Boxwood hedges are not just for landscaping; they're versatile event decor essentials. Whether you need to conceal unsightly elements like catering paths or electrical panels or create a stunning photo backdrop, boxwood hedges add a touch of elegance and natural beauty to any venue. Their lush greenery instantly transforms spaces, providing a refreshing ambiance that enhances the overall atmosphere of your event.


2. Felt Table Covers


Upgrade your table settings with felt table covers to add a layer of sophistication and texture to your event decor. When hosting an event with your own furniture, the felt covers act as an insurance policy for your dining room and kitchen tables. These luxurious covers not only protect your tables but also provide a soft, tactile experience for your guests. Whether you're hosting an elegant dinner party or a corporate gala, felt table covers elevate the aesthetic appeal of your tables, creating a cohesive and polished look that exudes refinement and style.  Just look at the difference it makes in the before and after images above!


3. Hand Towels


Often overlooked but essential for guest comfort and hygiene, hand towels are an eco-friendly must-have item for any event. Providing high-quality hand towels in your bathrooms demonstrates attention to detail and hospitality, ensuring that your guests feel pampered and well-cared for throughout the duration of the event. Choose soft, absorbent towels in chic designs to complement your event's theme and elevate the overall guest experience.


4. Outdoor Lounge Seating


Create inviting spaces for relaxation and socializing with lounge seating arrangements. For large summer parties, event spaces like hotels, pools, and clubs can often run out of seating. The solution comes in many forms from weather-friendly sofas and armchairs to chic ottomans and coffee tables.  Lounge seating areas offer guests a comfortable retreat where they can unwind, engage in meaningful conversations, play a game, and enjoy the ambiance of your event. 


5. Patio Heaters


Extend the enjoyment of outdoor spaces year-round with patio heaters, ensuring that your guests stay warm and comfortable, even in cooler weather. Whether they're waiting for valet or stepping outside for some fresh air, patio heaters provide a cozy atmosphere that encourages guests to linger and enjoy the outdoor surroundings. With various styles and sizes available, you can seamlessly integrate patio heaters into your event design, enhancing both the aesthetics and functionality of your outdoor areas.



When it comes to event planning, it's the little details that often make the biggest impact. By incorporating these five unexpected must-haves into your next event, you'll not only elevate the guest experience but also create lasting memories that leave a lasting impression. From lush boxwood hedges to cozy lounge seating and everything in between, these essential items are sure to make your event an unforgettable success.
