After owning a successful drape and lighting company in Philadelphia, he brings his talent and expertise to Atlanta, known for his ability to transform a space using floor to ceiling pipe and drape up to 20 ft in height, coupled with creating an ambiance of light along with accurate pin-spot lighting to illuminate your center pieces or any other focal point such as a dance floor, band stand, cake and card table, and much more. Don Calhoun offers a variety of drape colors for your next event. He is known for his attention to the finished product with tiebacks at the entrances, deep valances, giving an elegant feeling throughout.

No event is too small or too large, so please allow us to be a part of your next special moment in time.
Designer + Project Manager

She has been working in the event industry since 2014 gaining extensive experience and knowledge, specifically in drapery design and project managing for drapery installations. She credits her success to her creative problem solving skills, ability to think quickly on her feet, and consistently positive can-do attitude under high pressure situations. She finds that draping a venue is like choreographing a dance, where every piece must fit together seamlessly with the perfect presentation.
