What is venue decoration?
Venue decoration is anything you want it to be! We offer a wide range of services to decorate your venue in different ways including:
- Draping – swathes of fabric that are hung from the ceiling and/or walls in any colour scheme creating a soft look. We also offer a new style of ‘ribbon draping’ ask us for more details!
- Lighting – up lights in various colours to wash the walls with coloured light, Gobo projectors which project patterns or images of your choice onto wall, ceiling and floors, cangles and tea lights, lanterns on crooks and tables, fair lights, globe hanging lanterns and much more.
- Props and decor – We have a beautiful range of various hand made party and wedding decorations that make wonderful statement pieces including parasols, giant heart light, hanging decor, lampshade chandeliers and more.
- Furniture hire – our range of unique party furniture really transforms a space, with our sofas, stools, coffee tables, side tables and ornaments and accessories cosy chill out areas can be created which are perfect when your guests need a break from the dance floor.
- Rugs, carpets, flooring and dance floors – we can fully carpet your party venue to really change the look or simply install a few scatter rugs. We also have a range of flooring options and many wonderful dance floors including wooden, mirrored and LED!
- Party accessories – Finishing touches make all the difference and our huge range of ornaments and accessories really add the special details that make your party unique.
Can you decorate traditional marquees and solid buildings with your linings?
Absolutely; we have a special range of marquee linings that we use to decorate any party venue, we can transform barns in to Arabian palaces, school halls into Bollywood wonderlands and bring some Cornish Cream elegance to standard wedding marquees..
This is combined with our party furniture and furnishing services to bring lounge furniture, wedding furniture and event furniture as well as heating and lighting to your venue, it means that we can help you at any time of the year and in virtually any location. We will need your venue or marquee dimensions and may need to conduct a free site visit before we can confirm if decorating your venue is possible.
What dimensions does the marquee or party venue need to be for you to work with?
In order to install our special marquee linings we work in widths of 6m, 9m, 12m and 15m and lengths from 9m to 30m.
We usually need a ceiling height of a least 12 feet in order to create an attractive tented appearance.
If you are interested in draping your venue rather than using our marquee linings we can work with you no matter what size or shape your venue is, as all our venue drapes are bespoke and made to measure.
Can you drape any venue?
Yes. All our venue drapes are bespoke and made in any colour to suit and fit your party venue. We will need your venue dimensions and photos of your venue, and may need to conduct a free site visit in order to give you an accurate quote of the cost of venue decoration and draping.
How do you attach the linings to the marquee or venue?
Inside a clear span marquee we can fix the marquee linings to the existing structure as normal linings would be. In venues such as barns, rafters and beams can be used, or if necessary a basic scaffolding frame might be required to be erected.
How long does it take to set up the interiors?
Similar to erecting a tent…most events can be lined and furnished within a day.
What sort of access do you need for delivering the marquee linings and event furniture?
All our party decoration equipment can be carried through a typical garden gate (30 inches width). Access is required within a reasonable distance of the event for Luton-type vans…it is helpful if you can explain the type of access when you contact us.
Do you need to see the site before the event?
Not always. Often photographs and a description of the site access is sufficient to be able to decide whether or not a site visit is necessary…all our site visits are free so if we need to conduct one it is at no cost to you, and gives us a chance to have a face to face meeting and discuss your party ideas in more detail.
However, if you would like to meet with us to discuss any of your ideas, a trip to our stunning new show room warehouse in Sussex can often be productive, we have each of our party and wedding marquee lining interiors set up for you to walk through and sit in, and a whole section devoted to our bespoke draping to show you one of the many party themes that can be achieved with venue draping. All our party furniture and ornaments are also here for you to view at your leisure.
Do you need a power supply?
Most event lighting can run from a 13-amp domestic supply or a generator. Our cabling is weatherproof and purpose build or adapted for use in all party venues.
What will it cost to deliver the interiors and furniture?
The delivery cost is based on the distance between our Sussex base to your venue and includes installation and dismantling the event also. For a precise quote we will need the delivery postcode, however for example:
For a furniture delivery for 40 people in Southampton the cost would be around £140+ VAT for delivery, installation and collection.
A school hall measuring 15m x 30m with dining seating, dance floor and lounge area for 150 people in Oxford would cost approx £380 + VAT, and
A 12m x 24m marquee transformation with ottoman dining seating for 100 guests in Cambridge would cost £240 + VAT
Draping a venue is harder to quote as it very much depends on the height, width and shape of your venue, please contact us with your venue dimensions and some photographs or a link to the venue website in order for us to give you an accurate quote.
Do you ‘dry hire’ your equipment?
Dry hiring is when you collect our furniture from our warehouse in Sussex and deliver it back again yourself after your event. This is possible to arrange for furniture hire and party accessory and prop hire (lanterns, palm trees, screens etc) although we are only able to use this arrangement with our marquee linings to marquee professionals as they can only be installed by professionals.
