50s Dance, Bowling and Diner
The Fifties – World War II was over, and the cold war was ramping up. Elvis burst onto the scene in 1954 and Marlyn Monroe stood over a subway grating in ’55 and that iconic image of her dress blowing up was born. Movies like “The Seven Year Itch” drew big crowds and our love affair with the car also exploded as we all hit the road and drive-in theatres sprang up everywhere.
Auto shops and milk bars featured in many films of this era and our prop makers and stylists have put together a colourful assortment of props and painted backdrops that will transport your guests back to a 50’s auto shop and milk bar. With life size Elvis and Marilyn from that dress scene in “The Seven Year Itch”, giant ice-cream Sundays and bags of movie popcorn, car boots for beverages and food, petrol bowsers, hot rods and 44 gallon drums – the scene is set for your themed event.
As well as many colourful theatrical and oversize props we also have many authentic everyday items that can be used to dress a period set from that era. Talk to our salespeople.
Yeah Baby - this is more than one Groovy Theme!
Our 60s Theme can deliver a colourful rendition of a Hippy Commune à la Woodstock and Monterey Pop Festival. Or give a venue a sixties vibe with select props from our vast collection.
Colourful and packed with detail, our 60s theme variations scale very well over large areas and are also great for an informal cocktail setting. With cushions, bean bags, a life-size painted horse, as well as an assortment of eclectic furniture – garlands and painted murals, rustic wooden crates with produce, tents and campfires, swings and wisteria trees – colourful draping and psychedelic patterns, vases with flowers, incense and candles – an old baby grand piano and a 4.2m high illuminated maple tree.
School Prom and Disco Queen!
1970s at the disco! Bring Saturday Night Fever back with this fun and groovy theme…
Get on the dancefloor and do those boogie moves with our range of 70s disco props. Use disco balls, giant disco shoes, and John Travolta cut outs to create the disco club scene. If you want to capture what is was like back in the 70s why not add an astronaut and rocket and old televisions and furniture in the mix as well?
Back to the Future!
Reminisce about the 80s when you were back at high school wearing your sneakers and chewing on gum? Loved the movies of the time? Create that 80s look with our props.
Use our school classroom props to create an 80s vibe with lockers dotted with posters and other bric-a-brac or why not recreate your high school prom? Use balloons, swans, hearts, sequinned or chiffon drapes to create the dance area and have on the stage guitars, a ghetto blaster stereo and a mic for the band to perform. Dim the lights and action!
