Turn up the Heat this Christmas with our Cool Fire & Ice Themed Event!

Ever heard the saying opposites attract, well it couldn’t be more true, especially when it comes to the theatrical Fire & Ice event theme by Eventologists, a perfect way to turn up the heat at your next Christmas party. This innovative theme combines two of the most dynamic and opposing elements to create a dramatic play on duality and an ambience your guests will never forget.

The creation of this event has two exciting options with regards to the layout. You can either split your venue into two separate Fire and Ice areas, keeping the contrasting elements apart, or you can fuse the two together for an explosion of heat and frost. Either way this explosion of elements is sure to fuel an event your guests will never forget!

To transform the room into separate Fire and Ice spaces, Eventologists will use red, yellow and orange coloured décor schemes and props across one side to represent the flames and heat of the fire, alongside blue, white and purple décor on the other side to make your guests feel icy cold. Dress it up with a showcase of Flame table centrepieces or Candelabras on one side and Icy Willow or Ice Sculpture table centres on the other. Finally, we will tie this incredible atmosphere together with our amazing Fire Performers and Ice Fairies to provide your guests with mesmerising entertainment, aligning the two themes for a night filled with drama!

If you choose to have these elements separate, an exciting way to split the themes between different rooms ensuring your guests are immersed from start to finish, is to have guests enter via a fiery drink’s reception, with flames, hot beverages and Fire Performers. From there on, your guests will walk through a cool ice tunnel into a room adorned with icy décor and frosty details. This will ensure that your guests are surrounded in the perfect atmosphere for them to ‘chill’ out in as the evening goes on!

If you chose to fuse the two elements together in a mesmerising event exploring the heat of fire and the cold of ice, we can offer a mixture of red and orange draping, icy table centres and frosty décor. You will have both our incredible Fire performers and our elegant Ice Fairies entertaining your guests throughout your event, each showcasing their spectacular element, allowing your guests to chose which is superior.

Whatever way you chose to present this event, the captivating combination of opposing elements is sure to grab your guest’s attention and immerse them in a dramatic event that they will never forget!

Dreaming of Summer? Here’s Our Inspiring Ideas to Create the Dreamiest ‘Midsummer Night’s Dream’ Event

Who doesn’t love a night filled with a mystical mixture of fantasy fairies and wonderful woodlands, all topped off with some love, betrayal and classic comedy? What better way to celebrate the arrival of summer than with an event based on one of Shakespeare’s most popular plays – A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

Let Eventologists bring you a sample of our inspiring ideas to re-create this classic Shakespearean comedy, filled with twinkly lights, luscious foliage, life-sized trees and all things magic at your next big event. Your guests will be away with the fairies as they delve through the mystic flowers and are immersed in the Athens woodland, where as a Midsummer Night’s Dream shows, anything can happen…

As the name suggests, this theme works best at night, the perfect time to set the ambience for a truly mystical and magical event. Since the play is set outdoors you have the ultimate freedom to either hold it in an outdoor venue or to let Eventologists bring the outdoor forest to wherever you please.

Picture an enchanted woodland full of life-sized trees, luscious foliage, gorgeous flower arrangements, sparkling ambient fairy lights and twinkling twig walkways creating the perfect mood for a night of mystery, magic and fun! What more could your guests want than to be whisked away to a land of love, passion, comedy and betrayal…It wouldn’t be a Shakespearean play without it!

Eventologists Brings Spring to life at Wagamama’s Hanami Festival

Eventologists Brings Spring to life at Wagamama’s Hanami Festival

This March, several Wagamama UK restaurants sprung to life with pink cherry blossom clad installations to transform their spaces and create the perfect spring scene for their Hanami Festival.

Hanami, which literally means “viewing flowers” is a time when various festivals are held in Japan to celebrate the blossoming of their springtime sakura cherry blossoms. It’s a time when people come together to eat, drink, sing and celebrate renewal, vitality and the beauty of nature.

This year, Wagamama’s UK has brought this festival to life at several of their locations, including Birmingham (Bull Ring), London (Wigmore St.), Cardiff Library, Manchester and Edinburgh (St. Andrews). The installations started in March and will run for 8 weeks in each location until May 15th.

To bring the beauty of the Japanese cherry blossoms inside, Eventologists’ and Event Trees created bespoke cherry blossom trees and blossom canopy ceilings to fit these particular locations and create a Japanese Hanami festival feel for Wagamama’s.

The logistics were tight as the installs could only happen whilst the restaurants were closed. Overnight, our crew transformed bare ceilings and light fixtures with stunning textures and colours to emulate how incredible the Hanami Festival is in Japan.

What a homage to something so beautiful? And what a great immersive space to devour the flavours of one of the most renowned Asian Restaurant chains in the UK! If only all restaurants could transport us to their roots!

If you visit one of these venues during the festival, we’d love to hear your feedback and make sure to take a selfie and tag us @eventologists.

If you’re a business wanting to know more about how Eventologists can help you create a bespoke theme in your stores, restaurants, cafes or any other venue, please get in touch with one of our specialists today.

How to Continually Wow your Guests when Using the Same Venue Each Year

How to Continually Wow your Guests when Using the Same Venue Each Year

Using the same venue year on year and need to surprise guests? Ever wondered how you make the same venue look the different over and over again? There’s nothing wrong with the familiar! There are so many reasons to book the same venue year on year – great service! Great food! Good location, excellent motorway links, ample rooms that you need – and the list goes on!

However, for guests, the same venue can start to feel bland and they start to second guess what to expect at the next event. Not great when you want them to feel invigorated, excited and ensure that this year’s conference is a game changer! Whilst new venue search is an option, it’s hard to start again as well as trying to relay the company’s key strategic message and juggle the extra work that the new boss keeps piling on you! So, what’s the solution to a completely awe-inspiring conference at the same venue? At Eventologists, we think it’s about delivering newness every time and making the same venue look completely different!

  1. Firstly, the room – if changing the room isn’t an option, then how about changing the floorplan, consider theatre style seating if you had cabaret last time
  2. Change the stage set – wow them with a new stage and backdrop which changes from the day to the evening. Work with your AV company of Creative agency to shake up the status quo
  3. Do cool stuff at lunch – Venues now offer so many more options such as street food to make lunch fun and interactive with finger licking good food!
  4. Add some interactive sessions that they would not ordinarily get to do – It will be a talking point!
  5. Transform the venue from day to evening! If you’ve never had a themed event – dip your toe – trust us, it will be a party that they do remember and look forward to. If a theme is a bit too risky, but you don’t want the event to feel too corporate; use colour, unusual table centres, and nice touches like funky bars and furniture! The less rigid and corporate the event feels the more relaxed your guests will be. Add entertainers that add ambience in the room and create great picture moments. If you had a DJ last year, what about a band this year? Think about the time of year, can you keep corporate but take influence from the time of year – e.g. add an enchanted touch in Autumn and keep it fresh during Spring?

As we all enter an era of complex marketing and sales with social media, unusual venue openings and a plethora of ways of communicating; customers are shopping around each year looking for newness or new venues. Venues who want to retain existing business really need to inspire them with ideas of what their event can be rather than be sold the features of the room. It’s a different mindset to showing the more practical elements of the room but its fast-becoming what venues are focusing on to convert new sales and maintain existing customers. Knowledge of how they can transform the room or partners who can help them to think out of the box is an essential sales skill, especially for customer retention.

If you’re a conference organiser, transforming spaces and venues is much easier than venue search and starting the process all over again! Working with creative partners who will help you to give freshness each year to get 5-star guest feedback is the panacea that every conference planning and event agency strive for. Maybe just thinking about the same differently could be just the answer!

The Psychology of Colour in Events

The Psychology of Colour in Events

Eventologists’ stylists are often asked the question about what colour to use for an event. Whilst colour is about preference or may represent a brand, we believe there is a lot more meaning to colour than being pleasing to the eye. What’s the thinking behind colour? What feelings do changes in colour evoke?  What dynamic colours should be used at events to make those senses open? As an event planner, we don’t just need to understand what colour is on trend, but also the psychology behind the use of different colours. What’s equally important is what colours not to use at different events or to what extent colours should be used.

Different colours can dramatically affect moods and emotions as well as affect that initial impact when we see a room in a colour.  As an event theming company, we are very aware of colour psychology and work with our clients on ensuring the correct mix of colours are selected.

Generally, people will choose their favourite colours for their private party; but, when it comes to corporate event, event managers often don’t have a colour theme in mind if they don’t want to follow the brand colours. This is where we can advise!

The Meaning behind Various Colours

White: signifies pure, clean, innocent in the West; mourning in the East. White creates a sense of space so works well in dark and small rooms. White can also represent new starts, giving a fresh new idea. White is a great colour for its simplicity, cleanliness and idea creation; White is therefore often used in the summer works well as it helps to create a cool and contemporary atmosphere and used for new launches! However, using too much white can mean isolation, loneliness and emptiness.

Black: signifies glamour, sophistication, power, elegance. seriousness, control and independence. However, in sharp contrast it can also mean death, darkness and frightening. For that reason, it’s a great colour for black tie gala dinners as well as a colour for Halloween or haunted themed events.

Red: represents heat, passion, intensity, it’s a racy colour which creates strongest emotions such as love, lust, anger, evil – some of the most extreme emotions are represented by red which can make the heart beat that much faster! It is not surprising that red is a popular colour for lighting and theming for a variety of exciting themes such as moulin rouge, burlesque, Vegas themed events, Fire and Ice themed events or even masquerade themes!

Yellow: is a happy, optimistic, warm, zingy colour that draws attention to the eye which is why it’s a great day-time event colour. But when used in excess yellow can also be too overpowering and stir up emotions of annoyance and frustration. This is why many people team yellow with whites and blacks or multi-colours to become an accent colour rather than the dominant colour.

Pink: Pink is a softer version of red that creates a sense of compassion, hope and unconditional love. It’s a colour that soothes and represents care, understanding and nurturing. It’s often linked with romance as it shows empathy and sensitivity. Excessive pink at corporate events can mean reduced power and or even immaturity. For that reason, pink is often used as an accent colour with other colours at corporate events.

Green: always has many positive connections with nature, earthliness, growth, health, tranquillity. It’s a powerful colour as it creates a calming

atmosphere, feels fresh so its colour that relieves stress and helps heal. It’s often used for chill-out spaces and networking events to create an ambience of relaxation.

Orange: is connected with motivation, vibrancy, energy, excitement; as such it creates a positive attitude and enthusiasm for life. As such orange is great colour for bringing comfort in turbulent times and creating a sense of fun or freedom for your guests; for the very fact that it is an attention-drawing colour, it is often used at charity events or launches.

Purple: Purple is most commonly known for its imagination and spirituality, royalty, wisdom, wealth. People see purple as colour linked with luxury, extravagance, courage, mystery and magic. However, avoid using it too often as it can also cause distraction. Purple is often used lighting for events especially chill out areas and bars for its very powerful emotions that it stirs up!

Blue: is known for its trust, peace, loyalty and dependability. It’s reliable, responsible and mentally soothing as it lowers pulse rate and body temperature and creates productivity. It’s one of the best-liked colours, especially by males. It’s a perfect colour to use for corporate functions however it can be perceived as distant, cold or unfriendly if used in excessively. Often it is purposefully used to create ice themed events, underwater themed events or sometimes used to create an eerie atmosphere.

We hope this guide provides a guide for your next corporate event. Whilst colours have positive and negative meanings, we always say to clients to be daring with colour which will set apart and leave a lasting impression on your clients.
