Using Smart Phones To Their Potential

Every year people invest in the latest and greatest smartphones.  Many of them have capabilities that few get to utilize regularly.  You can change that by incorporating your guests’ smartphones into the occasion (let’s be honest, they are going to use them anyway).  With a little imagination and tech help, you can intertwine smartphone usage into your event.  Some ideas that may work well are:

  • Geo-caching for hidden event treasures
  • Hosting a trivia game playable via smartphones
  • Conducting a poll during the event via smartphones and having the results posted to a larger screen
  • Using apps like Crowd Mics can allow the audience to engage by turning their phones into microphones (great for Q&As and meetings)

Interactivity

Are you looking to engage your audience instead of having them sit and watch?  If so, you can easily make use of technology to captivate your attendees.  At Hawaiian Style Event Rentals, we’ve seen clients use holograms, digital videos games, VR experiences, and other high-tech approaches to liven up the event.

Using these strategies gives the audience a fresh approach, even when the subject matter is similar to things done in the past.  Another advantage of using technology during your event is that it encourages innovation.  Approaching your event from a technological interactive perspective can set a precedent and get your attendees excited for the next event.  You may even locate technology sponsors for your event if you think of effective ways to use their products.

Hawaiian Style Event Rentals helps you get special events off the ground.  Check out a few more ideas in part-two of this blog.

Ever since the eruption of the Kilauea volcano, questions have arisen about the safety of traveling to Hawaii.  As an area business, located in Maui, we are about 118 miles from the site of the eruption.  Some of our friends that visit us form the Mainland have contacted us to ask about our well-being and the safety of traveling to the island chain this summer.  Hence, we thought it would be a great idea to post a blog about it—Q&A format.

Q: What areas were affected by the eruption?

A: The immediate areas surrounding the volcano is the main area affected by the eruption.  These residential areas around the volcano are nowhere near the places tourist of the Big Island tends to stay.  There are approximately 2000 residents that were evacuated from the area around the Volcano.

Q: What about the earthquakes?

A: So far, the earthquakes have been isolated to the epicenter of the Kilauea volcano.  The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center has yet to issue any threat of tsunamis due to the quakes resulting from the eruption.  (We are keeping our fingers crossed on this one.)  The good news is that typically earthquakes decrease in frequency and magnitude as the volcano releases pressure.

Q: Are the northern islands safe?

A: They are.  Our team is located on the island of Maui which is northeast of the eruption.  Here the air quality drops a bit when the northern gust occurs, but other than that the island is clear of danger.

At Hawaiian Style Event Rentals, we look forward to being able to assist our neighbors south of us on the Big Island and welcome visitors to the area this summer.  If you are planning to visit Hawaii, please stay abreast to official government reports to remain safe.

Hawaii is a tropical paradise.  People from the world over visiting Hawaii are astounded by its beauty.  Hence, it’s no surprise that many choose the islands as the perfect place to get married.

At Hawaiian Style Event Rentals, we’ve had the pleasure of assisting couples with constructing beautiful tropical weddings.  Are you considering Hawaii as a location for your wedding?  If so, you may want to see how to infuse tropical concepts into your theme.  Below are few ideas that we’ve seen and helped couples with.

Floral Accents

When tastefully designed, flowers bring natural delight to any wedding.  Flowers do not have to be confined to a bouquet or a table centerpiece.  With a little imagination, you can set up a number of captivating floral arrangements.  For instance, we seen some wedding use:

  • Floral arrangements around fountains
  • Overhead flowers within tents and arches
  • Flowered wall backdrops
  • Flower pedal walkways for the bride and groom
  • Pedal designs on the beach
  • Staircase floral arrangements
  • Flower fruit accents
  • Floral chandeliers

Of course, these are just a few ideas.  Keep in mind that flowers can be utilized virtually anywhere.  In Hawaiian culture, flower garlands, called “lei” and floral headpieces known as haku are commonly in weddings.

Hawaiian Music

The feel of Hawaiian music can give a different feel to an event—especially when it is hosted in Hawaii.  You may be amazed at the selection of traditional favorites, renditions of famous songs, and modern music available via musicians on the islands.  The ukulele, slack key guitar, and native performers are fun ways to add Hawaiian flavor to your wedding.

Décor

Last year, many wedding planners and event designers were choosing soft colors and pastels.  This year, there has been a dramatic shift.  Deep and full colors like burgundy, navy blue, chrome, gold, and silver have caught the eye of many.  Even if these are used as accents, they can change the appeal of your wedding décor.

The Aura

In 2018, bohemian styles have begun to take center stage.  This style plays well with the Hawaiian atmosphere.  You will be amazed at the range of rental items that we have available which can work for nearly any wedding.  We can help you to change the aura of your wedding into one that is unique and memorable.

The Details

The more you look into the details of your wedding, the more unforgettable it will be.  Therefore, “sweating the details” is a good trend 2018 in bringing.  Some of the details that some are using to make their weddings etched memories in the minds of your guest include:

  • Table decorations. Try a collage of images that you have of your fiancé, your families, and friends.
  • Chair décor. There are so many ways to change the aura and décor of your wedding by accenting your chairs.
  • Individualized invitations. It is easy to mail off a bunch of copies of invitations, but making individual ones that share personal thoughts really touches the heart of your guests.

Selecting the right date for your wedding can be time-consuming and nerve-racking.  There are several working parts to consider which could play a part in your selection process, such as:

  • Family and friends. If you are planning to share your special day with those you love, you will obviously need to pick a date that works well for your group.
  • Wedding theme. The weather in Hawaii is pretty moderate; however, summers do have occasional sweltering peaks during the day.  This is important to consider if you are going to have an outdoor wedding.
  • Budget. If you are trying to cut down the costs of your wedding, you’ll definitely want to plan your date carefully (we’ll discuss more about this below).

Over the years, our team at Hawaiian Style Event Rentals has acquired a knowledge of the islands and weddings.  If you want an incident-free and relaxing wedding, you may want to avoid the dates below.

Spring Break Madness

Unless you enjoy large crowds of young college-aged individuals everywhere, you may want to try a different time for your wedding.  Traffic can come to a screeching halt on the islands during Spring Break and finding accommodations (particularly quiet romantic ones) could be nearly impossible.  Newlyweds will likely find it difficult to explore and enjoy the island atmosphere during the crowded party atmosphere during these dates.

Holidays

If you want to significantly increase the costs of your wedding, choose a holiday wedding.  Rate increases will include hotels, catering, flights, entertainment, and local events.  Demand for all services during the holidays skyrockets throughout the islands.  To stay within a budget cross-off all major holidays including local Hawaiian cultural days which also attract a lot of tourists.

“All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy!”

Many of our corporate clients fully understand the above quote.  Which is why when they plan a corporate event in Hawaii, our team is thrilled to help.  Hawaiian Style Event Rentals has the capability to create unique atmospheres for virtually any corporate event you can think of.  In fact, we have built a reputation for some of the most amazing corporate setups in Kapalua Bay and Maui.

Below are a few reasons why a Hawaiian style corporate event is a perfect way to improve your team’s focus and morale.

Team Building in Maui

Improving the comradery among your employees can be difficult especially when they only socialize at work.  And lines are easily drawn between management and employees over time.  Team building exercises during company events can help to ease that tension and improve lines of communication.  The beautiful scenery and fresh beach air throughout Maui seem to break down the toughest barriers in the workplace.  It is hard not to make amazing memories in Hawaii!

Inspire Creativity

Does your business thrive on creativity?  If it does, infusing your team with fresh ideas is critical to your livelihood.  Even the most creative individuals need a change of atmosphere to consider new approaches.  Hosting your corporate event in Hawaii gives them that opportunity.  Your team can experience Hawaiian culture and interact with workmates outside of the typical office routine.  Such a getaway also allows for employees that may have never formally met to share ideas and perspectives which can foster richer ideas.

Recognize Employee Milestones & Efforts

Organizations continue to recognize the power that internal culture has on its employees and leadership.  Company events are useful tools to validate employees that exemplify company culture through their dedication, values, and hard work.  While having the event in Hawaii is a treat in itself, there is nothing like an employer recognizing the fine labors of an employee in front of their peers.
