Copacabana themed events have been popular for years, and continue to be a fun choice today.
The colours, feathers and rhythmic music are incredible inspiration for a festive celebration or corporate event.
The Copacabana is a distinct Brazilian beach and a popular tourist destination. Think sun, sea and endless fun. However, the term “Copacabana” in terms of event themes was also made famous by a Prohibition-era New York nightclub of the same name. The ban on alcohol at the time made New York a hub of illicit smuggling activity – mixing danger and excitement.
This theme can be brought to life in two distinct ways, with the first being beach inspired. We recommend using colour to injection personality into any space, but don’t go too wild. Combining too many colours can make an event look like a kids party instead of a sophisticated corporate celebration. Stick with three or four accent colours against a white base to really make the room pop.
Choose a poolside location, or even better, a marquee on the beach! We have the inside knowledge of all the Gold Coast’s best event venues, so get in touch if you need ideas.
Don’t forget entertainment! We love fire performers, Brazilian percussionists and glorious feathered showgirls.
If the prohibition era is more your style, here’s some hot tips….
Transform your venue into an underground Speakeasy. If you don’t have a venue, we LOVE Grandad Jacks.
From the moment guests arrive, a character actor will ask for the password to give them access. As they step through the doors, they will be enveloped in the smooth sounds of a secret jazz club with an angelic female vocalist dressed in swinging tassels. The club will have an industrial “street” vibe with pallet cocktail tables and comfortable chesterfield lounges. Food stations can be placed around the club for guests to indulge as they please, and gorgeous flapper girl dancers to circulate with gin cocktails. Glamourous touches appropriate to the roaring 20’s could include fairy lights, chandeliers and feather centrepieces. “Wanted” posters of company executives could line the walls and reinforce the Prohibition theme.
No matter what way you choose to bring the Copacabana theme to life, it’s guaranteed to be an unforgettable experience from start to finish.
