Planning a Central Pennsylvania event may be a harrowing experience if you go to it blindly. Make life easy for you and walk down this path with a bunch of killer tips and tricks. Think like a professional and pull off an affair to remember with these ideas.

  1. Make the most of your location.
    Pay close attention to the venue and do a walk through, taking note of features that are worth highlighting. For example, there may be a grand spiraling staircase, meandering walkways, or a grove of trees. Find elements that can be spruced up or downplayed to lend maximum effect for your event.
  1. Light it up.
    A glowing venue creates incredible memories. For your event, see to it that the lighting is perfect to create the right ambience for the party. Don’t worry, you go the do-it-yourself route and not exactly need the help of pros. Mood setting is easily achieved with the help of a bunch of luminaria flanking an outdoor walkway or maybe using elegant candelabras to add drama to a dining table. Alternatively, you can simply replace clinical white bulbs with amber ones for a quick change of atmosphere.
  1. Dress the entryway up.
    Set the right tone for your event by dressing up the entryway so that the first glimpse of the party already makes an impression on guests. It does not have to be icredibly grand. Beautiful front-door decorations can be simple and low key but still score serious design points. Try swags of greenery or candles.
  1. Pick a theme.
    Make your event more personal by bringing in elements that show your style or character. It can be a color pairing, food spread, flower arrangement, or a monogram. Repeat this element to unify the event and add more spirit into it.
  1. Be clever.
    While the usual choices are safe, thinking outside the box can lead you greater rewards. For instance, fitting one long banquet tabl in a modern space can look more flattering than adding several round ones. Also, instead of the common floral centerpiece, try using a silver bowl of sugared fruit for a stunning alternative to your event.
