Fabric & Lighting Tips for your Event Space

Fabric can be swagged to affect any space!
  • It adds dimension and height;
  • It pulls your eye away from venue unpleasantries;
  • It creates an upscale look and feel.

Lighting makes or breaks a space!
  • Focus light on Lounges/Vignettes; Stage; Specific Tables;
  • Uplight walls or fabric curtains/panels;
  • Lighting takes a drab room to a FAB room!

For more information about fabric and lighting, contact a PFI team member today!

We're Back...

The PFI Team had an extremely busy fall/winter, forcing them to put their blogging temporarily on-hold. Well, we're back and ready to kick spring into high gear and keep our followers up to date on all that's going on with Planning Factory International and Planning Factory Bermuda!

Here's a brief update:

December 2010:
The PFI team produced an INCREDIBLE New Year's Eve event with the Chase Center on the Riverfront. EVE 2011, Wilmington's PREMIER New Year's Eve Party was the hottest ticket in town. Be sure to Save the Date for EVE 2012 - Saturday, December 31, 2011!

January 2011:
January was chock-full of repeat clients. From a Greek-themed retirement event to a private dinner at the DuPont Country Club, we were busy working with several PFI favorites!

February 2011:
We LOVE working with the students at a local private high school. Together we produced two fantastic winter ball events! Despite getting hit was stormy winter weather and a change of date, we were able to throw two spectacular evenings! Additionally, we welcomed a first-time Law School client into our February routine. Working to achieve their fundraising goals and objectives, we produced a stellar event!

March 2011:
Did you catch the PFI team at the Dover Downs Bridal Show on Sunday, March 20, 2011? We taught (3) Event Classes focusing on Logistics, Budget and Current Design & Color Trends. The day was extremely successful and allowed us to mingle with hundreds of brides - the phones haven't stopped ringing for wedding decor! Our seasonal-themed tablescapes were a huge hit! On the Bermuda front, we produced a spectacular grand opening event for an on-island client. This evening reception allowed the client to showcase their new office space, while featuring the progress and successes they've made over the last three years. Kudos to a wonderful client!

Stay tuned for updates on all that PFI has "on-deck!"
