PPA Connect Awards: Winter Theme

Naturally we were delighted when we were asked to transform the venue for the PPA Connect Awards, celebrating achievements in the events industry. Our clients wanted a theme that would be fun and visually striking. Since the event was close to Christmas the final decision was a Winter Wonderland and Alpine snug theme, and we were happy to oblige!

The first step was to set the scene at the entrance. White drapes created an appropriate backdrop, with pale blue uplighters providing an icy ambience throughout the space. A winter wonderland set piece provided the main focal point, with lots of fake snow and twinkling pealights.

We used six white birch to create another spectacular walkway, directing guests through the space and to keep the theme going. Fake snow round the base and pink uplighters throughout was just what was needed give the area a little magical lift…

We also created an alpine snug, complete with a scenic Alpine backdrop and a roaring (fake) fire. Warm amber uplighters enhanced the cosy ambience throughout the room, and we continued the theme with birch trees with pealightsrustic barrel poseur tables and rustic style lanterns to add in some old-world charm. The finishing touches were fake fur throws, vintage style lanterns and an abundance of twinkling tealights – nothing if not cosy!
