Pre Drinks Area 

Pre-drinks Area
Here, your guests will meet to say 'howdy' and enjoy a refreshing drink.

For this area, we propose something more unusual and funky 
These décor elements can also be used inside the venue. 

Placed around this area, a combination of cocktail tables dressed in red or brown stretch table cloths, and wine barrels with hessian overlays, prepare the settin for the evening. Lanterns form the centre pieces on the tables/barrels.

Placed in a focal area, guests will observe our wooden gallows. These gallows can either stand alone or have a hanging mannequin.

Mirror boxes
These unique large hessian covered booths have a mirror inside them, on which is a screen printed sign saying “Wanted”.  Thus, when you look inside the booth you see your own face as “Wanted”.

Photo Area

For the photo area SA Event Décor has two options: 

The first option consists of a cowboy and cowgirl cut-out. The cut-outs are 'headless', consisting of the unit from the shoulders downwards only. Guests place their heads on top of the cut-out and have their picture taken as if their bodies are those of a cowboy or cowgirl

Second option.

This option consists of wooden prop stocks, a form of punishment and humiliation for the guilty. Head and arms are placed into the stocks, whereafter your photograph is taken.

The pre drinks area can be detailed in various ways.

The area can be draped in hessian with hay bales as detail or detailed by means of a themed backdrop to set the scene of a Wild West town. 

These two units can also be used combined as props inside and outside the venue.

Entrance Area

The entrance area will be draped in hessian, and guests enter through our Lucky Lady saloon doors. These swing doors create the effect of entering a real western saloon.
Note the white and black check overlays on the outside tables, which provide detail and atmosphere to the entrance.

A second entrance option is placing a canyon wall inside the doorway. This canyon wall can either be built as a straight or curved tunnel, creating the effect of walking on the floor of a towering canyon. 

This wall is detailed with hessian and artificial rocks, creating a more authentic effect.

For the buffet area we create this authentic looking western food stations, which.SA Event Décor has custom built.

Each food station is different and is complete with its own lights and power points, ready for use.

From the top of the food station to the top of the venue we suggest draping fairy lights, creating the effect of starry, evening skies. The back of each food station is draped in Hessian, creating an outdoor rustic effect.
Roof Area

Stage area

The possibilities for a stage area are endless, and should clients have additional ideas, we will gladly incorporate these, by either changing décor around or creating an entirely new concept.

Positioned at the rear of the stage, a stunning backdrop of mountains and an Indian chief provides effective detail.

The front of the stage is detailed with hessian, actual saddles and sheriff's badges.

The perimeter of the stage will be surrounded by gum poles, to forming a terrace area. Upon these poles, we place the saddles and affix a cut-out of horses, thereby creating a corral.

The horse cut-outs can also be used in various other sections of the venue.

The first option consists of a cowboy boot, hat and a tequila bottle; this centrepiece is detailed with dried grass and hessian.
