Party themes and trends 2024

Each wedding or party is unique. The perfect party should reflect the personalities of the hosts, whether it’s the bride and groom or Auntie Dorothy’s 100th Birthday party.

We excited to see that bright bold colours seem to be trending this year and we have a vast range of different coloured sashes and bows in organza and satin.

The use of coloured sashes and bows instantly gives chairs a vibrant new look and can be themed to contrast or compliment any colour scheme.

Bows remain a huge trend online, looking at the pictures on Instagram and Pinterest had a+55% search increase on the term ‘bow aesthetic’. The 2024 take is ‘Bow Stacking’, which means layering bows on everything from hair to shoes to home adornments.

The perfect finishing touch, bows work perfectly attached to gifts and napkin holders but also in the form of garlands and printed on candles.

Bedecked wedding marquee decorations 2024 looks set to be a year of colour, maximalism is back in elevated dining, with all the trimmings, including layers of beautiful candles in a rainbow of hues.

The trend towards more sustainable parties continues with the desire for more reusable partyware. Sustainable weddings are stealing the spotlight in 2024, and we couldn’t be happier. Imagine saying “I do” surrounded by eco-friendly decorations and locally sourced delights. We’re proud to play our part by offering furniture and table centre pieces/decorations for hire Let’s make your special day not only memorable but also kinder to the planet.

Here are three easy tips to reduce the impact of your big day:

Eco-friendly invitations: Instead of traditional paper invitations, consider going digital. Send e-invitations or create a wedding website where guests can RSVP. If you prefer physical invitations, choose recycled paper or plantable invitations embedded with seeds. This way, guests can later plant the invitation, and flowers will bloom as a beautiful reminder of your wedding.

Rent, reuse, recycle décor: Instead of buying new decorations, consider renting items for your wedding décor.

Choose ornaments and accessories that can be easily reused or repurposed after the wedding. If you decide to buy decorations, try to buy second-hand (but often almost like-new) from Vinted or other re-selling sites. Select items that can be added into your home décor or donated to charity or re-sold afterwards.

Local and seasonal cuisine: Opt for a caterer who focuses on using locally sourced and seasonal ingredients. This not only supports local farmers but also reduces the carbon footprint associated with transporting food long distances. Work with your caterer to create a menu that showcases the best of what’s available in your region during the time of your wedding. Don’t forget to discuss composting options for food waste to minimise environmental impact.
