Gala Dinner‎ > ‎

Gala Dinner | Red, Black and Silver


This décor and colour scheme allows you to choose whether you wish to have all dining tables dressed identically, or in varying combinations of red, black and silver, giving you a repeat of 3 different tables in a most strikingly elegant and sophisticated setting.

Kindly also note that SA Event Décor would be happy to vary the décor described below, or to customise your gala dinner décor entirely, in consultation with you.

Pre Drinks Area 

The cocktail tables will be covered in stretch fabric, uplit from within by parcan lighting.  Half of the tables will be made up with red stretch fabric, and the other half in black.
In the middle of each table, the centre piece will be made up of a large, round mirror, with a crystal lantern in its centre, further enhancing the glow from the unlit tables.  Red rose petals will be scattered around the lantern. 

A portion of the pre-drinks area may optionally be set aside for photographs to be taken. A suitable backdrop will be provided.  A full bar can also be placed in the pre-drinks area, should you so choose.

Entrance Area

The entrance to the main will be created with a four-posted, draped gazebo-type structure. The gazebo draping will be done in white organza, uplit with red lighting, which, when combined with a red carpet, provides a elegant, soft red invitation to enter - your guests have a gala, red carpet entrance. 

The sides of the gazebo can also be detailed with the subtle sparkle of crystal curtains.

Main Function Area

All the walls will be draped in long black, fire retardant treated material.  In front of this draping, SA Event Décor will artfully arrange sections of deep red draping, pulled together
into softly gathered curtains, tied with decorative ropes and tassels.
Fairy lights and/or ceiling draping may optionally be included.  

Tables and Chairs
The main tables will be dressed in 3 different base  taffeta colours – wine red, black and silver. 
On top of this, we place a double set of runners – the bottom runner will be of wide, plain taffeta, on top of which is placed a narrower flocked taffeta runner.  This adds texture and allows the colour of the bottom runner to show through subtly.
Silver underplates highlight each place setting, with folded serviettes in silver serviette rings, or detailed with ribbon, placed upon each underplate.  Silver table number stands, with inserts to be printed by the client, will be placed on each table.  Silver goblets accompany the venue's wine glasses – if available from the venue, a red wine glass beautifully enhances the table setting.

All chairs will be dressed in black covers, and detailed with a taffeta sash and a rose threaded into the sash knot.
