How To: Throw A Killer Holiday Party!

Everybody’s favorite time of year is right around the corner. You know what that means? Parties, parties, and more parties! From quaint dinner gatherings to outrageous holiday blowouts, your social calendar is sure to overflow the next few months. If you want to join in on the fun and throw a party of your own, there are a few simple tips to keep in mind. Here’s the best planning advice you can find, straight from one of the top event companies in Jacksonville: 

Strategic Lighting is Crucial to a Beautiful Event

The easiest way to set the tone for your event space is to illuminate the venue with specialty lighting. From beautiful uplighting to brand-specific Gobos lights, the Mugwump event planners will transform your venue into a holiday escape. 

Not sure where to even begin? Don’t worry, we have this under control. Mapping out the lighting is key to a fantastic party, although it’s one of the requirements that’s often overlooked. Rely on the experts to create a design perfect for your theme. 

Equip Your Venue with Top-Quality AV Services

Audio-visual production isn’t reserved for large conferences or extravagant weddings. It’s important to perfectly blend the sounds and sights of your event to create an immersive experience. 

Mugwump partners with our sister company, Sight & Sound Productions, to choreograph all audio-visual aspects. We also offer individual equipment rentals to make your holiday party the best it can be. 

3D Props are Key to an Unforgettable Holiday Party 

There’s no better way to customize your event space than to work with our artists to create custom 3D props. From oversized Christmas ornaments to life-like turkey statues, no design is out of the question when you work with the experts.

One of the main aspects that sets Mugwump apart from other event companies is our commitment to every element of the event design. 3D props are a unique way to impress your guests and elevate the theme. 

Over-the-Top Centerpieces Set the Tone for the Evening

Beautiful tablescapes are a pivotal design element for events of all sizes, themes, and budgets. Mugwump’s in-house florist works closely with our event designers to create table designs that highlight your theme. 

A great way to appeal to your guests’ senses is to combine candles, fresh flowers and colorful linen. Everything they see, smell, hear, and taste should be reminiscent of your overall theme. 

Promote Your Business through Custom Logo Lighting

Have you attended an event where fun patterns or logos float around the walls of a room? Those stencils and projections are called Gobos lights. You can fully customize the design, pattern, or phrase to place in front of a light source and project around the venue. 

The Mugwump team loves to use this design strategy to add another customization element to holiday parties. Gobos lighting is an excellent way to spread some holiday cheer, promote your business, and captivate your guests.
