Themed Gala Dinners

Themed Gala Dinners

Selecting the Ideal Theme for your Gala Event can really make or break the success of your planned occasion.
Here are a few of the most inventive theme ideas to help you in deciding how to inspire a creative gala end product.

One of the most popular gala event themes — the masquerade — fits in perfectly with the black tie style of dress. Its stylish nature supports the attire and the atmosphere is already commonly associated with many formal events.

Moulin Rouge
Moulin Rouge comes complete with plenty of excitement, ballroom dancing, impressive costumes, floor acts, and décor. Use a deep red and black color scheme with dim overhead lighting for the best decorative results.

The Oscars
All of the glamour associated with these prestigious award ceremonies supplies a great building block for a gala dinner. Theatrical costumes, entertainment, and props are sure to liven up your dinner and draw praise from the art and entertainment lovers.

An auction offers a great way to raise money for any cause, and creates an event in which everyone can participate. A silent auction allows guests to talk amongst them while bidding on items.

Hawaiian / Caribbean Night
Nothing brings out good times like the idea of an island getaway. Use bright colors and blues for your décor and choose from a variety of centerpieces such as leis, straw umbrellas, and exotic candles.

Take a step back in time to the era of kings, queens, and knights and enjoy a gala dinner with a different style. Medieval décor uses centerpieces such as coats of arms, prop armaments, or various other pieces from the time period.

Secret Garden
The secret garden party is based around mystery and a sense of wonderment. The venue chosen should either be a garden itself or decorated to fit the description. Live music and elegant costumes are staples of a secret garden party, and this theme can easily be incorporated into any gala affair.

Capture the true spirit of the theatre by decorating your venue in Broadway fashion. Stage acting, rich colors and plenty of lights attract attention to your event and add an element of art to your gala event.

Having the perfect theme is only the first step in planning a successful gala event. Even the smallest misstep can break the atmosphere and create items that seem out of place. Whether you’re in Cape Town, Durban or Johannesburg Tusk Event Management can provide you with these wonderful themes for Gala Event and much more.
