7 Ideas for a Beautiful Ceiling
When it comes to decorating a wedding, mitzvah or event space, always examine the venue from every angle. Every nook, cranny, and surface is a design opportunity, and that includes the ceiling.
In fact, the ceiling is ideal! Guests won’t be expecting us, ensuring that “wow” factor!
A lot of event designers are making creative use of this often overlooked part of the room. The new trend is to suspend decor elements from the ceiling on clear filament for the illusion that your decor is actually floating on air. There are lots of clever ways to use this technique.

Paper Lanterns & Parasols
Paper lanterns are always a sure bet. They are the sophisticated equivalent of balloons for adults. They’re easy to find and fairly inexpensive.
They easily lend themselves to whatever look you are after. These pastel purple lanterns give a more subdued effect, available from Luna Bazaar.

Fun with Slinky
There’s really no limit to how creative you can be with hanging decor. Candles, small mirrors, and pomanders are also great choices. Here’s an interesting DIY idea. Take a styrofoam cube, glue mirrors to each side, and hang on clear fishing wire. The light that reflects off of the mirrors will give you a dynamite effect. Best of all, none of it will take up precious floor space.
