From creating an entrance with wow-status impact to weaving in a "tropic like it's hot" theme, the team behind Be Inspired PR are sharing their top ten event design ideas and tricks to get your creative wheels turning. Their team hosts all kinds of events for some of the top designers, planners, and influencers in the event industry, so they certainly know a lot about what it takes to pull off a fabulous party.

Considering transforming your end-of-summer backyard barbecue into a Moroccan oasis? Bring on the dried palm leaves and hammock swing chairs, they say. Planning a bridal shower with a Boho beauty theme? Bring along a hairstylist to do on-site braiding with fun accessories, as they recently did at an event.

We just love the bright and breezy style this team brings to the show. For more event design tips, including what company to hire for the best swag bags, read on below.

Create a "Wow" Entrance

A gorgeous entrance is the perfect first impression for your guests to see what's to come. One of our personal favorites is a balloon installation; they always add an extra wow factor to any party! This installation from Kinada Events perfectly complemented the event theme with balloons that tied into the Moroccan paradise color scheme.

Tie in Your Theme with Extra Details

If your event has a theme, run with it all the way! This party was Moroccan-oasis-inspired, so the signage throughout the event was on-brand with tropical puns. Prim & Pixie's custom napkins & floor decals were the perfect way to show off fun phrases like "hot and not bothered" and "tropic like it's hot" to keep the tropical spirit incorporated throughout every moment of this event.

Offer Yummy Bites All Night Long

Provide something easy and delicious for guests to snack on during the evening! Colette's Catering offered a Moroccan bazaar-inspired grazing station and the most incredible "breadbasket" chair display we've ever seen! And of course, don't forget dessert. The Wild Posy created pour-over popsicles that kept guests cool in the summer heat. Guests chose from BABE rosé over fruity flavors like watermelon or strawberry or cold brew over coconut for the perfect sweet treat!

Create Dedicated Spaces for Guests to Sit & Stay Awhile

Lounges are our love language! Multiple seating options throughout your space (like these beautiful options from Collective Rentals and La Pinata Party Rentals) ensure that your guests have plenty of space to sit, eat a bite of food, and chat with other guests.

Create a Special VIP Area

With a little creativity, you can divide your space to create a special VIP section that your guests are going to obsess over! Amber Event Productions transformed this venue's space with luxurious draping that served two purposes: sectioning off the VIP lounge & providing an extra decor element to tie in the Moroccan oasis theme!

Give Your Guests a Unique Experience

When guests aren't mixing & mingling or grabbing a cocktail, you'll want to provide something to keep them entertained! This braid bar from Veiled Vanity Artistry was unique AND fun! Guests could stop by and get a quick hair refresh with on-site braiding, including hoop earrings to weave into the styles and other fun accessories to complement the look.

Provide the Perfect Photo Moment

We're suckers for the perfect Instagram opportunity and this party was no exception! But to ensure your guests have the best place to snap their pics, create a backdrop that they won't want to miss. With a dried palm-leaf background from Bloominous and fun hammock swing chairs from West of Lincoln, this backdrop moment was the hit of the night and gave everyone endless Insta-story opportunities!

Get Guests on Their Feet & Dancing!

When in doubt, dance it out. Tassels & Tastemakers included not just a DJ, but a violinist who played alongside the DJ with today's hottest songs. Elevated Pulse provided the perfect unique spin on party entertainment and kept guests dancing all night long.

Provide a Fun & Easy Keepsake for Guests

Everyone loves a photo booth, and the Smilebooth photo area created the perfect quick and fun way for guests to bring home a keepsake from the evening. No need to worry about special props - just provide some confetti for guests to toss as they get their shots taken and everyone will leave with a smile on their face!

Gift Your Guests with Custom Swag Bags!

Customized gifting options always elevate a party, and the BOXFOX gifting suite in the VIP lounge was the best way to give guests a special experience. Media, influencer, and VIP guests were treated to chic lounge-entry bracelets from 31 Bits at check-in to ensure their entry to the special gifting lounge where they were able to work with BOXFOX curators on-site to create custom-made swag boxes filled with beauty and lifestyle products!
