Trending Elements For Holiday Parties

We pride ourselves in creating exceptional, one-of-a-kind events and holiday parties are among some of the favorite event environments we create! There’s an excitement that builds each year as the holiday party season nears. We love that by creating inviting and innovative holiday parties we allow guests to begin celebrating from the moment they arrive. 

In this holiday design blog we’re sharing two trending elements that can make a difference in the success of your event: lounge seating and buffet decor. Learn more about how you can incorporate these elements into your holiday party plans – or, connect with Your Event Solution and see how we can create your perfect holiday party that includes them!

Holly, Jolly Lounge Areas
Adding a seating area (casual or formal) to your holiday party is an effective way to add an element that’s both decorative and functional. Lounge groupings that include sofas, chairs and side tables are a special touch that leave a lasting impression on party guests. With Your Event Solution's inventory we design groupings around a variety of colors and styles. The addition of LED lighted furniture, pillows and other accessories give each grouping a unique look that ties into a wide range of themes. Mixing and matching furnishings also adds a dramatic visual impact. Lounge seating areas work particularly well in large spaces where they help to define your event space. But whether a large or small venue, lounge seating areas provide intimate areas for people to gather and network. These are a few of our favorite YES designed lounge areas:

Rockin’ Around The Holiday Buffet
Designing and decorating food buffets and bars are a favorite for our team year-around. Food and beverage service for an event are elements that can make or break the success of a party. When clients decide that a buffet will be their service of choice we work with them (or their caterer) so that the theme of the decor is carried throughout all areas of the event. We find that building an interesting and appealing holiday buffet design is all about layering. For holiday buffets we start with a linen or table base that fits in with other room elements. From there we build drama by adding height and interest with props that pop and sparkle and invoke the ‘spirit of the season.’  From candles to sculptural holiday pieces we design buffets that people want to visit for food service and for the visual experience! These are a few of our favorite YES designed bars and buffets:

Have You Seen Our New Logo?

We find that designing for special events is an ever-changing landscape. There are many factors that feed the trends – from fashion to technology to the economic times that you're currently in. So when we set out to redesign the logo for Your Event Solution (YES) we knew it had to boldly represent not just what YES is now, but what YES will continue to be in the future. After much engagement with our team we're proud to present our new logos. We've changed our look on the outside to reflect the progress we've made on the inside!

The winning logos are two that represent the core service divisions within Your Event Solutions and each shares the tagline of "dream. create. achieve." We expanded the color palette from red/black/white to a contemporary red/turquoise/gray for the logo that represents our corporate and tradeshow design work. To define the brand of our expanding social and bridal design services we chose to push forth a charcoal/white version of the identical design. By modernizing the logo design and customizing for each division we now have the best of both worlds and a better way to apply branding that will serve us for years to come.

When you view the logo design what does it bring to mind for you? Some say it has an aspect that incorporates a flower —and that’s no coincidence because our environment designs very much include the art of floral design. Others think the artwork looks like fireworks — and that makes perfect sense, too, because we dream, create and achieve WOW for our clients in a spectacular way for every project we do. Ultimately, we just hope that you love the new look as much as we do. And stay tuned, we have more exciting YES updates coming this year!
