Top Tips: Top 10 Theming Ideas
February 15 - Kevin

As Mondays can sometimes be a little bit bleak, we at Blank Canvas Entertainment thought we would start a Motivation Monday section on our blog to help make the transition from weekend to work mode a little easier!

As everyone loves a themed party, what better way to start then sharing with you our Top 10 Theming Ideas.

The team here have spent many an event helping our clients to create the ultimate themed experience for their guests. Every aspect of an event can be themed, from jaw dropping entertainment all the way through to drinking straws! No part of an event is too small or too big for that matter, to live, breath and be totally immersed in any chosen theme!

Our Top Ten 

James Bond

Set the scene for a glamorous James Bond themed event with our Casino Table classics, whilst adding that license to thrill factor with our Daniel Craig lookalike, who will be sure to leave your guests shaken and stirred! Why not also throw in a few fast cars by booking our Giant Scalextric too, to add that competitive edge!

Great Gatsby

Channel the ultimate Great Gatsby party experience with our glitz and glam Flapper Dancers and vintage inspired singing duo Verity and Violet. Then, why not transport your guests back in time with our 1920s inspired Pimms and Ice Cream Tricycles – the sweetest addition to any party!

Alice in Wonderland 

No Alice in Wonderland party would be complete without an Alice, and even more so without an Alice Contortionist or Stilt Walker. Combined this with one of our fantastic Bubblelogists and our Incredible Ice Cream Bar, and you’ve got yourself a madhatters tea party!

Roll up! Roll up to one of our Circus themed events and instantly be amazed with our circus entertainers, including hand balancers, contact jugglers, fire shows, as well as an array of fun foods to make sure the party is as circus indulgent as possible!

To make sure a Hollywood party has that red carpet feeling we always look to our paparazzi photographers to give every guest that instant celebrity treatment. And why not bring a few celebrities lookalikes along to the party too? Our Ratpack singer has an incredible Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin voice and is known for his unforgettable live vocal performances. And for such a performance we feel popcorn is a great accompaniment – our popcorn machines and servers add that old-fashioned movie theatre Hollywood vibe.

Winter Wonderland 

Walk instantly into a Winter Wonderland themed event and be met with our Crystal Magician upon arrival and for all of the winter wonderlandee’s on the go demanding a quick shot chose from a wide range of our Vodka Luges and Ice Bars! Through out the evening guests can enjoy our Edible Mist Orbs too –  great new alternative to desserts, which also create a cool and mystical vibe throughout the night!

Midsummer Nights Dream

What could enchant guests more at a Midsummer Nights Dream party than one of our beautiful aerial performers offering breathtaking and romantic performances through out the evening? By accompanying this performance with a harpist to instantly add a touch of elegance and sophistication of course! And for such a party, why not include our entertaining and visually stunning human statues?

Moulin Rouge

There are no laws and no limits when it comes to throwing a Moulin Rouge themed event, so a vibrant extravaganza of thrilling music and exciting dance routines and playful burlesque is a must surely? That’s when we call on our Cabaret Girls who offer the most spectacular and magnifique performances! And to really get a feel for that ‘all singing and all dancing’ performing vibe, The Singing Waiters will add that element of surprise to any event.

Our pickpocket magicians create the ultimate Dickension experience, whilst pinching a few wallets and watches at the same time!! Always popular, always atmospheric, always hilarious and always moustached, are The Acro Chaps, who will take you back a hundred years with interactive and entertaining Dickension walkabout acrobatics. And to keep things traditional, and making a great comeback, is silhouette artistry – allow our silhouette cutters to create bespoke portrait cut outs of every guest.

It wouldn’t be a themed list without adding one of the busiest times of year for the events and entertainment industry…C H R I S T M A S!! Shockingly a lot of our clients start booking up their Christmas entertainment a year in advance..C R A ZY we know, but for all those experienced planners and bookers out there I am sure that you will be in agreement that there is no such thing as being TOO prepared when it comes to Christmas planning! So here was go last but certainly not least….


Anything really goes when it comes to Christmas entertainment, but of course every client has his or her Christmas favs/preferred party performers. Nothing quite says Christmas like being met on arrival with a group of our outstanding Christmas carollers with Father Christmas smashing out those harmonies OR being blown away with our Snow Glow Shows combing lasers and performers to deliver breathtaking visual experiences! To really engage those Christmas partygoers our Magic Stage Shows performed by some of the finest magicians in the country leave guests in astonishment and amazement right through into the New Year!
