Creating ‘Fabulous Las Vegas’



Case study :: Creating ‘Fabulous Las Vegas’

  • THEME EVENT: ‘Fabulous Las Vegas’ theme party
  • REASON: Joint 18th & 21st Birthday
  • VENUE: Marquee
  • BUILD TIME: 3 days
  • CLIENT: Private


The brief: A theme party was required for a client. The family were celebrating the children’s milestone ages of 18 & 21. The theme was chosen by the client as ‘Las Vegas’… and we added the ‘Fabulous‘!


Creating the first impression: We started with a blank canvas looked at the family home and selected the best location for the marquee considering:

  • Client arrival
  • Drop Off
  • Parking
  • Champagne reception

All of which are key to create the perfect first impression. Following this we wanted to create initial excitement from the moment the guests arrived. We fabricated a large ‘Welcome to ‘Fabulous Las Vegas’ sign (resembling the real one) at the main entrance which was perfect as a backdrop for photos on arrival. This was positioned at the start of a VIP red carpet and barriers which led you in style to the clear marquee for the champagne reception. The marquee boasted wow factor red & black carpet which totally enhanced the marquee and gave the desired high impact first impression.


Creating the entertainment area: To enforce the event theme, the main entertainment area boasted an array of decorative lighting, furniture, props and special effects including:

  • Illuminating bar
  • Illuminating poseur tables
  • Feather table centres
  • Illuminating motion curtains
  • Marquee style wooden letters ‘Casino’ & ‘VIP’
  • Large casino chips
  • Las Vegas Signage
  • Lavish Swags
  • Monster Mirror balls
  • Black polished dance floor
  • Programmed intelligent lighting
  • Stage lighting
  • Fairy lights & Pea lighting
  • Chill out furniture & soft furnishing
  • Illuminating LED furniture


The entertainment:

  • Nightclub DJ: Potter Group
  • Live swing singer: James Spilling
  • Live band: Whiteroom
  • Photobooth:



How it came together:

…. sorry that’s one for us and our client!
