Can you cut string curtains in different shapes?

No, we do not cut string in different shapes. However, our string curtains can be easily cut without fraying, so we recommend our customers cut them into different shapes themselves if they so desire. This will ensure that your curtains match your artistic vision for the event.

What can you do with string curtains for decorating?

String curtains do more than simply covering a large wall; they can also function as an ornamental wall in your space. Long string curtains can section off a larger open space to create a smaller, more intimate event. This is especially ideal for small events held in large hotel event spaces.

You can hang string curtains from the ceiling on a moving track if you need them to move throughout the night, such as using string curtains as a partition for the main event.

What do you recommend for installing string curtains?

All string curtains from Generation Store come with a 2 1/2 top pocket header. You can slide a rod through the header to install the string curtains wherever you need them to go. We have a few other curtain heading styles for you to choose from so you can find the best option for your needs.

What kind of events can be decorated with string curtains?

String curtains are best suited to events that have large walls. They are festive and help to set the tone for a party, but they also have more maturity and elegance than similar decorations like streamers. You can use string curtains to decorate any number of events, including:

  • Galas, fetes, and celebrations
  • Weddings
  • Fundraising

The best plan is to utilize string curtains that suit the colors of your event. A color sampler can help you get a sense of your overall aesthetic for the big day (or night).

At Generation Store, we have a wide range of string curtains -- from more elegant, monochromatic metallic colors to bright multi-colored string curtains. No matter your event, string curtains can be just what you need to make the event shine.

How else can you use string curtains in decorating?

String curtains don't have to be the main piece of your decor. Fringe curtains are a great accent piece for the overall bigger design. You can also use them to divide up a larger space or crowd into smaller, more comfortable seating areas.

For weddings, fringe curtains can serve as a divider for the reception area. For instance, if you want the cocktail bar to be separated from the seating area or dance floor, fringe curtains can help to make it feel like its own room. You can also use them to draw the eye to the delicious food in the dining area.

We recommend gold fringe backdrops because they can be combined with almost any color scheme and party theme. They add elegance to the space, but they don't draw attention away from the rest of the decor. Gold is timeless, so it fits with both classic and more fun themes. These backdrops are perfect behind dessert and buffet tables, retail windows display, theaters, and Broadway stages, convention hall However, if you want something brighter and bolder, we can accommodate that with our many color options.

How are string fringe curtains used in retail display and other venues?

String curtains add an extra pop to the window display of your retail store. They can serve as a backdrop for your thematically arrayed window display, drawing the eye not only to your merchandise but to the store itself. Fringe curtains can also be used to protect your window display from prying customers inside. If there is a physical barrier between the customers and the display, the customers may be more likely to respect the boundary and leave your display untouched.

You might also use string fringe curtains to add a theme to an exhibit in a hotel lobby, museum, library, or local gallery. The artful decor can help to enhance the beauty of the works of art, without taking away from the artwork itself.

What are the string curtains from Generation Store made out of?

The string fringe curtains at Generation Store are made of durable, dense polyester, so that they can be cut by hand without damaging the final product. They come with a matching rod pocket top so you can hang them from your own rod.
