Suspended Décor – Creative Illusion

Think your event design has to be down to earth?  Think again! The sky’s the limit when it comes to sensational suspended décor!

Create some excitement and a sense of intimacy when you transform a grand ballroom into a sensational soiree.   A vaulted space can seem overpowering, so bring it down to size with hanging embellishments.  Incorporate existing chandeliers as bases for drapery and dimension.  Gilt and silvery  branches, wound with fresh flowers and hung with crystal globes, bring the fun and flair down to your guests.  Up meets down with matching colors and textures on the tables – tall tapers secured in metallic stands, gold and bronze accents on the tables.  Your design will represent your personal style as well as a standard of luxury.

Wonderful Whimsy

Looking for a more whimsical feel?  Upside down paper parasols in a variety of shapes and hues, suspended from the ceiling, are perfect for a bridal or baby shower and can work with any color palate. Vary the heights for more impact.  Call attention to your dessert table with helium filled clusters of candy colored balloons interspersed with iridescent hanging balls.

The Seasonal Option

Go seasonal!  Enhance a winter wonderland with draped icicle garlands and individually hung snowflakes.  Welcome spring with a room full of hanging dragonflies and butterflies.  Add in some silk anemones and daisies to complete the look.  Pay homage to your guest of honor with swags of her favorite momentos and blingy gems in her favorite colors.

From endlessly glamorous and highly dramatic to rustic chic and quaintly personalized, look to the heavens for décor inspirations.
