(Tempe, Arizona) – The New Year is nearly here, but will your party shine? Whether you’re hosting an intimate gathering or a large soiree, here are five ways to make it on top and on-trend, according to Jack Weiner, CEO and founder of kool. Party Rentals in Downtown Tempe. As the largest event and party rental and lighting vendor in the West and the third largest in the nation, Jack has worked with the Superbowl, NBA Championships, the Waste Management Open, the Ben Roethlisberger wedding, Hugh Hefner parties at the Playboy Mansion and more.
Mix it up
When it comes to furniture and decor, mix it up, Jack says, “Layer acrylics, metals, woods and fabric to create interest and texture and to make the event pop.”
Set the stage
Incorporate centerpieces to set the tone and manner of the party. Jack advises, “Make sure your centerpieces fit the overall theme that you are aiming to portray, the centerpiece is the statement maker.”
Think mix and mingle
According to Jack, parties are becoming less and less formal with time, the more opportunity that is created for casual conversation and meeting new people, the better the flow. He says, “Cocktail high boy tables provide a comfortable, less formal atmosphere and encourage people to converse.”
Engage your guests with activities and gaming opportunities. “From poker, to Blackjack to illuminated dance floors, keep things fun and engaging with a little friendly-competition,” adds Jack.
Candy bars, doughnut walls and chocolate centerpieces are currently all the rave. “People love to get creative with food and its always an attractive impressive addition to any party, not to mention, super “Instagrammable,”” Jack says.
