Standout Christmas Experiences!

As the party season steps up, the CAW event teams are out and about on the roads delivering stand out events all over the UK and, goodness me, there’s not even time even to say ‘Santa stop here!’ as the teams are way too busy!

Big Footfall® -our retail events division, is on a whirl-wind tour of retail promotions up and down the country, Prop Dead Gorgeous – our theming division,  is knee-deep in glorious Grottos, set builds for New Year exhibitions and Winter weddings whilst Crafty Arty Parties is doing what is does best:  superb corporate fundays and Christmas events. In fact, one client who runs one of the most iconic venues in London said; “When I see your events compared to what some of my customers have in this same venue, I really feel they are missing out and it’s not just about budget. It’s the attention to detail and outstanding quality of your work that makes you a cut above the rest!” 

With 2018 just around the corner it’s never to early to early to start planning your next event. We can help with original creative ideas and artwork, venue sourcing,  activities and entertainment, catering and all the bits in between!

Summer Blockbusters: Private Screenings


With all the exciting family film releases this Summer, it’s been one private screening after the other for Crafty Arty Parties and here are just a few of  some of the Summer’s blockbusters we’ve been involved in!

Ice Age Collision Course, the long awaited chapter in the ‘Ice Age’ gang’s adventures, saw the much loved characters attempt to stop a falling asteroid. Crafty Arty Parties’ very own giant woolly mammoth made guest appearances on numerous occasions throughout July, set amongst his towering icebergs and snowy peeks (provided by our theming company Prop Dead Gorgeous), creating the perfect ‘scene setter.’

The BFG is Steven Spielberg’s adaptation of Roald Dahl’s classic ‘big softie’ giant, and displays incredible technical achievements, with great reviews all round so far. Our enormous 3D foods, chairs, trees and even our giant toothbrush were all rolled out for the red carpet events and provided some great photo opportunities!

Disney Pixar’s Finding Dory, one of our favourites, is the much anticipated story of ‘Dory’ the forgetful blue tang fish, and the search for her long-lost parents. Crafty Arty Parties recently provided pre-screen activities and entertainment for VIP guests and celebrities on the opening weekend with our sister theming company Prop Dead Gorgeous providing a stunning themed backdrop for meet and greets.

Pete’s Dragon – the fantasy adventure film is one we cannot wait to see! Our very own life size ‘dragon cave’ is all packed and ready to go, and we await the film with baited breath… or should we say dragon breath?
