A Look Back: July 2018

Our favorite decor from July 2018

Every month we highlight a few of our favorite and most noteworthy events from the past month.

Bensenville Fourth of July Parade

Since our new workshop is based in Bensenville, and only a block away from their Fourth of July parade, it was only fitting we joined in on the festivities.

Navy Pier Cloud

The Aon Grand Ballroom at Navy Pier is a gorgeous space with a giant 80 ft dome ceiling. So large, in fact, that we created three humongous balloon clouds to help fill the space and create a fun decor piece for the client. The main balloon cloud was installed on round trussing and was about 24ft wide! The two other clouds were a bit smaller, coming in at around 9ft. We even pulled in a few extra hands to help us inflate all the necessary balloons.

Crate and Barrel Summer Party

Company summer picnics are in full swing and this one takes the cake! Crate and Barrel had their summer celebration at their corporate headquarters. A giant tent was set up in one of their parking lots and our job was to fill the ceiling with an organic installation in shades of red balloons. Because go the height of the tent, the sheer size of the install is easily underestimated. Take a peek at the last photo of us taking it down after the event to get an idea of the full size!
