How many times did you leave a party early? Probably too many times. Maybe it was because of the terrible music, or it might have been just boring. Whatever reason it might be, as a host, that’s not the outcome you’re hoping for. You want your party to amaze people and have people talk about it even years after. But how exactly do you throw a memorable party? Take a piece of paper, sharpen your pencil and get ready for some hosting tips and tricks. It’s time to become a pro in hosting parties.
When you throw a theme party, it’s kind of obvious that your music should fit the theme. You can do this by collecting theme-based songs in a music list. You can even involve your guests and ask them to add some songs as well. But then, how are you going to play the music? It should consist of a good bass so you can throw some dance moves. It should also be loud enough to sing along.
That’s where a good music system comes in. You can, for example, use a Sonos surround system to make your guests enjoy the music in every corner of the room. You can also choose to rent a karaoke machine for some extra fun.
Sure, decorations such as balloons and party garlands are mandatory. Without them, your party isn’t complete. However, you can also choose to take it one step further. Imagine: a Disney theme party. You walk into the room, and there are fragments from Disney movies all over the walls. On your right, there is Mowgli with Balou, and on your left, you see Simba dancing on a tree. Now, that’s what I call a Disney party. The best part is that it’s quite simple to make this happen. All you need are a couple of white walls and some video projectors matching your walls. If your walls are painted or decorated, you can also use greenscreens.
It’s time to steal the show! Whatever theme party you throw: there are more than enough party clothes to choose from. From a cowboy outfit (Dutch: cowboy kleding) to an Indian costume (Dutch: indianen kleding). Make sure that your outfit is the bomb. After all, you’re the host of the party. And remember: a perfect costume requires more than just clothes. You can use a wig, accessories, and makeup to complete your look. Do you want to be sure that your guests put effort into their outfits as well? Arrange a contest in which the best costume wins a prize. Mark my words: it works every time.
I hope these gadgets and tips will help you arrange a party to remember. Every birthday is worth celebrating, and a little party never hurts anyone. Good luck and enjoy your upcoming theme parties! We hope our tips will be of good use.
