At a corporate event, your centerpieces shouldn’t be the center of attention, your company should! Here are a few tips when it comes to choosing the centerpieces at your corporate event.
Make sure your centerpieces don’t divert attention. Sure, they should draw the eye to them, but as a completion to the overall look and feel of your event, not as a distraction from it. You want your seated guests to be able to pay attention to the speaker or presentation, not be peering around a mountain of flowers the entire time. The key words here are graceful, sophisticated, and modest.
Don’t be afraid to stray from floral. Sure flowers are beautiful, time-tested centerpieces, but they aren’t a necessity at a corporate event and they can be expensive. Floating candles and petals make a perfectly beautiful and simple centerpiece. And if your event is taking place in the fall, some candles, gourds, and branches are an elegant alternative as well.
DO go with a theme. If your event is taking place on the water and the rest of your décor reflects that, why not use a pile of seashells as your centerpiece? If you are having a fundraiser for a local library, why not incorporate books into your centerpiece? Don’t be afraid to have a little fun with it.
