“Work with what you have got.” It’s an age old adage that we have heard time and time again. In most cases, we think of it in a time of desperation or need; however, it is not merely an encouragement during tough times. Working with what you have is all about using what you have to its utmost advantage. And who wouldn’t want to make the most of things?

When hosting an event, making the most of your space is of the utmost importance. We all know the saying, “Location, location, location.” This has never been truer! When hosting an event, the location you choose is key! However, which came first? The chicken or the egg? The event or the space?  If you are throwing a luau, it makes sense to have it at an outdoor pool or beachside. If your space is a basement jazz lounge, it makes sense to throw a roaring 20’s party. 

So if you are hosting an event at the Natural History Museum, what better theme to use than the jungle! And they did just that! Hosts DC expertly used the museum’s attributes to bring their event to life for their clients. Every detail was spot on!

They projected large green banana leaves on the walls of the lobby, which was serving as their cocktail space, to make guests feel as if they had stepped right into the heart of the jungle. The color scheme for the cocktail table linens were perfect hues of green and surrounded by sprays of monkey grass. Having this all under the towering elephant statue was a perfect touch.

One of the best parts of the evening was not even the decor but the entertainment. Guests were entertained by a choreographed tribal dance on stage. Dancers wore tribal tattoos and sarongs while performing for guests. All in all, this jungle themed event was a wild time for all!
