Whether you’re planning a wedding or a corporate event, taking a less-traveled road can be daunting. Hosting a traditional wedding reception or company event is in many ways a safer and simpler option, but taking a break from tradition can be liberating, and it does not mean settling for a less than a well-planned and completely enjoyable event.
As an Atlanta party rental company, we’ve assisted couples and corporate planners in picking out event equipment and merchandise for their rustic-themed event. Below are some ideas you can consider if you too are planning to go this route.
Keep It Simple
Much like the lifestyle that inspired it, a rustic-themed event is all about simplicity. It is less crystal goblets and champagne and more spiked lemonade and mason jar glasses. Rustic events are down-to-earth with a more casual atmosphere and a laid-back approach to partying.
Lower stress levels and fewer opportunities for plans to go awry are only two of the advantages to keeping your event simple. Additionally, creating a relaxed, care-free event setting is a good way to make sure your guests will feel and behave in exactly the same way. Give your guests a chance to distance themselves from the cares of their ordered existence. Let them revel in the liberating beauty of simplicity, if only for as long as your event lasts.
In keeping with your rustic-themed event, be sure to serve foods and beverages that embody the values of simple rustic living. Have plenty of fresh farm produce, desserts from fruits in season, and drinks like pretty-in-pink hibiscus-flavored lemonade. Find a creative and ingenious caterer who can plan a farm-to-table menu for your guests transforming ordinary, humble ingredients into the shining stars of the buffet table.
You can go all out and hold your event in a barn for an authentic rustic setting or simply make rustic elements center stage in your decor. If you decide to hold your event outdoors, we partner with a premium Atlanta tent rental company and can supply you with tents of all sizes and configurations. Do remember to choose activities and entertainment that reflect the theme of your event to give your guests the full taste of rustic fun.
