Art of the Event has created dozens of Boston-themed props for past clients, so we know a thing or two about how to really wow guests at a Boston-themed party. Below are just a few ideas that will hopefully get those creative juices flowing.

Event Decor For Boston Themed Events

North End Inspired. Boston’s “Little Italy” includes Hanover St. and all of it’s authentic Italian food glory. But that’s not all the North End neighborhood is known for! Art of the Event can recreate the Paula Revere House as well as the Old North Church. Table centerpieces can include old world wine bottles, vintage postcards from Italy, and other iconic props. Choose an Italian-American style menu and top it off with pastries and cannolis that will rival’s Mike’s Pastry.


Charlestown Inspired. Want a nautical-themed party with a historical twist to it? Art of the Event’s custom fabrication team can recreate backdrops of the Boston Naval Shipyard, the USS Constitution, or Bunker Hill Monument. Decor can include nautical themed furniture, centerpieces that include seashells or buoys, as well as ocean or underwater-inspired lighting effects.


Fenway-Kenmore Inspired. It’s hard to not think of professional sports when someone mentions a Boston themed event. We certainly love our sports here! Art of the Event has created NFL-inspired, NHL-inspired, and MLB-inspired events that include logos from our hometown professional sports teams. From replica jerseys hanging from the walls to sports-themed banquet menus, Art of the Event will work with you to make sure that every detail is perfect, all the way down to the shade of green on The Green Monster at Fenway Park.


Downtown Boston Inspired. Let us recreate Boston’s city skyline as the backdrop for your staged event! Our fabrication team can recreate Boston’s iconic statues such as Make Way For Ducklings, the Statue of Paul Revere, Bejamin Franklin, John Harvard, or Samuel Adams. Let us help you create an iconic and unforgettable event using 21st-century modern furniture, clean lines and minimalist decor that’s sleek and sophisticated.

Back Bay Inspired. From the Boston Public Gardens to the Boston Public Library, Back Bay is a beautiful neighborhood — perfect for drawing inspiration from. Your event’s table decor can include local flowers (arranged by our floral department) inspired by those found in the public gardens in order to create a dreamy and more intimate feel for your event. As the city’s shopping district, a Back Bay-based event such as a bachelorette party of bat mitzvah is a popular choice for those fashion forward hosts. Let us help make your event venue playful and colorful!

Flowers for wedding
