3 Ways to Create an Autumn Wonderland

October 18th, 2018

Autumn is a special time of the year, especially if you’re in an area with fall foliage. The change in the color of the leaves usher in a new season. Changing of the tides can be felt from one season to the next. Orange, red, and warm yellow hues signify Autumn’s in full force.

Want to bring the Autumn feeling to your next event? We are proud to feature our client’s artistic visualization below. An empty hall space was converted into a fall forest wonderland with our Woodlands collection. See below for 3 ways to transform your venue into an Autumn Wonderland.

1. Choose your Autumn Color Palette

Woodlands 2 Bridge

Set the scene with warm tones – hints of yellow, orange, red and brown. Once your guest walks into your event, these colors will make your theme felt immediately. Utilize your color palette to coordinate your furniture, décor, florals, and menu.

2. Highlight Autumn Wonderland Décor

Woodlands 7 Road

Autumn inspired décor will make your event a true fall forest wonderland. From fall centric centerpieces complete with branches, pumpkins, and squash to Autumn backdrops to adorn the walls. Our client utilized our Woodlands collection to create a completely immersive experience for their guests. This look was achieved by wrapping the room in our backdrops. What a magical Autumn wonderland experience.

Woodlands 1 Path

This gorgeous event design created the perfect Autumn Wonderland for this occasion. Each backdrop in our Woodlands collection was painted side by side to capture a 360° panoramic ambiance. Although our Woodlands Backdrops are a part of a series, they can also be rented as independent backdrops or as a set of panels. This depends on the look you want to achieve at your event.

3. Enhance Lighting to Achieve a Variety of Looks in Different Spaces

Lighting can create versatility and change the mood as the event progresses. Lighting can also provide a variety of different looks throughout one event. Above on left, blue lighting enhanced the River scene in our Woodlands collection. While warmer yellow lighting was utilized to enhance the fall colors of our Woodlands Road scene on the right. Combining lighting with scenic décor will not only provide versatility, but enhance your guests experience at your next event as well.

Be my Valentine or my Galentine?

February 10th, 2016

Valentine Hearts Backdrop

Love is in the Air, Valentine

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner! We’re excited to celebrate with our loved ones. Valentine’s Day is also known as Saint Valentine’s Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine. Although the holiday didn’t start out about love, in 18th-century England it evolved into a day when people expressed their love to one another through presenting flowers, offering sweets, and sending each other hand written greeting cards (now known as ‘valentines’). We love trading and surprising others with Valentine’s! It’s definitely not only reserved for when we’re younger. We think the more clever, the better. So go grab your supplies and create your own unique valentine for those special someones in your life. It’s time to get creative and show your loved ones what they mean to you! & there’s no better way to do this than a homemade valentine.

Valentine Hearts 3 Love Story backdrop

No Valentine? What about a Galentine?

We affectionately love Galentine’s Day as we know our female best friends are the bees knees & perhaps our absolute favorite type of love story. This term was first coined by Parks & Recreation’s Leslie Knope, who officially made February 13th Galentine’s Day. A pre-Valentines day brunch consisting of ‘ladies celebrating ladies’. Having a gal pal to confide in, a best friend to shop with, and a partner in crime helps make our worlds go round. No matter where you live, it’s easy to find the perfect place for brunch with your girls or you can always have your girls over at your place. & remember: #NoBoysAllowed.

However you are celebrating, we hope you have a weekend full of laughter, spontaneity, love, and definitely brunch. Even though it’s only Wednesday, we’re already counting down to this weekend. There’s no shame in having something to look forward to, right?

Comment below and let us know how you plan to enjoy your weekend!
