Why choose a Magic Mirror photobooth for your Essex wedding?

October 4, 2018 3:21 pm

You are bound to be bubbling with excitement as the date of your Essex wedding nears. However, even if you have already decided on the venue, the guest list and the cake, you might not have realised how much you could enliven the event by adding a Magic Mirror photobooth.

What is the Magic Mirror photobooth all about?

Even as your guests initially glimpse the Magic Mirror photobooth at the venue, they could be struck with awe. It consists of a full-length mirror framed by very modern-looking internal LED lighting. To snap themselves, a guest only has to touch the mirror and then strike a pose.

Their imagination can run riot with thoughts of how they could pose and with what items. When you hire a Magic Mirror photobooth for your big day, we can provide a range of exciting props from which guests can choose in preparation for the picture to be taken!

We can allow for a truly unique photobooth experience

Much of the fun of having a Magic Mirror photobooth ready and waiting in your wedding venue is that you simply can’t predict how your guests will react to it. This kind of photobooth has the wonderful ability to make many different people lose their inhibitions!

Don’t be surprised if a queue starts forming at that Magic Mirror as everyone from your Dad and his extended family to Nana all become eager to strut their stuff in front of what is basically a giant camera lens in disguise. It might be a relief to you, then, that you can hire it for an entire three-hour period from us.

In that time, each guest can choose from a range of backgrounds for their shot, to which they can even add their own digital signature. Once the photo has been captured, the guest can instantly receive it as a print, while we can also later send you a USB stick that includes all of the images.

We will also provide an experienced attendant with your Magic Mirror photobooth who can prevent any unexpected technical difficulties holding up the fun for too long. This can give you invaluable reassurance as you make use of Magic Mirror photobooth hire for an Essex wedding

What makes an LED white starlit dance floor the perfect finishing touch for your London birthday party?

September 20, 2018 11:08 am

You might’ve thought that simply holding your next birthday party in London would be exciting enough, but let’s be honest: once you get to the venue ahead of the celebration, set up all of the equipment, welcome guests and serve the various food and drinks, there’s a lot of scope for boredom.

After all, you need to keep the fun vibe going right through the night’s party. Well, the great news is that there are few things closer to a ‘golden bullet’ for livening up your celebration than white starlit dancefloor hire in London, as is available from Save the Date!

Here are just a few reasons why.

Who doesn’t love to dance?

Yes, some of us may feel we have two left feet, but the truth is that dancing is one of the key things that make us human.

When you have the right music playing and a dazzling LED white starlit dance floor in place at your venue, it’s practically guaranteed that everyone will be having a boogie at some time during the evening’s festivities.

It looks amazing in photos  

Let’s be honest… part of the reason you’re hosting such an extravagant birthday party in the first place is probably the opportunity that it gives you to show off to all of your friends.

With a little assistance from Facebook or Instagram, you can do that these days even in front of the people who don’t attend your party. The presence of one of our starlit dancefloors in every photo will therefore greatly help to give the impression that no one has birthday parties as crazy or as hedonistic as yours.

You can turn even the most mundane venue into a disco

As with that other good old-fashioned party favourite – the hanging disco ball – an LED white starlit dancefloor really helps to transform what may have otherwise been a pretty uninspiring backdrop into a place where everyone simply has to dance.

It literally lights up a room, serves as a signal to everyone to get down and strut their stuff, and looks even more astounding when you complement it with something like our light-up letters and numbers or Magic Mirror photobooth. In fact, why not consult our latest special offers to see just how affordable all of these birthday party essentials could be when you hire them together?

Remember that we offer a wealth of sizes from which to choose when you turn to Save the Date for white starlit dancefloor hire in London – so you really can find a dancefloor that suits whatever space you have in mind.

Call our team on 07854 457776 or complete and submit our online contact form, and we’ll help to ensure you benefit from the most suitable final touches for your birthday party in the British capital.

5 tips to ensure the success of the next baby shower you organise

September 6, 2018 11:32 am

You may have long thought that baby showers were a relatively recent trend imported from America, but they can actually trace their history to places closer to home: ancient Greece and Egypt, where it was customary for new mothers to be honoured with a meal after being left in privacy for 10 days following the birth.

Thankfully, there’s slightly more for the mother or mother-to-be to look forward to these days when a baby shower is being planned! So if you’re organising one for a friend, family member or loved one, here are some of our favourite tips for making it a triumph.

Don’t fuss too much over the timing of the baby shower

There’s more flexibility these days around baby showers than there used to be, as is shown by attitudes to when one is held. Basically any time after conception is fine, and the majority of expectant mums tend to prefer theirs to be thrown at a relatively advanced stage of the pregnancy.

Some mothers, though, would rather have their baby shower after the baby is born, especially if they have any worries about their pregnancy or the impending birth.

Gauge whether the mother wants a baby shower

While a baby shower can be an immensely enjoyable event for everyone involved, there’s also no doubt that many mums-to-be can often feel overwhelmed and tired during their pregnancy, so there’s no guarantee that they will entirely appreciate the baby shower you have planned.

At the very least, don’t shock them with a baby shower that’s a complete surprise. Ask them first for their thoughts on having a baby shower, so that you can gauge whether there’s any specific atmosphere or type of event that they would like.

Carefully consider the most appropriate foods to serve

When you’re organising an event for a pregnant woman, you need to spend a bit more time thinking about the menu than you might do for any other kind of party attendee. This is why a buffet may be an especially good option, given the sheer variety that it enables you to offer.

One possibility is to go for a desserts-only menu, including some of the favourite chocolates, sweets, cakes and cookies of the mum-to-be and dad-to-be.

Play ‘guess the celeb’ or ‘guess the baby name’

You will want the baby shower to be full of fun rather than just idle conversation, so a few games can be great for injecting some giggles and even a bit of good-natured competition!

What about a ‘guess the celeb’ game, for instance, involving some cut-out magazine pictures of pregnant celebrities with their heads folded back? Or if the mum-to-be likes the idea, you could even have a list of 20 boys’ names and 20 girls’ names, with a prize on offer to whoever chooses the name that the mum ultimately goes with once the baby is born.

Go for beautiful and tasteful baby shower decorations

A baby shower presents the perfect opportunity to be imaginative with the decorations that you put up – something we can very much help you with here at Save the Date!

Whether you like the idea of hiring one of our gorgeous flower walls, some light-up letters to reveal the baby’s gender, or even everything included in one of our dedicated baby shower packages, the right baby shower decorations could play a big part in making your event one to remember for the right reasons.

How about giving the Save the Date team a call today, on 07854 457776, to discuss in greater detail how we could add those all-important magical touches to the baby shower you’re organising, in the form of high-quality and well-priced baby shower decorations in London, Hertfordshire or Essex?

Make us your choice for light-up heart arch hire across London, Hertfordshire and Essex

August 23, 2018 1:49 pm

When you’ve got an event coming up that could do with plenty of ‘heart’ – such as, say, a baby shower, children’s party, birthday celebration, anniversary or charity event – you can’t do much better than literally introducing a heart. Or, to be more specific, a lit-up heart arch!

Yes, that’s right – we offer precisely these here at Save the Date, beautifully complementing our light-up numbers and letters.

Those are just some of the possibilities, but one thing is for sure: our Love Heart Arch will provide a gorgeous focal point for your London, Essex or Hertfordshire event or celebration.

But it’s not just a heart arch that we can bring you…

Just imagine how you could enhance our Love Heart Arch by also hiring some of our letters and numbers! These can be great for spelling out the names of those to be toasted at the event, or even communicating an important message that you would like every attendee to see.

Our generous stock of illuminated letters and numbers means you really can convey whatever message you wish to convey. Don’t forget that we can also bring you gorgeous handcrafted rustic ‘LOVE’ light-up letters for those slightly more rustic or barn-like environments.

Such items help to make us an even more appealing option for light-up heart arch hire, as you can depend on us for everything you need for your event as far as giant letters, numbers and such other key extras as flower walls, magic mirror photobooths and LED dance floors are concerned.
