Happy New Year folks!
Here at Festival in a Box HQ we are gearing up for another year of fantastic festivals, eclectic events and wildly inventive weddings. We’ve pulled together our thoughts on the colours, themes and elements of what we think the events in 2016 will look like.
2016 is the year of the Rio Olympics, so Summer parties will reflect the colour and show of the world’s biggest carnival: Blend Sambadrome madness, beach volley ball, brightly coloured feathers and silk decor, with cachaça cocktails, brazilian sea food and fejoada. What fantastic elements within a festival style party.
SLEEPING UNDER THE STARS
Glamping at festival style parties has been on the rise over the last few years, with gorgeous bell tents and sleeping under canvas. This year will see a trend for the more luxury glamping options – gleaming and top of the range airstreams, shepherd’s huts and gypsy wagons to name but a few.
GIMME SOME STREET FOOD
The rise of the market and street food stalls has been steady over the last couple of years. These will become even more popular at private and corporate events in 2016, as event planners realise their diversity and reputation for delicious and creative catering, at competitive costs.
On the wedding scene, we’ll see a continuation of in 2015’s trend of outdoor weddings – complete with banquets in the woods, eye catching colourful structures and bold, oversized floral designs.
