Event Décor and Special Event Lighting
No matter if it is a wedding, Mitzvah or corporate event, event lighting is a crucial element
of event décor. Many times, special event lighting will make or break an event. What
I thought I would do is provide you with some event planning ideas for event décor to
include on your event planning checklist.
You can create any type of atmosphere using event lighting. Special event lighting can be a
relatively inexpensive use of event décor and will tera gold enable you to turn a tent into a Louisiana
bayou or a warehouse into a circus. With special event lighting anything is possible
including projecting images onto scrims or walls.
One of the event planning ideas I give to my clients is to project their names with a gobo
(metal disc that is used with a Leiko light to project an image) onto a dance floor, wall or
ceiling. Using gobos, especially for weddings and mitzvahs, is a fun event décor idea
that calls attention to the couple or child being honored at buy wow gold the event.
All you need to do is create a PDF file of the name you want to project such Frank & Apryl.
You can also purchase or rent additional generic gobos as well. With one corporate client, I
always have on my event planning checklist to rent special event lighting pre-made gobos such
holiday bells, reindeer, a Santa or holly leaves.
Another great inexpensive use of event lighting is to up-light trees. These trees can be in
your backyard; planters that already exist at the event site or greenery you rent for the
event and then highlight them with color. Depending upon your theme and event décor,
you can use amber, green, blue or pink to name a few colors.
Special event lighting using LED lights on the perimeter of your banquet room floor will add
color throughout the event with the lights transitioning color from pinks and blues to ambers
Pin spotting table centerpieces is another one of the event planning ideas I give my clients
to add special event lighting to the event. The best way to pin spot tables is to hang the
pin spots above the tables; however, wow gold if
this is not possible, then try to have your pin spots at least 14' high attached to a pole.
The higher the light, the less likely a guest will complain that light is shining in their
eyes when they are at the table. Of course, you will need to accommodate for the ceiling
height you are working with so be sure you include checking the ceiling height on your event
planning checklist and relay this information to your event décor contact or event
Finally, another event décor idea using special event lighting is to use lighted
tables and bars. Most party rental companies either have these tables and bars in their
inventory or can recommend a company that rents event lighting tables with plexi-glass and
I hope you found these event planning ideas on special event lighting something you can wow gold add to your event planning checklist. Until
next time, remember the Budget Bash mantra: make it simple, delicious, stylish, fun &
