Uplighting the Head-table

The place where we are having our reception is amazing. It has a stage in place which will be perfect for the head-table. Better yet, there is a drop-down screen which we can use for free to show our little memory video. (More on that another time...) The only issue is the drop down screen is right over the head-table. We are not planning on playing the video until we are done eating, so that is not the issue, but it will be a little difficult to get pipe-and-drape behind us without it getting in the way of the video. Additionally, it would be hard to put anything with any sort of height behind us. So, I've been racking my brain trying to figure out something to put behind us. Then it hit me: uplighting! 

I love uplighting, it can really add a lot to a room, take this image for instance:

Since our color palette is purple with royal blue, teal and lime accents, I am thinking the table will be covered in purple table cloths and skirting and we will do two sets of blue, lime and teal lights behind us. I think it will look really elegant throughout the night and really add a lot to the room.
