5 Up-and-Coming Trends in the Event Industry

Events of every budget and size are challenging the norm and incorporating bold, forward-thinking trends. Event companies all over Jacksonville love to provide clients with never-before-seen decor and features. From edgy furniture to unique themes, the Mugwump team is here with the top event trends of the season. 

Garden Parties are the Go-to Theme for Fall, Spring and Summer

This posh theme is a breath of fresh air for weddings, dinner receptions, and galas everywhere. Garden parties effortlessly combine seasonal floral arrangements, crisp linen, and white furniture to bring this theme full circle. 


While this look tends to be on the feminine side, the Mugwump team can make the decor and accents subtle. Simply opt for fresh flowers and a white tablescape to achieve this look without going overboard on pastels and soft touches. 


Encourage Togetherness with Community-Style Tables

Nothing says family like a long, well-decorated table with fresh food and great drinks. Elongated tables began as a trend in the wedding industry and have trickled into events of all kinds. This is a fabulous set-up for awards galas, retirement parties, and luncheons. 


A long garland with bright greenery and assorted flowers is our favorite way to style a community table. Complete the look with votive candles, wall-to-wall string lights, and Chivari chairs


Sleek Details Add a Modern Vibe to Any Venue Space

Sometimes less is more when it comes to decorating for an event. A contemporary look is achievable in venues of all kinds. Whether your event is at One Ocean in Atlantic Beach or at the River Club downtown, even the most traditional spaces can be transformed.


Clean lines, bold decor, and minimal accents are key to a contemporary theme. Ghost chairs, strategic uplighting, and white plush furniture are favorites for this look. Your Mugwump event planner has the expertise and access to on-trend decor you need to keep this theme on point. 


Foodie Florals are the Next Big Thing in Centerpieces

Beautifully combine fragrant flowers with bright citrus for a tablescape like no other. This look pays homage to Italy when you intertwine lemons with bougainvillea, peonies, or hydrangeas. Whatever your theme, foodie florals are a great garland or centerpiece addition.


Mugwump’s on-site florist specializes in custom bouquets to accentuate your theme and tablescape. Unsure what theme you want to achieve? Meet with our team to create the perfect look for your event. 


Tropical and Boho Accents are Here to Stay

One of the best things about living in Florida is the year-round outdoor party weather. While shabby-chic and rustic decor swept the nation a few years ago, tropical and boho decor has taken over. 


If a boho look is your goal, natural greenery (think eucalyptus, myrtle, and lemon leaf), cream linen tablecloths, and string lights are a must. Tropical-themed parties are a little more colorful. Bright hydrangeas and hibiscus are the perfect complements to curated 3D props and bamboo chairs.
