THURLOW HOUSE MIDMAR DAM  handles all aspects of event décor for corporate functions as well as for other events, for example wedding décor. Wedding décor is different from other event décor in that it has a very personal element to it because it is your very special day.



We’ll take care of every angle of your event décor and bring all the elements of your function together with professionalism and grace. All you’ll have to do on the day is enjoy yourself and take credit for a fabulous event.

When handling wedding décor we ensure that not only are current trends taken into account, but that your personal preferences, wedding colours and your function venue all blend seamlessly to create a comprehensive wedding décor theme. Other event décor also does not work in isolation from related aspects of your corporate or other function.


From family fun days and parties to teambuilding events, conference events and year-end functions. Like all good events planners, we assemble quotes for everything and negotiate the best prices for you, Wedding or other type of events. As experienced event planners, we’re well equipped to handle every aspect of every event for you.
