Any party or event can be so much more interesting and fun if it has a theme. The extent of the ” theming ” will be determined by the time and resources available to the organiser and the budget. Some corporate clients are able to afford lavish decorations, props and entertainment. Usually they engage the services of specialist Theme Companies to transform the venue into an amazing set which will astound and delight their guests. Balloon Decorating can also be used to great effect. At the other end of the spectrum even a birthday party can be themed with a bit of imagination and it doesn’t have to cost a fortune.
Popular themes for corporate events include :
James Bond ( casino tables, black tie etc )
Carribean ( steel band, limbo dancing, grass skirts, coconuts etc )
Seaside ( Punch and Judy, deck chairs, fish and chips, jazz band etc )
Black and White ( black and white balloons and table decorations, black tie )
Las Vegas ( casino tables, balloon decorating )
Wild West ( hot dogs, country band, line dancing, mechanical bull )
Popular themes for children’s parties include:
Pirate Party ( Pirate Puppet Show,pirate flags, pirate balloons )
When planning a theme party consider the following :
How can I decorate the room?
What music can I use to create atmosphere appropraite to the theme?
What costumes will people wear?
What food can I serve which will fit in with the theme?
Can I make customised invitations to fit the theme?
Are there any games which will suit this theme?
What entertainment could I hire which will compliment the theme?
The best way to formulate your plan is to get a group of friends or colleagues together and brainstorm ideas to produce a list of options. Then cost everything out and prioritise your list.
One of the easiest ways to change the look of a room is with balloons. For a private party it’s easy to do this yourself but for an event it’s better to hire a qualified and experienced Balloon Decorator to carry out the Balloon Decorating for you.
Make your next social event a theme party, the effort will be worth it!
