clear divider boasts a serving slot for
ease of use when food and beverages
are present, the freestanding clear
dividers easily latch together to create
makeshift walls, and the sofa/table
clear divider slides beautifully into
loveseats, sofas and tables with three
adjustable heights for a perfect it.
Right now, due to COVID and the state
mandates for smaller, more intimate
gatherings, the team at DesignLight is
seeing more tented weddings at private
homes. " Couples can better regulate
who is coming to their home and they
can have more control over who their
vendor partners are, " Mulrey says. " As
for lighting and decor, we're seeing
chandeliers and bistro lights with
greenery and pretty draped entryways
in tents, and tree lighting to add interest
to the homes' surroundings. "
DesignLight is also seeing more
soft seating areas outdoors, which
means more lighting is needed. And
not surprisingly, bistro lighting and
tree lighting are leading the way with
the lighting design in the environment
surrounding the tent.
Machen has also seen an increase
in outdoor events, particularly on
family properties. The move outside
has increased the demand for tenting
and looring so in February of 2021,
SOHO Event Rentals invested in a new
hardwood looring that completely
transforms outdoor events.
" This looring has now traveled to
Florida and Louisiana. And in March
of 2021, we installed a porch feature
off of a 50-by-170 Losberger clearspan
engineered structure tent with acrylic
railings in Fairhope, Ala., " Machen says.
" We also installed an acrylic pool cover
that doubled as the dance loor for a
wedding in New Orleans, La. " All of these
elements are relective of consumers'
need to create unique gathering spaces
during the pandemic.
" Because COVID is causing so many
people to host events outside, I think
more and more people are really looking
for ways to make these outdoor tent
environments unique, " Walsh says.
UPCOMING TRENDS
While it's hard to predict the future of
trends in decor used within the tenting
environment, it does appear that soft
seating with durability for the outdoors
will be a must. As Otto explains, with
the push for more outdoor events,
especially heading into the warmer
seasons, the ability to replicate the
comfortable indoors while outside will
strike a memorable chord with guests.
" Similarly, outdoor rugs can be the
inal touch to complete a look, as well
as help to ill in vacant areas due to
more spacious seating, " Otto says.
The DesignLight team is also seeing an
increased interest in hanging chandeliers
in trees to bring the " inside, out. " And
both outside and inside the tent the
company is seeing couples add greenery
to their designs. " We custom build many
of our chandeliers and assist with adding
loral elements to them to tie in the
designs of the wedding bouquets and
guest table centerpieces, " Mulrey says.
" It's also very popular to add garlands
of greenery to bistro light strings. I hope
this never goes out of style. It's a great
way to personalize any celebration. "
