Will your event be a blur?
Appreciating pretty things can help you with stress. When beginning to consider decor and centerpieces for your special event, choose a centerpiece and decor that you love and will put a smile on your face! Because organizing an event can be stressful and stress can affect your memory, it’s important to have things around you that will bring your spirits up. Adding decor and items that you enjoy looking at, can help. When you start to feel stressed make a conscious effort to focus on things that make you feel good like a centerpiece you designed that reminds you of your passions.
Choose decor that speaks to your heart. Pick a centerpiece with elements that are personal, inspire you and make you feel good! Also, what speaks to your passions and the passions of other celebrated individuals at this event. Combine miniature props with beautiful flowers or floating candles. Add colors that lift your spirit. Some obvious examples of props, for sport celebrations would be basketball themed items, a golf ball tee’d up, a tennis racket in a vase of flowers and so on. Award banquets are a great event to have themed displays that are also gifted or raffled to attendees, which adds to the fun.
If it’s a wedding, the centerpiece should be representative of both people. Maybe there’s an activity or a place where the couple met that could be brought into the display. A bouquet of daisies with miniature bicycles for the gal that loves daisies and the partner that bikes. If the couple likes to spend weekends at the beach, then a beach themed
centerpiece could bring fond memories as the two admire on the display.
A display with miniature horses at the horse lovers birthday party. Mini high heel shoes would work for the fashion conscious one.
I love deep orange roses, the ones that are almost red and go to almost yellow in the middle. They look like floral fire to me! When I see this color of roses I just have to stop and admire them and smell them if I can get close enough! Stress and appreciation don’t happen at the same time. So stop and smell the roses!
Diffuse the stress that will cause the blur
Remember, if you start to feel the stress. Maybe you notice you’re not breathing. Take a deep breath and pay attention to the beautiful work you’ve assembled. Notice your centerpieces and decorations. What do they represent? Are they beautiful? Take time to reflect, observe and appreciate. Before you know it, you’ll be in the moment and in a great mood! As you focus on positive aspects of your party you will remember it as a great event and so will your guests!
