French term or phrase: animation et décoration
This phrase shows up as a type of application for a manufacturer's transfer films.
It's the headline on a product sheet for a type of transfer film.

The full phrase is Solutions Animation et Decoration.

I googled the phrase and found that is an expression for a type of service provided for events or parties. I am fairly sure that the decoration is decoration, but I am a bit puzzled about the English for animation. Do we have a similar expression in English for this type of service?

Also, what does the animation mean?

I think this is probably obvious, but I'm stumped.

decoration


Explanation:
We still have very little context (see the discussion entries), but I think animation and décoration both mean the same thing here, so I'd translate them as one word.

I think it's unlikely to have anything to do with events - the asker appears to have googled "animation" and come up with the "entertainment" meaning, but there's no evidence from the context that this is relevant here.

Asker: It seems a bit of a stretch to say that animation means decoration.
