While this may be the most obvious tip, it should not be overlooked. Placing bunting in an undecorated room instantly increases the appeal of the area and will make guests want to stay longer in the room. In addition, its inexpensiveness causes it to be one of the most cost-effective decor choices you can make. In a decorated room, placing bunting in complimentary colors to the room decor can also solidify your theme to guests. Bunting can also distract guests from undesirable aspects of the room. For example, a room with unattractive ceiling tiles can have bunting placed in a scalloped pattern across the room. By adding a changing slope to the rows of bunting, you are directing the attendees' eyes toward the bunting path and not to the ceiling.
One of the worst catastrophes an event can have is confused guests. If your event spans several rooms, consider bunting that spells out a phrase. Place the bunting in hallways to guide guests on their way during events. Guests will no longer have to find someone to ask for directions as these directional cues are available to them. Popular phrases include food, restroom, and exit.
If your event has dedicated parking attendants, hand waving flags can be very valuable. These hand waving flags can even be customized with your event's logo on them. Unlike an inert sign, waving objects catch the eye of drivers and passer by. This alerts your guest as to where they should be parking, saving them potential frustration from additional time driving around or parking in an area farther away. In addition, this results your parking attendants look more official and your entire event seeming well-organized to attendees. After all, the entrance experience will be their first impression of your event.
As mentioned in #5, typical signs placed on telephone poles or stuck into the grass are not eye-catching. If your event doesn't have a set guest list, such as a garage sale or car wash, bunting can help advertise. Bunting with the words "garage sale" on each panel is available or you can spell out the words like in #6. Hang the bunting on fences, trees, and other tall objects around your yard. You can also ask neighbors if they would be willing to have directional bunting hanging in their yards. This unique approach will guarantee more people know about your event and attend.
Bunting & hand flags are great for more than just events. They can be great pieces for everyday decor as well. If using purely bunting purely for decoration, consider allowing attendees to take sections of the bunting home with them. This is especially appropriate at birthday parties with children in attendance as the colorful decorations can be particularly pleasing for young children. In addition, scrapbook enthusiasts may want to save a piece of the bunting or hand flag for their photo and memorabilia albums. By allowing guests to take a piece of inexpensive decor from your event, they have a positive reminder of your occasion for a long period of time after the event has finished.
In any event, you will want to make your guests feel welcome. This is especially important in international events, as cultural values may differ between participants which makes it harder to please everyone. One easy way to make everyone feel welcome is to have bunting & hand flags of their nation on display as part of the event decor. Doing so will make each guest know how pleased you are to have them in attendance. In addition, other attendees will see how well attended your event is internationally.
If your event has assigned seating, hand flags can help your guest remember where they should be sitting. Similarly, if you will be splitting your attendees into smaller groups, the flags will direct the group to one another. As mentioned in #3, this also allows your attendees to have an inexpensive keepsake from the event.
For assigned seating, guests can receive a flag upon check in that corresponds to a flag on their table. Unlike the traditional number approach, this provides a visual aspect, making it easier to find. Also, the flags can correspond to your theme or color scheme unlike numbers, which may seem boring. For example, an engaged couple that loves traveling could choose world flags for seat markers for their wedding while a couple that loves sports could choose flags representing their favorite teams.
At many skill-building workshops, large groups are split into smaller ones to work on exercises. Often times, a count-off method (1,2,3,4,1, etc.) is used in order to create groups with random attributes. However, this can often lead to people forgetting their number by the end of the chain of changing their number to be placed into a more desirable group. Instead, pass out flags to your attendees and form groups based on the flag image. This ensures even-sized groups and an easy-to-remember group list. In addition, it can build additional unity between team members as it gives their group a team name and image.
Using this list of 7 ways you can use bunting & hand flags for your occasion will help your event become a success. Using bunting & hand flags to decorate, direct, advertise, organize, and welcome your guests is an inexpensive way to elevate your event to the next level. Likewise, organizations with multiple events a year that are similar in nature can reuse their bunting for additional occasions.
