5 Quirky and Fresh Ways to Style your Function Venue

5 Quirky and Fresh Ways to Style your Function Venue

Your venue is perfect. It has everything that you were searching for – amazing view, fantastic location and a great menu.

Yet, you want more! And better!

We can totally understand why. Melbourne is a vibrant and happening city. There are hundreds of events being organised every day at beautiful venues. So, how do you shine a spotlight on your event and make it one your guests won’t forget?

Here are 5 creative ways to spruce up your venue and make it look spectacular.

Light, Lights and more Lights

– One of the most amazing ways to instantly brighten up a venue is decorating it with gorgeous lighting. Lots of lanterns, fairy lights and spotlighting can totally change the vibe of your function – from bare to perky and cheerful.


Add an Event Wall

– If used suitably, you can get wow reactions by simply putting up an event wall to add character to your event. Whether you use it to jazz up your event, as a backdrop for social media sharing or promote your brand, a bespoke event wall will add style and impress your guests as soon as they arrive.

Skip Basic Linens

– The simplest way to perk up your event is choosing flamboyant napkins, tablecloths and runners and skip basic white linens. Bold and eye-catching blocks of colours on your table will instantly add fun and excitement to your event.

Split up the Space

– Rather than going with the clichéd idea of round tables and dance floor arrangement, divide up space. Set up a lounge area, a cocktail bar and an outdoor seating zone, which will make the event space look welcoming and unique.


Pep up your Glassware


– Forget the clear glassware. Instead go for unique shades like gold, black, cobalt or red and put in instant character to your table settings. These little dashes of colour can have a big impact on how your space looks.


There is a whole bundle of ideas and really no wrong answers when it comes to designing and adding zest to your event décor.
