorite album and dance the night away, create a collage of the year’s favorite memories, or watch your favorite movie.

What is the best way to celebrate a new year’s occasion?

The best way to celebrate a new year’s occasion is by doing what best works for you, chilling at home, going to the club with friends, or spending time with family. There is no right or wrong way; you just need to be comfortable and have fun in your way.

Luxury Christmas Party Event Ideas

By Blog

Do you plan to have a large and luxurious Christmas holiday party this year? If so, you should start organizing as soon as possible to ensure that all your friends, family, and other visitors have an amazing time. Of course, this requires a lot of planning. You must consider invitations, meals, seating arrangements, and, most importantly, the decor.

Any event needs decorations, but it can be challenging to pull them off perfectly, especially if you don’t throw parties often and therefore lack experience. Let’s break down everything you need to plan an unforgettable Christmas party this year.

How Do You Make A Christmas Party Special?

As you plan the décor for your Christmas party, you should consider the atmosphere and other aspects, such as the menu, beverages, and entertainment. The most crucial part of organizing a Christmas party is ensuring that your gathering will be popular with everyone.

Anything, where you can make people feel calm is beneficial. For example, keeping the lighting reasonably low and ensuring the area is easy to access without any challenging passageways. Here are other ways to help you make your Christmas party special.

Hire Personnel To Serve The Guests

Food and drink are also of the utmost significance, despite what would seem obvious. Making sure that people have access to healthy food and beverages, whether alcoholic or not, is crucial in making a Christmas party special.

Long buffet tables or enough personnel to serve everyone are the two options that typically keep guests satisfied. You can also include elements of your theme in the meals you serve.

For example, micro herbs could be used on the canapés if you’re using a lot of foliage, or if you’re going with a gold theme, there are many edible gold possibilities to add to sweet canapés. Again, it’s helpful to connect what individuals eat and what they observe.

Incorporate Varied Scents

Besides taste and sight; there are other senses to consider. You can use fragrances because the different scents can powerfully arouse people’s emotions. For example, a perfume like fir oil can make you feel like you’re in a pine forest, while a more subdued scent like cinnamon can make you feel like you’re entering a holiday kitchen. Although fragrance is frequently disregarded, it is an important element to consider.

Be Authentic

It’s easier to plan an event by considering how it will look on Instagram, but be aware of gimmicks. Whatever you decide must be pertinent. If you can do something innovative and unexpected, that’s fine, but don’t do it only for the novelty of it.

The growth of AR and VR at events supports this claim about technology. There is a small line between engaging in an interesting activity and simply doing it for novelty’s sake. It can be tempting to employ technology because it’s novel and exciting, but the main concern should be if it matches the party. If it does not, people are likely to be unimpressed and bored.

Here are a few holiday event decorations to help turn your home into the ideal luxury venue:

Tableware To Match Your Décor

You might get away with using your tableware if you host a modest dinner party. However, renting fine china is a much better option if there are several food courses at the large party. The more visitors, the merrier, but you may need the dinnerware to accommodate them.

Renting your fine china, crystal, or silver is a wonderful choice because it allows you to choose your color scheme from many possibilities. Consider renting charger plates, table linens, napkins, and matching service dishes in addition to the requisite dinnerware and stemware. These components elevate a table arrangement and give your occasion a hint of grandeur.

Christmas celebrations

Elegant Lighting

Lighting is a sometimes disregarded yet crucial component of party decor. Whether you’re holding a cozy cocktail party or a bright, cheerful dinner, the right lighting will help to set the ideal mood. The best lighting makes people feel welcome, provides a sense of intimacy, and makes attendees want to stay all night long.

A dimmer switch is essential for smaller gatherings since it enables you to reduce the lights and generate a comfortable ambiance. Candles are another option for fostering intimacy. You’ll need bright, clear lighting, such as daylight LEDs, for opening presents or shooting pictures.

What Are Some Good Christmas Party Themes?

Christmas is a time to celebrate and have fun, and what better way to do so than to get your close friends, family, and co-workers together around a table?

With one of these classy Christmas party themes, your gathering will be a work of beauty.

A Cheery Vintage Christmas Party

Joyous vintage-themed parties are always popular, and Christmas is no different. So naturally, the holiday season is when many individuals reflect on joyful memories from their youth. Take advantage of that and throw a classy vintage-themed party focusing on a specific era to keep things lively and cool! The era could be in the 1960s or 1980s.

Ask everyone to dress elegantly in items typical of the period of choices, such as midi dresses, tweed suits, and traditional flat caps. In addition, you can add decorations to the environment by choosing retro-inspired posters, paper lanterns, ornaments, wreaths, and nutcrackers, among others.

A Grinchmas Party

The Grinch reigns supreme when it comes to holiday gatherings. So, instead of inviting your guests for a fun-filled evening of mischief and mayhem, why not have a Grinchmas party? Use a lot of green decorations to set a cheerful mood because this theme is all about green. Items like napkins, centerpieces, candles, and garlands.

Of course, you must also serve the traditional Grinch punch to get everyone in the holiday spirit. You can instruct your guests to dress in a way that embodies the Grinch’s persona, such as wearing anything green.

A Glitzy Holiday Party

Loud, strong, vibrant colors and spectacular holiday decorations that capture the glamour and charm of nightlife are the focal points of this beautiful Christmas celebration. But, of course, you also can’t go wrong by including some disco balls, neon lights, centerpieces, and guests dressed to the nines for this particular Christmas party theme.

At a VIP holiday party, everyone will feel like true A-listers! Consider putting a red carpet runner near the tree so people can take a few pictures there.

Decorating Gingerbread Party

Many American households have a yearly custom of decorating gingerbread houses, whether they make everything from scratch or purchase a kit to make things simpler. To add some flavor, have a contest with prizes for the tallest building or the greatest use of gumdrops.

Maintain the traditional look with icing icicles and peppermint trim, or choose a theme like Barbie’s dream home or a Halloween-haunting mansion. This party is a fantastic idea for a virtual get-together as well; you could send out the recipe in advance to your friends and family, bake simultaneously, and showcase your finished products on camera.

Winter Forest Party

Nature is one of this year’s top contenders for Christmas themes. This theme, which was inspired by the beauty of snowfall and winter forests, will highlight the greatest features of the venue’s décor and provide everyone with an amazing experience.

Additionally, you can easily connect this theme with sustainability by choosing eco-friendly ornaments made of recycled glass and wood. Think about using pine garlands as table centerpieces, pine cones as napkin rings, and branches as a prop to give the entire picture more texture and depth. You’ll take your guests to a fantastic location and demonstrate your concern for the environment, which is always nice!

Christmas In Every Country

We adore holiday party ideas that offer a different viewpoint. Consider hosting a party incorporating customs from many cultures this Christmas for a fresh touch. This party theme might work in a year when travel is scarce. For instance, you can decorate with bright Mexican Papel Picado or Philippine lanterns in the form of stars. It is a fantastic method for kids to discover their own culture or learn about the habits of other nations.

How To Pick A Theme For Christmas

We can see how selecting the perfect Christmas theme could seem challenging. After all, there are a ton of choices available! Instead, we advise choosing a customizable theme to capture the essence of your guests’ culture.

For instance, a Winter Forest theme would be an ideal choice to reflect the goal of being an environmentally conscious individual who supports sustainability.

Allow your guests to decide if you’re stuck. Then, ask everyone to vote for their favorite theme out of a handful you enjoy. This strategy will convey to everyone that you value and care about what other people think. Additionally, it represents your desire for them to enjoy themselves and feel at ease at the party.

What Alternative Kinds Of Locations May I Rent For The Holiday Party At The Workplace?

The following locations are the most common for Christmas parties or events-


Due to the pleasant mood and distinctive atmosphere they offer, restaurants blend beautifully with elegant themes. Additionally, they provide a fantastic array of meal options that you may tailor to the culinary interests of your guests. Additionally, a lot of them have private dining rooms or function spaces, ensuring that you have good solitude.


Bars are another well-liked venue type for events since they offer a fun, less formal ambiance. In addition, due to their broad selection of cocktails and other alcoholic beverages, they are ideal for cocktail parties.

Banquet halls

Because banquet halls exude a professional vibe without being overly formal; they make for excellent venues for business Christmas celebrations. Additionally, they provide enough capacity for bigger gatherings with more than 100 attendees, and you have greater discretion to design the space to produce a distinctive atmosphere.

Bottom Line

As you can see, a Christmas party doesn’t have to be dreary. Quite the opposite, however, there is an assortment of elegant party themes that can boost the holiday event and make it fun and memorable. So, since you have an idea of the luxurious party ideas and decorations, roll up your sleeves and plan the best party!

Luxury Graduation Party or Celebration Ideas

By Blog

Graduating from high school is the culmination of many years of hard work and dedication. It is a time to celebrate all the accomplishments the students have achieved. It’s about saying goodbye to childhood and hello to a bright future. If you ask us, this calls for an epic graduation party!

Curated Events, the premier luxury rental service for high-end events, is here to help make your graduation party one for the books. Whether you’re planning a small intimate gathering or a luxury extravaganza, we have everything you need to make this event truly special. But first, you need to plan your party.

This post will cover a few essential tips for hosting a luxury grad party and provide ideas and inspiration for your event. Let’s dive in!

Tips For A Successful Graduation Celebration

The details of your party are what will set it apart and make it truly special. Here are a few tips to consider before getting down to the nitty-gritty of planning:

Choose an Appropriate Venue

A graduation party is a big deal, so you’ll likely want to hold it at a larger venue that can accommodate your guests. Consider things like capacity, location, and accessibility when looking for the perfect place. There are plenty of ways to go about this, depending on the vibe you’re trying to create.

Beach/Pool Party: Water symbolizes wisdom, freedom, and rebirth, making it the perfect setting for celebrating a milestone like graduation. Hosting your party at a beach or poolside venue can help create an immersive and memorable experience for your guests.

Garden Party: If you’re looking for something less on-the-nose yet equally elegant, consider hosting your party in a lush garden space. It gives you plenty of room to play around with decor and create an elegant, natural ambiance.

Indoor/Outdoor Venue: Of course, an indoor/outdoor space is always a good option if you’re looking for versatility and flexibility. You can have your party indoors in case of bad weather or add a canopy or tent to create extra space outdoors.

Establish A Theme

Choosing a theme for your party will help guide the rest of your planning, from decorations to food and drink selection.

“Each theme has its proprietary color palette and decor items that play a big role in setting the overall atmosphere of your event. Get creative with it!”

Some popular themes for graduation parties include the following:

  • Hollywood glamor
  • Gatsby chic
  • Modern luxe
  • Tropical paradise
  • Vintage elegance

Decide On A Guest List And Date

Next, you must establish a guest list and choose a date for your party. Knowing who will attend is crucial so you can plan accommodations, transportation, etc. You’ll also want to pick a date that works best for both your guests and the venue. It should also allow enough time for planning and prep.

Graduation parties are ideally held during spring or summer. However, try to do it before August, as students will already be busy preparing for the upcoming school year.

“June and July are typically the best months to host a graduation party.”

Stylize The Invitation Cards

Set the tone for your luxe party by sending out elegant and stylish invitations. You can create these yourself or order them from a stationary store. Consider the theme of your party when crafting the invitation so that it reflects the overall feeling you want to convey.

Rent Luxury Decor

As you’ll see in the following section, your party will benefit immensely from high-end decor items. Instead of spending hours scouring the internet and local stores for these, simply rent them through a service like Curated Events. We have an extensive selection of luxury wedding and event rentals at every price point so that you can pick the perfect pieces for your celebration.

“It also makes more sense to rent the decor items instead of purchasing them outright, as you’ll only use them for a limited period. And with Curated Events, renting is easy and hassle-free—visit our website to see all the available options and book what you need today!”

Hire Entertainment

If you want to make your graduation party memorable, consider hiring professional entertainment to liven up the atmosphere. That can include a live DJ, a performance artist or musician, or even an aerialist or fire dancer.

Don’t Forget About Food!

Finally, plan your food and beverage selection for the party. Really think about the vibe you want to create and the type of food that will complement it. You can go all-out with decadent, high-end catering options or keep things simple by serving light fare or a variety of gourmet desserts.

“Since it’s the summertime, (non-alcoholic) drinks like lemonade, iced tea, and fruit smoothies are always a hit with guests of all ages. You can also create interactive food stations with options like build-your-own salads or tacos so that everyone can customize their meal to suit their tastes.”

Luxury Graduation Party Ideas

The above tips will help you plan a truly luxurious graduation party that your guests will remember for years. Regardless of the type of theme or decor you choose, here are a few final ideas to help you take your party to the next level:

Red Carpet Entrance

Start the night with a bang by creating a red carpet entrance leading to your party venue. A long piece of red fabric will do the trick, as long as you can secure it on either side of the entrance.

“You can play fun music and have a photographer on-site to capture guests’ arrival. You can even have them pose in front of the red carpet, creating a fun photo booth moment.”

String Lights For Ambiance

Lighting can make or break the atmosphere of your party. Choose soft, diffused light for a more intimate vibe or bright, cheery lights for a fun and festive feel. Consider allowing Curated Events to install elegant string lighting to increase the ambiance of the environment.

“String lights are a great way to decorate your venue and create a warm, inviting atmosphere. Simply drape them over the rafters or use them to line the walls of your party space. If hosting outdoors, they can be hung from trees or poles, adding a beautiful sparkling effect to the night.”

Decorate The Tables

If a sit-down dinner or buffet is part of your party plans, ensure the tables are properly decorated. This step can include everything from simple tablecloths and napkins to elaborate centerpieces and place settings. Use your theme and color scheme as a guide for your table decor.

“You can coordinate linens and napkins to match your chosen colors. On the other hand, floral arrangements and other centerpieces can reflect the graduation party theme or use elements from the school colors.”

Luxury Lounge Area

For a more relaxed and casual party vibe, consider setting up a luxury lounge area where guests can relax and mingle.

“Sofas and plush lounge chairs are great for this purpose, as are coffee tables and other fancy furniture.”

You can add smaller elements like pillows and decorative rugs to create a more intimate atmosphere. Clearly indicate the lounge area with signage or a separate entrance so guests can easily find it and make themselves home.

“Bar” Station

Although a full bar may not be possible, a “bar” station is a fun way to add a festive flair to the party. Include an assortment of non-alcoholic drinks like sodas, juices, water, and glasses. Alternatively, you could play on the classic “bar” theme and serve a variety of tasty treats like candy bars, popcorn, or other snacks.

“Whatever you decide to include in your bar station, remember to account for food allergies and dietary restrictions so that all of your guests can enjoy the fun.”

Scrapbook A Collage

It’s no secret that people drift apart over time, so give the young graduates a way to commemorate their friendships with a collage. Create a scrapbook where each guest can write a short message or thought about the graduate or add photos from the years they’ve known each other.

Balloons And Flowers

Another way to add a touch of fun and whimsy to your party is with balloons and flowers. You can choose from various colors and styles to match your theme or opt for classic pastel shades for a sweet and sentimental feel.

Whether you use them as centerpieces on the tables or in larger arrangements throughout the venue, flowers and balloons are sure to help make any party memorable.

Graduation Cake

Just like a wedding cake is a signature element of any wedding celebration, a graduation cake can be an iconic element of your graduation party. It can sit pretty on the dessert table, just begging to be sliced and devoured, or it can even take center stage as the main attraction of your party.

Dress Code

Not all parties need a dress code, but if you’re hosting a high-end graduation party, it might be appropriate to have one. It can help ensure that guests are dressed appropriately for the occasion and helps set the tone for the event.

“Note that while Black-Tie or formal events may be the most common, you can also have a more relaxed dress code, such as semi-formal or cocktail, or garden chic.”

You could also go out of the left field and opt for an unusual dress code. Throwback parties or throwbacks to popular film characters are a few fun ideas you could explore.

Food Truck Extravaganza

Food trucks are a welcome addition to any event, and a high-end graduation party is no exception. Consider having several food trucks on hand to serve everything from gourmet burgers and fries to cupcakes and ice cream treats. These might arrive later in the party, or you could even have them set up a permanent “food truck” station for the duration of the event.

Photo Booth

Finally, a photo booth is a perfect way to capture your guests having fun at the party. Whether you go with a classic backdrop and props or get adventurous with unique backgrounds like a carnival theme or outer space setting, you’ll be sure to create unforgettable memories for the grad and their friends.

Luxury Housewarming Party Ideas

By Blog

Buying a new home is often synonymous with starting a new chapter in your life. It’s a time of celebration and excitement as you embark on a journey of creating a safe and comfortable haven from the outside world. And what better way to mark this momentous occasion than with a housewarming party?

Whether you’re moving in with your spouse, kids, or friends, throwing a luxurious housewarming party is the perfect way to show off your new home and welcome everyone into your life. But planning an event of this scale can be a lot of work, especially if you need help figuring out where to start.

This blog post will cover everything you need to know to create the ultimate housewarming party. We’ll cover:

What Is A Housewarming Party/Celebration?

Warm embrace as a guest arrives at a housewarming party

First and foremost, let’s clarify what exactly a housewarming party is. Traditionally, it’s a celebration that marks the transition into a new home. It’s typically an informal gathering of friends and family, but it can also be formal if you prefer.

“A luxury housewarming party takes this idea a step further, with plenty of high-end touches to make your home feel exceptional.”

As you’ll see, there are many different elements to consider when planning your event. Whether you’re hosting a dinner party, cocktail event, or backyard barbecue, planning the perfect housewarming party is all about creating an atmosphere that reflects the style and personality of your new home. You can create an unforgettable experience for all your guests with creativity and forethought.

Start By Preparing Your Home

Before you can start planning the details of your party, you need to ensure that your home is ready for guests. Remember that this is a new space for you, so take the time to familiarize yourself with the layout, figure out how everything is organized, and make any necessary repairs or renovations.

Decide Where You Will Host

As mentioned above, you can host your party in various settings. Some people opt for the backyard because they still need to get furniture or need to buy new furniture. Other people choose their living room or dining room if they already have the furniture and don’t want to deal with getting their yard ready for guests.

“You may also prefer throwing a full-blown party where no area of your home is off-limits. Regardless, it’s best to have a plan in place before you start sending out invitations.”

Measure How Much Space Is Available

When planning the details of your housewarming party, you must ensure enough space for all your guests to move around comfortably. Look at the room available in your designated party area, and invite guests accordingly.

Make Sure You Have New Home Essentials

Finally, you’ll need a few basics to help get your home party-ready. For example, trash cans might be an afterthought, but you’ll need them for your guests to dispose of their trash. Likewise, you may want to buy some extra plates and cups as well as paper towels and napkins, depending on the final menu that you decide on.

Decorate Your Event

Once you have the essentials in place, you can start thinking about decorating your home. Focus on creating an elegant and sophisticated atmosphere when going for a luxurious look.

Pick A Theme

“One way to give your party a sense of style and personality is to pick a theme.”

That can be anything from an elegant garden party to a modern minimalist theme. Then, pull together your decor to match that theme, from lighting to table settings.
For instance, if you’re going for a luxe garden party theme, try using lots of candles and flowers to evoke the feeling of being outdoors on a summer evening. Or, if you’re going for a more modern aesthetic, try incorporating sleek metallic accents or pops of bright color into your decor.

Decide On A Dress Code

Along with a theme, it’s also a good idea to choose a dress code for your event. Note that casual attire is usually the best choice for a housewarming party, as it helps guests feel relaxed and at ease in your home. But if you’re looking to give your event a more formal or upscale vibe, you might want to consider having a dress code that requires guests to wear something a little nicer.

Gather Decor Rentals

Since you’ll likely need a lot of decor for your housewarming party, it can be helpful to turn to an event rental company for help. Instead of buying a bunch of decorations you may only use once, you can rent what you need to make your party look amazing.

Some great rental items for a luxurious housewarming party might include:

  • A large marquee tent for outdoor parties
  • Elegant linens and napkins
  • Comfortable tables and chairs
  • Floral arrangements
  • Catering equipment
  • Lounge seating
  • Heating and cooling
  • Bars and dancefloors

Plan Some Activities

Besides great food and drink, it’s a good idea to plan some fun activities for your guests.

“There’s nothing more awkward than standing around at a party with nothing to do! While you might want to leave things open and unstructured, you could also consider arranging fun group games or activities for guests.”

At the very least, consider preparing the following:

Music Playlist

A housewarming party is not complete without great music! Perhaps you can plan a playlist ahead of time that includes all your favorite tunes. A DJ or live band can also keep the dancing going, or you could set up a stereo system and let guests take turns choosing songs themselves.

Photo Booth

Immortalize your big housewarming party with a photo booth! You can set up this fun activity yourself or have a professional photographer on-hand to take pictures of your guests.

Opening A Housewarming Gift

While the party is undoubtedly the highlight of your housewarming, don’t forget about the gift-opening ceremony! Show off some of your new decor, appliances, and furnishings, and thank everyone for their generosity.

Games And Activities

Consider setting up some fun and interactive games or activities to keep guests entertained and engaged. Popular activities include:

  • A board game night
  • Karaoke
  • A family-friendly dance party
  • A wine-tasting contest

Sending Out Invitations

Once everything is planned and ready to go, it’s time to send out your invitations! Get the word out to your friends, family members, and other acquaintances so that they can mark their calendars for a night of fun, food, and celebration.

Create Elegant Invitations

Your housewarming party is sure to be an elegant affair, so make sure your invitations reflect that. Consider using high-quality paper or a custom letterpress and include plenty of details about the event, including start and end times, dress code, location, menu options, and any other essential information.

Account For Plus-Ones And Kids

Your friends and family might want to bring their partners or children along with them to the party, so be sure to account for these guests in your headcount. You may also want to include a “plus-one” option on your invitations if you have some guests that are not yet attached.

Don’t Forget The Neighbors!

Lastly, don’t forget to extend an invitation to your neighbors!

“Your housewarming party is the perfect time to foster a sense of community in your new neighborhood.”

It’s a good idea to include a small gift for your neighbors, such as baked goods, wine, or even a small plant. You’ll get off to a smooth start with the people living near you, and who knows—you may even make a few new friends!

Get Started With Curated Events
