Ideas to Build Parade Floats

Celebrate Freedom with an Egyptian Parade Float

Posted by paradefloats on February 17, 2011

This year, celebrate freedom with an Egyptian parade float! This is a fun, mysterious, and ornate float theme. Think hieroglyphics, pyramids, and the Nile River. These images will help you envision your Egyptian parade float.

Framing the Float
Start by framing your float with metallic purple fringe. Cover the floor of the trailer with metallic gold floral sheeting to resemble the sun hitting the sand. You may want to add a flowing strip of metallic blue floral sheeting to represent the Nile River. There are tons of great float decorations available for making your float stand out!

Float Decorations
Place an Egyptian entrance way fit for a Pharaoh on your float. This entrance way is ornate and detailed with gold. It stands an impressive 11 feet by 7 feet inches tall. Matching royal columns are also available in Egyptian party decorations. Add accent palm trees and miniature palm trees to give the float a Mediterranean flare. Don’t forget the sphinx and camel standees on the float!

Egyptian Wearables
Egyptian costumes are beautiful and exotic. Dress up as a Pharaoh, Cleopatra, or King Tut. Start with a white garment, linen was a common fabric used in ancient Egypt. Add an Egyptian belt to compliment your costume with the perfect color combination of gold, blue and black. The Cleopatra headband helps to create the look of a real Egyptian with a gold snake. The velvet Pharaoh crown hat enhances your royal costume. This unique velvet hat is adult-sized. Our King Tut headband is a snake adorned headpiece with gold stripes. Put on this cool, soft, and flexible gold snake armband featuring jeweled eyes to complete your Egyptian look.
