How To Decorate A Hall For A Party To Impress Your Guests

March 25, 2024by Vivaldi Venues

You’ve chosen a hall for a party and now you’re faced with the task of decorating it. A large space can feel overwhelming, but having the right tips and tricks up your sleeve can help you create an event that is perfectly decorated and sure to impress everyone on the guest list. Here’s how to get it done. 

Consider the First Impression of the Hall for a Party

First impressions matter so you want to pay special attention to the entrance of the venue so that you can wow your guests as soon as they walk in the door. Make the entryway grand and dramatic, sticking with the events theme so that your guests are hungry for more and want to quickly get inside to start the party. 

Divide it Up

Decorating a large space can be a daunting task, so it makes sense to enlist as much assistance as you can find. At the same time, dividing the space into sections gives you a smaller area to decorate for the purpose of that area – dining versus dancing, for example. Backdrops and centerpieces are fun and functional ways to break up large spaces and create cohesiveness with your decor. 

Consider Lighting and Covering the Floor

The lighting at your event will set the mood. For that reason, be sure it’s not too light or too dark. Consider the purpose of the celebration when you choose the lighting. A small gathering will feel cozy and warm with lower lighting, while something brighter may be more in tune with a large birthday party or wedding. 

Most venue halls have flooring that is more functional than visually appealing. If you don’t like the tile, carpet or linoleum in your chosen location, consider renting a dance floor or carpeting that covers it up and ties together your decorations at the same time. Some venues may have these options available, but in some cases, you will have to rent them from another location. 

Use Your Imagination

Decorating should be enjoyable and you have a lot of room to be creative for most events. Choose a theme and color palette to get started, but don’t be afraid to go a little crazy and do something unexpected. Maybe you have a photo booth for guests or the lighting mimics being under the sea. Whatever your grand idea, go ahead and put it into action as you host your celebration.

Don’t Forget the Finishing Touches

You don’t want to go over the top and overwhelm your guests with the decor, but keep in mind that the little things make all the difference. Whether it’s cute soaps in the bathroom or place settings so guests know where to sit, make sure you add the right finishing touches to your event.
