How to make your event memorable by engaging the five senses

No matter the size of your party, the tone needs to be just right. From the smell of flowers to the music as guests enter to the decor. The aim is to create unforgettable experiences at every turn. .

As an event producer known for curating unforgettable experiences, I always plan with your guest experience in mind. To curate a truly unforgettable event experience, you must be focused on ambiance and every little detail. Great ambiance should appeal to all five senses (Sight, Sound, Smell, Touch, Taste). when it comes to the five sense, no detail is too little.

This is one of my favorite things I love to curate. I love texture and the feel of a really good quality fabric for the napkins and table cloths. The stationery is another favorite. Guests will touch and feel the invitations, menus and even place cards.

Smell is one of the most ignored senses when curating the perfect event. What guests perceive is vital to the guest experience. You want enticing smells that keeps guests wanting more. While the food, cocktails, and flowers smell great, Don't forget about the bathroom. A room spray and scented candles will definitely elevate your guest experience.
