Nothing says celebration like bold and beautiful party décor overhead. Treating the ceiling as the ‘fifth side’ of the room can result in something truly spectacular. Depending on the event, the venue and the budget, a ceiling treatment may even be the better option over perimeter décor around the room.
Ceiling hang points, and if needed, electrical power dictate if installing a ceiling treatment is even an option and to what extent. Some venues do not lend themselves at all to this type of décor, while other venues offer a great opportunity to really get something exciting going on up above the floor.
Runs of fabric swaged, pin wheeled or dropped as valances are often the first choice for ceiling treatments. Custom fabric ceiling treatments can suggest clouds, leaves on a tree, the canopy of a jungle, waves of water or just a beautiful environment of softness.
Hard goods like printed graphics, beaded curtains or market umbrellas can offer a ceiling treatment with an entirely different look.
Paper Lanterns, Market Lights, Chandeliers, Thematic Lanterns, Glow Orbs, Branches with a lighting element can all offer a ceiling treatment that looks both showy and bright while offering some ambient lighting.
Using these elements ala carte can be quite effective, or mixing a few different elements together to create a ceiling treatment that’s sure to have an immediate and lasting impression. So, if the budget allows, take that event décor even higher!
