The glitz, the glamour, the site of Bradley Cooper sauntering down the red carpet with those sparkling blue eyes…
Oh, to attend a red-carpet event!
Okay so, whilst we can’t promise you any Hollywood heartthrobs, we can promise you a red carpet style party just as show stopping as the Oscars. Whether you’re throwing a sporting event, a charity gala dinner or simply a red-carpet themed birthday bash, arriving at a party and walking down that famous red carpet doesn’t have to be reserved to the A-listers.
Instead, inject some class (and cocktails) into your event and follow our simple guide to hosting a party that’ll have your guests feeling like film star royalty.
Keep it Exclusive
When it comes to crafting a full red carpet style atmosphere, exclusivity is key. Hiring out a full venue is the perfect way to create a sense of occasion – after all, it’s an invite-only party so if you’re not on the guestlist, you’re not coming in! Fight the red carpet crashers off and hire opulent events space Bond for full access to the dancefloor, bars, private bathrooms and intimate booths. 10/10 for luxury, it’s the dream venue for your Oscar worthy private event.
Red Carpet Ritz
It’s time to roll out an actual red carpet, and we’re not messing around. An ideal way to get your guests posting and sharing photos of the occasion on their social media, the red carpet is a must have feature sure to get the likes rolling in. Who doesn’t want a profile picture on the red carpet?
Wow your guests with the full red carpet experience and organise professional photographers to act like paparazzi upon arrival. It’s all about getting ‘papped’ on a night like this, Kardashian style. If you do have some celebrities on the guestlist, we recommend organising some red carpet interviews too! The event specialists at Bond can organise professional photographers to document the night too.
Canapés & Bubbles
Well, it wouldn’t be an event without champagne upon arrival, would it? Once your gorgeous guests have walked the red carpet, greet them with a flute of champagne, delicious cocktails, or some kind of delicious mocktail. Turn it up a notch and provide a champagne tower too – only the best for your guests of course. Since you’re hosting a high class event, the menu needs to top dollar. We’re talking modern cuisine, exquisite canapes – and lots of them!
More is More
When it comes to throwing a red carpet style event that will get people talking, more is definitely more. Make sure that your invitations state the black tie dress code and encourage glamour, at all costs. Be sure to have as many photo opportunities as possible too, from photo booths to media walls, guests are always excited by areas like this at events. Want to stand out? Get playful and give out awards to your guests. Like we said, more is more.
