This really was a weekend of new venues! We have worked at Addington Palace before but decorated the marquee for the first time on Saturday. This is a similar structure to the marquees at Tewin Bury Farm in Hertfordshire and Painshill Park in Surrey, offering a blank canvas at a reasonable rate for large events. The marquees are functional but can be dressed up very easily making a vast difference to the look and feel and putting your own statement on the space. Suitable decoration includes chair covers and bows, a pealight backdrop behind the top table possibly flanked by topiary trees and coloured gels for the venues own uplighters. Other items we have supplied at these venues include our fabulous crystal chandeliers, coloured valance and wall linings and of course our table candelabra which are ideal for tall ceilings.
Another style of venue which lends itself to tall table centres is a Baronial Hall, often found in Stately homes but also in many Schools and Colleges. Our 68cm silver candelabra made a stunning centrepiece at Forest School in North East London on Saturday, providing a high impact table centre for a much lower cost than anyone could achieve with flowers.
