This month, the Studio team forecasted the hottest event design trends for the coming year at our very own Pennway Place. 5 themed rooms awaited our guests, each more exotic than the last. Savory and sweet bites from Lon Lanes Inspired Occasions tempted our taste buds and cocktails by Signature Events got the night off to a great start. Lighting by Innovative Lighting and Design helped set the scene. Custom backdrop photo opportunites were made possible by Icon Production, as well as time lapse video of our interactive art pieces.

Layered Garden- Light, airy fabrics and layers contribute to the soft feel of this theme. A muted color palette focuses attention of the elements- texture, light, and movement. Glass structures give dimension to the floral while billowing clouds create a smooth transition between the design elements. The layered garden look is perfect for elegant weddings and intimate dinner parties.

Infinity- If you’re looking for a statement, look no further. Citron green and mirrored textiles create a look that is straight out of the Seventies. A custom mirror ball chandelier sparkles over the room. Infinity walls add unexpected depth to this showstopping look. The mirror-top walnut table is overflowing with cymbidium orchids and green pincushion mums. Disco never looked so good. This look is perfect for the host or hostess who wants to be unforgettable.

Home Spun- From the runway to home décor, hand woven patterns create a soft, chic look with beautiful texture. Here, cross stitch is the name of the game- appearing in everything from the textiles to the lighting. A color palette of pastels draws attention to the details. This toned down look makes for a subtle but gorgeous statement- perfect for any occasion that aims to impress.

Urban Views- Looking for something a bit more edgy? This urban inspired look is graphic and clean with just the right amount of punch. A bold color palette transforms the everyday into extraordinary. Geometric patterns reign supreme. Simple, but innovative fruit centerpieces create a memorable tablescape.

Neon Pop- Bright, bold, and guaranteed to electrify the evening. A bold color palette asserts itself in this retro, Eighties look. Pops of neon come into play in fabric, textile, and floral. Fun is an understatement. Skin becomes canvas, as models are covered in glow in the dark neon paint. Guests had a blast creating this living artwork, and the models had fun too! This theme is perfect for guests who want to let their hair down- because there will be plenty of hairspray on hand to hoist it back up.)
