Anyone can throw a party, but not everyone can throw an unforgettable party! The reason why is that most people don’t put the effort into making it special. If you have a special occasion coming up or maybe you want to throw somebody you love a surprise party, then look no further as we have some great suggestions to elevate your occasion.
Here are 5 useful ideas to make your party super fun and unforgettable.
Throw A Themed Party
Themed parties are always going to be a lot of fun, they give people a chance to get creative and dress up in fun costumes. Harry Potter or Encanto themed parties are very popular and can be great for you kids. There is a child that lives in all of us and parties are a great time to let that child out. One way to ensure your themed party is perfect is to get the right birthday party decorations because decorations have the power to make or break your party. You can buy decorations fairly cheaply, so even if you are working on a tighter budget, you will be able to find decorations well within your range. There are a tonne of themes out there, so if you are planning a party for a friend and they happen to love Minecraft, then that is a theme you can roll with.
Get A Chocolate Fountain Instead of Cake
If you really want your party to stand out then you should organize to have a chocolate fountain set up instead of buying your standard birthday cake. Chocolate fountains are a lot of fun and everyone at the party will definitely be talking about them. Consider setting up a station next to it and fill it out with strawberries, marshmallows, sweets, nuts, and any other goodies that people are likely to stick under the melting chocolate goodness. Be sure to put plenty of napkins nearby too, as it can get a bit messy!
Plan Party Games
No matter what the occasion, there is always a party game that can be played! If you are throwing a party for little ones, you can plan some of the classic games such as pass the parcel, whack the pinata, pin the tail on the donkey, and many more! Children are easily entertained and playing these games will certainly make the party-goers a very happy bunch. Children can also feel left out or jealous very easily, so if any goodies are going around for game-winners, then make sure there is plenty to go around to soothe those who did not win. If you are throwing an adult party, then here are our list of must-play party games:
- Slap Cup
- Beer Pong
- Beer Dodge
- Flip Cup
- Shot Pong
- Pass The Parcel (the drinking edition)
Whether your party is for kids, adults, or everyone and anyone, a game is always going to go down like a treat. It also makes for a great ice breaker if not everybody knows each other at the party as it gives people a chance to chat and mingle.
Everybody loves snacks, and the only way to up the greatest of snacks is to make them themed! If it is a Star Wars-themed party, consider making cookies into lightsaber shapes or Darth Vader helmets. This is a great way to have some fun and exert some creativity. You could host a competition and invite guests to bring their own themed snacks and have the party-goers vote for which one is best. To help give a little extra incentive, there could be a prize waiting for the best snack.
Cater For All Attendees
This might seem like a trivial point and while it might not make your party unforgettable, it can prevent your party from being remembered for all the wrong reasons. There is nothing worse than when a guest feels forgotten or unimportant, and this often happens when dietary requirements are neglected. So if you have any guests that are vegan, vegetarian, meat-eaters, gluten-free, or whatever else, make sure that there is food and drink that everybody can eat. This does not mean that all the food has to be vegan, but actually that you have some snacks that are vegan friendly and some that are gluten-friendly, and so on. If you are not sure about the guest’s dietary requirements, then play it safe and cover all grounds, and make sure there is something for every diet.
So there you have it, with each of those useful ideas you will be able to throw a party that is fun and unforgettable. Your guests will be talking about your party for a while to come and you can just lap up the compliments. Happy partying!
