Do most of you guys do new themes every year or do you keep it the same and just add on to your existing theme? the past few years have done different themes but running out of storage room..
Sounds like an opportunity! Michael Myers in a chef hat holding a rolling pin... Michael Myers in a hard hat holding a hammer... Michael Myers in a nurse's cap holding a big hypodermic needle...... life size Michael Myers animatronic stand up. However, putting him in his box this year I broke the knife off.
This is such a great visual that made me LOL!!However, putting him in his box this year I broke the knife off.
Your right anybody can come and discuss anything. it really is a beauty. thanks for sharingPersonally, i don't do "Themes" as such, never have.. Not that i have anything against them, and i'll never say never, they seem to work for a lot of people and are a "go to" choice for many each year with a lot of success so i'll never knock the formula.
I just prefer to be random and unique with what i put out, be it inside or out, and rely on quality and originality as i feel it gives guests a bit more of a variation and things to look at instead of one same block of this or one same group of that.. Plus themes can add more pressure... Getting everything to work together, to look right.. Making sure you're on schedule for the build, that kind of thing.
I usually buy pieces from all over, whether that's at home or internationally. Pieces that when i see them, i think that's original, it's different, that would look great in such a place, nobody else will have that, and it gives me ideas further on..
Needless to say, it gives me a huge sense of pride and achievement to get people smiling, give them lots to look at and give them something to talk about.. But no matter what we do, we're all different and in it together for the love of it. What works for one might not work for another and we all have our ideas and ultimately, commitment. As long as we have fun doing it, that's the main aim.
As a final note, that's the beauty of this place. The fact we can all share ideas, nobody is selfish and holds anything back, we're all willing to help each other out and that's what keeps this forum great. It's a brilliant resource for creativity, ideas, material and everything else inbetween.
