Flirting with the Five Senses

When you are working out the feel or theme of your party, remember to consider all five senses. If you are able to design an environment that engages all the senses and you are able to anticipate the needs and desires of your guests, the event will be a truly memorable experience for everyone.

Whether you are trying to make an emotional connection with your guests, encouraging them to think about something a bit differently, attempting to evoke a sense of nostalgia, creating a sense of luxury and exclusivity, or simply designing a fun, open atmosphere; the more you flirt with all five senses the stronger the impact and connection developed with your guests will be.

First impressions are critical to pulling your guests into the atmosphere and mood of the event. No matter what theme or feel you are trying to achieve, the first impression must be exciting, engaging and intriguing.

Below are some overarching elements I start with when designing an event, each is directly related to the sensory design of the event.

• Sound: music, effects, volume, vibrations…you set the tone and the energy of the room with your sonic selections. Think about using a “signature” sound effect to draw attention to different happenings throughout the event.

• Touch: textures, comfort, climate…this is all about how your guests interact with the environment. This is a big thing to consider when you are designing the layout. The more comfy the space, the longer guests will linger in any given area.

• Taste: balance…I’m always trying to find the perfect balance between sour, salty, sweet, and bitter during menu designs and beverage selections. Don’t forget the folks that have special dietary needs!

• Smell: fragrance, emotion, ambiance…this sense is under-rated and powerful. Of all our senses, the sense of smell is most clos...
