When it comes to planning the perfect event, some things never change. There are certain elements (like an elaborate spread of food or an eye-catching color scheme) that elevate any event. They’re timeless! When it comes to trends, however, the arrival of a new year means out with the old and in with the new. Here’s a peek at a few on-the-rise 2023 wedding and event trends we’re anticipating seeing more of this year…and beyond!

Maximalist Décor

With in-person events making a major comeback in 2022, nothing says “celebration” quite like maximalist décor. This look entails bold colors, a mixture of textiles, elaborate table displays, and accessories galore.

A colorful couch like our Belmont Sofa or Oxford Sofa is the perfect statement piece to provide a foundation for accessories like throw pillows and patterned rugs. This trend will take any event to the next level! Pictured here is a bold couch with our Stella Stool to add some seating to this fun space.

An Emphasis on Themes

Themes are all the rage these days! Who doesn’t love getting an invitation to dress up for a Garden Party birthday or an anniversary with a Retro Disco vibe? Fun, unique themes are here to stay—and in 2023, we’re predicting that they’ll be kicked up yet another notch.

Theme Inspiration: Western Boho

The Boho look is a mainstay on the event scene, but party throwers are taking things one step further this year by incorporating elements from the Wild West.

Set the tone for this look by positioning our Georgia Sofa next to a Henry Arm Chair and striking Brown Cowhide Stool. Add succulents, a desert-inspired color palette, some cowboy boots, and a little ranch water, and you’ve got yourself a party.

Theme Inspiration: Garden Party

The Garden Party look isn’t going anywhere in 2023. In fact, we predict that this concept will only be dramatized—in the best way. Pastel color palettes, twinkling lights, and structured floral arrangements create a dreamy backdrop for weddings, birthday parties, and corporate events.

Our Boxwood Wall is a staple piece for any Garden Party. When it comes to furnishings, we suggest choosing neutrals that allow the colors of your linens and tabletop decor to pop, making our William Dining Chairs a must. Our Amelia Stage Facade or Jackson Stage Facade are the perfect way to frame a stage in style. Combine these pieces with stunning florals, and voilà—your romantic Garden Party event is sure to wow.

Residential-Inspired Decor

While we don’t think ballroom galas are going anywhere, comfort has become a priority at even the most formal of events. Residential Decor gives a whole new meaning to the phrase, “Make yourself at home!” Picture this: chic yet comfy couches, lamps to add much-needed light, and beautifully ornate rugs strewn about.

We’re obsessed with this inviting yet impressive event trend, which will make your venue feel like an extension of your personal style and home. Start with a stylish lounge area, and swap out traditional dinner seating for a Lane Banquette. Then choose accessories like lamps and rugs according to your preferred interior design style. In the end, you can’t go wrong with décor that’s both purposeful and beautiful!
