Event Styling Guide: Crystalbrook Vincent

At the top of Crystalbrook Vincent luxury hotel is the stunning Fiume Rooftop bar and Gallery function space - two of Brisbane's most sought after event spaces for corporate functions and luxe events.


With stunning views to the Brisbane river and conveniently located in the Howard Smith Wharves Precinct it's easy to see why it's so popular.


Got an event coming up? Here's our top 4 tips for styling your next Crystalbrook Vincent Brisbane soiree.

1. Make the most of the view

Sweeping sky vistas, river views, city views, bridge views - seriously, all the views. You won't want to miss them. With such stunning scenery, it's important not to detract from it by adding too much external decor or tall event props that will block the background. With a venue like Crystalbrook Vincent that already comes with ample photo ops, less is more.


HOT TIP: We recommend adding in a small amount of branded event signage to emphasise the event theme or your company name/acronym.

2. Decorate cohesively with the space

The first thing you'll notice when you enter Crystalbrook - and one of the unique elements the hotel is famous for - is the attention to detail in terms of art and decor. A classy, polished event space dictates the use of similarly classy event props. Cheap, tacky decorations simply will not do in such a chic venue so it's worth investing in quality event hire options that will work cohesively with the space.


HOT TIP: Artificial florals, rich velvety colours, crisp white tones, and greenery all pair perfectly with the Fiume Rooftop space.

Rich, deep colours also work so well with the venue greenery and really pop for photos. Our light up letters with remote control coloured bulbs add a pop of colour and are a great way to integrate your organisation colours.

3. Plan for the weather

As with any rooftop or open-air venue, the weather is always an important consideration when event planning. Especially as in Queensland the weather can be so unpredictable and extreme.


HOT TIP: Light up letters are a great all-weather option, or make use of the undercover Gallery function area as a 'Plan B' option if it rains.

Avoid the weather altogether in the Gallery function spaces. The balcony area allows for great river view photos, all while keeping dry.

4. Choose event vendors you can trust

It goes without saying, but you will dramatically decrease your stress levels and increase the impact of your event if you choose a quality team of vendors to bring your event vision to life.


HOT TIP: Look for things like Google reviews, years of experience, recent posts online, and response time to ensure you pick the A-team for your event
