How to Style your Hired Function Room in Geelong

Chances are if you are about to celebrate a milestone birthday, your friends are too. That doesn’t mean all of your parties should blur into one memory by the end of the year. 

If you’re going to spend money hosting a milestone party, you should do it in a stylish, unique way that will make your party stand out from the rest. 

If you want to throw a stand-out and unique party start by choosing a function venue that is versatile, easy to travel to and accessible for your guests. A stand out party cannot be booked and planned last minute, so it is important to start early so that you can get your first preference and cover all bases. 

As one of Geelong’s most flexible venues, the Grovedale Hotel offers a range of different room styles and sizes that gives you the freedom to hire a function room that suits you best. 

Once you have the date and function venue picked out all that is left to do is focusing on styling your party finding your perfect outfit. Choosing a theme is the best way to make sure your party is stylish and unique. 

To start your brainstorming on how to throw a party with a lot of wow-factor consider these two fun themes that are easy and cheap to pull off. Remember, when it comes to styling a party consistency is key!

Theme: Jungle Party

Function Room: The Juke

With some $2 shop streams of leaves, white green and black themed decorations and The Juke bar as your function room, this theme is well on its way and can be executed with a very small party budget. 

The Juke’s industrial, rustic style makes it the perfect function room to hire for a stylish party. Complete with rose gold metal detailing, exposed brick walls, pot plants and strings of lights across the ceiling you will not have to try hard to impress your guests. 

Fake pot plants can be bought from stores like Kmart and Target and are a perfectly simple, effective and stylish table centrepiece. Instead of using brightly coloured balloons, try using black. Black balloons will add a sophisticated touch to your party and will also compliment the brass features of The Juke without detracting from the rustic interior.


Theme: Pastel Elegance

Function Room: The Terrace @ Pioneer Kitchen

The Terrace room of Pioneer Kitchen has floor to ceiling windows, light wood details, it’s own bar and completely removable furniture making it the ideal venue for a completely custom styled function. 

Pink, purple and blue are all great colour options for a pastel party. Using pastel coloured flowers, balloons, drinks and sweets you can turn The Terrace into the most elegant function room your friends and family have ever stepped foot in. 

In addition to flower pieces or balloons, decorate the room with a large doughnut board. Pink sugar-coated doughnuts match the theme, don’t need to be custom made and are a cheap way to decorate your function room while you keep your guests’ tummies happy.

At the Grovedale Hotel, we want to make your party visions come true. With five different function room hire options to choose from, we are a one-stop spot for your function room hire needs.
