Event Decor and Special Event Lighting




Whether it's a wedding, Mitzvah or corporate event, event lighting is an important feature of event furnishings. Many times, special event lighting will make or break an event. What I thought I would do is give you some event planning ideas for event furnishings to include on your event planning checklist.

You can create any kind of atmosphere using lighting. Special event lighting can be a relatively inexpensive use of event furnishings and allow you to turn a tent into a Louisiana bayou or a warehouse in a circus. With special event lighting is all possible, including protruding images of scrims or walls.

One of the planning ideas that I give to my clients is to design their names with a gobo (metal disc used with a Leiko light to project a picture) on a dance floor, wall or ceiling. Using gobos, especially for weddings and mitzvahs, is a fun event interior thinking that draws attention to the couple or child honored at the event.

All you have to do is create a PDF file of the name you want to project. You can also buy or rent additional generic gobos as well. With a business client, I always have on my event planning checklist to rent special event lighting pre-made gobos such vacation blocks, clean, a Santa or holly leaf.

Another great cheap use of lighting is to illuminate trees. These trees can be in your garden; Planters already on the event page or green areas that you rent for the event and then mark them with color.

Depending on your theme and decor you can use yellow, green, blue or pink to name a few colors. Special event lighting with LED lights on the perimeter of your banquet room floor will add color throughout the event with the lights that transmit color from pinks and blues to ambers and greens.

My Pin Spotting Table is another of the planning ideas for events that I give my customers to add design lighting to the event. The best way to point place tables is to hang the taps over the tables; If this is not possible you can try to get your pegs at least 14 "high attached to a post.

The higher the light, the less a guest will complain about the light shining in the eyes as they stand at the table. Of course, you have to take into account the ceiling height you work with so be sure to include checking the ceiling height of your event planning checklist and forwarding that information to your event interior contact or event lighting company.

Finally, another event interior design idea with special event lighting is to use illuminated tables and bars. Most party rental companies have either these tables and bars in their inventory or can recommend a company that hires event lighting tables with plexi-glass and LED lights.

I hope you found these event planning ideas for special event lighting something you can add to the event planning checklist. Until next time, remember the Budget Bash mantra: make it easy, good, neat, fun and economical for everyone!
