Case Study: Capita’s Summer Ball

Posted on Tuesday, July 07, 2009

Sharper Solutions were once again pleased to provide creative ideas and theming behind Capita Business Services’ Annual Summer Ball. The client required a theme with elegance and glamour, so a favourite of the team at Sharper Solutions was presented - glamorous Hollywood with many of our new props available from 2009. 

Guests were greeted in reception by our steward in top hat and tails who escorted guests down the red carpet illuminated with new LED silver stanchions and red ropes creating the perfect VIP entrance. Either side of the entrance stood giant 3D Oscar statues. The Hollywood VIP entrance was complete with gobos search lights reminiscent of the Hollywood premiere lighting.

Once in reception lit poseur tables with beautiful parasols filled the area. A photographic backdrop area was created in the reception with giant film cameras, directors’ chairs and giant clapperboard.  

A simple yet stylish stage set was designed including a starcloth backdrop, silk flambeaux and giant 3D Oscar statues.

Tables featured black linens with our stunning new table centres - the Ice Melts. Tall cylinders wrapped with film reels and internal lighting are finished with a large ball of real ice. The ice melts over the course of the evening dripping crystals down the icicles. The perfect Hollywood table centre that guests couldn’t take their eyes off all evening.

The room was finished with a selection of new props including large free standing posters of film stars and giant size film reels featuring various legendary movies. 

The final touch was LED uplighters illuminating the room with two moving gobos with ’Hollywood’.
