Meet Lauren and Sam, our Event Stylists who love nothing more than organisation, coordination and making sure your event will look FABULOUS.

These girls are design powerhouses who are always on top of new trends when it comes to any celebration, whether it be a 1,000 person gala dinner or an intimate birthday bash at home. With Valentine’s/Galentine’s* Day approaching, we thought what better timing than to find out what is on their radar for this year’s must-have party themes.

What upcoming trends in event styling do you foresee becoming popular this year? How do you stay ahead of the curve and incorporate these trends into your work?

Lauren: Retro Glam will have its moment this year. It’s timeless monochrome colour palette, ceiling installations of florals and mirror balls, checkered flooring and whimsical signage is perfect for a cocktail function or dinner party. It’s almost like Art Deco with a contemporary twist!

Sam: The vintage tennis aesthetic has really made a comeback. I’m currently working on an outdoor event proposal which includes custom arches in a forest green with fresh florals and deck chair seating – very Wimbledon! This theme also works perfectly for a brand or children’s play activation as it can be easily made interactive and fun.

Can you share some insights into the creative process you go through when conceptualizing and planning the overall aesthetic for an event? How do you ensure your designs align with current trends while also reflecting the client's vision?

Sam: We utilise worldwide trend forecasting platforms to ensure we are ahead of the curve when it comes to designing a brief. Firstly, we listen to what the client is hoping to achieve with their event, and then work on a mood board, colour palette and source props from our inventory to make the event come to life – we even upcycle a lot of our stock with fresh finishes and colours to ensure the items are perfect for that specific celebration.

Lauren: We work closely with our Graphic Artist, Kim who takes our design ideas and works her magic to create to-scale visuals of how the styling will look on site. This helps us in knowing what will work and what won’t and provides the client with an example of the styling to make any adjustments if needed!

Prior to designing, we offer a complimentary site inspection to ensure that we are working with the venue’s fixtures, décor and aesthetic and walk through with the client to discuss the elements they would like styled.

Do you have a showroom of items that the public can come and see? Are they able to hire directly from your store for their own event?

Lauren: We do! If you’re in SE QLD and happen to be spending some time in Brisbane, come and visit us in Coorparoo – we have a wonderful showroom that is decorated in trending themes with props ready to be hired directly off the shelf.

Sam: You can either hire us to style your event for you, or clients can walk in and hire themselves. Be sure to check out our hire shop on the website to see what we have available – the list in endless!

If you had to choose one trend to go and one trend to stay, what would you choose and why?

Sam: There aren’t any themes I would necessarily vet, although I would revamp Enchanted Garden with a fresh twist – maybe with an injection of neon, or even incorporate futuristic digital elements and make it immersive. I would keep Hollywood Glam – who doesn’t love a luxe red-carpet moment?

Lauren: As much as I loved the Barbie moment, I feel that we are ready for a fresh colour palette this year – maybe Pantone’s colour of the year of Peach Fuzz will be the new pink!

As for a trend I would keep, Neon Rainforest would be on top of my list for an event I would love to style this year, inspired by the colours and vibe of Tulum in Mexico – leopards are also my spirit animal…
