Brisbane Events with a Twist – Beanbags!

posted by Danielle Lewis April 10, 2017 0 comments

Here at Brisbane Threads we attend and plan a LOT of events. And we’ve been to our fair share that have been thrown together at the last minute and really left a lot to be desired. So when it comes to the little details that can leave a lasting impression on guests, we are always on the hunt to find awesome local businesses that deliver.

And let me tell you, we threw a team event right here at the Brisbane Threads office a couple of weeks ago, and stumbled onto a goldmine. A Beanbag goldmine that is!! You see, we just moved into our office earlier this year and we are yet to deck it out completely. So when it came time to organising an event, we realised that we really didn’t have a ‘chill out’ area to hang out and have a drink with the team. The AMAZE-ING team at Beanbags Hire & Sales came to our rescue and I can’t tell you what a difference it made to our space and how it left everyone talking!

We hired 15 beanbags to fill up the space and put on drinks, nibbles and a game of Mario Kart – team building at it’s finest!

I was actually a bit worried that we might spill our drinks on the beanbags or that they might be worn out from previous use, so I was absolutely blown away when the lovely Toula arrived and set them up and told me you can simply wipe them clean with a wipe.

Beanbags Hire & Sales use their own designed & trademarked bean bag called the iSEAT® and it’s phenomenal quality vinyl, tear drop shaped, in 10 different colours, all looking brand spanking new AND they are made in Australia. They are adult size which made everyone in the team feel comfortable and relaxed. Plus it added a new level of fun to the afternoon.

Beanbags Hire & Sales have over 100 bean bags available for hire and they deliver and pick up as well, which makes setting up for any event a breeze.

The beanbags are perfect for a fun afternoon with friends, a birthday party or even bigger corporate events.

And I know you think there couldn’t be any more to rave about bean bags, but in speaking to Toula I also found out that they work very closely with different charities and local community organisations as well, so by supporting their business you are also helping them support our community as well!

If you have an event coming up, don’t hesitate to reach out to Toula or the team on the contact details below:

The iSEAT® is also for sale and can be custom made to your corporate, sports club or school colours, see iseat.com.au for further details.

Time of the Month

posted by Emmy O'Neill April 7, 2017 0 comments

That ‘Time Of the Month’ is usually one of the times we don’t usually like to talk or even read about.

Women get all embarrassed and men (well sorry if you are reading and not meaning to generalise), but men usually just get grossed out. I don’t know about you, but growing up in the late 90’s early 00’s it kind of felt like getting your period was an annoyance and stopped the pace of normal life. The number of girls in high school who couldn’t participate in sport lessons because ‘flo had come to town’ was a weekly occurrence. It felt like advertisements about ‘that time of the month’ were promoting the need to avoid those awkward and embarrassing moments that happen when you get your period.

Sleeping In Style

posted by Madi West March 9, 2017 0 comments

When I think of James Street there is no denying that thoughts of style, luxury and of course FASHION come to mind.

James Street has been known for years to us Brissie locals as the New York of Brisbane. The location where your bank account can take a serious hit both day and night, swapping between spending some serious dollars on fashion in the morning to having a cocktail or five at night.

Never before have you been able to stay the night right amongst all this hype that is James Street, however now with the addition of the only hotel on the block you can. SAGE Hotel is a unique fashion forward hotel located in the middle of everything and we had the pleasure of staying the night.

Trainspotting at Dendy

posted by Emmy O'Neill February 14, 2017 0 comments

Who doesn’t love a glass of bubbles and the red carpet whilst at the movies? We love us a movie preveiw screening especially when it is 20 years in the making!

This Friday 17th February Dendy Portside are hosting a red carpet screening of the sequel to Trainspotting; the 1996 movie which had a cult following, killer soundtrack (remember Underworld’s ‘Born Slippy’) and made us fall in love with that sexy Scottish accent. Funny, serious, confronting, heart-breaking & beautiful. T2 Trainspotting promises all that and more. It is set exactly twenty years later in 2016 with the same cast including Ewan McGregor, Ewen Bremner and John Lee Miller. This Scottish black comedy directed by Danny Boyle is rebellious, fast-paced and promises to have and even sexier soundtrack.  Continue Reading

The Danger Ensemble

posted by Emmy O'Neill February 7, 2017 0 comments

“Hey Lovers, we want HATERS. Know someone who thinks theatre is boring? Irrelevant? Thinks Shakespeare is for old people? We want those people at our show.”

Not your typical theatre plug but there is nothing ‘typical’ about The Danger Ensemble. I love me some thinking-outside-of-the-all-the-boxes-marketing strategies. The Danger Ensemble is really embracing the age of social media; Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and they even created a Spotify playlist. These efforts to publicise Macbeth are on point, completely relevant and actually make me intrigued and want to go see some Shakespeare. But before I head off to opening night this Thursday I wanted to sit down with Artistic Director Steven Mitchell Wright and ask him a few questions.
