Have you ever been to a party in the evening where you could hardly see from one side of the dance floor to the next?
Well, I have and it made wanting to walk around and mingle with other guests such a hassle that not many people did. Lighting for an event is crucial to set an ambience for your guests and to help create the tone in which you are going for. Here are a few things that you will need to consider when thinking about lighting for your next gathering.
Things to Consider for Lighting
You will first need to either visit or visualize what your space is going to look like. Is there a bunch of windows? Is this a narrow place or have the capacity for doors to be open and let in more light? You will also need to consider what kind of tone you want to set up for you guests. If you are wanting to guests to party all night and only have one light, well odds are they are not going to be moving around much because they can’t see. So consider doing a light spray (the top picture) over your dance floor. If you are wanting it to be more classy than you can always get chandeliers to hang with some softer lights around the perimeter of your space/tent. Remember that you want a balance between functional lighting and decorative lighting.
Your lighting plan will determine how your guests feel in your event/tent space. The brightness, appearances, and overall effects will help your guests enjoy themselves on the day. By renting your fixtures, you can pick and choose everything you need for a memorable celebration.

Can you believe that we are mid-way through July already?! I know that we still have hot days ahead and many more parties to come, but fall is coming, and we are here to kick start all you need to know.
Fall colors are in the air with rust, green hues, and burgundy. Good thing, that here at Park Avenue Parties we have all the linen colors you need to spice up your table settings. From our linen napkins to our options in tablecloths your guests will fall in love with your details.
Wine barrels are still huge this fall with them being placed at the front of the aisles, used as bars or desserts tops, and cocktail tables around the dance floor. We are also seeing lots of people using natural elements such as wood blocks and tons of votives with candles making us nostalgic for fairytales.
Finally, another consistent element this fall are the farm tables and chairs. This is a rustic look allowing all the colors to shine on the natural wood.
So, whatever if you have in mind for your fall weddings, gatherings, events, or even a family reunion come on down or call us at Park Avenue Parties.
