TOP 2022 THEMES

With 2022 off to a quieter start than expected for the events industry all (still) thanks to Covid. A lot of us will be finding a good excuse to have a bit of fun and plan a party or event for spring/summer 2022.

This year will be another year of reunions and welcoming employees back into the workplace so companies will be looking to celebrate putting the last couple of years behind us. 

If you’d like your event to be truly spectacular, one of the most exciting things you could do is have a theme. A fun theme can make your event feel cohesive, unique, memorable and add to your guests’ experience. We’ve picked out some event themes that are already proving to be popular to help you start to gather ideas and inspiration to bring your party to life.

Enter a world of splendour, glitz & grandeur and experience the spectacular  

MOULIN ROUGE

Enter a world of splendour, glitz & grandeur and experience the spectacular with a Moulin Rouge themed event. This French cabaret is making a return and quickly becoming one of our most popular themes for 2022, most likely because of the new musical now on stage in the west end.

Moulin Rouge is an extravagance of style taking influence from the Baroque era making it a fun theme to work with in which you can play around with overly ornate, bizarre & European aesthetics. To create the authentic atmosphere of the Parisian cabaret, use luxurious drapes in abundance around your venue to create a dramatic and elaborate setting including cabaret drapes, red velvet drapes and star cloth, all of which are a perfect choice for a stage backdrop too. Illuminate your stage set with our light up ‘Moulin Rouge’ sign– a must have for any Moulin Rouge themed event.

Enhance the iconic Moulin Rouge concept by incorporating the signature windmill and Eiffel tower prop into your event décor and stage set.

Bring a little bit of Paris to your venue with iconic Parisian backdrops of the Eiffel tower and quaint street scenes. Continue the theme throughout the room with cabaret-style tables featuring opulent table centres.

What better way to feel all decadent than to relax with a cocktail or pose for a photo on a chaise lounge?

Transport guests to a far away land full of vibrant colour and culture

ARABIAN NIGHTS

Transport guests to a far away land full of vibrant colour and culture and immerse them with Moroccan fabrics, luxury draping and fine furniture as they party in their very own, authentic Bedouin Tent. 

Recreate the perfect ambient Arabian nights atmosphere with Bedouin style draping and lighting. Hang wall and ceiling drapes in bold shades of pink, purple, orange, yellow and red to transform your venue into a room of beauty and wonder. Highlight these drapes with soft warm uplighters and a mixture of Moroccan lanterns with LED candles.

Our middle eastern inspired furniture such as our low-level benches and mosaic coffee tables are the perfect choice for lounge furniture, pair these up with our cushions, rugs and pouffes for an authentic Arabian chill-out area.

The mysterious worlds of Morocco and Marrakesh are where enchanted palaces meet exotic animals so hire our camel or elephant animal props to really wow your guests.

Moroccan screens are ideal for separating areas of your event or simply adding a genuine Moroccan feel to the room.

Trees & foliage such as our kentia palms & bougainvillea trees are a great finishing touch to soften the venue space and create a Moroccan oasis.

We’ll take you down the murky, cobbled streets of Birmingham
into the underworld of the Peaky Blinders

PEAKY BLINDERS

The 1920s and 30s were an iconic age thanks to art deco architecture, flappers, bootleggers, flat caps & jazz music, all made popular by the much-loved tv series the Peaky Blinders. With the return of the final series coming in February, we predict this will no doubt be a favourite theme for events in 2022.

This particular 1920s event theme moves away from the glamour of The Great Gatsby and takes you down the murky, cobbled streets of Birmingham into the underworld of the Peaky Blinders. We’re talking an industrial backdrop with a dark, edgy feel. Taking inspiration from locations like the Charlie Strong scrap yard and the Garrison pub. Cargo crates, apple crates, brick backdrops and black street lamps are all great props for creating set pieces or a backdrop, whilst black oil drums, oak barrels and tolix stools are the perfect furniture choice.

Once Tommy became as ‘legit’ as he could in series three, he and Grace moved themselves into an incredible country house, giving way to a slightly more lavish lifestyle. There’s still a certain grittiness mixed in with the glitz and charm so to achieve this look, hire our chesterfield sofas and traditional furniture range including chest coffee tables. Enhance the theme with our vintage props such as a grandfather clock, gramophone and typewriter. Kentia palms and our floor standing tiffany lamp will really help set the scene too.

Go on an adventure to far away lands

VINTAGE AROUND THE WORLD

Take inspiration from Phileas Foggs around the world in 80 days and go on an adventure to far away lands. This exciting escapade is based in the Victorian-era so our vintage props such as suitcases, vintage globe, typewriter and chesterfield sofas, are the perfect additions to set the scene.

Encounter many of the places that Phileas Fogg and his companion Passepartout travelled through on their epic circumnavigation of the globe. From the Himalayan heights to the tropical rain forests of India, the quaint streets of Paris to the bustling markets in Hong Kong and the Wild West of America. We stock props for all of these countries and cultures, even the Eiffel tower! 

Create a stunning focal point at your event with an impressive ceiling installation of mini hot air balloons & festoon lights. We’ve even built a bespoke hot air balloon basket with hundreds of helium balloons as a photo opportunity backdrop for an event before!
