How Geometric Wedding & Event Décor is Making Math Fun (Yes, Really)

The inner workings of the universe may always be a mystery. One popular theory posits that the world is actually made up of mathematical equations. While we can’t say for sure, we do know that geometry is making its mark on weddings, corporate events, and milestone celebrations. Triangles, circles, diamonds — you name it — are all making their way into mathematical-inspired event décor. From ceremonial archways to funky centerpiece additions, it’s time to indulge in the “theory of everything.”

Spotify’s annual holiday party was as sweet as ever with these up-lit sugar cube installations. Other intergalactic elements included a glitter face-painting station, a space-immersion arcade, and extra-terrestrial performers — not to mention a performance by Beck himself.

The Mine Safety Appliances Company drew all eyes at their 100-year celebration with custom up-lit signage — we love how its construction made a clever nod to mining excavation. The same motif played out with geometric-shelving units used to display colorful hard hats.
