TEHC Team – Monday, November 23, 2015
The highly anticipated reality TV show I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! has made a return to our TV screens across the UK and the hype is already well and truly here. With the contestants already making press appearances and being documented in articles, the show is creating huge waves with the UK media. Here at The Event Hire Company, we’re excited to announce that we’ve increased our event styling stock and can now provide event styling hire products for any occasion, so to commemorate being one of the only bespoke event suppliers in the UK we’re giving you a rundown of the scenery that makes up the show, from the jungle camp to the theming of trials. The concept of this blog was inspired by a client’s suggestion for a jungle safari themed event to be held at an iconic London venue.
The camp itself plays host to a variety of styling options that ITV studios have placed within the jungle to give the illusion of remoteness whilst simultaneously incorporating some items that remind the contestants of home. Lanterns, crates and additional shrubbery are added to the living space to create an atmospheric ambience of remoteness, a major contrast from the world they are used to.
The iconic red London phone box makes a return this year, reiterating its status as a classic British landmark. The dry mud coloured hut is a nod to the native practices of the region and is a new addition to the camp this year, featuring an unidentifiable logo on the pine-clad door. It is questionable whether or not all of the greenery featured in the camp set-up is real, as there is a possibility that extra plants may have been added to further enhance the impression of seclusion in the wilderness.
In 2012 a jungle gym was introduced. In terms of styling, producers have resorted to using battery powered lanterns to provide a flame-free environment. The power rack has been bronzed in areas to show signs of ageing and the bench sprinkled with leaves to display the weathered appearance.
That’s our quick fire rundown of the thought processes that go behind creating the famous camp. The result undoubtedly looks visually pleasing on TV, even though it is supposed to represent the bare basics of the modern amenities we experience on a daily basis. Opting for event styling hire that looks like the jungle may sound daring but the team at TEHC have the commitment, enthusiasm and experience to make it happen.
