Ibiza weddings: Velvet Circus Ibiza – Personalised party props
Beautifying Ibiza events had been the core business of fashionable creative stylist Danielle Hodgson-Lindley long before launching her bespoke event styling and décor hire company, Velvet Circus Ibiza in 2013. Seven years as head stylist for exclusive island wedding planners, Ibiza Wedding, had already given Danielle a unique insight into the eclectic and outlandish possibilities within the Ibiza’s luxury villas and venues. A plan quickly started to form for a more flexible model beyond the bespoke wedding styling package – something that would leave the logistics of the event to the planners, yet still bring style, beauty and wow factor into the location.
In addition to custom designing weddings and glamorous island events, Velvet Circus Ibiza now offer a decoration hire and prop rental service, with additional on-the-day styling services available to clients if needed. It made perfect sense really; the years spent accumulating decor, furnishings, tableware, signage, lighting, fabrics and so much more meant Danielle had amassed a warehouse filled to the brim with whimsy and wonder (and some fairly straightforward practical must-haves too) – all of which, she believes should be put to good use!
The concept is simple: visit the Velvet Circus Ibiza website and peruse all the fabulous décor and props available to hire. With a plethora of options to suit all styles and needs – be it a chic garden party, a bohemian luxe cocktail event, a colourful birthday celebration, a minimal wedding or indeed, anything at all that could be dreamed up in Ibiza – Velvet Circus Ibiza will take your order, deliver your rented goodies on the morning (or evening) of the big day, and return to collect them once the last guest has gone off into the Ibiza night.
Some standout rental options include 12 custom-built wooden benches ideal for beach, lawn or countryside wedding ceremonies and chill out lounge areas alike, which can be upgraded with a variety of cushions and throws. You’ll also find stunning vintage-inspired peacock chairs, a variety of elegant wedding seating ranging from rustic to the iconic gold Chivari chairs, vintage-inspired prop boxes (ideal for fancy dress or goodie bags) and plenty more, from the biggest aforementioned items, right down to the tiniest details.
Tablescapes are one of Danielle’s specialties, and her collection boasts an array of different plates, glassware, cutlery, linens, centrepieces, runners – you name it, she’s got it. And if she doesn’t, she’s happy to source it, a firm believer in helping bring your creative event dreams to life. Lighting too, can be a key factor in bringing events to life, and Velvet Circus Ibiza could be considered the Tinkerbelle of Ibiza. Whether you’re planning for reams of festoons, trees dripping with fairy lights or thousands of candleholders to add a soft romantic flicker to the room, they have the ways and means to illuminate any space, anywhere, in any style.
Retro bulb-lit signage, bespoke neons or hand-painted rustic signs are always a great talking point (and Instagram moment) at weddings and events, and Danielle has many in stock, however she can also source particular requests or commission custom creations. And finally, the pièce de résistance within the Velvet Circus Ibiza collection in 2017 is a custom-made one-metre wide disco ball, ideal for suspending over pools at villa parties. And while it may be the star, it is really just the beginning. Taking care of the décor details of your event, not to mention the cleaning and packing away of it all afterwards, attention to detail is what’s important to Danielle and what makes a Velvet Circus Ibiza event so memorable too.
