Dressing up an Academic Setting: How to Add Visual Interest

Posted by LO on 10/24/2019 to Pipe and Drape
upright pole covers Say goodbye to boring school assemblies, dances, and pep rallies. If you’re an event planner, school official, or PTA parent, there are some easy ways that you can dress up any academic event and transform the area into a visually striking space.

Continue reading to learn more about how you can make every school event for the students an exciting and memorable one.

Academic events

The kinds of academic events that you can dress up include, but are certainly not limited to:

  • school plays
  • job fairs
  • science fairs
  • student award shows
  • talent shows
  • spirit assemblies
  • pep rallies
  • homecoming dances
  • prom
  • fundraisers
  • fall festivals
  • graduations

Now with that in mind, let’s explore how you can add visual interest and elegance to your displays or shows.

Create a display with color and texture by using sheer or satin drapes

Drapes add a touch of class and color. They are also relatively easy to set up, with the right team by your side. Adding drapes can dress up the environment and transport your intended audience to another venue entirely. They'll forget that they're dancing or celebrating in the same space basketball practice is held.

What you’ll need for your display

If you’d like to add some visual interest to some school sponsored events, here are a few things that will help you get started.

  • pipe and drape backdrop kits
  • your choice of drapery or a ceiling draping kit
  • a team of helping hands

The backdrops can help divide a room, close it in a little (create a new space within a room), or cover the walls with something much more aesthetically pleasing. Backdrop kits are quick to set up, easy to take down, portable, and reusable for many events to come.

Create added flair to your school function by incorporating ceiling drapes. Especially for proms and dances, the addition of ceiling drapes can really turn the room into something straight out of a fairy tale.

Having some helpers on hand to assist with set-up and coordinate the pipe and drape and ceiling swags is always a good idea -- two people are better than one, and three people are better than two. So be sure to plan ahead for how you’re going to get the room looking perfect. With the right team in place, you’ll set up a stunning event in no time!

Make every school sponsored event a memorable one

The proper scenery can turn any ordinary space into an incredible atmosphere. So go ahead, make the mundane into a beautiful sight to see!

You can enhance any school function with the help of the right drapery kit. Throw in some enhancing accessories to dress up the area, like upright pole covers, and you’ll find that it’s truly worth it if you want to transform the school gym or auditorium overnight.

You’ll come to find that drapes, located both high and low, can add a magical element to even the most ordinary spaces.
