If you’re planning an event with live music or want to get guests out of their seats, then a music theme for your event is the perfect way to add spark to your night. Most genres of music come with their own style, atmosphere, and costumes from which you can take inspiration

We’ve made a list of 15 fantastic music themes for events that will push your creative talents and create a unique night that people will remember. 

We work with our clients to select the best music themes for their events. Take a look at some of our recent events. 

Here are our top 15 music themes for events for which we can provide décor, props and table centres. 

Ibiza is the holy land for partygoers, which makes it a perfect style for your music theme event. It can give an audacious twist on a typical club-style event or beach-themed party. As well as giving you great music options, the Ibiza theme allows you to go overboard with lasers and lighting while allowing guests to relax completely. 

Take a look at our Ibiza décor packages and select your perfect table centres and props to make your event extra special. Use our inflatable entrance tunnel and light up the stools and tables for a full Ibiza experience. 


Do you want an atmosphere that says big hair, spandex, and harsh coloured lighting inspired by musicians such as David Bowie and Alice Cooper? That’s exactly what you get with a glam rock party. This is a good music theme if you want to use fog machines and intense lighting arrangements. 

If you’re planning an event with a Glam Rock theme, why not use our electric guitar table centres too? These are perfect for any music-themed event, but they work perfectly with DMX lighting for Glam Rock!

Flapper-style parties from the 20s have become infamous worldwide and immortalised in novels such as The Great Gatsby. The opulent, art deco style the era has become associated with has made it a perfect choice for ambitious designers, and it’s a great opportunity if you want jazz or big band music to play.

Use our 1920s-style table lamps and art deco-style screens to make this music event theme idea come to life. Build your package here


A back-to-school theme makes for a playful event and is a great music theme for your event. Taking a trip down memory lane can really get guests involved – especially when it comes to the music you choose. You could even do it in the style of a school disco or go for a total transformation into a classroom with chalkboards, wooden desks, and decorations from your school years.

Mod is a fashion-conscious subculture that began in the late 50s and continues today. It captures the excitement of the swinging 60s in London, along with a passion for mopeds and parka coats. You can base your colour scheme on their famous red, white, and blue colour scheme, select your music from the late 50s and 60s to get your guests on their feet and decorate your venue with props from the 60s.

We have a huge selection of props and table centres for you to choose from for a Mods-themed event, from Rubik’s cube table centres to psychedelic-coloured light stools and DMX lighting effects

Many events feature a ballroom or formal dancing, but a ballroom-themed event celebrates the grandiosity of the Ballroom. This is more of a dance than a music theme; however, if you want to inspire awe in guests with elegant chandeliers, regal colouring, and Renaissance-inspired decorations, this is the perfect theme for you.

For Ballroom theme events, our mirror ball table centres look great and provide a further aspect of glitz and glamour to compliment the fabulous ballgowns your guests will be adorning.

The life of a biker carries a strange romanticism with it; it’s ripe material for a themed event. You can draw inspiration from terrifying tattoos, rock shows, classic American dive bars, and central motorcycles and motorcycle paraphernalia.

Get your guests on their feet with rock music, which will go well with our guitar table centrepieces

A disco event is the perfect music event theme for the end-of-year celebrations, and you can decorate it with the funkiest adornments we can provide. This will give you an excuse to use wild light displays, lasers, and disco globes of all sizes.

Use our disco screens, DMX lighting, neon tables/stools, mirror ball props, and table centres to give this music theme everything it needs to get your guests dancing the night away! 


A heavy metal-themed event celebrated big hair and prominent personalities. This is an excellent way to go if you’re looking to create a lively atmosphere. Your design should use flames, industrial colours, and a dark, foggy atmosphere.

Vaudeville is the name for the variety of shows put on around the USA in the early 20th century before the advent of cinema. As a theme for an event, you can draw on early circus designs, burlesque, and 1920s culture. It’s an excellent theme choice if you are staging your own variety of entertainment for guests.

Take a look at our circus-themed props that will complement this theme perfectly. This music theme will make your event unforgettable. 

There is a lot of iconography surrounding the world of rock ‘n’ roll, and it’s an excellent theme for events with live music or a lot of energy. Guitars, drums, and other musical instruments should find their way into your design, and you can recreate the excitement of a rock concert for your guests.

This is yet another excellent music theme for our electric guitar centrepieces – and why not also incorporate our music notes and piano table centres for a bit of added variety?

The Goth subculture isn’t always associated with cheeriness, but as a theme, it can make for a captivating and fun event. A gothic theme uses macabre decorations such as skeletons or witches, but it’s not a haunted house. You want to use black interspersed with bright reds and purples as your colour scheme.

If you’re going for a goth music theme and want to decorate your venue to follow suit, you might want to look at some of our Halloween décor

Mardis Gras celebrations are some of the most fabulous parties and festivals held each year. The music provides ample inspiration for a themed party so that you won’t be short of ideas. You might want to use a green and purple colour scheme, plenty of beads, masks, and wild costumes. Take a look at our coloured bunting, which will be perfect for a Mardi Gras theme!

1967 in San Francisco was known as the summer of love as hippies worldwide gathered to celebrate unity and togetherness. Remember to make great use of love hearts, peace symbols, flowing drapes, and lots of tie-dye colours.

We have a huge selection of balloon arches and décor, which we would always recommend for a summery-themed event. Blast the summer tunes, and you have a music theme to enjoy.

The 90s is a good decade on which to base an event’s design. Using 90s hip-hop as your central inspiration gives you lots of room to be creative. Think of lots of candy colours, strange squiggly lines, colour blocking, and plenty of gold chains.


Just because you’ve chosen a certain musical genre as a theme for an event, that doesn’t mean you have to only play music from that genre. A rock ‘n’ roll band can do well at a roaring 20s party. A bubblegum pop music theme can make for an exciting contrast at a goth theme party. 

At Table Art, we can not only help you style your event but also design specially lit centrepieces that enhance any music that is playing. Contact us for a consultation today.
