Many event planners have dreams of transforming their holiday party venue into a winter wonderland complete with falling snow, toy trains, ice sculptures, fake reindeer, etc. Unfortunately, today's event budgets just don't allow for such extravagances.
Not to worry! You can still create a top-notch ambiance on a low budget with great lighting.
Getting the lighting of your venue just right is an essential tip in my series on the 12 Days of Saving Money. Lighting is one of the most cost-effective ways to transform your event venue. Use gobos to broadcast holiday scenes or your company logo on an otherwise blank wall. Add up lights in red, green or blue to draw attention to the columns or archways to do exist in a fairly plain room. And of course, twinkle lights create a fairytale setting sure to charm any guest.
With just a few bulbs, you can transform an ordinary venue to an extraordinary one—no giant candy canes or dancing penguins required.
