December 16, 2023
Lights make our lives more colourful and add more colour to our events. Different events require different types of lights. Event companies must ensure they are aware of the types of lights to be selected for a specific event. Athoor Rentals provides a variety of lights that event companies can select from.
1. Disco Ball - A disco ball might not sound like a light source at first glance. However, the ball emits light in all directions when it rotates making it the perfect light source for night clubs and dance parties. It is also used in music festivals, cruise ship parties, fashion shows and casino nights. Check out our disco ball here.

2. Festoon Lights - Festoon lights are outdoor lights made up of light bulbs attached to a cable creating a string of lights. They are multipurpose lights used on numerous occasions. They are primarily used in outdoor events such as outdoor weddings, fairs, garden parties, poolside parties, and engagement parties. Retro-themed events can use vintage furniture available at Athoor Rentals. Buy festoon lights here.
3. Fairy Lights - Fairy lights are a string of lights similar to festoon lights. However, the size of the bulbs in the individual lights is much smaller than those of festoon lights. Fairy lights with their soft and twinkling illumination are mostly considered for decorative purposes as the light they emit is not very bright. Fairy lights are used for weddings, garden parties, baby showers and decors in restaurants and bars. Buy fairy lights here.
