Tips for Decorating & Lighting your Marquee

Choosing to host an outdoor event often involves considering a marquee. At Party Hire Group, we provide a variety of marquees that serve as a blank canvas for your creative event ideas. This post offers valuable tips on decorating and lighting your marquee, enhancing your outdoor celebration.

Creating Ambience with Lighting

Lighting is a pivotal element in setting the mood for any event, indoor or outdoor. For your marquee, consider options like fairy lights, festoon lights, light-up lanterns, and balloon lights. At Party Hire Group, we offer a diverse range of lighting options, including Par Can lights and flood lights, to add a glow to your setup.

For example, our relaxing festoon lights can create a warm, inviting atmosphere, ideal for evening events or weddings. You can arrange these lights in various patterns, like zig-zag or sun ray, and use Par can lights to highlight specific areas, complementing your event’s theme.

Playing with Colors

Enhance your event's theme with colored lighting. LED lights, such as our Par cans, offer a wide spectrum of colors. Choose soft hues for a romantic atmosphere or vibrant tones for an energetic celebration.

Incorporating Natural Elements

Integrate elements like flowers, wooden accents, and greenery to bring a touch of nature into your marquee. Use potted plants or floral arrangements as centerpieces to complement your event's theme.

Consider Practicality

While aesthetics are crucial, it's also important to ensure practicality in your lighting and decorating choices. Create a memorable entrance and focal points within the marquee. Ensure adequate lighting in dining areas, walkways, and service areas for a smooth event experience.

Transforming Your Marquee

With thoughtful lighting and decor, transform your marquee into an enchanting and stylish space. Whether planning a wedding, corporate event, or festive celebration, the right decor can elevate the entire experience.
