these decor items include rugs, pillows,

decorative), and faux greenery.

COUPLES ARE
HUNGRY FOR AN
IMMERSIVE DESIGN
AND PULLING IN EYECATCHING
COLORS
AND TEXTURES ARE
WAYS TO DO IT.
KERRI OTTO, CORT EVENTS
SOHO Event Rentals has seen an
increased interest in using unique fl ooring
styles and crisp color options that make
an environment " pop. " This beautiful
wedding decor boasts a classic blue and
white color palette throughout. Photo

itself, dividers are currently the hot-ticket
item. As Otto explains, while helping to
create distance at in-person events, they
can also be customized to easily blend into
the general event aesthetic. In addition
to dividers, faux greenery, though always
popular, is in high demand due to its dual
purpose of not only bringing in organic
elements but also serving as an additional,
creative way for sectioning off spaces.
And while weddings have been
the irst to resume in the live events
world, their decor demands have not
changed. " Micro-weddings still want
the 'Instagrammable photo moment'
captured with trendy soft seating
lounges and loral design, " Otto says.
CORT Events has been doing several
lounges with color too, moving away
from the classic white.
According to Otto, CORT Event's Lena
Chair, Montreal Loveseat and Chair,
Emerald Green Endless Seating and the
Valencia Collections have all been in
high demand.
" Couples are hungry for an immersive
design and pulling in eye-catching colors
and textures are ways to do it, " Otto
says. " Also, our faux greenery collections
are always very popular, including
boxwood walls that are truly lifelike.
These greenery staples provide couples
an organic safety barrier should they
need it. Overall, budgets for decor have
gone unchanged; it's just being allocated
differently due to guest luctuations. "
TRENDING ADDITIONS
Unique and properly placed lighting
also does wonders to transform a
tent's interior, as well as its exterior.
DesignLight offers all types of
lighting and fabric decor services.
The company, based in Dover, Mass.,
also has a wide range of chandelier
styles and string lights, as well as
state-of-the-art LED equipment for
celebrations and corporate programs.
The most popular item for the outdoors
is bistro lights. " These lights, otherwise
known as market lights or cafe lights,
bring a touch of playfulness and whimsy
to any gathering, " says Sandy Mulrey,
vice president of sales and marketing at
DesignLight. " We're based in New England
and have limited months for warm
weather outdoor gatherings. With COVID,
we're seeing outdoor gatherings later
into the fall, and the bistro lights give the
feeling of summer all year long. "
According to Machen, event looring
also is fast becoming the tent decor item
that is a " must have " for events of all sizes.
" Flooring can change the look of an
event. Until a consumer can experience
an event with looring, it is hard to
understand how much of a difference
looring makes, " Machen says. " I love
