As summer starts to roll in, it’s the perfect time for parties – and where better to host a party than in Los Angeles? Los Angeles is home to countless gatherings, and as far as parties go, there are any number of parties you can have. These can range from simple backyard get-togethers to large scale corporate events. Regardless how big the event is, the most important part of any event you host is making sure that you have everything you need to make it fabulous, from bars to flooring to tents to lighting.
That last one – lighting – is an often-overlooked aspect. Always try to remember what time your event starts and what time it ends – these can be far enough apart that the sun may set in the middle of your event.
Even if your event ends well before sunset, think about the setting – will your guests be under a tent? If so, it may be too dark without additional lighting.
And think about atmosphere – lighting affects mood, so make sure you plan accordingly. Even, soft, dim lighting can produce a quiet, romantic mood, while bright lighting can produce a functional, professional atmosphere. Dark lighting with bright spots can make a fun, nightclub-like vibe, and simple directional lighting in an open area can help highlight areas of interest for your guests.
