Simply Kayo is an exclusive boutique special events company that designs luxury events for discerning clients both in the UK and Internationally. Founded by Fikayo Giwa, Simply Kayo is an exciting and unique events company specializing in planning and designing high quality celebrations such as weddings and birthdays.  With her wealth of expertise Fikayo makes 13 trend predictions for 2013:
1.       Pop of colour in accessories – shoes, belts
2.      1920s, retro/vintage inspired weddings – think romantic, headpieces, beaded gowns, pearls, gold
3.      Prints and patterns – damask is already a hit, we’ll see more stripes and florals in décor, cakes, bridesmaids dresses, stationery
4.      High or top bun – works well with headpieces
5.      Straying away from white wedding dresses
6.      Following on from the peplum trend of 2012, we’ll see more peplum bridesmaids dresses
7.      Mint green – in the décor, bridesmaids dress, stationery, details
8.      Champagne – team with different colours to achieve the look/ambience you want – great for winter or summer nuptials
9.      Oxblood – lovely for autumn weddings
10.  Black details – from dresses to stationery to décor
11.  Eye popping cakes – bold colours and the prints/patterns trend
12.  Reception area – away from the dance floor and main activity of the wedding – allows you to interact with your guests in a different way with a photobooth, video messages, guestbook
13.  A return to elegance – moving away from the DIY and shabby chic themes characterized by the economy of previous years. Think old school glamour, lace, luxurious fabrics, formal receptions
Since the company began in 2010, Simply Kayo has seen Fikayo work with many clients in various aspects of their events’ needs; planning and coordination as well as styling and design.
