Party String CurtainYou are planning for a party and there’s a lot to do— decluttering and cleaning the house, the food and the drinks, the arrangement and the décor. As long as the party is successful, who cares about the entrance, right?


Imagine this: It’s your parent’s 30th anniversary and you and your siblings decided to throw them a secret party. You surprise your parents with a lunch date and tickets to an afternoon concert. As they leave the house, you start planning. You call all the guests and tell them to arrive on time so that everyone can sneak up on your parents and surprise them. When the guests arrive, they start looking around the house, confused until you lead them into the living room. After the fifth guest arrives and you see the same reaction on his face, you ask if there’s something wrong. The guest simply says, “Where’s the party?” And that’s when it dawns on you that the house doesn’t exactly look festive for the occasion.

Our point being — it’s important to have a striking entrance for your party no matter what the occasion is. The entrance has a huge impact on the guests and it sets the right tone. You need to wow your guests even before they have entered the room!

Following are five unique entrance décor ideas that will make a great first impression:

1. Memory Cut-Outs

Party Theme: Walking Down Memory Lane

Picture frames are all well and good for memories, but on a special occasion, such as an anniversary, why not create life-size memories? It’s time to bring out the old albums and find pictures of your parents when they were young. Create a timeline of 10 years, starting from when they first started dating.

Get these pictures printed on life-size boards and then create cut-outs. Starting from the entryway, place the cut-outs according to the timeline. Make sure to place the last one in front of the backdrop, behind the table. You can even join the cut-outs with fairy lights.

Add Party Art lit table centres to this for a spectacular effect.

Party Theme: A Magical Night

Does your house entrance lead to a long corridor? Then this entrance décor will blow your guests away. This décor idea is so cool that even you will be amazed by how easily it can be executed. You only need two items to create this entrance: jet-black velvet cloth and yellow, mini LED lights.

Cover the walls and the ceiling with the black velvet cloth. Make sure that the cloth doesn’t sag in any area. Dim the outside lights as this will keep the entrance in a silhouette. Once the cloth has been nailed to the walls, you can attach the mini LED lights on the cloth haphazardly to create a starry look.

When the guests start arriving, make sure to dim the outside lights at the end of the tunnel. This way, they will feel like they are walking underneath a starlit sky.

Party Theme: Gatsby

“The Great Gatsby” showed us how true elegance and opulence looks like. One could actually feel the lavishness with which the parties were decorated. Sparkling Champagne glasses, plush feathers, the VIP roped entrance and the black and gold décor… there are not enough words to describe how beautiful this theme is.

So, here’s what we think will allow you to create a Gatsby themed entrance: crystal curtains, gold coloured garlands, props, masquerade masks and a chalk board with the  guest of honour’s name on it.

Hang the crystal curtain at the entrance and use gold coloured garlands to cover the walls. At the mouth of the corridor, place the chalkboard on the right side, near the coat hanger rack, so that guests can admire the hand-written beauty. As for the props and masks, place them on a mesh display stand so that people can pick one on their own and then enter the party.

Party Art’s range of lit table centres will compliment this perfectly.

Party Theme: The Hippie Vibe

Creating an entrance with drapes is all about colours and lights. This hippie theme décor is pretty easy to achieve. All you need is long strips of coloured cloth and fairy lights. Now, to make the entrance look grand, you will have to mix-match with a lot of knick-knacks.

First, hang the drapes in a tent-style and then curve the fairly lights down the length. You can use plenty of props to spruce up the entrance such as fresh flower garlands, potted ferns, lanterns and the pièce de résistance — a guitar.

Party Art’s musical lit table centres are perfect for this.

Party Theme: Shimmer and Shine

Who doesn’t love bling and tassels? Put them together, and you can create a fairy land! If you don’t want to decorate the entrance with helium balloons, which is usually what most people go for, then we have the perfect décor idea for you.

This shimmer-and-shine theme focuses on tassels and tassels alone. They are the start of your entrance and the party. All you need is shiny, satin finish tissue paper in gold and another colour of your choice. Cut them in strips and make small, finger-length tassels. Then attach them on a string and hang them from the ceiling. It will take a lot of time to create these tassels because you want to cover the entire entrance with them. As for the walls, hang sparkling fringe curtains on both sides.

And there you have it — a beautiful and shiny entrance that will make the guests feel like they are walking through a fairy land. Added to Party Art’s lit table centres your party will make a big impression.

Mysterious, glamorous and super exciting, a masquerade ball is a big party with tons of luxurious décor, fancy outfits and a sense of nostalgia.

As one of the most iconic events from the old European era, a masquerade ball can have any theme you want. Make it a night of mystery, thriller, fantasy – and tons of fun – by picking out the right theme for the party.

Whether it’s New Year’s Eve, a birthday or a summer party, here are some cool masquerade ball themes you’re going to love playing with!


A Medieval/Renaissance Theme

Looking to turn back the clock and have fun while you’re at it? This theme is bound to bring all the old souls together!

The Costumes:You and your guests can choose from embellished velvet gowns, gypsy costumes or comfortable “peasant” wear. Guests can also dress up as noblemen, musketeers, crusaders and even court jesters or knights!

The Décor: Decorate the walls with tapestries, fake swords, and other decorations. You could even arrange some LED table centres or put up some cool statues to add some personality to the décor. You can even deck the venue with some stunning lamps for sensual lighting. It looks great around the dance floor, setting a romantic and dreamy ambiance for dancing.

The Food: The Medieval and Renaissance eras were all about rich cheese, meats, tons of fruit and a lot of wine!

The Music: Pick out a selection of the old and gold orchestras. Or ask your Dj to bring some medieval covers to play at the party! They’re great as background music and also fun to dance to!

A Victorian Theme

Masquerade parties and balls were inventedmostly in this era. This theme is for those who prefer Shakespeare over modern day fiction and love the romantic flair of the Victorian Era.

The Costumes:The Victorian era was all about style, elegance and delicacy. Choose elegant ball gowns, tons of jewellery, jewelled hair clips and walking canes. Include a hand mask with each of your invites and request your guests to bring one too. In fact, you can host a booth at the party where guests can jazz up simple masks into stunning pieces!

The Décor: Use colour themes that are subtle like ivory, soft rose and even rich burgundies and reds. Add roses, lilies and charming candlesticks and holders on your tables. Lit table centres will also make your event the star-studded event it should be! Add a romantic touch to your décor with this gorgeous Blossom Tree!

The Food: Go for dainty, elegant cuisine. Using china dishes and platters, serve simple pastries, light desserts, crackers and cheese. You can even go all out and set up a chocolate fountain or cheese fondue, too!


The Music:The Victorian era loved its music! Hire a string quartet or rummage through some old classical music vinyls. These are great for background music and to set the mood of the party.

A Winter Wonderland

Fantastical, magical and sophisticated. A winter wonderland is a beautiful theme for a masquerade ball. Reminiscent of the dewy snow that winter brings, this theme is a mix of the modern and the fantastical!

The Costumes:Think ice! You and your guests can wear shades of white and blues, with pearl jewellery or diamond droplets. Sheer gowns and white shirts will make wonderful costumes for a night of magic. Oh, and don’t forget the masks – think ice queen and king!

The Décor:Using cool winter-esquecolour schemes, decorate the venue by creating a mound of faux snow. Adorn the tables with shiny silver runners and stunning candelabras! You can also suspend decadent lighting from the ceiling for a surreal look. Add a touch of modern architecture by including string curtains, too!

The Food:Serve cold meats, sandwiches, chilled salads and an assortment of chocolate! You could switch things up and use white chocolate for the chocolate fountain! All of this can be arranged around lit table centres for an ethereal look.

The Music: Ask your DJ to bring music that’ll breathe life into the party! Look for music ranging from the late ‘90s to the early ‘00s!

A Futuristic Theme

Exciting, inspiring and so much fun, a futuristic theme is a great spin on old masquerade ball themes. Taking inspiration from new technology, modern life and a quick paced world, this is one of the coolest masquerade party themes!

The Costumes: Go creative! Take inspiration from Kanye’s YEEZY collection or metallic clothes and accessories! Paired with a dark, mechanical theme, grunge fashion look great. You and your guests can also take liberties with your masks. Make them as creative as they want – think robots and AI!

The Décor: Think mechanical and modern. Check out this super cool Space Display and these super quirky suspended airships. You can also check out other inflatables, too! Check out glow-in-the-dark props, lit table centres and LED table centres for a truly futuristic event.


The Food:Go for deconstructed foods! Cheesecake, burgers, and small servings of chilled pasta salads are a popular choice. Even desserts served in metallic cutlery look cool! Serve funky cocktails in cool crystal glasses, too!

The Music: Bring out Daft Punk’s Robot Rock if you’re into the early ‘00s. Or take a pick from the cool Boiler Room and Cercle sets to really get the vibe going!

No party’s complete without some comfortable sitting furniture. Whether it’s a grand dinner hosted for over 200 guests or a small disco themed party, it’s important to deck out some comfortable sitting places!

To make it exciting, eschew the ordinary garden chairs and wrought iron settees. Creativity is half of the fun of hosting an event. And with many options to choose from, you’ll have great party décor that your guests are going to love!

Think Geometric

Adding geometry to your event décor makes the event look super cool and edgy. Cool statement furniture pieces or props are great at drawing attention. Not only that, but they can also brighten a really dull place with a splash of colour.

Check out this cool Sofa Cube! It’s under lit with LED lights, and really sets the mood. It’s especially great if you’re looking for simple yet bold décor for your event. Not only will it make a statement, but it’s also comfortable!

Lit furniture can also be controlled to display an array of light effects. The innovative pieces can complement any theme and light up even the dullest of events. Next time you host an event, look at lighting from another angle!

Choose Minimalism

Minimalism always looks great, especially when it’s crisp white, subtly lit up and elegant like the Poseur Table. Controlled with the latest DMX technology and available in a range of effects, the lit table brings any formal event to life with its softness and subtlety.

Especially great for placing delicate centrepieces like LED table centres or even bowls of bar food, furniture like this is definitely worth it. It adds a touch of class to your event while keeping it exciting. Such tables are especially great for large business events!

Add a Touch of Nature

Adding a touch of nature is always a great idea. Adding lit centrepieces to your party’s tables in the shape of a moon or even an animal is always welcome. In fact, it brings creativity and a touch of colour to your event’s overall décor!

Whether you’re hosting a formal event or a themed one, LED table centres or lit centrepieces are a great way to excite your guests. Not only do they look great, but they also accent the mood and look great for pictures!

Let’s Not Forget About Ice

Ice makes for one of the coolest props. Especially used as table centres and accentuated with LED lights, it’s a sight to see. Elegant, cool and very simplistic, lit centrepieces made of ice are a great option for any event.

If you’re hosting a safari themed event, you’re going to love this Lion Ice Sculpture – it really does pack a roar! Or you could personalize an Ice Star with the birthday girl’s age or place a dynamic Ice Cube which melts throughout the night to reveal what’s hidden inside! If you’re really looking to impress, check out this stunning lit table centre hire in the Ice Melt.

Go Big – And Creative!

If you’re looking to host an event that’s packed with wonder and excitement, you might want to check out large décor pieces. In case you’re wondering what we mean, imagine large props with tons of dramatic flair.

Check out these uber colourful Russian Domes that suspend from the roof and come in various sizes. Or add a touch of awe with a Dream Circus Grey Elephant that can be used as a standalone prop, too! And if you’re all about colour, liveliness and celebration, these larger than life Buntings ought to do the trick! Adding a large prop ought to make your event Insta famous!

Don’t Forget About the Entrance

Don’t forget to greet the guests with style and oomph! Forget the usual canopy of flowers and balloons; events nowadays call for bigger and better welcomes.

Ideal for branding events or even luxury parties, this pristine white LED tunnel is an even better precursor to those stunning LED table centrepieces you’ve got inside. Or you can pick out this eccentric Spaceship Tunnel to really get your guests in the mood for the event! Either way, with statement pieces like these, your event’s going to be a big hit!

Add a Stunning Bar

The bar is one of the main go-to places at any event. As it is a hub for refreshments, drinks and small munchies, it deserves attention, too. Drinks don’t have to be boring at all – in fact, served right out of a cool bar, they can become more exciting!

Check out this super cool Ice Bar Front that’s reminiscent of the Icebar in London. Or serve your cool cocktails under this stunning Asian Parasol – a whole section for drinks, imagine! Or you could pick through any themes that will really transform your party! And don’t forget to pick up some cool lit centrepieces to embellish the bar with!

Summer is here, and it’s time to plan a great summer party! However, a great party shouldn’t leave you bankrupt. In fact, there are great ways to plan a party on a budget. From music and food to décor, there are tons of options to explore!

It’s time to throw the greatest summer bash – and here are some amazing décor ideas!

Plan Your Party In Advance

Planning is key to throwing a grand event.

Before hosting your summer bash, make sure you have everything organized. This includes the guest list, the venue,catering and even small details.

Planning in advance can save you tons of money when the party draws near. By organizing beforehand, you’ll have your affairs in order to host a great event while staying within budget! Speak to your event manager, caterers or decorators beforehand. Decide on a theme and how you’d like to follow it. Placing bookings much earlier can save you tons on the venue, and even help you stay on top of the last-minute troubles.

Now who doesn’t want that?

It’s also important to keep in mind whether your guests will need parking space or validation. If your party is happening away from home, in a farmhouse or village, plan accordingly. Some guests may need a place to stay the night before going back.

The Decor

Décor is one of the most important factors. Not only does it create a vibe, but it also transforms your space into something amazing! With great advice fromTable Art (UK) andParty Art, you’re all set.

Go Eccentric!

Eccentric party décor is one of the coolest ways to express style.

Check out an inflatable globe to hang over the ceiling. It’s illustrated with mystical compasses, sea creatures and transforms the ceiling into a world of its own!

You can even get a super cool prop that spits smoke and adds excitement to the scene. Thanks to this Time Machine, your guests will really enjoy themselves!

Part Art Table centerpieces for partyThere are so many options to choose from when it comes to table décor. Your guests will spend a lot of time there resting, eating and socializing. So adorn your party’s tables with breathtaking décor!

However, at the end of the party, don’t forget to account for the table centres if you’ve rented or hired them!

The Venue

Depending on how many people you’re hoping to host, it’s essential to get creative with the venue. You could host a great party with tons of booze and food, but your guests won’t have a good time if they’re cramped in a small loft.

Pick an Open Space

The best way to enjoy summer is outdoors! Pick a big lawn or plan a party in your backyard. Nature will play the second host to your guest.

Or if you’re feeling adventurous, plan a small getaway at a farm or a small village. The nice air, change of scenery and local food will add to the enjoyment.

Make Sure It Suits Your Guests!

If you’re throwing a gathering with a mix of different ages, make sure your venue is adequately spaced.

You don’t want the young ones getting bored, and you don’t want the older guests feeling tired!

The Food/Catering

And let’s not forget the other important detail: Food!

Depending on your guests or your theme, serve the appropriate food. Although for summer, chilled sangrias, fresh fruit, light sandwiches and pastries ought to keep your guests full!

However, if you’re planning a big fiesta which serves dinner, check out some cool summery recipes. Or speak to your caterer about a customized food and bar menu.


Plan For Emergencies

Always have a backup plan for emergencies. Some guests may get sick or hurt themselves while dancing. Always keep a first aid kit close by to tend to such situations.

Make sure some friends volunteer to be designated drivers, too. That way, your guests can return home safely and with a guaranteed ride home.

Most important things to remember when planning a private party in a village hall


With the task of running a party in a local small or village hall seeming like a straight forward thing we have produced  a blog with some of the problems to watch out for. It is so important from that moment when guest first arrive to be as good as you can possibly make it. A lack of atmosphere that can feel really awkward can have everyone planning their excuses to leave before they have even sat down or had their first drink. Sound too loud to talk or lighting so bright that it feels like there are no dark areas to tuck yourself away into, can kill things off before they even start.

Make sure that the venue has enough parking for the amount of guests that you are expecting. Try to make sure that the walk from the car park isn’t too far from the front door and over a hard surface that isn’t going to turn to mud as soon as it rains.

Check that it has heating and that someone is going to be around to open the venue for your event and they know how to operate and unlock everything.

Make sure that the operating times fit with what you are looking for. No good trying to do a 30th birthday when the licence is only util 10pm.

Check out your entertainment in advance, read reviews and see if there is a possibility of seeing them perform in advance of your event leaving enough time to book someone else if you don’t think they are suitable.

Check the venue lighting after dark. Depending on the time of year bear in mind sunset times etc you should check out how effective the curtains are for when your guests arrive in the summer. If lighting is fluorescent and on just one switch you would need to turn them off and uplight the room with coloured up lighters to create some atmosphere.


Check that arrival background music is going to be played, either by the band or DJ or through the house sound system if suitable. Try the sound system in advance and bear in mind that it will be a lot quieter with people in the venue than when empty. Make sure that if playing music from your own device that you have the right leads and connections to plug in to the system. Really important that the background music is suitable for the guests and played at a volume loud enough to take away that awkward silence but not so loud that guests will go outside to chat.

Try to dress the venue with details that reflect either you personality or style. Just a couple of props or lit images at the entrance or on stage can make all the difference to a room that may not look great but with the right lighting can be completely transformed.

Lit LED table centres can be hired that will give a warm low from the centre of the dining and cocktail tables. The designs can be changed to suit the event and colour can be altered to suit the occasion they even be set on automatic colour change or fade for that even more impact.
