On Trend: Creating a Grand Event Entrance

On Trend, Southern Events Products

The entrance to an event is a guest’s first impression of what’s to come! It will set the tone for the remainder of the event, and so it’s important to start things off on the right foot. Today, we’re sharing some of our in-stock rentals that can be used to create a grand event entrance.

Carpeted Entrance

Want to wow your guests? A carpeted entrance to your event is a sure way to do that. A red carpet is an easy way to lend a hint of old Hollywood glamour – regardless of the formality of the event! It will lend to the overall look and experience, making guests feel as though they are special and creating excitement for what lies in store. Of course, your carpet doesn’t have to be red! Feel free to feature your event or company colors like the grand event entrance done in blue and white below.

Stanchion & Rope

Along with a grand carpet entrance, you’ll want to rent stanchion and rope. Our Chrome Stanchions are a timeless addition that will help you maintain an orderly entrance. It is especially great for events that will require attendees to queue up or that are ticketed.  You will also be able to choose between our Black Velour Rope and Red Velour Rope, depending on the theme or color palette featured at your event.

Vinyl Appliques

When you have a thoughtful theme or event design, vinyl appliques on your event flooring can be a unique way to welcome guests.  Custom appliques can be added to our Black, White or Natural dance floors – doubling as entrance flooring- as part of your grand event entrance. Here we replicated the florals from the event invitation and linen pattern onto floor appliques. Also, consider showing off your new monogram to welcome wedding guests or brand at a product launch.

Boxwood Walls

A popular way to decorate an entryway is with our lush Boxwood Walls. These customizable pieces can be decorated with details of sponsors, used as a photo op with a step and repeat, or simply act as decor. Alternatively, add an interactive twist by greeting guests with a cold refreshment! Our champagne/beverage shelves are an elegant and memorable way to welcome guests at the entrance of your event, whether it be a cocktail hour or seated dinner. They are available in two trendy colors, modern Fruitwood and classic white.
