Must-Have Micro-Event Trends

Thu, 07/23/2020 - 09:00 | by PEAK Team

Hosting a micro-event this season? Create an unforgettable, socially distanced celebration by incorporating these ideas:

Top it Off

Create a stylish food or drink display with a head-turning table lid. Not only does a table lid keep your linen in place and stop it from blowing away, it’s instantly elevates your display, making your display table part of your event décor. (Added bonus, table lids are also easy to wipe clean if anything spills!) We offer several variations, including: Kona Wood, White Wood and Metal. Looking for a way to keep your beverages cool and looking good? Our six-foot Raw Bar is the perfect solution.

The Charger Plate is the New Dinner Plate

Enhance the look of your table setting while keeping dishware to a minimum by swapping out your dinner plate for a charger plate. Using a charger plate gives guests extra room for food, and also adds a stylish element to your tabletop. Another idea: use charger plates in place of traditional platters for displaying and serving food.


Make a Statement

When it comes to having a smaller event, little details matter. Take the opportunity of having a scaled back guest list to focus on your event’s design and go all out with your tablescape. Make your place settings pop with a printed napkin paired with colored glassware and sleek flatware.

Create Conversation Nooks

It’s important to host an event your guests will feel comfortable at. Multiple lounge areas offer a perfect space for guests to gather and relax. Add extra high and low cocktail tables to accommodate social distancing rules so your guests can converse safely and in style.


Social Distance-Friendly Dining

If you're looking for an easy way to create social distanced dining, opt for larger tables with fewer seats; we recommend seating 6 guests at a 60" round table or farm table versus 8-10 guests.  If you want to create an even more intimate dining experience, consider using our smaller cocktail tables with settings for up to 4 guests at our 40" round or square farm tables.

Don't Forget Your Favorite Large Event Elements

While the size of your event may be different, it doesn’t mean you can’t incorporate some of your favorite large event elements into your smaller gathering. Set a sweetheart table for couples so they can carve out some one-on-one time during their big day and add a stylized table for gifts or giveaways. Create an escort card display with hedge or wood walls, use one of our stylish bars as a display station for food or cocktails, or use a back bar display or wire shelves to display photos, guest books or gifts for guests.

Add Flooring

Get the feel of a venue in your own backyard or in your outdoor space with our customizable flooring options. Our team can seamlessly add floor over parking lots, on grass, over a pool and more. Use flooring to create a special area for your couple’s first dance or, if your state allows, build an oversized dance floor so your guests can dance while practicing safe social distancing.
