Create A Magical Setting With Event Lighting Decor Hire

December 10, 2016

Most stylists agree - it's the clever use of lighting decor that creates the most magical setting for your outdoor, garden or fairy tale event. But what sort of lighting should you hire

Festoon lighting
String lighting puts you in the mood for a party the second you see it, strung up at your event!

It suits vintage theme events, garden parties, looks wonderful under marquees and has a certain country, outdoorsy rustic appeal too!

You can hire festoon lighting for your corporate function or old-school party.

Each string is surprisingly heavy so if you opt for DIY decorating, you will need some help to attach the strings with strong cable ties to solid celling beams. 

Fairy lights decoration
One of the prettiest looks you can do is to jazz up your nighttime event decor with fairy lights.

Fairy lights strung with warm white coloured LED lights create a magical fairy(lit) land. Wrap shorter lengths (1.5m-6m long) around indoor trees, arches, lolly buffets, all over the fireplace mantelpiece, or wound around your welcome table. 

Your centrepieces can include fairy lights made of ivy, olive branches, or even winter wonderland trees dusted with faux snow and seed lights.

Tie longer-length (10m-50m) fairy light strings around columns, suspend from the ceiling or tie around trees using an extension lead to an electrical socket.

Or why not make an incredible impact by installing a fairy light curtain behind your VIP guest table, lolly buffet, lounge bar area or next to the dance floor

Lanterns
When you plan to add event lighting sources and lanterns to your list of decor, what do you think of? Did you know you can order bespoke lighting that you can keep and enjoy forever in your home?

Everyone loves the stylish Hamptons look. Why not order a pair or more of white wooden lanterns to create the Hamptons style at your event?

Rustic iron and wooden lanterns can light the path to your cocktail area around the pool, to car park, bar, guest toilets, or outdoor dance floor.

Why not hire smaller rustic lanterns for your tables and hire the larger lanterns to complement the entrance to your venue, along your entrance on wine barrels or on a mantelpiece. Their weathered finish wooden frame has a nicely masculine air to it.

Have you considered hiring mercury glass lights in the shape of balloons for your lighting?

Or point your guests to the action with a Hollywood Marquee Arrow or add some glamour to your movie-themed event with a Hollywood Marquee Star Light. 

Flameless candle  lighting
Looking for something flameless, no risk and no mess that still provides the ambience you're after?

Why not purchase LED pillar candles in warm white, amber or in a a dramatic set of 6 tiered sizes. Perfect when 
your venue won't let you use real candles because of fire risk or mess from melted wax!

The white and amber LED pillar candles feature a visible "flame" that flickers incredibly realistically with a smooth, wax finish body and even a slightly melted look at the top. The trio of pillar candles look terrific bunched as group.

Please note, these candles look best when the faux flame is not directly visible!

The benefits of these unique lights is that compared with candles there is no risk, no mess and you purchase them to keep as a memory of your special occasion.
