Pipe and drape is used to temporarily divide, hide or decorate a space. Since it does not attach to the space, it complies with the rules in local venues. We use it for backdrops behind cake tables or head tables, draping a whole space when the space is not ideal for the event design, dividing a room that will be used for ceremony and reception, and hiding things like catering prep areas, venue wall hangings that cannot be removed and rest room areas.
It is very versatile and can be used with string lights behind it or wall washing lights in front of it to create a focal point in the room. If you are considering using it, check out this YouTube DIY video that shows how to assemble it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eZwn14MzCgg
