International Themed Parties and Props

Recently, one of our favorite events was featured by Partyslate in their “Best Of Sweet Sixteens”…

Cipriani 42nd Street.png

In November 2009, we fell in love with the world just as this birthday girl had. The venue, Cipriani 42nd street, was transformed into a celebration of diverse cultures, guiding guests through international destinations. Our work showcased custom props and furniture, as well as personalized features evoking this teen’s passion for travel.

You can check out full galleries of this event on Partyslate here, or on our website here.

International, Around the World, Culturally Diverse, and Travel themed events are one of the best platforms to showcase our unparalleled collection of regionally specific props and decor.

But, we figured a hefty blog post couldn’t hurt either, so here’s a look into some of our favorite photos and pieces from and inspired by each continent!

Unique Bar Rentals in New Jersey and New York City

Decorative bar rentals are a great way to reinforce themes, while also providing a functional focal point for your event. Here are some of our favorites from the Eggsotic Events collection:

Our simple, rustic oak barrel bar is popular for tent weddings and vineyard events, and features a wooden top and two classic oak barrels. Special rigging makes it sturdy even in high use. It looks great accompanied by live ferns and other floral/foliage accents.

This high-impact 12' double bar was part of the Club Primesport Super Bowl Pregame Experience. We provided glowing bars and installed custom graphics to reinforce the host company's branding. Behind the bar, we used custom black drape, diamond plate panels, and custom artwork of Bonnie Bernstein, one of the event's celebrity hosts.

Bar Rental NJ NYC Eggsotic Events Nautical Theme Bar Beach Bar Sailor Jerry Rum Bar 1.jpg

This nautical themed bar was for Sailor Jerry Rum's booth at an alcohol industry trade show. We heard it was the highlight of the event and the busiest booth of the whole show. Our captain's wheel, swordfish, foliage, and other nautical accents reinforced the brand's signature look.

This is actually the same bar as the Sailor Jerry bar shown above, only instead of a nautical surround, it was coupled with an elegant tropical floral arrangement and a personal accent photo.

This glowing acrylic bar is coupled with one of our hand-painted panel art creations by Egils Matiss.

This bar was in the kids' area at one of our most memorably unique bar mitzvahs: an Archie Comics theme mitzvah. We created a '50s diner-inspired backdrop and used our jumbo ice cream, ketchup, burger and gum ball machine as accents.

Here's a glowing bar we customized for a technology trade show in NYC. We used our ultra-bright LED lights, so that even in a room with the house lights on, this bar shines. Here's another great perk of glowing bars:

This bar can be transformed into different styles based on theme and season.

FAQ on Gobos

What is a gobo?

Our prospective clients ask us this question often, so we'd like to explain the meaning and applications here. 

A gobo is a steel or glass stencil-like sheet that is used in light projection fixtures. Gobos project patterns, textures, colors, and graphics on to floors, ceilings and walls.

The name gobo comes from "go between" or "goes between optics". The gobo is inserted into a sleeve in between the light fixture's light source (bulb) and its lens. The lens allows the installer to focus and size the projected image based on the desired look.

There are two primary types of gobos: standard stock gobos and custom gobos. 

There are also two types of gobo materials: steel and glass.

Standard Gobos

Standard gobos, or stock gobos, are gobos that are pre-manufactured in thousands of different patterns, images, and objects. Many common items, such as landmarks, hearts, stars, sports imagery, and abstract patterns are available as standard gobos. When you select a standard gobo projection fixture rental, we include your choice of standard/stock gobos at no additional charge.

Custom Gobos

Custom gobos are manufactured specifically for your event. They can include your logo, company name, couples' names, initials, event date, graphic of choice, and so on. They are manufactured by taking your image (a high resolution JPEG, PNG, or PDF) and manipulating it based on the type of gobo.

Steel Gobos

Steel gobos are the most frequently used kind of gobo. They are laser-cut from a thin sheet of steel. This means that the image being produced has "bridging", which refers to very thin lines to hold the gobo pattern together. For example, this image shows the difference between the original graphic and the gobo pattern:

Steel gobos are the most cost-effective choice of custom gobo. However, there are some limitations to the complexity of the image, and some graphics are more heavily impacted by bridging than others.

Glass Gobos

Glass gobos are custom manufactured, and can include a 1-color or full color image of your logo, monogram, or other graphic. Glass gobos can be more complex and also more easily legible than steel gobos. If you are hosting an annual event, glass gobos are an excellent choice because the projection quality is high and they are reusable year after year.

How many gobos do I need?

To determine the quantity and type of gobos you need for your event, please contact us. We'll review the layout of the space, the objectives of the projections, and we'll develop a layout that creates the impact you're envisioning.
