Stage and Backdrop: This consisted of an extra  large wall of brightly coloured balloons in keeping with the “Circus” theme. The large variety of  individual décor elements really helped create the atmosphere of being in the “Big Top” tent of a circus. These include the dwarf  balloon columns topped with “smiley faced ” balloons, upside down balloon columns with small balloon monkey sculptures as well as the use of mainly red and yellow balloons with white accents.

Ceiling Treatment:

Continuing the illusion of being in the “Big Top” of a Circus, the room ceiling was covered with large tapering balloon swags which met in the centre of the room, with a large glowing balloon clown head at its apex. Balloon columns were hung from the ceiling and feature small sculptures of monkeys clambering all over.
