The brands we are lucky enough to work with all appreciate the need to be original when entertaining their guests. Creativity is key and has become a currency in its own right, positioning brands as leaders, telling interesting stories and showing new ways of doing things. As you can imagine this is music to our ears as we have always challenged the status quo and love to bring fresh perspectives to our design and event planning services.
When considering theming it is crucial to be authentic, because themed events tend to honour a time gone-by, stepping back and immersive oneself into a design concept that once was popular in history. There are tonnes of event themes that resurface time and time again, such as art deco Gatsby, masked balls or prohibition, each acting as a time capsule supported by a huge array of props that help make the design feel real. Nowadays, however, the need to be fully immersive and believable is crucial, and this type of design is an art form in itself. Moving from quite typical props to bespoke pieces of scenic construction means that you can offer an experience that turns the wheel of time back as if your guests have literally stepped into another world.
Here are some of our creative corporate event themes that will cause a stir at your next celebration:

Understanding a theme and applying this to an interior is our specialism. The more creative the better. We like to become integrated into the history and provenance of the theme itself, choosing authentic props and set design which transports each guest into another world. It is the small details that really shines through and which ensures lasting memories for anyone who is lucky enough to attend the party.
