1. Recycled Lighting
From used wine bottles to repurposed paper cups, DIY event lighting is a creative solution for any event. But this is an especially cool idea for themed events. For example, imagine using old beer bottle recycled lighting at a business event for all of your beer and wine vendors.
2. Industrial Lighting
Industrial lighting is all the rage these days. It utilizes building materials like PVC pipe, wrought iron, and even old factory lighting to create a very stylish glow. Industrial lighting can also be quite masculine and perfect for a men’s event.
3. Natural Lighting
Tree branches, antlers, and even Autumn leaves are excellent editions to any event lighting scheme. Natural lighting brings the outdoors in, making this a unique and creative idea for camping or adventure-related events. But this lighting option can be tweaked to work well with other types of business events, too.
4. Chandelier Lighting
What better says elegant than a beautiful or funky chandelier? If you’re looking to impress with your event lighting, a custom chandelier might just be for you. If you prefer a more unique and style-forward look, you can use jewelry, candles, or even recycled glass bottles to create a custom chandelier.
5. Pendant Lighting
Hanging pendants are excellent for outdoor events, but they work just as well with indoor events. Glass pendants can offer a more upscale vibe while paper pendant lanterns are more casual and festive.
6. Candle Lighting
Want something a little more romantic and intimate for your event’s lighting? Candles or candelabras may not be the most creative lighting choice. But when you consider the infinite ways you can use candles at your event, you’ll understand why we included this option in our list.
7. Lantern Lighting
This creative lighting choice combines two of the other categories on this list into one: candle and pendant lighting. Hand lanterns lit by either real or faux candles around your event for a classic design.
