What's Your Theme!

A lot of my clients are now beginning to think about their theme! Whether you are planning your Wedding, an Anniversary Party, Sweet 16th or any other Event the starting point (after the budget) should really be the style and theme, this will help you decide upon the next most important decision - where to have your Event?

For some of you coming up with your theme maybe simple.. it could be that famous 70's party you've been bragging about or an Elegant 'Ritz' style wedding you've been dreaming about forever. But for those of you who are thinking 'I don't know what my theme is' I would suggest you start pulling together some 'Inspirations Boards' either electronically or in a scrap book.... browse on line and find things that you like or cut pictures out of magazines and stick them all together and sure enough a trend will start to shine through.

Once you have decided upon a Theme - STICK TO IT! This will ensure your theme is carried out throughout your event and you won't end up with a mis-match of nothing special.

So what colours are you thinking of? These colours should be followed through from your Invitations, to your flowers, to your decorations & cake and so on... Are there any cultural or family traditions you would like to incorporate. What about you or the person you are throwing the party for - are there any personal traits that you can include that could make it unique?
