Back to the Future

  • May 25, 2017

We love seeing new trends emerge in event styling each year and there is no denying it, the 80s are making a comeback!

Runways across the world are showcasing denim on denim and bright bold neon colours.  Online presence is turning more towards these neon shades and geometric shapes and individuality in style is the key for the next fashion season.

We always see these trends translate into the event space and have been inundated lately with enquiries for 80s event theming.  It is such a great style to work with as the bright pops of colour bring such fun to an event and you can not go past the music and pop culture element!

So how you can incorporate this theme into your next event?  Here are five easy steps :

1) Entertainment.  Your DJ or Band will be pivotal in ensuring that you have all that fabulous music from the 80s to get everyone in the mood!

2) Pops of Colour.  Neon everywhere!  Light up furniture, rubix cube bars and seats, colourful light up table centre pieces.  All these pieces will give your room that iconic 80s feel.

3) Arcade Games.  Introduce a chill out area or games room with all the favourites form the era like Pacman and Space invaders

4) Fancy Dress.  Make it an event that guests can come dressed up to.  Everyone will love getting the perms, denim and leg warmers out!

5) Graffiti. The graffiti movement really took hold in NYC in the 80s and this is an awesome addition to any event.  Have a custom made graffiti piece done live at your event or incorporate your company’s logo in a graffiti artwork.  The style and look can be used on screens and backdrops around the room as well.  We love incorporating this artwork in our 80s events.

So if you are searching for the next theme for your corporate event we think this is an awesome one to choose.  Check out our gallery for more images of events we have done with this great theme!
