Glitz and Glam 30th Birthday Party



The result

I knew I was asking a lot. I knew the team at Emphasis wouldn’t let me down. But I never imagined in my wildest dreams that my request to turn a standard hotel function room into a 'glitz and glam' extravaganza would end up looking as incredible as it did! The transformation took my breath away and the attention to every single detail – and the meticulous planning that must have gone into it all – meant that myself and my guests were treated to a perfectly glitzy party that is still talked about today! Thank you! – Natalie Ewens, Birthday Girl

The brief

We were asked to provide a Glitz and Glamour themed 30th Birthday Party with the main colour being pink. The suite was a typically corporate suite which would have to be transformed into a high-end party venue.

The solution


The first thing to change was the carpet in the venue, it was dark red with blue patterning and didn’t fit them theme of the party so we lay a neutral, champagne coloured carpet through the venue.


We built a 13m x 10m truss box at the end of the room, dressed with white truss socking, which allowed us to add table lighting and dancefloor lighting in lots of places and also allowed us to create a glitz and glamour backdrop. The backdrop consisted of varying sizes of gold balls and mirror balls which when lit filled the room with sparkles.


The main wow factor was provided by the dancefloor which was the only pink LED dancefloor in the UK. We also designed and made three window displays which were a 6ft high gold glittery stiletto, 6ft high pink glittery heart and 3 diamond filled martini glasses.
