I have a confession to make: I’m not a huge sports fan.
Growing up, my mum would let us skip sports days altogether because she hated the idea of us being in the sun all day (thanks Mumsy). In high school, when everyone was choosing a sport they loved, I chose beach walking for my Wednesday afternoon activity. After school, I didn’t play netball, I did drama and dance and pottery.
As an adult, I still don’t really love sport…but I have an absolute obsessive passion for events. The kind of events that are immersive experiences and guests can help but walk into the room and be wowed.
With the Commonwealth Games sneaking up, I have been dreaming about ways to bring a fun and fabulous sports theme to life for any discerning clients who may be hosting a corporate event to mark this significant happening in Gold Coast history.
After trawling through the world wide web, I am completely inspired by the amazing ideas that have been created. Glowing basketball centrepieces, themed food stations, and indoor greens embellished with chic cocktail furnishings are just the beginning. Incredible lighting in contrasting red and blue is the hero , and small details like basketball bowls make the theme cohesive throughout every area of the space. There is so much opportunity to create a fun and vibrant atmosphere with life sized ball props and statement furniture pieces. I can’t wait to do our very own Sugar & Spice version of this amazing sports theme.
If you are planning a sports themed event in honour of the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games, or even just because you love the idea, lets chat!
