Social events and parties are not like they used to be. There is an element of competition when it comes to how your party looks and feels. Everyone is always looking for that special something to set their part apart from all of their friends.
There are many things that you can do to take your party to the next level. These can be minor, like decorations and music or you could go all out and hire professional entertainers like mascots. By being creative and thinking outside the box you will be able to make some real magic happen.
1. Pick a theme
A party that has a theme can be something that people will be talking about for a long time. The key here is to think of something memorable. Another benefit is that committing to a theme makes it easy to make decisions about the rest of the party. It doesn’t have to be a generic theme, you can pick any random thing and just run with it. A theme could even be something as simple as a colour or as elaborate as a murder mystery.
2. Take extra care over the invitations
The invitations to a party are your chance to make a first impression. Online invitations are easy and practical but if you are going to the effort of putting a party together try to send out real invitations. You can make your invitations a lot more impactful is you do something out of the ordinary with them. The key here is to be creative and enjoy yourself.
3. Hire a mascot
Throughout the night you will probably be looking for ways to take your party to the next level. If you plan to have someone in a full mascot costume turn up during the party, you will be able to really make sure that your party is Instagram worthy. Bonus points if you tie the mascot in with the theme of the party.
4. Keep the surprises coming
There is no reason why you can’t have surprised throughout the night. If you keep your guests guessing at what you’re going to do next you will be able to guarantee that no one leaves early.
5. Keep everyone engaged
You need to make sure that no one feels left out at the party. You should make sure that every guest feels involved and no one is excluded. If everyone is having fun then the atmosphere at the party will be electric. You will be able to sit back and watch the magic unfold.
6. Colour can be very impactful
By choosing a colour for your theme you can create a really impactful party. This is an easy way to make things look good. Commit to one colour and make everything that colour or variations of that colour. You can even encourage every one of your guests to dress in that colour too.
7. Go big or go home
When it comes to planning a party that you want to be special you should think big. If you get a handful of balloons to decorate your party, it will look normal. But if you get a small room and fill it with hundreds of balloons it is going to make a huge dramatic impact. The same can be said of the other decorations and the food.
8. The food is very important
Don’t skimp on the food. You will need to make sure that your guests are well fed from start to finish. Try to prepare foods that don’t require a lot of preparation as you don’t want to spend all of your party in the kitchen do you?
