We love being a part of special events all over the globe, but especially love helping create a unique and memorable atmosphere for the many graduation ceremonies occurring each week around this country. A very popular choice for our clients is to rent or buy Pipe and Base drape and hardware from us to match the color scheme of the school that’s having the ceremony. With an extensive amount of colors, sizes and styles to choose from, we love being able to help take the guesswork out of this event for the producers involved, and offer some easy-to-install, out of the bag, ready to go drape and hardware that can be set up practically anywhere imaginable.


However, we get really excited when our clients have the space, time, and ability to think “outside the box” on this type of stage design, and go with something a little more decadent. Recently we had the pleasure of working with production designer Brad McWhorter and the creative team at Atlanta Audio Visual, who were responsible for the beautiful stage design at this year’s graduation ceremony at Tuskegee University. Looking to match the colors of the school, he went with some of our rich, velvety Red Super-Vel draperies from our Rockin’ Red Drapery Collection.  At this location, he had the space and functionality to use some of our taller rental 23’h x 10’w Red Super-Vel pleated drapery legs, but he also wanted something unique to help create a “WOW” factor. He decided to frame the stage with our beautiful and versatile rental 60’w Red Super-Vel Swagged Border, adding some extra drama to this exciting event. Some black masking drapery as the backdrop really helped the school color pop, drawing the eyes to the stage but not detracting attention from the students, speakers and special guests.


We were thrilled to help Brad and his creative team make this event a huge success, and love to help our clients think outside the box on their stage designs whenever possible. Whether it be traditional pipe and drape, masking drapes, or some of our unique specialty draperies, let us help you to create the stage design you are envisioning for your next special event!
