Corporate Event Decor – Awards Ceremony Night

Make an impression… with corporate event decor

Throughout the year we offer many corporate event decor ideas to a host of different companies and organisations

We have been selected by John Lewis to help with their annual awards ceremony and Christmas nights for the past few years and we were so excited when this year they decided to do an Alice in Winter Wonderland theme.


The event was held in the Marriott which is a great venue to add some character in to. A normal function space it needs to have some magic added to it to fit in with the Mad Hatters Tea Party theme!  It is sometimes hard to make corporate event decor exciting – sometimes the formality of the event holds back organisers to really make it fun and different. But luckily for us the John Lewis team do not lack originality and their adventurous side certainly shows when they pick their corporate event decor themes!
Make Believe Floristry set to work making some weird and wonderful centrepieces fit for a Mad Hatters tea party – using playing cards, ‘Drink Me’ themed bottles, vintage tea cups and winter trees to create the theme across the 45 tables.  The brief was to make the corporate event decor seem less stuffy and more fun! 


We alternated tables of flower arrangements with twisted willow for height – the flowers had to be bright and colourful and the team asked for fairy lights to be added in to the pieces. We added in the playing cards to give the Alice in Wonderland theme.

The alternative centrepiece was a twist on our normal crystal trees – John Lewis loved these winter trees and we added in the playing card to our normal crystals and hanging tea light holders. To ties the two centrepieces in we placed a ‘Drink Me’ bottle and vintage tea cups with matching flowers from the other centre.

We love doing corporate event decor with a twist. Do you like the fun theme?

Venue Draping – Wedding venue transformed

Venue draping can change any space for your big day or corporate event.

venue draping

Mel and Karyn’s wedding was a real highlight for us back in May. We transformed a normal function suite into a breathtaking elegant space. The main transformation was from the venue draping – it made a blank canvas, with soft, floaty finish to be able to shine uplighting on to create a romantic ambience.


Why venue draping?


Although this wedding was in a lovely hotel function suite Karyn wanted the suite to be changed with venue draping. However, the biggest call for venue draping comes with town and village halls (and we have some brilliant photos of these set ups we will showcase soon!)


Draping allows ugly walls or hanging pictures to be hidden. It is great to hide sections of the room like bars or partitions to create a more romantic setting for a ceremony. The whole room doesn’t need to be draped to use draping effectively, though I think you will admit that with this wedding the whole venue being covered does create the wow factor!




However, it wasn’t just the draping we did for Mel and Karyn – we created the entire look! White sculptured chair covers and a white satin sash (with added sparkle!) kept to the soft feel, and our gorgeous diamante charger plates, white dance floor with named vinyl, crystal goblets, starlight backdrop and starlight tableskirt completed the look! Our uplighting was set to a striking hot pink which meant the whole glowed for the evening reception. The whole style looked elegant in its simplicity and finishing touches.
Karyn was a great bride to deal with – fantastic vision and we are so pleased she loved the end result!
