The Brief

To transform The Grove Hotel Ballroom into The Arctic, creating a contemporary Barmitzvah.

The Party

We wanted to introduce the Arctic theme from the start, but only subtly in the reception. Using some icy blue uplights and shot glasses made of ice, this was the guests’ only hint of what was to come.

The main room was completely draped in taut white draping with LED video panels piping linked images of falling snow and icicles. The children’s table was a snake shape with white caps in each place covered in neon graffiti with each child’s name. The top table was a bespoke oval white Perspex table which was positioned between the white LED dancefloor and the white bar lit in pale blue and neon green, the colours chosen to match the theme and DJ booth. Each table featured either a 1.5 metre ice sculpture of a stalagmite cluster or 2 metre white sprayed tree branch.

For the Barmitzvah boy’s entrance, we used snow machines to create a snowstorm inside the room – a huge wow factor for all the guests! A low fog machine added to the atmosphere, covering all guests up to their ankles as they entered, together with whistling wind noises, as though they had reached The Arctic. The stage was built in and an alcove, in keeping with the arctic theme and all the lighting was cold and harsh to add to the effect.

The sushi starter was served on individual ice blocks. During dessert, ice bowls were placed on tables filled with sweets for guests to pick during the dancing. The colourful cocktails, including a special neon blue creation, were a talking point and served throughout the evening.

We utilised a photobooth and created a bespoke background of a snowy mountain to continue The Arctic touches. The evening was topped off with a football trickster double act followed by a surprise performance by an X-Factor finalist. The atmosphere was electric and ensured everyone stayed on the dancefloor until the very end!
