Transforming A Space

Let's turn it into your vision, it can be done!

When planning any type of event, it all starts with ideas and builds from there. Your idea serves as the foundation, regardless of the location you choose. At Eileen Smith Events, we specialize in transforming our clients' ideas and venue spaces into reality. We understand that the prospect of location transformation can be overwhelming when faced with a blank setting. However, we are here to guide you through the process and provide you with helpful pointers on where to start, ensuring you create a full and vibrant event that matches your imagination.

No matter the setting – whether it's indoors, outdoors, tented, in a house, barn, riding ring, or high school gymnasium – you want to wow your guests. One crucial aspect that achieves this is your choice of colors and textures. When planning an event, you typically have a theme in mind, and that theme often comes with a specific color scheme. It's important to select unique and subtle styles that tie into the space. Regardless of the theme, there are always colors that will complement and enhance its overall impact. Colors and their combinations create a mood and transport your guests into the desired atmosphere. Color permeates every aspect, from lighting and flowers to centerpieces, furniture, linens, and even food options. By incorporating your chosen colors throughout the event, you communicate your vision clearly and leave no room for ambiguity.



Optimally utilizing your event space involves dividing it strategically. This can be achieved by creating different rooms within the space using backdrops, walls, draping, or even a dance floor. Such divisions provide depth and intricate design details instead of having everything right in front of your guests as soon as they enter. Backdrops or walls offer a cost-effective way to eliminate the blank space while establishing the tone and feel of your theme. They can be adorned with materials, designs, and decor to add texture and serve as excellent photo opportunities. To create different shapes or rooms, draping can be utilized, covering all angles and allowing you to mold the space to your desired vision. If creating distinct rooms isn't feasible, aim for different nooks within the event space. People enjoy exploring and discovering various spaces, which adds more elements to your theme. Consider incorporating cozy seating areas where guests can mingle and appreciate the intricate details you've put into the design. You can also have a dedicated food section within the same room or create a separate area altogether. Angle tables, set up food or beverage walls, create tiers, and remember that everyone loves food. Whether it's a buffet, candy, ice cream, appetizers, or desserts, it all intertwines with the overall theme, enhancing the experience.



To conclude, transforming a blank event space into a vibrant and immersive experience requires careful planning and attention to detail. Starting with your ideas as the foundation, you can bring your vision to life, no matter the location. By incorporating colors and textures that align with your theme, you set the mood and transport your guests into the desired atmosphere. Dividing the event space strategically, whether through backdrops, walls, or creative seating areas, adds depth and intrigue to the design, allowing guests to explore and discover different elements of your theme. And let's not forget the importance of food! Incorporating a dedicated food section that complements your theme enhances the overall experience, delighting your guests' taste buds and further immersing them in the event. At Eileen Smith Events we understand the intricacies of event transformation and are here to assist you every step of the way, ensuring your event is a memorable success. So, let your imagination run wild, and let us help you turn your ideas into a reality that will leave a lasting impression on all who attend.
