Glowmi has been lighting up the Toronto and Ontario event scene for around 2 years now and in that time we have been fortunate enough to work on some huge events with some fantastic companies and people.
Each event is different and each client’s vision is unique. We have provided design consultations on so many events, helped to curate multiple setups and bring ideas to life.
We often get asked how best to incorporate various glow pieces from our inventory into events, so we decided to create this short blog to showcase some ideas that can inspire you when you are creating your event/party concepts. Whether you are looking to use all out glow or just add accent lighting and a few flashes of color to the room, we have you covered!
So take a look below and see all creative ways as to how you can use our LED Glow Furniture and Decor to create event magic!
LED Lounge Furniture
Most large corporate and social events that we have worked on include some kind of Lounge seating area. Whether it is to create an upscale and inviting seated area for a cocktail reception, or to create a VIP area that really stands out, our LED Benches, Cubes, Lounge Tables and upcoming LED Modular Sofa’s will work a treat.
You can use the furniture to create a 100% glowing lounge, or use a few pieces to provide accent lighting and combine with more traditional white leather lounge furniture. Either way, the result is a stunning, upscale and modern feeling lounge.
LED Dining Tables
You will have seen standard Circular or Square Banquet dining tables which seat 8-10 people. 99% of these setups have various coloured linens with accent charger plates and accent centerpiece. Wouldn’t it be great to have something different? We are bringing a brand new 8 seater LED Dining Table made from a Jumbo Cube with a tempered glass top. Simple yet elegant, and a great way to lift up the whole room.
At any Corporate Event, Gala or Wedding, the bar is always a high traffic area! Some venues and event spaces are not properly equipped to have a full service bar area, especially if the event is outdoors or in a ballroom. So what to do if this is an issue? Our modular, cordless and portable LED bars can be setup anywhere quickly and efficiently.
Whatever size you want, we can make it happen, be it a small bar with a single bartender, or a massive 4 sided enclosed bar capable of accommodating 8-10 bartenders and serving thousands of guests.
Lighting at any event is a crucial element. DJ Booths and uplights around the perimeter of the room are common sources of ambient lighting, but sometimes the main body and guts of the room can look bare. Banquet/Dining tables can take up over 75% of the room and centerpieces can be very elaborate and expensive, especially if using fresh flowers. Our LED Spheres/Orbs are an inexpensive alternative to other costly centerpieces which make a bold statement, and really add depth to the whole room. If class and elegance on a budget is what you are going for, then these could be a great option.
LED Columns, Pillars and Planters
These items can be used in many ways, but the most popular use seems to be when a client wants to create clear separation and define a particular area. Isles and Walkways are a very popular use for these, as well as using them to create brightly lit ambient entrances. First impressions count, so imagine seeing these along a red carpet or at a grand entrance. They would add to the welcoming feel and help guide guests to where you want them to go. They can also be used as a backdrop to an area you want to bring extra attention to such as a head table.
LED Dance Floor
Who doesn’t like a good dance! When the music gets pumping and the urge to shake your booty takes over, most of us will head to the dance floor. Our soon to be arriving LED Dance Floor will be the talk of any party and serve as a focal point for your event. With hundreds of effects, patterns and animations available, and customizable text scrolling we will have your party jumping like never before!!!
LED Dessert Table/Candy Station
More and more events these days are having dedicated dessert and candy stations, especially weddings, children’s parties and Bar/Bat Mitzvahs. Our Glowing LED Tables, Cubes, Display Stands and Serving Trays can really help bring a Desert/Candy Station to life. You can even have your event service staff use the LED Serving Trays to hand out things like Hors D’oeurves and Champagne to your guests. We have many pieces in stock that will enhance and highlight the presentation of your food and beverage.
LED Marquee Letters
Personalization at events is huge. You want people to remember your event long after it ends and whether it is your brand or your name you want highlighted, Marquee letters are a surefire way to get the message across while also filling out the room. When you strategically position them, they can have a huge impact.
So these are just a few ways in which Glow Furniture and Decor can be incorporated into any large corporate event, gala, wedding or other social celebration. Rest assured, we will work with you closely to create, design and execute your event concept and continue to source the latest and greatest LED Products in the industry.
Keep it lit Toronto!

Winter is over and Patio season is almost here! Cool Tips to take your Patio from good to great in 2017!

Top Tips on how to Improve Lighting for your Patio this season.
The winter is finally over and as we head into spring many of you will be looking forward to patio season and spending time outdoors as the cold grip gives way to warmer temperatures. Those of you with Patios in your Restaurants and Bars will be looking to get an edge over your competition and find creative new ways of drawing in patrons.
With that in mind, we have some tips and tricks which will take your patio from good to great this season with the use of creative lighting. Your Patio will not only look amazing, but also drive traffic from all corners with its eye catching design.
1) Create a Feature Wall with LED Uplights.
You can create an inexpensive short height feature wall on one side using potted plants, foliage or stained wooden planks, or even dress up existing brickwork with plants/vines etc. This keeps a degree of separation from the inside and provides a warm natural ambiance. Browns and greens really go well together and give your guests that outdoors feeling. Use LED Uplights or LED Wall Washers to highlight the color and provide a contrast to the eye. If you have a tree as part of you patio, use an uplight to highlight it and change colors as the night goes on.
This is a great way to make your outdoor space feel warm and inviting, and look appealing to passers by.
2) Add LED Strip Lighting to the bottom of your outdoor furniture and Bar
This is an easy way of introducing ambient lighting and helping to create an atmosphere whilst using your existing fixtures and furnishings. Find LED Strip lighting from any local hardware store and attach it to the bottom of furniture pieces and your bar. This effect really adds class and a modern touch and with color controls, you can change colors according to the clientele and energy out on the patio. The only thing with this is that you will need a good electrical guy to hide the wiring and route it back to one controller. The wires/extensions will need to be hidden well and for this it is best to pay for a professional.
3) Add a modern feel with Cordless LED Furniture & Decor Accents
A great and easy way to add life to your patio. LED Glow Furniture is a relatively new trend and what makes it so great is its versatility. Use it indoors or outdoor/s, for pop up events, light up in different colors. You don't need to worry about expensive wiring/cabling. The rechargeable LED Modules will provide up to 12 hours of illumination. Just pick up the lightweight pieces and move into position. Colors such as White and Yellow will give a soft classy and upscale feel, whilst a mix of colors such as red, green, blue and pinks etc will provide a more high energy vibrant feel.
You can even set them to flash and/or fade in different colors which creates a light show and will be sure to attract interest and attention and drive traffic to your space. Whatever, you feel like doing that day you can do. Such versatility is paramount to your success and keeping patrons interested and engaged. You can use many pieces for a eye catching and striking look, or just opt for a few accent pieces interspersed with your other existing furniture just to add a pop of color.

Glow Furniture not only looks amazing but also helps to draw attention to certain elements in your operation. Some of our customers love to have a popup outdoor Bar in the Summers and our Glowing Modular Bar counters provide not just a portable solution to this, but also act as a focal point when illuminated. When strategically located, it helps to train all eyes on the bar from all corners of the patio and acts like a beacon and magnet drawing in customers to the bar where they spend money. When something looks appealing, patrons are more likely to spend their money. Many of our customers say that having an outdoor popup bar is a great revenue source and that our LED Bars were a fantastic investment for them which paid for itself in no time at all.
4) Add Table Lighting for an understated and cost effective way to lift up the look and feel of your Patio, Deck or Terrace.
If your budget is tight and you can't afford to invest thousands into new decor, furnishings or fixtures then the easiest way to add life to your outdoor space is to use small LED table mood lamps and LED Candles. These are inexpensive and much like the LED Furniture we offer, can be set to a multitude of colors and effects such as fade and flash. These are a great way to build ambiance and atmosphere. Whether you are going for a romantic feel, modern upscale, party feel or are looking to customize your lighting according to a special theme (think St Patrick's Day or Canada Day etc), these small mood lamps can really set the tone without being too bold.
They are cordless, illuminate for up to 12 hours. Have 16 color options and are waterproof meaning that you don't need to worry about leaving them out in the rain etc. Dollar for dollar, these Mood Lamps provide great value for money.
We carry many options available for the Mood Lamps in all types of shapes and sizes. View the available options by clicking here. Available for purchase across Canada and the USA.
We hope you find these tips useful and wish you all a successful Summer and Patio season.
