Soham Village College School Prom

Our new Wedding / event dressing and party supply shop in Ely has now been open for business for 5 months, and is getting busier by the day.

A Special Event were excited to have been asked to help create the 1920’s, Great Gatsby theme with event dressing at Soham Village College school prom.

Six or seven charming students from Soham Village College visited our shop “A Special Event” on Broad Street, Ely, Cambs, looking for inspiration for their theme.  After viewing our extensive range of event dressing hire items and party dressing wear they knew they had come to the right place to help create the look they wanted,  later they left with a clear idea knowing how their prom was going to look.

From our huge range of decorative hire items they chose, Ostrich feathers in lily vases, vintage bird cages and placed inside the cages were vintage books bound in lace ribbon with gold tipped feathers tucked under the ribbon, with a garland of pearls to complement. To round things off their final choice in table centre pieces was our statement 60cm high Martini glasses filled and draped with pearl garland.

The entrance hall was made to look grand with a 3m tall onyx black and gold balloon arch for the girls in their glamorous prom dresses and the boys in their tuxedos to make their formal entrance.  For around the room we supplied 40 clear giant bubble balloons with black feathers inside and the neck tied with gold and black ribbons, complimented with a cluster of onyx black and gold latex balloons.  The rooms were finished off with event dressing of gold pin wheel fan decorations, black and gold paper lanterns, crystal filled champagne flutes and to finish off the tables they had a light scattering of black and gold table confetti.


More event dressing in Soham,  this time at the Shade primary school,  for the Soham schools charity ball.

We took great pleasure in supplying all the table decoration and table centre pieces using one of our favorite pieces, the triple bubble bowl dressed in their chosen colour scheme of, orange, yellow and pink. We fitted 145 chairs with white covers and chair sashes again to their colour scheme.

A fabulous evening was had by all with many compliments on our event dressing.
