1) Easle is perfect for the chalkboard, you can find medium sized ones at hobby lobby, but you also might check CL, I found all of mine on there and they are all hand carved antiques.

2)I would have your DJ announce not to take the centerpieces.

3) I would make them long enough to cover where the tables meet, then nobody will know it is not one big tablecloth.  Have them match the length of the tablecloth.

4)What about using one of those room divider screens and draping the pics back and fourth, you can also get those on CL really cheap.

5)Love the idea of the zigzag flag draping, seen it before and it is really cute.

6)Put up a pic of the hall, would need to see it to get any ideas

4) If you can tape things to the wall – try using command hooks?  They’re very strong, and you can tie the ends of the string to the hooks.

6)  Post pics or a floor plan?

1. Every venue is different-look around and see what would work as far as hanging the window. Command hooks come in many different sizes to hold different weights. Tape off the wooden frame and spay paint the window with chalkboard paint, or use the brush on version.

2. Ditto with the DJ. Also ask some friends or family members to take on the specific responsibility of collecting and packing the books and taking them home- wherever you want them to go.

3. Runners should be long enough to hang about 12 inches over each end of the table. If your tables are 10 feet long then the finished size of the runners should be 12 feet. The width of the runner should be from 14 inches up to 1/3 the width of the table- in your case that would be 20 inches.

4. Use 3M Command hooks. They attach to almost any surface and come off with no damage or marking to the wall.

5. The bunting is a great idea for the stage opening.


You could also make up some pomanders, hang them from a length of fishing line then stretch the fishing line from 2 command hooks placed as ligh on the wall as you like.

Here’s the link  to pictures the OP posted in a previously about the hall
