Creative Themeing

Expert event consultants Apollo are renowned in the industry for organising some of the most breath-taking and amazing themed parties in the UK. Rather than sticking to the same old ideas, Apollo’s Managing Director Tim Hanbury encourages people to be brave when choosing a theme and with 15 years in the party planning business – Tim loves a challenge!

Our recent Apollo parties include a Rococo themed 50th birthday, a Russian 18th, a Hockney themed 50th, an Artist party and a tropical themed party for 200 guests in Hampshire” explains Tim proudly.

Themed parties are going to be big this autumn/winter but think outside the box – how about a summer themed party at Christmas? Or Christmas on a desert island?! Heating in marquees is so good now, you can use them all year round” he suggests.

My advice when theming is make sure that both the organiser and the client are clear on how they see the theme. Spend your budget on eye-catching pieces – the bar, the nightclub area, table centres, etc. and don’t be afraid to go BIG with a theme running though all elements of the party including the food, decor, dance floor, even the waiting staff!

We always tell clients that a memorable party doesn’t have to be on-trend. It just needs to stand out and be unique!”
