Bridal Show Rundown: Ceiling Decor

At The Canterbury Place, one of our favorite things is to decorate the ceiling! And why not? The ambiance is amazing when you extend your decorations from floor to ceiling! Our original ceiling swags created the perfect tenting effect, so we decided to double the effect with lights in every swag. The effect was perfect, and there was still room in the center for hanging Tissue Poms. These are adorable because they give the feeling of hanging flowers, but bigger and less expensive! This was our first time featuring the Tissue Poms at a show, and we are sure that many brides will love this look (it's much softer and more feminine than Chinese Lanterns, so it's the perfect look for a Vintage look)! The Poms come in many colors, and each one has a slightly different petal, giving it a unique texture.

The Fully Lit Ceiling Swags we featured are available for $550.00 in Ivory or $700.00 in a custom color. Of course, our original Ceiling Swags are still available at $350.00. The Dining Hall ceilings are very tall, so these give the room a more intimate feel. And with all of the lights, it really is magical!

Upgrading the ceiling decor every year is something that we really enjoy! In the Ballroom, Elysha came up with the idea to hang Chinese Lanterns along Italian Lights. This is a very versatile look because you can just do the Chinese Lanterns, or have it with 1/2 swags (as shown) or with full swags! It is a great look above the dance floor, because it gives the feeling of outdoor dancing. Of course, we could also do this same look outside when it is warm enough to do dancing in the courtyard!

Thank you again to Lindsay Jane Photography for the beautiful pictures!
