Prepare Your Event Facility For All Tastes

Posted by on

Event venues have the never-ending challenge of trying to be all things to all people. In other words, these facilities must pull off many different types of events, all while accommodating countless unique tastes, requirements and budgets. At the same time, event facilities do not have the luxury of unlimited storage space, so planners often try to pick either neutral furnishings and linens, pieces that can be mixed and matched or multi-purpose pieces.


The traditional wedding is still the most common type of wedding. It’s usually the go-to wedding type you see in most movies and television shows--large, floral centerpieces, light or white colored linens, with the accent wedding color(s) threaded in throughout.

The one thing that can vary a lot is the event size. One weekend it may be a wedding for 150 and the next weekend that traditional wedding could triple to a size of 450 or 500. At these times, it’s helpful to have stackable chairs like x back chairs or lightweight wood folding wedding chairs to add to the number of required banquet tables.


For the bride who dreams of a more modern or contemporary wedding, this can involve a setting with more sleek lines, clean looks or having the latest trends in design, colors, floral accents, etc. With such events, furniture selection is essential for helping pull the look together. Whether the desired look is for a taller, straight back chair with a unique color, like the clear, gold or silver chiavari chairs or there are plans for a separate, cool bar/sitting area, chiavari chair bar stools can elegantly complete the look.


Every wedding is formal in its own way, but some brides really want to take this element to the next level. Often, dark table linens and napkins are the order of the day, as are the accent colors such as a wine or hunter green color. Silver or gold are sometimes used as accents; other times one or the other is selected as the primary color for the room. At such times, striking the right tone with seating is absolutely essential. Black x back chairs are often a staple for such events as are the elegant chiavari chairs, where the black, champagne, gold, silver or rose gold options are a perfect fit. Matching kids chiavari chairs are also available.


Rustic weddings speak to more natural materials and settings. Some companies even prefer to take sales or executive teams away to such settings at lodges and mountain resorts to offer an extreme opposite to the hectic, everyday pace of their jobs and lifestyle. While there, it gives them time to focus on team building, planning, education and networking in a more relaxed setting.

Rustic events like to bring nature inside, from more natural looking centerpieces and accents to more muted colors to natural lighting and candles. For such events, wood folding banquet tables or farmhouse tables and x back chairs--also known as farm chairs--and made of elmwood with a durable bentwood back, are a popular option. Not only are they stackable and lightweight, but x back chairs at Coast to Coast Event Furniture come in a large variety of wood finishes like gray, walnut, natural, driftwood and light brown. For those event facilities wanting something even more unique, these color palettes are taken further with options like hand scraped natural, medium natural with white grain, and lime wash wood grain.

Themed Rooms

Themed rooms today are only limited by the imagination...well, maybe the budget as well! Whether a wedding is to have an exotic, Moroccan, desert oasis look, a Caribbean tropical paradise or focus on a single color in a chic and upscale way, it can all be put together in a single dining or banquet hall. One planning facility in downtown Columbus, Ohio, has a permanent room called the Ivory Room, [in case you want to use site or amazing picture: ]. This Cameron Mitchell Premier Events facility not only takes full advantage of it panoramic view of the city, but uses table linens, dinnerware and gold accents everywhere to give that ivory or champagne look. It completes the setting with beautiful gold chiavari chairs.


Seasonal events like holiday parties or corporate holiday events are also a mainstay for event facilities everywhere. Holiday weddings have also become increasingly popular as couples plan weddings with a winter or Christmas theme, a Valentine’s theme or even, sometimes, a tie-in to Halloween can happen!

This is when the white chiavari chairs, white x back chairs or even white wood folding chairs can serve double duty for your facility. Silver and gold are also popular options, depending upon the decorating look.

Corporate Events

Corporate events come in all varieties and sizes -- recognition ceremonies, holiday parties, regional or national sales meetings, product roll-out events, company merger celebrations, and others. Most of the time, the corporate entity or its reason for the event, such as a new product line, needs to be the star of the day so it’s important to take this into account for room set up, lighting for corporate signage, logos, products, etc.

Such events often quickly grow in size with staff, spouses, corporate friends, clients, industry people, and even the media being invited to attend. Sometimes, these are formal dinners or buffets, but often these are mingle and meet events where you may need to have small table/seating groupings. Chiavari bar stools, Tolix bar stools and cocktail tables can be the answer for such settings.
