80’s FLASHBACK!

Outside of the ballroom awaited our 80’s Flashback Double Entry. Our double walk-through truss entry was surrounded by elaborate, memorable 80’s icons from oversized VHS and audio cassettes, to giant Rubik’s cubes, to Homer Simpson. The title overhead read, “Totally Awesome 80’s” while characters from the arcade game Pac-Man ran across the top. In the center of the entry was the unforgettable MTV Moon Man with an authentic 1980’s-style TV set displaying a graphic of Max Headroom sited overhead.

Two of our Satellite Guitar Bars were placed in the foyer where guests could get beverages before entering the main event. The 9’ bars served both a decorative and practical purpose.

The star of the show was our brand new Purple Rain Bar. Each of the four, back-to-back, inner-lit glass block trimmed bar surrounds featured lush, purple velvet panels. The center focal point was the oversized recreation of the “Purple Rain” guitar set atop a metal clad pedestal with a translucent glowing surface.
