Ivan Carlson · Event Design + Production

For over 45 years we have collaborated around the world bringing memorable events to life.

Our range of specialties – creative ideation, theme development, custom fabrication, floral design, intricate lighting, staging, audio (and so much more) – make us your one-stop-shop to create the event experience that everyone remembers.

Glow bars? We got em’. Life-size horses? We got that too. Custom illuminated marquee letters? We can build them. No clue where to start? We’ve got ideas a plenty!

  • Wishing you all a colorful weekend!
  • Sometimes all it takes is a little inspiration to find the theme of your next event. We call this the budget friendly method because we likely have these pieces already built and in stock.
•
These themes have “wow-ed” many in the past, and continue to “wow” others in the now. Sit back, relax and take a gander at all of your possibilities. We got you.
