Are you planning a wedding or special event in Iowa? Is the venue or event space large and you want to create a warm spectacular feeling to the room? Why not consider adding some elegance and sparkle to the ceiling of the room with fabric ceiling draping?

‘5’ things you should consider regarding ceiling draping for your event.

  1. Are there connection points in the ceiling where the draping can be attached? Many ceilings in venues have suspended ceiling tiles which work wonderful for ceiling fabric draping. It might be the ceiling has grids that can be attached to. Or in some cases, the venue has installed hooks into studs in the ceiling for attachment.
  2. How tall are the ceilings? Can the connection point be reached with a 12′ to 15′ ladder. If not, a mechanical lift will be required to install the draping. Does the facility have a lift that can be used by event vendors, or is this something that will have to be rented for the installation which will add to your ceiling draping budget. If a mechanical lift is required, is there access into the venue that will allow the lift to be brought in through? Will the venue allow a lift to be utilized on their flooring?
  3. What style of ceiling draping do you desire?
    1. Flat Swag
    2. Star Shape
    3. Starburst
    4. Linear
  4. What are the dimensions of the room that the ceiling draping will cover?
  5. Does the room have a sliding divider wall in the center where the draping will be attached that will require a special connection adapter?

Once you have the answers to the questions above, another good thing to do prior to requesting a ceiling draping quote is to check out the various ceiling drapings at the different venues in Iowa we have done in the past. If your event venue is not listed, then emailing photos of the event space with your ceiling draping request is a big help in assisting in getting you your ceiling draping rental quote.

So call today, we would love to help you turn your venue into an Unforgettable Event!

Plant Stand

Plant stands are making rounds at parties and for all the right reasons. Who could have thought one could add so many fun elements to party decors with something as simple as plant stands? These can turn into unique and elegant stands for placing your cupcake platters or using the different levels for serving multiple food items at your party.

They're and they're so budget-friendly they'd fit right into your party plans without making you feel the pinch. Besides, who can ever fail to admire the lovely floral decors at parties? If you blend these artistically with your serving plan, you'll earn the best party-arranger's title, we bet. Even our vintage plant stands will work well for your decor.

You can use these to arrange your Marimekko plates artistically, arrange a vintage object and illuminate it as a lamp on the plant stand or even use it as side tables at the event.
