The Design

Table Art Scotland AKA the Blue Parrot Events Group drew on their vast experience of the venue and selected props that suited the hotel as well as honouring the theme. So, calling on their Table Art stock, they pulled together the Swirl and Ice Melt design, both offering an ice sculpture like effect at the heart of the table. Backing those centrepieces with crisp white draping around the room brought an undeniable sense of opulence to the room. Only adding to said opulence are the charming blossom trees that when up lit in white. Therefore, they had a winter tone to them, enhancing the theme. Moreover, the Giant LED Letters sparkling out the word ‘Amaris’ was the final flourish for the main event space.

Making an Entrance…

Now to consider the entrance. Here is where Amaris really wanted to set the tone. Both in setting the theme from the off but also in presenting a great photo opportunity right from the start! Taking over the entrance with more white draping, Blue Parrot created a tunnel like effect. Vibrant blue uplighters added drama to the draping. LED Tree props sparkled and led the way. Finally, the whole look was set off with snow effects glittering the tunnel floor.

The Event

Dare we say it? Deep breath… there are some centrepieces that no photograph will do justice. For instance, the Pixel Tubes are such a presence in the flesh that in photographs, it simply does not reflect what you are seeing in person. On occasion, the same can be said of the Ice Melt Centrepiece. However, this event is the exception to that. With a professional photographer on the event, they captured these Ice Centrepieces masterfully. The Ice is crystal clear and captures the light just as designed. The beauty of these is as they slowly melt through the evening, the water droplets are illuminated as they fall. A magical effect I think you can agree.

Consequently, this event is the perfect example of a Winter Wonderland done right. Guests enjoyed a fun filled day and by night were enchanted by this elegant scene. Above all, the Winter backdrops proved to be a big hit, with guests drawn to them to take a memorable snap!
