Create a fun, frilly and unexpected backdrop as a stage for your event! Lavishly draped fabric mingled with huge paper flowers and antique chairs create a show stopping look for a wedding, shower or garden event. This creative backdrop also works perfectly for pictures.

Hang floor length natural muslins from the corners of a pergola for an instant oasis – perfect for an exclusive tete-a-tete or quiet get away on your patio. Tie back the drapes with contrasting burlap bows for a shabby chic touch, or use flowers and strings of crystals for bling. Don’t forget to nestle tall, flower-filled vases in the corners to add a scent of floral romance.

As your guests move inside for dinner, frame the entryway to set the mood for your extravaganza.   Greet your friends and family with layers of tapestries hung over and alongside the doorway for an elegantly inviting entryway.

Consider weighty tailored drapes for a formal feel, or ethereal gauze panels for a more lighthearted feel.  Stagger the lengths or layer your panels for a deeper, more dramatic look. Tuck nosegays into tie-backs for a more sensual welcome.

Outdoor dinner plans?  Create an instant ceiling outdoors with billowy drapes suspended from overhead beams.  Strips of thin organza in soft colors create a beautiful outdoor dining area.  Or put the spotlight on your fun-loving side with animal prints! Drifting softly down towards your guests, they’re sure to catch everyone’s eye!

Go beyond the expected and think outside the window coverings. Creative drapery instantly transforms any space from dull to dramatic.  Whatever your taste or style, play up the spectacle and pageantry with drapery effects designed especially for your phenomenal affair.
