Island Theme for Limes Hotel Brisbane 2012

This 'Island' theme Event was commissioned by Limes Boutique Hotel in Brisbane. This highly active venue is always making good use of their Rooftop Bar and on this occasion decided to treat their patrons with Exotic Tropical Cocktails. To put their patrons in the mood we were asked to provide both Props and Installation:

Island Theme Bar Canopy
This Bar Canopy consists of Bamboo Poles, Thatched Roof, Thatched Bar Skirt. These Props are attached to an Aluminium  frame and stabilised with steel base plates. Note: extra bracing ropes were used to cater for wind which is a constant element in this fabulous venue.
Tiki Bar Sign
The Tiki Bar Sign is a 1.8mtr Piece of marine ply that has been cut and painted by hand. It is attached to the frame.
Hawaiian Surfboard 
These Solid Timbre surfboards are 2.4mtrs High and 600mm wide and 20mm thick. The ancient Malibu design is  inlaid with Frangiapannies and lacqured to reveal the beautiful grain of the multi level timbre.
Palm Frond Clusters
We always recommend the addition of our synthetic palms fronds to add that extra texture and dimension to our Props. These life size palm frond are approximately .70cm High and 50cm wide.
This out door event required 2 x 100Watt Flood Lights to ensure the prop was visble and strongly represented at night. We also used Green and Yellow bulbs to add that tropical feel.

This venue is a little tricky when it comes to an installation as the there is only one lift. Fortunately all of the props fit into this lift (so no stair climbing was required), but we are often delayed while guests are are given priority...but this is usually on a problem during the bump-in. Bump-out usually happens late at night or very early in the morning and we have the lift all to ourselves.
