I have been really inspired lately by all the rainbow ideas over at Hip Hip Hooray, so once the rainbow confetti was in the invitations, I decided to go with that for the decor as well. We decided on a swooping instillation of crepe paper and dot strings above the food table. It was about 14 feet long and 4 feet wide. The process took about 4 hours for two of us. It was a fun, late-night, wine-drinking instillation:
I think the finished product looks amazing, don't you?
I think the key to the depth of this instillation was that for each color section (red, orange, yellow, etc.) we used an assortment of different shades in order to help us achieve the look we wanted. So instead of just one color of red streamer, we used three shades, which included some pinks, and we even pulled in black to the confetti string as well. For colors where there was only one shade (orange, for example- believe it or not, they only have on shade of orange crepe paper streamer), we blended in the occasional red and yellow streamer to give it depth.
The best thing about this instillation is that it looks amazing in pictures. With flash, without flash, it created a phenomenal backdrop. I think it would be beautiful at a casual and brightly colored wedding, don't you?
More party details to come tomorrow!
P.S. The whole ceiling installation cost less than $40! I bought the crepe paper streamers online at Zurcher's Discount Party Supplies. They have a wonderful array of brightly colored streamers.
