Can you guess the theme of this year’s Graduation ball at Lincoln University….? “Circus!” To transform The Engine Shed at the students union, we used a mix of red, white and gold draping, meters and METERS of bunting and festoon lighting, and plenty of banners. The addition of a Lion and an Elephant […]
Today we had to say good-bye to one of our team members, Heather, as she returned to Portsmouth University to finish her Degree in Fine Art. All is not lost, however, as we hope she will still be working with us in the coming months. We would like to say a HUGE thank you to […]

They required a subtle […]
Simple but effective draping at Beaulieu Motor Museum in the New Forest for their Christmas events. The theme for the Brabazon Cafe was “Ice Palace”.

We are pleased to welcome Iwona as a new member of our growing team. Iwona has 6 years experience in the decorating business and she has already proven to be a great asset! To celebrate we all went to Lime Wood Hotel for afternoon tea. Mmmm! Eight out of ten, we are becoming aficionados of afternoon tea.

They offer the materials to educational institutions and creative individuals to use for […]

A Kabuki Drop is a special effect in which lightweight fabrics are dropped swiftly from above to reveal your product, space or performers.

We installed our stretch fabrics at Essex University for their graduation ball. Essex University always have great nights for their students and look to us to help with the theming, we know how to add that special touch to make the look of an event really unique.
