About Us

Cloud Nine Team ShotAt Cloud Nine Decor we have been creating spectacular, sky high décor since 2010. We have created décor for beautiful boutique weddings, out of this world music and arts festivals and large scale events such as the Tour de France Yorkshire Festival.

Cloud Nine Decor was founded by Ruthie Ford, a visual artist and designer with a passion for colour and festivities. With a background in Decorative Arts and participatory art projects Ruthie began creating her unique giant crochet flower gardens as participatory art installations. From there she moved to shop window displays, festivals, weddings and events. Ruthie has a wealth of experience in décor design and installation from initial planning to realising enormous sculptural works, from liaising with clients to designing and creating completely bespoke pieces, from working on site plans to managing teams of expert installers.

Cloud Nine Decor is made up of a highly skilled and endlessly creative group of individuals from fine artists and sculptors to theatre designers and seamstresses to carpenters and climbers!

At Cloud Nine Decor we bring colour, scale, movement and the unexpected to our events, bringing joy and magic to those that encounter our surreal wonderlands. Please get in touch if you would like to find out how we could work with you.
