Melbourne Cup Day 2017 - Styling Trends

Melbourne Cup Day 2017 - Styling Trends

  • June 08, 2017

Melbourne Cup Day is fast approaching so now is the time to start thinking about what you are going to do for your event.  This year we are predicting three different trends that will be popular.


Think Royal Ascot and Flemington.  Hedges and topiary trees, white picket fencing, archways and horse statues.  The feeling is almost like and English rose garden!  Classic and always very popular, we have so many great pieces for this look.  We can create a custom arch entry to your event with signage, provide clean crisp white hi bar tables and stools with matching sofa’s.  Decorations for the room can include topiary balls in urns on pedestals, picket fencing and giant horse head statues.  Finish the look with our huge 2.4m jockey props that are suspended on a Perspex stand so look like they are racing to the finish line!

Spring Racing – A Pop of Colour

This is a more modern take on the traditional look and is based on incorporating a bright pop of colour to your event.  Colour is amazing for daytime functions as it brings vibrancy and joy to your party space.  This year we think that a white base with pops of fuschia and yellow would work beautifully for this theme.  Our velvet sofas and ottomans in fuschia will be the focal point and these will be mixed with white sofas, with scatter cushions in pink and yellow.  White hi bar tables with yellow or purple stools around the room and centre pieces of yellow rose pomadners or pink and yellow gerbera’s all combine to create a fun, spring look for your event. Finish your bar look with white gardens screens and purple uplighting to really add wow to the space.

Luxxe – Black and Gold

Want something a bit more moody and sophisticated?  Then the very on trend black and gold look will be the one for you.  High end black sofa’s, black screens, luxe black and gold bar and beautiful hi bars and stools will create this elegant style.  Add in a splash of red with some florals to soften and your guests will really feel they are being treated to a VIP experience!  This is very a glamourous look perfect for a high end, black tie function.
