It is no surprise to see that guests often dive right in for the open bar and hors d’ oeuvres at events! That said, it is crucial that you make sure your bar set up is attractive, plentiful and delicious for each and every occasion ranging from a casual dinner party to a large-scale corporate conference. Another factor to consider is the style, look and tone of the event and this is where DESIGNER8* comes into play. We carry an incredible inventory of bars and back bar displays that are perfect for every occasion. A favorite when it comes to displaying appetizers, bottles, florals is our Bellini Bar and it pairs nicely with all of our bars – especially the Royce, Diamond Mirror, Aiden and Lloyd.
Below we have a picture of our Edison back bar in silver set up as a gorgeous backdrop with florals at this reception at Terranea Resort. Another helpful hint – remember to place two to three back bars throughout your venue to make sure there is an open flow for guests to mingle and enjoy the summer festivities that DESIGNER8* are experts in designing!

Spring has officially sprung!! Let’s talk outdoor living to add some excitement to your next event!
Looking to bring in the comfort and style of the indoors to the outdoors? We have dozens of amazing outdoor collections to choose from in different colors, materials and styles. These pieces truly help bring the comforts and class of the inside to the outside. Clients want seating to be inviting, comfortable yet practical and no compromising on the sophistication of the ultimate look they are hoping to achieve. Our seating can be put together in various ways depending on the venue and daypart to ensure your guests can easily engage in conversations and dining while enjoying their lounge time.
Our extensive outdoor collections include sofas, loveseats, chairs and coffee tables and side tables. In addition, we offer different styles and accessories for your outdoor seating including accents, pillows, partition walls, lanterns, rugs and more. Take a look at our Barbados Collection, made of sunbrella grade material. Comfort (check) Chic (check) stylish (check).
Stylish accessories such as pillows also add a fun pop of color and punch to any look. And let’s not stop at the pillows! You can complement any of our outdoor collections with any of our indoor collections, for example, mixing and matching coffee and side tables and florals.
What are accessories and do you really need them to complete the look of your event? In a word, YES! Accessories are the finishing touch when it comes to the color, texture and shape of your decor. The role they play is an important one. They reflect your style philosophy and pull your other décor selections together to create groupings that make design sense. To fully appreciate the impact accessories can make, let us consider other examples of things that require a “finishing touch”. Can you picture: A cake without icing? A gift without the wrapping? A little black dress without the right jewelry? Of course not! There’s a reason for the phrase ‘the devil is in the details’. At DESIGNER8*, we offer more than just lounge, bars, cocktail tables, we add pillows, lighting, area rugs, florals or ottomans will enhance any lounge setting and take it to the next level.
When starting the design process, it is important to set aside a portion of your budget specifically for these elements. Clients sometimes go all out planning their event and focus on the major pieces early in the process, only to run out of steam (and finances) to fully complete the space. Accounting for accessories from the very beginning will ensure you to stay on track along the way.
Take for example the lounge setting below on the top and the final accessorized layout on the bottom. The added pillows, rugs, florals, lamp and candles pull the entire look together. It makes you feel invited, warm and leaves you with the thought that your host cared enough about you to make you feel welcome.
Bringing in florals can really put that final special touch on a space. Recently we transformed a masculine bachelor pad into the perfect romantic backdrop for an engagement party by suspending amazing floral designs and accents. For your next party use ceiling heights to your advantage and look at all angles of your space to create a unique ambiance.
