What is your holiday party style?

You have your venue, now you need to dress it. With the holiday season fast approaching we are busy working on several decor plans for clients and a recent visit with one of our favorite decor companies Blooming Gallery gave us the opportunity to enjoy their new soft furnishings and table decor. One of our clients asked us “do we need to have a theme for our holiday party?” The answer was a resounding “no”

Instead of planning the event around a theme, we are working with our client to develop a style that fits with their company’s aesthetic whilst still evoking a holiday feel to the event. Our story board includes a variety of fabulous linens, winter purple velvet, emerald green velvet and silver leather dot textures inspired. The holiday theme is subtle but the winter style is apparent in these choices. Here a few more suggestions for your holiday season party.

Oversized ornaments adds to event decorations.

Decor and Setup

For decor, think High, Low and Ariel! Mix table decor or bring in large-scale elements that play with height and dimension. For one of our clients, we designed oversized stackable holiday ornaments. The ornaments gave height to the room with  tall centerpieces for the bars and hanging ornaments for the stage

If your venue has high ceilings – work with them, incorporating hanging fixtures from the ceiling will help give your room dimension and with so many options in candelabra lighting you can transform a room,  Most venues will tack on an additional fee for rigging. Totally worth it if you can fit it in your budget. As always, we ensure additional fees are communicated to our clients beforehand.

Houston Community College Foundation Scholarship Gala

Huge ballroom full with rows of tables making you feel uninspired? Think of breaking up the sea of rounds with a fun floor plan that incorporates a mixture of round, square and cocktail tables throughout the room and mix up the height of your tables, Your younger guests love sitting at bar high  family style tables. At the Houston Community College Foundation Gala, we used a mixture of rounds and family style tables throughout the room. We sprinkled in tall fluorescent pink trees to add height and created soft seating around them.

Thinking Outside the Box -Recycling Event Decor

We love to be creatively challenged!

Each year our client meets to discuss their annual fundraising luncheon and the first thing we do is creative brainstorming. This is a client who “thinks outside the box” in everything they do, and each year for the past ten years we are challenged to think beyond the conventional and to bring a new prospective both to the stage production and decor.

Each year a gift of chocolate is given to each guest and the client had a big campaign about to launch, the “HUMAN” campaign. Using our custom chocolate designer we created a bar of chocolate and wrapped it in the the campaign branding, we then placed each in a softball acrylic box and created a tower of 10 boxes on each table. Guests got to take one as their gift at the end of the event.

We love to Recycle!

We had a bunch of boxes left over so 6 months later when their new CEO wanted to hold an intimate dinner for top donors with the meal prepared by students on campus we saw a great opportunity to reuse those boxes in a very different look.

Each box contained flora or fauna in vibrant colors and were placed along the family style table interwoven with soft candles. So two for the price of one….and we are now working on our 3rd idea to use them again for their new campus ribbon cutting breakfast! Stay tuned!

What’s in a Theme?

The Right Theme Can Be the Golden Ticket to a Successful Event.

A relevant theme can have many functions throughout an event and be incorporated into multiple elements from graphics, color scheme, decor and lighting, just to name a few.

eEvents Group had the opportunity to work with HCC Foundation on their biennial Scholarship Gala. We feel very fortunate to be part of their mission to raise funds for local students seeking to achieve a higher education at Houston Community College.


Like every great story, a theme is what carries an event to fruition. So how does it all transpire?

We started with the concept of a Willy Wonka inspired event with an emphasis on the Golden Ticket. The idea was to not convey a child like representation but rather a elegantly inspired whimsical depiction.

We collaborated with our design team to come up with a color scheme and create graphics that would brand the event and build synergy. The design elements inspired initially by the logo transpired throughout the entire event; starting from the save the date, invitation, program, auction booklet and correspondence.


Next, we let the decorations do the talking. Hues of fuchsia, purple, gold and orange linen draped tables filling the grand ballroom. Show-stopping LED trees illuminated guests as they entered the room and took their seats to enjoy the program. Towering, shimmering centerpieces decorated tables while carefully crafted floral arrangements added an elegant flare. We added a whimsical touch to the dance floor by placing a huge decal of the gala’s logo. Candy colored crystals adorned everything from the table chargers, candle holders and stage backdrop adding depth and dimension to the room.


This Willy Wonka inspired theme was a sensational hit with our client and their guests. Let eEvents Group assist you in finding the right theme and creating an unforgettable experience for your next event.
