Midsummer Night’s Gala Event Decor Ideas

A fantastical feast awaits those who attend this midsummer night’s gala! All the stops are brought out for this magical evening. Lush greenery and twinkling lights are at every corner with wrapping vines and warm glowing hues spilling out from the corners and shadows. This enchanted midsummer night’s gala event decor ideas board has a little touch of modern influence to it. The shape and set up of the food display lends itself to trends of today, while the indoor garden lawn lounge allows guests to feel as if they are wandering through a magical forest.

Galas, parties, fundraisers, and even weddings with high guest counts will be the type of events that really make this concept shine. With a high guest count, more space is needed to accommodate those guests, and with that extra space allows for these cohesive, yet distinct separate spaces. A vine covered dining space, a lush lawn for mingling and lounging, and even a quite garden space with a few acoustic musicians. The key to a successful midsummer night’s gala is the decor, and making sure lots of fresh greenery and florals of all sorts of shapes and textures are incorporated.

Here are some of my favorite midsummer nights’ gala event decor ideas:

Modern Industrial Event Decor

This week I am channeling a modern industrial event decor theme with perfect pops of bright orange mixed in for freshness. Cool grays mixed with sleek metal finishes, dusted with slight touches of textures from concrete, garnished with a few pops of bright orange combine to create a soft but masculine event decor concept, sure to please many attendee’s senses.

The high impact piece of this modern industrial event decor, is the entrance. An orange carpet is eye catching, and different. But it’s the length, perfectly edged with silver metal lanterns and coordinating balloons that really make it a statement piece. Mixing gray furniture, with metal textures and accents keeps the event fairly gender neutral and subtle, so the focus could be on the entertainment or other activities going on throughout the event. Fresh floral should be kept to a minimum, so the focus of the decor is towards the clean and curated furniture and displays, and not the arrangements. Having well thought out and strategically placed pops of color will far outshine any arrangement that would be used at this event.

With this particular style of modern industrial event decor, I think it would be well worth the money to spend some time developing unique buffet tables and food displays, such as the French fry tower, or the cubic based salad bar shared in this week’s inspiration board.

Here’s what I had in mind for this modern industrial event decor with pops of orange:
