Spring Has Sprung…
Spring is around the corner, which means the colourful, vibrant and fresh event décor and nature-inspired themes are back in vogue for corporate events. We have conducted a number of spring-themed events and springfests, and it is not hard to understand why they are such a big favourite with every type of audience.
Spring themes for events like corporate gala dinners, activations, experiential campaigns or live communications convey the idea of ‘new and fresh’ and that is exactly the message brands want to send out at the beginning of the year.
Another reason for the popularity of the spring theme for events is the feeling of happiness, joy and prosperity we tend to associate with everything that is colourful, fresh and blossoming – it strikes a chord with everyone.
Global Event Management offers a number of event solutions utilising the spring theme for event décor, set design, gala dinners, experiential marketing campaigns, activations, brand launches, entertainment and virtually every event requirement your organisation may have.
Sakura Matsuri, the Cherry Blossom Festival, is celebrated every year in Japan. Botanical gardens often have a section with cherry trees and lilac trees that would make the perfect backdrop for this theme. Groups can celebrate with their own Sakura festivals.
Put a spin on a bridal shower theme and create an April Shower event with rain-inspired decor and activities.
It’s a time when students head to the beach. Bring lounging chairs and beach umbrellas into a function room or throw an event at a waterpark or indoor beach and groups are all set.
It was a movie and a song we all remember. This theme can be the starting point for an event with a Parisian flair reflected in decor and menus.
Immortalised through the movie starring Fred Astaire and Judy Garland, it’s a rare opportunity for employees to get dressed up. Get creative. Easter events are perfect for best hat contests, flower arranging competitions, and even afternoon tea.
Originally introduced to celebrate the birthday of Queen Victoria, this annual spring celebration in Canada is on the 3rd Monday in May. It’s become a celebration of the return of warm weather.
Spring is the time for vintage and luxury car owners to take the automobiles they’ve stored for the winter for a spin. So throw the event at a car-themed venue and play upbeat 60’s music about cars. Alternatively, groups will welcome the opportunity to get out of the office and hop in cars for a scavenger hunt or urban safari. Have them follow clues that lead the group to a mystery reception or lunch location. If groups have the budget, go for a luxury car event.
Whether groups select from Mardi Gras, a Caribbean Carnival, or an Italian masquerade ball, a carnival theme will add drama and excitement to any event. Groups can also bring a nostalgic spring carnival theme to life with booths of games and midways.
Pastels are a trendy color scheme for any spring party. Amp up the vibrant vibe with a bright pastel palette like this sorbet-colored party theme that’s perfect for a bridal shower, birthday party or Mother’s Day brunch.
Most companies don’t have the budget to take all their employees on a hot-air balloon ride, but a hot-air balloon theme can be a close second. Set up a Wizard of Oz-style, hot-air balloon basket indoors for a creative backdrop and photo op.
Not only can fruit make a colorful decoration for a springtime event, but the wooden, citrus boxes that oranges and lemons are delivered in can also make the perfect signage or display towers at an event.
As the saying goes, “April showers bring May flowers,” and that sentiment is what makes parasols or umbrellas a fun, themed decoration. Hang them upside down from the ceiling for a whimsical ambiance, especially if a breeze is expected to twist and turn them.
