How to Create A Stylish Winter Event – Levian Events

The team at Complete Function Hire enjoys working closely with Melbourne’s most talented event designers and stylists to help create exceptional events and perfect weddings.

Levian Events go above and beyond to create the most special occasions. With their full range of event services including wedding and event design and styling, the team at Levian Events are a team of creatives that loves adding a touch of magic to every event including beautiful florals, spectacular centrepieces and elements of technical audio and visual lighting solutions.

On this week’s blog, we were thrilled to speak to the passionate team at Levian Events to explore the latest trends and to get their tips on how to create stylish events that stand out this winter.

What makes winter events so memorable?

Winter events are memorable as clients tend to explore different themes and styles. Themes can be Winter Wonderland to Enchanted Forest – this becomes fun when clients are completely invested in the theme and allow us to work our magic!

For clients that don’t necessarily want a particular ‘theme’, we can experiment with different colour palettes and tones that complement the winter months. These tones can either be quite classic with neutral, muted tones or darker, richer tones for a more dramatic effect.

Levian Event’s style tips:

Don’t be afraid to experiment with deeper, richer tones in winter months.

Use lighting where possible to enhance settings and interiors.

What are the Levian Events team’s event styling predictions for the cooler months ahead?

Rich and warm colour palettes will be a popular choice for wedding and event planners this winter and candles throughout your event space will add a romantic touch.

We love classic colour palettes for winter, incorporating greys, blues and whites. For those clients that like to experiment with colour, our team loves using burgundy and red tones with abundant dark foliage to create drama.

We enjoy introducing more lighting in winter such as fairy lights and festoon lights which creates a gorgeous atmosphere. As guests will arrive to evening events in the dark during Winter, we love up lighting the exterior of venues to create an impressive entrance.

What are the Levian Events team’s top tips for corporate event planners to ensure a stress free experience in the lead up to their event this winter?

• Research a style or theme that you prefer
• Establish a budget for all aspects of your event
• Get organised early to avoid stress (e.g. source suppliers and obtain quotes)
• Keep regular contact with your chosen suppliers
• Don’t leave things to the last minute
• Delegate, delegate, delegate!

What’s new at Levian Events?

Recently we have been working on some very large scale events that have allowed us to be extra creative and really think outside the box. Something that has been very popular for us of late is hanging features for weddings and events – this is something that we really special in.

Speak to the team at Levian Events to make sure your Winter Event exudes style and really stands out.
