What To Include In Your VIP Customer Night Event Budget
In a previous blog post we discussed how you can organise a great VIP night.
The very first item after the venue and refreshments (people will stand a long time to listen to a company announcement if the catering is first-rate), are the themed props and furniture to set the scene.
Hire props and furniture
Did you know not being able to sit down somewhere comfortable is one of guests' top event peeves?
Props and furniture are essential in making your VIPs feel special!
If you're looking to create a special VIP area for your celebrities to relax, hire glamorous velvet lounges with matching armchairs.
They look great in lounge areas, around the dance floor or next to the bar and your VIPs are sure to appreciate having a place to rest.
Unless it's a breakfast event -and even then - your guests expect to walk up to a bar to order a drink, or freshly squeezed juice.
There are so many ways you can make your bar area interesting, from bar carts to fun accessories!
Our three tier gleaming gold bar cart provides a fabulous display for your glasses, champagne bottles or set with candles reflecting light of the mirrored base.
Perfect for intimate VIP cocktail parties, Christmas functions or exclusive drinks product launch.
Long rectangular dining tables are the current trend for events.
Just two of the advantages of communal dining tables are that they take up less space than round tables and allow intimate conversation with your immediate neighbours.
Our wooden 8-10 guest tables will provide a rustic feel for your VIP event perfect for product launches, lolly buffets or communal dining table.
Treat your VIP customers to memorably sweet gifts
Sweets provide the perfect treat for your VIPs. They can be enjoyed during the event or as take-home mementos that promote your business or product.
Our strawberry towers - available in a variety of sizes - will be the star of your lolly buffet!
And it's fruit - so that makes it part of you daily 2 and 5 serves, doesn't it?!
Coated in white, milk and dark chocolate you can customise your strawberry tower to be coated in a variety of colours and toppings, such as gold paint, gold leaf, dragees, swirls or marbelisation to match your event colour scheme and branding.
Another fun VIP customer treat idea is to order our scrumptious macarons customised with your company brand slogan, logo or product photo for your VIP dessert bar?
The macarons come in six colours and delectable flavours sure to make your VIPs mouth water.
Everyone loves gingerbread so why not send your VIPs home with our customised corporate gingerbread biscuits?
Event lighting hire
Event lighting hire is crucial is setting the right atmosphere for your VIP event.
We've sourced everything from antler chandeliers for a macho expo stand to thousands of LED pillar candles to illuminate a warehouse.
Flattering, warm lighting will make your guests feel comfortable and relaxed.
Our flameless LED amber pillar candles create a warm glow throughout your venue.
They are a perfect alternative when your venue won't let you use real candles because of fire risk or mess from melted wax.
They look fabulous inside our rustic lanterns, too!
Whether you have a rustic warehouse with ceiling beams, a garden location or a pretty staircase, these just look empty if you don't add fairy lighting.
Fairy lighting creates an instant festive party atmosphere. You can install it just about anywhere if it's battery-operated, too.
Consider getting fairy lighting strung from the beams, wound around trees, popping up in centrepieces, draped over the mantelpiece, wrapped around the bannister or a curtain of fairy lights installed at your entrance to make a huge impression.
