Spirits with the Spirits at Elmwood Cemetery

Elmwood Cemetery has been keeping Memphis at rest since 1852, but last night their residents rose to the occasion of Spirits with the Spirits! It was a great night full of frightening fun and spooky events all surrounded by flickering lights and strange sights.

Mahaffey provided the final arrangements for the event, which included the tent, tables, chairs, linens (Black and White Venice & Aubergine), uplights with colored gels and lounge cubes with black spandex covers. The lighting provided was perfectly dimmed and helped set the tone for the night.

Upon arrival, everyone received a flashlight to help them navigate the cemetery and spot the historic tombs. Attendees were also able to walk through the dimly lit Lord’s Chapel and  listen to Tony Thomas playing piano.

Two old black and white movies—Young Frankenstein and Dracula–were shown during the event. Audio and video were provided by AreaOne Ministries. They projected Young Frankenstein on the side of an old building in the cemetery, and Dracula was shown on the inside wall of the hospitality tent.

Tout le Monde and Hank & Nora, a bluegrass and folk band, played a variety of live songs in the graveyard and a fortune teller set up in a makeshift room created with Mahaffey’s pipe and drape was telling fortunes and predicting futures!

Mahaffey’s lounge cubes and bistro tables were set up inside the tent for attendees to socialize and mingle while sipping on Halloween themed cocktails and munching on pass hors d’oeuvres.

Thanks to our very own Shonna Springer, who also happens to be a fabulous photographer, for capturing these great shots at the event! Shonna will also be serving as the resident historian at Elmwood Cemetery for the coming year. For more information on Elmwood Cemetery, visit there web page or call them at 901.774.3212.

Memphis Zoo Brew

This past Friday night, we sponsored Zoo Brew at the Memphis Zoo. Mahaffey was the proud provider of a 30 ft by 45 ft frame tent. The covered ultra lounge tent was a great place for everyone to relax, socialize and taste beers from around the world. This was Mahaffey’s third time to sponsor the event, which is always a huge success. Take a look at some of these great photos we captured!

From Historic Vault to Ultra Lounge!

A historic vault set in the basement of luxury apartment building Metro 67 in Downtown Memphis was transformed into a chic ultra lounge last week. Check out these cool photos, showcasing our fun LED bar. How amazing is it that a simple switch of a light color can completely reinvent a room!

Creating the Ultra Lounge

Ultra LoungeWhether you’re planning a contemporary wedding or an upscale corporate event, an ultra lounge is the ultimate addition to any event.  To set the scene for the lounge, it’s all about lighting and furniture.  Let’s face it… what’s an ultra lounge without “lounge” furniture?

You don’t have to go all out and spend your entire budget on elaborate lighting effects.  Adding a couple simple and affordable can lights with color gels are a wonderful way to incorporate your theme colors, create a fun, party atmosphere, and transform a boring wall into a vibrant accent.  Lighting is a simple, cost-effective way to keep the WOW factor you’re going for with minimal effort.

Clear Flooring over Pool

The sky’s the limit when it comes to lounge furniture.  While your options used to be limited to couches and chairs, there are now multiple pieces to fill up your lounge.  From banquettes to sofas to end tables to a variety of couches and chairs, lounge furniture is a great way to spice up your event.  LED bars, tables, lamps, and other decor pieces, all of which can be set to the color of your choice, give your event that extra touch of chic.

Do you have a pool, pond, or other small body of water right in the middle of your event space?  Setting up clear acrylic flooring over the pool not only provides a unique dance floor, it also giving you more options for lighting.  To keep the cords and wires from plain view, we can set them up in the corners of the covered area.  The lighting will reflect off both the water and the flooring material, creating the full lounge effect.

Ultra Lounge

If you’ve opted for a tent, an ceiling liner can add a dramatic effect, again with minimal effort.  Not only does it set an elegant vibe and cover tent poles and framing, but you can also adjust the lights to shine in specific areas, which can create another dimension to your look.

There are several other accessories you can add to your ultra lounge…  staging, various dance floor pieces, AC/heating, and more.

The Ultra Lounge!

Here is just one theme from “Meet Mahaffey” – the incredible open house that allowed us to transform our warehouse into the most fabulous event space! Here is the super suave tent that was constructed inside the warehouse and transformed into an ultra lounge. We used a clear dance floor, which is typically placed over a pool or body of water… just to show it off. We added some fun silver beads and confetti to spice it up a bit, since it was placed over concrete and not a pool.
The white leather lounge furniture was accented with green lighting. Haute Horticulture created a floral chandelier out of white roses and Bells of Ireland- which served as our focal point. This was definitely where the party was at- and The Kevin and Bethany Paige Band kept us moving all night!
