Why is event styling important?

For large-scale events, event styling is important in attracting and pleasing a crowd in a memorable and exciting way. Event styling isn’t just about party decorating. Aesthetics and decor are important in representing you or your brand or business to create impact, start conversations and boost the enjoyment of guests.

Must-Have Event Styling Elements

Stick To A Theme

Having a clear vision for your theme will give your event a cohesive style. Your theme covers the tone and goal of your event. Consider who is coming to your event and what they like.

“Some people look for a beautiful place. Others make a place beautiful." 

– Hazrat Inayat Khan


We have all kinds of event furniture collections available for event styling to match your theme and impress guests. These collections include Mediterranea, Miami, Elements, Bloom, Brasserie, Casablanca, Coastal, Cresence, Loft, Opulence and Shibui.


Your events can also be influenced by seasonal trends and you can explore here.

The Power of Colour

Colour can be a big part of your theme. The use of complementary colours and proper accents infuses your event with personality and interest. Colour can also reflect your branding and messaging.


Lighting Matters

Creating a warm environment with floor lamps, light fixtures and table lamps will make your space glow. It will add the perfect accents and ambience to your event space. Remember that people will want to take photos, so it’s important to provide “Instagrammable” lighting.


Flowers and Greenery

Nature will always bring life to a space. Floral arrangements, foliage and plants will give freshness and draw attention to certain areas. Choose colours and shapes for flowers, pots and vases that reflect your theme!

Textures and Layers

Layering your space with cushions, throws and rugs will add texture, unique focal points, elevate the ambience, and pull the overall look together. It gives personality and a point of difference to other events.


Having different textures is important to add interest, balance and stop the space from feeling flat.


Signage and Branding

For business events, it's important to reflect your brand and goals in your event styling. It can be a great marketing and social media tool for both before and during your event. Give your event a unique name that you can use for your event to create designs and signage. 


Our creative team at Valiant can custom design and build signage, media walls, bar inserts and so much more. Have a look at our events gallery.


Seating Arrangements

Optimise your space! Depending on your event, not everything has to be tables and chairs. You can always introduce some couches, stools, cushions, pouffes and ottomans to create a cosy and welcoming feel to your space. Consider the number of attendees and make sure that everyone will be able to get comfortable.


Tablescapes and Centrepieces

Tablescapes and centrepieces will add personality and life to your event. Create a feature of interest in spaces that are usually empty. Make sure tablecloths, runners, place settings and centrepieces reflect your theme and have a sense of cohesiveness. Flowers, candles, vases and ornaments can create height, give ambience and add colour.


Unique Personal Touches

Accent your event space with colour or unique decorations to draw attention. You can do this with big and beautiful lighting fixtures, art or centre settings. Adding a focal point to your space will give height and grandeur to your event.


"People make events into stories. Stories give events meaning."
