PapaKåta Case Study

The company

Established in 2006, PapaKåta is based in York, Scotland and Henley-on-Thames and has delivered more than 2,000 events across the UK. The firm is also an exclusive supplier of original Sperry sailcloth tents, which are handcrafted in Massachusetts and an icon of the Hamptons wedding and party scene. They aim to go above and beyond, exceeding customers’ expectations and creating the ultimate wow factor, no matter what the project is.

The brief

PapaKåta approached us to provide innovative lighting solutions to add the finishing touches to their giant Scandinavian teepees, which are popular for hosting weddings, festivals, celebrations and corporate events.

What they said

Sally Pellen, PapaKåta marketing manager, explains, “We’re always looking for unique and decorative lighting solutions to help illuminate our teepees and Sperry sailcloth tents, showing them off in the best possible light and enhancing their already striking appearance.

“As an outdoor event provider, we require external lighting that is safe and effective on location. Festive Lights came highly recommended and their professional approach and competitive pricing stood out.”

Delighted with the products and support offered by Festive Lights, Sally continued, “The service by Festive Lights has been professional and helpful, and, as is paramount in the events industry, efficient and timely.”

What we said

Festive Lights’ general Manager, Stephen Alty, added, “Teepees lend themselves to dramatic lighting schemes and provide a huge blank canvas to work with. PapaKåta has a fantastic reputation and stands out for allowing customers to personalise their event with a range of accessories and added extras. Festoon lights create a welcoming ambience and are perfectly offset by the clean lines and neutral tones of Teepees and Sperry tents.”
