How to Decorate a Party Hall With Netting

by Sarah Freeman, Demand Media

    Whether you're hosting a school dance or wedding reception, netting is one decoration material that can help adorn the event. You can use netting to decorate your party hall so that it brings out the theme of the occasion. Choose a netting that will match this feel, then stream the material from the ceiling, hang it from walls and layer it across the tables for a one-of-a-kind look.

    Step 1

    Pick a theme or color scheme for your event at the party hall. Netting comes in a variety of colors and styles that can bring out the feel of your event's theme.

    Step 2

    Stream netted tulle pieces from the ceiling to create an elegant atmosphere. Tulle is a inexpensive and easy-to-work-with material that comes in a variety of colors, so buy enough to cover the party hall overhead. Attach these streamers of tulle with a stapler behind a centered hanging piece of the room, such as the party hall's chandelier. Bring each strip of the fabric from that point toward the sides of the room and attach it on that side, as well. For smaller rooms, attach the tulle so that it flows overhead from the left to right sides of the party hall.

    Step 3

    Make netted tulle table decorations. Attach the fabric so that it hangs in bunches from the front of tables, or place it in bunched piles around a table centerpiece. For added sparkle, stream twinkle lights into the fabric for a soft glow.

    Step 4

    Use fisher's netting for decorations to bring out a nautical or beach theme. Lay a blue tablecloth over each table, and complete the look by placing a strip of fisher's net as a table runner on top. Additionally, hang fisher's net flush against a wall. Attach aquatic decorations such as fish cutouts or paper anchors to the net to continue the theme while sprucing up an otherwise plain wall.

    Step 5

    Create a balloon drop with the help of a net if your party hall has a high enough ceiling for this surprise to make an impact. Buy a net large enough to hold the number of balloons you desire. Stream the netting overhead with enough slack to store the balloons inside. When it's time for the surprise, release a portion of the net so that the air-filled balloons float to the ground all at once.
