Our popular Masquerade Theme has it all and makes for a memorable special event or corporate function. Here the guest is transported back to a time in history when the Masquerade Ball was a feature of the Carnival Season. These extravagant events were particularly popular in Venice and later throughout Europe with guests in fancy dress wearing elaborate masks to hide their identity. Masked characters and street performers also in fancy dress were engaged to mingle and entertain the crowd. This elegant theme combines lavish drapery and painted backdrops as well as statuary and architectural elements like archways, columns, balustrades and working fountains. The key props for this event are richly decorated giant masquerade masks, ornate head pieces, crystal chandeliers, candelabras adorned with jewels and champagne glass pyramids. Formidable entrance gates, elegant seating, lavish table scapes and creative lighting effects also add to the visual splendor or this theme. Elements from this engaging theme are used to create other event themes such as Phantom of the Opera, Venetian Carnivale and Rio Carnival as they also use masks, feathers and fabrics to create an opulent setting with just a hint of decadence.
