6 Stylish Party Trends For The New Year

1. Charcuterie Boards

You don’t have to be an artist to create a great charcuterie board. Although the word ‘charcuterie’ translates to ‘cured meats’, beautiful boards include more than just that. Instead, the crafty creations combine a variety of snacks like cheeses of different tastes and textures – arrangements of crackers and flavorful spreads.

Our Philadelphia favorite to grab a cheese board is definitely Urban Farmer located on Philly’s historic Logan Square. Combining house-made and artisanal selections, pickled vegetables, and spreads, Urban Farmer’s charcuterie and cheese boards will stimulate your snack senses. These delicious appetizers can be ordered online and normally range from $18- $35.

2. Giant Letters

Just in case your guests forgot whose wedding they are attending, Slay Displays offer custom light up and silk flowered letters that are over four feet tall! These huge displays can spell any name or phrase, including numbers, and are guaranteed to wow family and friends.

Statement art installations are a must for large scale events and provide the ultimate photo spot. Don’t stop at private events – giant letters can be an effective branding opportunity at corporate events & trade shows.

Here are a few of our favorite Slay Display letters:

3. Selfie Photo Booths

Don’t wait for your photographer to edit and send over your event photos, book a digital photo booth instead! Twinkle Photo Booth’s new modern booth captures guests’ candid selfies with instant sharing options and photo strips.

Twinkle designs custom logos and photo templates to complement each event, matching its color scheme and party aesthetic. The LED lights have over 130 color combinations and its touchscreen interface is completely interactive. Looking for a hands-free entertainment option? Each photo booth comes with a friendly attendant to manage the event’s booth.

4. Unique Venues

As far as unique venues go, Philadelphia’s own Please Touch Museum takes the (wedding) cake! With six jaw-dropping event spaces including a renovated carousel and even a SEPTA bus, your guests will be left in awe. Although the museum is currently closed to the public, the venue is still booking special events and weddings. Don’t miss your chance to experience this truly memorable location.

5. Ballin’ Balloons

We know what you’re thinking. Balloons are terrible for the environment.

That Balloon Girl, based in Central Philadelphia, offers an eco-friendly event alternative that is made of completely organic and biodegradable material. Specializing in large scale balloon installations, the company adds color to every one of their events.

While arches and garlands have been a staple at large events, the newest trend in balloon decor is ceilings and walls. These artfully crafted pieces are perfect for photo booth backdrops and event entrances, not to mention they act as an instant conversation starter!

6. Extravagant Flower Arrangements

Flowers have always been at the forefront of party trends. Every year, florists push the boundaries of their craft, creating eye-catching arrangements that keep guests talking. Leading the industry is Be Lovely Co. based in Philadelphia. Lauren and Colleen have a true passion for floral design – their masterpieces have been featured in Harper Bazaar, Philadelphia Wedding, and other coveted publications.
