& Looking for Inspiration?

A typical stumbling block for any event planner is the client who doesn’t know what they want. “Just give me ideas!” “It HAS to be spectacular” and “I want something that has never been done before”. All nightmare phrases said by clients who are unsure of what direction to take. They are looking to you, the event organiser to bring the ideas. When you are juggling ten different clients and running a 20-hour day, ideas don’t always flow. This Event Art Guide is THE solution. We have an ever-changing range of event concepts that keep up to date with the latest trends.

When presented with a brief with a well-worn theme, it’s a temptation to go with what you know and choose traditional props. We have all be on events featuring large-scale fibre glass props with shabby paintwork have been the key feature. A let down feature that far from excites guests.

Old Fashioned Props are Tacky and don’t Deliver enough WOW.

It’s not just the old fashion styling of these props that’s a real event killer. The installation of these past-it props is simply painful. Not only are they a time sucker for the crew, they are also difficult to reposition should you want to alter the room at the last minute.

Finally, they are expensive. There I said it. A single prop can cost you thousands, stripping you of budget that can be used effectively elsewhere. Simply put, old school props are a thing of the past that need relegating to the event history books.

Our latest release from the studio is a ‘Around the World’ theme with a Steampunk/ Circus styling twist. A charming combination of Victorian Circus styling with steampunk industrial styling.

Event Styling: Around the World

Hop on board with the man himself, Phileas Fogg is ready to take you across the Globe. Around the World Styling:


Time travel back to the year 1879 and join Phileas Fogg the British explorer on his balloon trip around the word within 80 days. With a combination of inflatable, flat pack-able props and battery powered, lit table centres. Your guests will take a journey among some of the marvels that explorers discovered during the reign of Queen Victoria. Realist 3m tall Circus elephants will tower over your guests and can be heard trumpeting as guest arrive for their travel adventure. A hot air balloon hangs silently in the air above the dance floor. Every table has a beautiful lit Victorian style table centre giving a warm glow. Oak barrel poster tables are dressed with parchment maps and more antique looking centres to extend the theme further into the bar areas.

Now things get FUN!

With your chosen theme, we put together a selection of packages for your consideration. We take your budget and venue into careful consideration and put forward three packages. In short, you get a below budget, on budget and above budget. A simple formula that easily presented to your client. It shows your client your ability to deliver a brief in lightning quick time.

Before and After Transformation:

Everything Arrives Flat Packed.

Making assembly and installation completely hassle free.

At the heart of everything we do is logistics. The set up and derig of any event is always a chaotic one. Rooms flooded with suppliers all over, fighting for space. MD Gary became keenly aware of this when he started the business. He didn’t want the company to be one of the pack, he wanted Table Art/ Event Art to stand out for its efficiency and professionalism.

The solution is simple. Firstly, to make everything flat-packable. Secondly to store and transport everything in flight cases. When you book us, you won’t see the usual rag tag bunch of crew bringing in scraggy cardboard boxes and cleaning products on site. What you get with Table Art is a smartly dressed team that roll in branded uniform grey cases. Every product carefully designed for easy install/derig. We will deliver your vision within an hour of arrival, every time.

Creating an Unforgettable Visual Display

Innovative styling solutions:

  • Printed Panels
  • Furniture
  • Inflatable Props
  • Variety of Audio Effects.

Inflatable Props

Looking at some of these pictures, it seems impossible to imagine how it would all fit into a single van. That is the magic of Event Art. We utilise inflatable technology and design to make large scale props that can be transported at a fraction of the size. Do you know what we hear commonly on event… “no way is that an inflatable!”. Yes way! Our design studio work with a variety of craftspeople to make sure that every prop has a high-end quality finish. These inflatables are great focal point to an event and always ‘pop’ on social media.

Printed Panels

The printed panels we offer are always a key choice for any Event Art package. They provide an impactful backdrop to an event. We stock over 250 individual prints; we can say with confidence that there is no theme we cannot capture with these panels.

Our range of furniture utilises the same DMX technology with use with our centrepieces. Being able to pair both the furniture and tables makes for a striking choice of lighting effects. A popular effect is to section off key areas by colour. A drinks reception set in cold blue hues to a dining room given a warm red glow.

Finally, the sound scape effects. Event Art uses SONOS tech to bring a full surround sound experience. Ideal for those looking to create e a truly immersive experience. Draw in guests with a jungle sound scape or a space invader retro special. Whatever suits your theme best.

The Big Event

Once everything is set up, our team will liaise directly with you to make sure you are happy with every detail. Want to move a prop last minute? No problem. Our guys stay on site until guests arrive. You can rely on us to help with the pickiest of clients.

The event having been a screaming success, it’s now down to the pack down. If you are the poor event planner still on site, you are about to be blown away. Event Art will be flashing across the room, packing everything back into the flight cases. We are almost always the first suppliers to complete derig and be out. One less supplier to worry about. One less supplier to jimmy along so the hotel can close its doors.


All done and dusted? Not quite. The following day you will get a quick thank you email from our team that includes a range of pictures taken on the event. Always nice to get a memento of an event, our images have always proved useful for event planners to use on their future proposals.
