To Balloon or Not to Balloon

by Lucy Kelly

That is the question!

When planning an event, specific details such as balloons (whether organised by stall holders, sponsors or even planned installations) could be a small and insignificant element compared to the task of supplier management, marketing or the legal behind your event.

May Style Files

by Katie Tomkins

Goodbye autumn hello winter!

Winter is the time for comfort, good foods and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire. While the LOUD team love a "Winter Wonderland" theme, this month we are focussing on an earthy, foresty, warm and cozy winter theme.

Add lots of textures to eminate winter layering - fur, feathers, fabrics and wooden twigs and slabs to echo the sparsenes of a winter forest. Oak barrels and hardwood planks make for simple food stations that suit the theme wonderfully. Let the LOUD team style your cozy winter event by getting in touch today!
