Room and Roof draping: All over venues is fully booked for wedding and year end functions. When you or your client needs to book you don’t always have a choice in the décor of the venue. Draping the venue adds glamour and elegance, but that’s not all. A good draping design will positively transform the atmosphere of your site and enhance your theme. It can help mask unsightly elements like poorly maintained ceilings and unfortunate ceiling fixture.
Marquee draping: A marquee can be the most magical setting for a wedding reception but their linings can often look a bit plain. Draping can be a great addition to any marquee. Learn about the art of marquee draping. You can create looks ranging from the classic elegance of ivory to coloured teeming to create a unique individual event.
Arch and Gazebo: Most brides prefer to get married in the summer - in a beautiful garden, on a wine farm or on the beach. There is nothing more beautiful at an outdoor wedding than a wedding arch that has been decorated to match the overall feel of the wedding.
There are many event organizers in South Africa, but not all of them have got the skills to do the décor. Learn to use your natural creative talents to create opportunities to earn a substantial income or use it to generate extra funds.
