1HERSA1 0020 www.eventify.com.au (02) 9699 6191 entertainment experience unsurpassed service events with a difference themeing event management floral design technical production catering 20 SUNDAY, OCTOBER 16, 2011 THE SUN-HERALD party planning Alex Zabotto-Bentley, the director of AZB:creative, one of Australia’s best-known styling and events agencies, has worked on amazing projects ranging from Palazzo Versace New Year’s Eve events, the Chambord Shine Awards and the Lady Gaga Monster Hall party in Sydney this year. He tells Shelly Horton that hosting at home is a great way to explore your inner stylist. Remember, creating a visual environment at home for a small gathering does not mean going nuts overdoing it. Keep it simple and chic. Here are his tips on styling. STYLING Photos: Courtesy Grand Pacific Group Photos/ Esteban La Tessa and madison magazine. 1. Nostalgia ‘‘Nostalgia and simplicity are in vogue for large events as well as at home, so use that as your key to creative home event styling,’’ Zabotto-Bentley says. ‘‘Nostalgia is evocative and personal and opens up a discussion about the provenance of the item. Use family heirlooms, old trays, glassware, textiles etc.’’ 2. The golden rule of three ‘‘Remember the interior classic rule of three: arrangements with furniture or groupings of accessories and vignettes; balance within symmetry using a focal point; use of threes and odd numbers.’’ SPECIAL REPORT
