April 3 to 9

People, places and things on our hot list this week.

Ever wanted to throw a fancy dress or themed party but never wanted the hassle of finding props, a Jack Sparrow costume or the appropriate decor? That's where Creative Thread comes in, a company that provides costumes, decorations and a complete backstage set up for events, shows and parties. Their products are available for purchase or for rental at half-price. What sets their costumes apart is that they are much classier than those offered by other fancy-dress outlets - which, let's face it, wouldn't be too difficult. A sure way to spruce up any party.
