Wedding Planner Magazine asked Raj Tents to contribute to their feature on ” Creating a Venue from the Ground Up – Three tent rental companies share behind-the-scenes peeks at a top tented wedding”.

Raj Tents Beach Chic Pergolas and Pavilions

We are happy to be able to offer the Beach Chic range of Pergolas and Pavilions to our valued clients who have been asking for tents that are both elegant and laid back for poolside and beach entertaining.

‘Being based in Southern California was the main motivation, with so many marvelous properties and beaches calling out for luxury tents in a more casual theme’ says Dominic Mitchell, Raj Tents co-founder  ‘Of course our destination events were a big inspiration too as the collection invokes the elegant beach feel of the amazing resorts we work at’.

The Beach Chic collection is all about relaxed eclecticism with warm white layered into aqua tones. Seashell chandeliers give the natural texture of nature to offset the blue hues evocative of the ocean’s tranquility. To keep the feel cool and simple, the Blue Wave valance is appliqué in sea-spray green, sky blue and white with a matching interior and aqua toned exterior.

Many thanks to the fabulous Hotel Casa Del Mar in Santa Monica for allowing us to shoot the Beach Chic collection at their pool. Apart for being a fantastic hotel in a great location, the Casa Del Mar and her neighbor, Shutters on the Beach, share event planning and catering services giving a lot of flexibility to their corporate and weddings patrons whilst melding historic elegance, state of the art facilities and beach style.

The Beach Chic Pergola overlooking the Ocean was shot at the Capella Pedregal in Cabo San Lucas where Raj Tents set up an extensive beach installation – watch out for some great pictures of the unique beach wedding coming up in one of the next posts.

LA Art Show 2015

With over 20 countries exhibiting at the LA Art Show at the Los Angeles Convention Center from 14th to 18th January, there are lots of exciting things to see. Raj Tents provided the lounge setting under 3 Grand Pavilion tents for the United Arab Emirates with whom we have a great long standing relationship. Raj Tents were honored to be called on after three different tent installations at the UAE Embassy in Washington D.C over recent years. These included the UAE’s National Day celebrations and a highlight of the social calendar, the Washington National Opera Ball where embassies host dinners prior to the grand ball.

 

 

Happy Holidays

Old Hollywood Holiday Party Theme

Old Hollywood is a great way to pay homage to the iconic golden age of Hollywood. In fact there are a number of themes to go with; from Silent Era Vintage Hollywood to Rat Pack Hollywood. What they all have in common is Glitz and Glamour!

Raj Tents inventory lends itself very well to the Old Hollywood feel of hip and chic coupled with elegance and romance. The strong Moroccan and Spanish Colonial influence in design and architecture of those times comes into play too. Ivory, Robin’s Egg Blue, Sky Blue and Red are very dramatic and elegant colors, or a simple Black and White color palette works well too. One association with Hollywood of the golden era is the drinks and service from those times – Raj Tents Old Hollywood themed bars and buffets are a great way to create décor impact for your Holiday Party.
