How to Transform Your Event with Pipe and Drape
Quickly turn a dull area into a beautiful wedding space by using pipe and drape. It's flexible, versatile, and easy to set up. Divide a large event space, or cover windows, doors, or unattractive areas. You can also use it to create a beautiful backdrop for wedding alters, or place it behind stages.
What is Pipe and Drape?
Pipe and drape is popular with clients because it's so easy to assemble and create something beautiful, yet it makes a huge impact. Then, when your event is over, it can quickly be taken down, giving you more time to party!
The following parts are what make up a basic wedding canopy structure:
Base plate – Four flat steel floor plates are used to build a strong foundation.
Telescoping upright – The headers and drapery are supported by the uprights that are inserted into the bases, which allow you to choose from a variety of heights to achieve the look and feel you want.
Header (crossbar) – The crossbars are horizontal poles that are attached to the uprights. The drapery is hung from these crossbars.
Drapes – Choose from a variety of colors, lengths, and fabrics.
Sandbags – These are placed on the bases to help keep the structure secure, especially in windy areas, or when the displays are over 7 feet tall.
Another benefit to pipe and drape is that you can design it to match the theme and colors of your event. Pick any material and layer it how you want. Then, add flowers, lighting, or crystals, etc. Tie back the drapes with bows, ribbon, floral arrangements, and more. The possibilities are endless when it comes to customizing a unique and gorgeous canopy at your wedding or event.
