Damask Texture Lighting with Blue Uplighting

Damask lighting on the wall with blue uplighting and pin-spots on the centerpieces.

Damask texture lighting on the walls help give a large space a touch of elegance for a wedding. It also helps cover up two large ugly cork boards that are located at the end of the room. Texture lighting helps cover up unsightly room features easily.

Blue wireless uplighting around the room helps give color and pull the decor items of the wedding together.

Pin-spots on the tables are the finishing touch making each of the centerpieces pop and bringing light to each of the guests tables. Using pin-spots with uplights is a great combination and brightens the center of the room for photos where the guests are.

Venue: Masonic Temple – Alexandria, VA

Frozen Themed Party Gobo Light

Frozen themed party gobo light with blisslight behind it.

The movie Frozen is a great place to pull inspiration for some pretty amazing party lighting ideas.

We combined a blisslight 15 rental  with a gobo light to create this magical Frozen inspired design and lighting concept for Emilia’s 5th birthday.

Using the blisslight behind the gobo light and design adds a unique moving element that enhances the Frozen feel by having a slow moving blue pattern and stars behind it.

We also recommend using blue battery powered uplights to help accentuate the frozen feeling as well in the room.

Get this look today and create your own Frozen party! Check availability for your party.

Blue Wireless Uplighting with Fresh Ideas Management

food display with blue uplighting

Blue wireless uplights help add interest to a food display.

Great example of blue wireless uplighting setup by Fresh Ideas Management  in Columbia, Missouri at an event that they catered. The uplighting added a nice touch to highlight the amazing food that they had created for their corporate event.

Our event was not a wedding, but rather a high-end party for a small corporate group. Brian and Superlative Events were so wonderful to work with! Very professional and extremely customer service oriented. The equipment I rented was top-notch and very simple to use. I will gladly rent again from Superlative! – Jami Jones, Fresh Ideas Management, LLC

Thanks again to Fresh Ideas for the great photo showing the lighting they setup at their event!

blisslights compared in a video

Video of Blisslights Compared

What’s the difference between a Blisslight 15 and a Blisslight 50? How do the blue Blisslight models look like compared to the green ones?

We did a head to head test of the Blisslight 50 (Green), Blisslight 15 (Green), and the Blissilght 15 (Blue) to show you exactly what each light looks like under the same lighting conditions.

Blisslights were resting on the floor aimed up at a white ceiling. The ceiling was 6.5ft away from the light fixture. The room was 15ftx16ft and each light was able to more than fill the room at that distance with laser stars.

All Blisslights tested:
– Have a slow moving blue nebula effect that can be dimmed
– Nebula effect is approximately 2.5ft of diameter throw for every 1ft of distance to the source it’s projecting onto up to about 25ft x 25ft
– Stars slowly move
– Will easily cover the ceiling over any dance floor

The Blisslight 50:
– Much more powerful laser and multiple holographic elements that create a more realistic universe of stars.
– Effectively covers a 50ft x 50ft area (double the Blisslight 15)
– Needs to be used with a stand

The Blisslight (15) Blue:
– Stars appear more realistic in color
– Stars are slightly blurry compared to Blisslight Green versions

two toned wireless uplighting blue and amber

Two Color Uplighting, Amber and Blue with Cake Spotlight

wireless uplighting with blue and amber uplights

Blue and amber wireless uplights create a two toned uplighting effect with white under the table lighting with wireless uplights. A cake spotlight makes the cake pop.

Two color uplighting is a great way to create a high end look. In this example at the Gaithersburg Marriott in Maryland, they used our battery uplights to create a blue and amber color combination.

They also used 2 of the wireless uplights to create a nice under the table lighting effect for the sweetheart table. The photo also shows our rental cake spotlights that help make the cake pop at the reception.

The second photo shows a bigger view of the room where you can better see how the cake spotlight really makes the cake pop out and how the under the table lighting makes the sweetheart table pop on the stage.

They used a screen and a projector to show a slideshow and used one of our monogram designs on the screen before and after the slideshow when it wasn’t playing the video.

So when you are looking to rent uplights in Maryland check out what we have to offer and see how much you’ll save.

king birth announcement crown onesie

Baby Announcement Design with Gobo Light

two color pink and blue gobo template

Two color gobo template with circles that inspired the design.

We are expecting our first child and there is a lot of pressure that comes with that! The most pressure (so far) came from announcing our child to the world…

People expect designers to be creative, they expect us to do things that other people wouldn’t spend 5 seconds on, and they expect it to be amazing. In other words, pressure.

Any designer can tell you, it’s easy being creative for other people but being creative for yourself and for your future progeny is a whole different ball game.

The Concept

My wife Kari is the real designer in the family. She was on Etsy  and was inspired by a great example of our last name “King” with a crown in the design on the front of a onesie. Going with the regal theme and the play on our last name she wanted it to say “Heir Apparent” somewhere and the expected date of our progeny.

It made it easier to think of Kari as the client and then coming up with ideas around her vision.

Making It

I knew that the design would require taking over our living room. We ordered the onesie and on the day it arrived Kari had to go to a work function and I thought it would be the perfect time to create the announcement and take over the house.  I knew that I wanted a soft pink and blue in the background and I wanted to the shirt to really pop out of the background. I made the pink and blue gobo design so I could get the pink and blue aspect of the design to pop out of the background when projected with a gobo light.

I knew that the white onesie would have to be in focus while the background would need to be blurred. I used some twine and two lighting stands to hang the shirt from so I could get enough distance between the shirt and the background to get the blur effect right. I also knew I needed a ton of light specifically on the shirt so I could get a really high contrast look so I ended up using three of our cake spotlight rental lights.

I needed a wall to project on and a flat boring wall wasn’t interesting enough. I ended up using the curtains for our windows on the front of our house to project onto. The light did a really great job covering up the gray and white scroll pattern on the window treatment while adding some texture and interest in behind the colored circles of light.

I used a prime 50mm lens shot at f/1.8 so I could get a blurred background while keeping the shirt in focus.

The final birth announcement that we created.

The Final Result

As with most creative endeavors the devil’s in the details. I added some detail to the clothes pins holding the onesie to make them blue and pink, added a crown to the label on the shirt, enhanced the contrast and some colors as well as adding the text.

It helps having an entire inventory of lighting at my disposal, but thinking creatively with light can enable a number of design ideas and projects that would be otherwise impossible to do. Texture lighting like the gobo lights are infinitely versatile and we can help you come up with a  way to use lighting creatively for your projects.

I think it came out pretty well and most importantly checked off the hardest part of having a child (so far). What do you think? Ideas, thoughts, comment below.

Large Winter Wedding Monogram Light Rental

Large Winter Wedding Monogram Light & Wireless Uplighting Rental

Large Winter Wedding Monogram Light Rental

For this winter wedding there were over 300 guests in attendance and it was a large room with not a lot of room for lighting with the number of guests in the space. Using a keystone corrected monogram we projected from the side of the room to the area behind the sweetheart table in the front of the room. The LED monogram light rental held up to the high power halogen texture lights on either side of the front of the room. We also rented the blue uplighting used throughout the room which was the perfect fit considering there was almost no space to place the lights around the room because of all the tables in the space.

We can work with you to get the best projection possible in any space!

Venue: Cardinal Room – Bowie, MD
