Top Marquee Décor Ideas

No matter what you hire a marquee for, you need to think about how best to decorate it. These spaces are impressive all on their own but you do need to do a little bit of decorating here and there to really wow your guests, no matter what the occasion.



What does look really lovely in a marquee space is lots of colourful paper lanterns. When strung up across the top of the marquee, these create a beautiful effect, especially when interspersed with other decorations such as paper pompoms, which have become increasingly popular options for decorations in the last couple of years.

Keeping the décor natural is quite a good idea, since your marquee will be outside so you’ll have a sense of bringing the outside in, no matter what decorations you go for. Simple wooden chairs and chairs look lovely in a marquee, especially if you cover your tables with burlap sacking or hessian material.

We have a variety of different chairs available, from spindle back chairs to chaivai chairs. There are also wooden folding chairs at your disposal, so have a look to see what we’ve got in stock and what works perfectly with your choice of wedding theme. We also offer a spray booth to ensure all the chairs are kept in tip-top condition.

Bunting and fairy lights are also great ways of decorating a marquee with ease. Simply hang your lights from the ceiling and put strips of bunting around and about for a wonderful look people will love.

If you are planning to hire a marquee, why not contact Richardson Marquees?  We have a range of marquees available to hire, from small garden events to large spaces which can accomodate an appropriately large marquee.

We can provide the complete marquee solution to ensure that your event venue is set up in plenty of time for your guests to arrive.
