Make Your Special Night Stand Out with Unique Event Dressing.
As an event dressing company, one of our favourite occasions to design a scheme for are Bat Mitzvah’s and Bar Mitzvah’s – the traditional Jewish celebration of a person’s transition from childhood to adulthood. Why do we love them so much? Well, they are often the first occasion where a person has the chance to have a bit of creative input into their celebration, and as it is such a joyous occasion the more unique the idea, the better! Having a themed Bar Mitzvah or Bat Mitzvah is a great way to ensure you end up with a truly memorable event that really reflects the personality of the person being celebrated, and so we have gathered together some ideas to help inspire you to create a magical event:
An event dressing theme that we have seen being used more and more recently is Arabian nights. This theme is heavily influenced by the colours and textures of Morrocco, so think lots of red and gold with luxurious touches. Arabian themes borrow heavily from the tales of ‘Aladdin’ and ‘Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves’ so think drapes, curtains and lots of lanterns. To strike the right balance between colourful and relaxed think about creating a relaxed seating area with lots of large cushions and silver lanterns. In fact the more lanterns, the better! You could also add some fire-pits for a bit of a wow factor too. Why not get the guests in the party mood by hiring some belly dancers for a touch of glamour and sparkle, especially if you pair them with a person playing hand drums. If you are feeling really brave, you could hire a tarot reader to reveal people’s fortunes – all in the name of fun after all!
Candy Pop Party
If the guest of honour is a sweet lover, then how about a bright and bold candy pop party? Really grab your guest attention on the way in with a large candy buffet and vintage candy cart, featuring a wide selection of sweets, from retro to jellies & fizzies. Our candy buffets alo include candy scoops and bags in colours to match your event. Dial up the colour scheme with red, purple, pink, orange or yellow tablecloths and chair sashes and add some decorative balloons to really add some wow factor. You can really make a feature of your Bar Mitzvah or Bat Mitzvah tables by adding a huge jar of sweets into the middle of them, or why not vases sprouting fountains of brightly coloured ostrich feathers for a really eye-catching touch?
Night Club Theme
This is quite a popular theme as it allows the guest of honour and their friends to experience the thrill of a nightclub, despite not being old enough to enjoy the real thing! The great thing about having your own nightclub for the night is that you can add your own personal touches to the area. First things first is a great dancefloor with space for people to throw some shapes to the latest floor fillers on. You should also think about adding a bar, serving ‘mocktails’ and soft drinks of course and maybe some cute cocktail tables with a sequin or lace tablecloth and a lantern or crystal centrepiece. Having a chillout area might be a good idea as well, so place some comfy sofas and stools around and don’t forget to add some side tables, so people have somewhere to place their drinks.
Lighting is everything when it comes to creating a believable nightclub scene, and we have some fantastic lighting to hire that can really add a special touch to any event. Coloured uplighters can add a splash of colour to any venue, and you can also add a starlight backdrop and some illuminated letters for a really cool look. The thing that will really make or break your event though is the music, so you need to make sure you source a DJ with the energy and personality to get everyone up on the dance floor. To really make sure the night goes swingingly, why not get the guest of honour to put together a playlist on Spotify, which you can then pass on to the DJ who should then incorporate their choices into their playlist of music for the evening.
Create a magical another worldly feel with starlight backdrops, decorative trees and tall candelabras. Decorate some of your tables with sequin tablecloths and others with sequin runners for a beautiful sparkling effect, and dot some lanterns around to give a ‘walking through the forest at night’ feel. Why not tie some green sashes around the chairs as well to add to the woodland feel?
