You can section off an area of the mall with sheer drapery. You can buy these online very inexpensively.

To hang the drapes you can use pipe and drape, or you can use a variety of other options.

You can use patio umbrella bases with a tall dowel or pipe inserted  and stretch a cable between the poles. You could also have a frame built across the top using a 2×2″.

You could use barrels or tubs filled with rocks to secure a post, then string a  cable or build a frame on the top of the posts.

You could even rent a wedding tent and have it set up inside the mall and leave one side open to the party room.

What percent of tables will  be in the mall area? Could you move them all out there? Then you don’t have to divide your guests. I would try to use intimate table lighting so the focus stays on the areas you want and the background just fades into the dark.
