Beat the January blues with colourful themed ideas

January is a month that could really do with brightening up! Short days, cold weather and winter clothes make us feel miles away from the fun and colour of summer. Dash of Sparkle are bringing you fun themed ideas to beat the January blues and inspire your next event. The ideal theme for transforming a blank canvas venue, colour can be added to every aspect of your décor. From pastels to rainbow shades, there’s no limit to the colours you can use. Depending on your taste, a colourful theme can be made up of traditional colourful balloons, banners and centrepieces, or you can incorporate LED lighting around the room and as part of your entertainment or food stations. Sweet stations and food carts are a really popular choice at events. Not only do they add a fun, interactive element for your guests – they look cool too! Usually decorated in bright colours, adding an LED element makes them stand out, especially for evening parties. You can choose from popcorn, candyfloss or sweet carts – not forgetting a chocolate fountain! When it comes to centrepieces, taking inspiration from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is a great start. Combining multi-coloured balloons, ribbons and shiny material is a way to incorporate elements of your favourite themes without going all-out. If you’re having a dinner dance, your guests will spend a lot of time sitting at their tables. Decorating them beautifully with multi-coloured confetti …

Ideas for a freakishly fun Halloween party!

Halloween was originally a festival of both celebration and superstition, where people would light bonfires and dress up in costumes to ward off ghosts. Now, it’s all about trick-or-treating, who can wear the scariest outfit and of course, lots of sweet treats! Considering Halloween falls between Autumn and Winter, taking your kids trick-or-treating in the freezing cold probably isn’t the most appealing thought! So, why not stay in this year and organise a freakishly fun party at home? At Dash of Sparkle, we love nothing more than a themed party, and we want to give you some great ideas to create your own décor, food and entertainment. For your décor, make sure you’ve got lots of props on hand to work with – large fake spiders, ghostly lanterns, fairy lights, candles and cob webs. A great way to create a spooky atmosphere is to have your party in the evening, turn all the lights off and just have candlelight/fairy lights around the room. Once the scary scene is set, you can go crazy draping the ceilings with all the scary stuff you’ve got your hands on! It always looks great to position your lighting just above the props so they stand out, just like these green lanterns. If you can get hold of creepy silhouette posters, stick them around the room or on the windows to create a realistic scene from a horror film. No Halloween is complete without pumpkins …

How to have a fun and fabulous Hawaiian Party

Imagine bringing a bit of Hawaiian magic to the UK. From palm trees to colourful floral leis and coconuts, wouldn’t that just be the most fun setting for your special birthday, Bar/Batmitzvah, prom or romantic wedding. A Hawaiian theme is one of our favourites at Dash of Sparkle – our team have so much fun transforming a venue from a blank canvas into a bright, inviting room for the guest of honour and the guests to enjoy. A theme isn’t just about pretty decorations, it’s about creating an experience that screams Hawaiian from start to finish. It’s definitely preferable for summer events when the weather is likely to be warmer, but not essential. Whether you enjoy welcome drinks in the sun or cosied up inside, we’ll bring Hawaii to you!
