It’s hard to believe that 2 years ago I was going to concerts and clubs packed wall to wall with people, navigating bodies to get to the dance floor. Coordinating weddings in halls so packed we had to open doors and windows to cool it down. Children’s birthday parties were a myriad of germ sharing, and sweet baby shower guests were greeted at the door with a kiss on the cheek.
I can not imagine willingly putting myself into any of those events in this current time. Even with vaccinations on the rise and slowly relaxing event restrictions, we will never go back to the old world of events. If I am being honest I think that is a good thing. When lockdowns, stay at home orders, and social distancing began the event industry, like many other industries were crippled. Many said the event and hospitality industry would not survive the pandemic. Rather than fading into the background, the social event industry changed. No longer could you invite 50-100 people to stick them in a room with mediocre entertainment and expect to have a successful event. We had to think outside of the box and we got previous event florists partnering with local family owned restaurants creating pop up floral and plant shops to remind the community to shop and support small. Wedding caterers and bakers did virtual classes and at home baking events. Charity events and festivals turned virtual.
In the past year so many new trends and shifts have happened in the event world and in this new blog series I am going to talk about some of them, give my opinions and if I think they will and should last.
Let me know if any trends you would love to see or have seen. Also let me know if you think the trends will last!
