Benefits of Choosing a Party Theme

Monday, August 8th, 2011

People expect a party to be filled with fun and enjoyment. Nobody wants to join a party that is boring and lifeless. Whether it is a simple tea party or a big wedding reception, a themed party many times rocks and becomes successful.

If you don’t want your party to be yet any other event, select appropriate theme for your party to make it unique. Below are some of the benefits of choosing a party theme.

Sets mood of the party: Party becomes successful only with the lively participation of the guests. Without enough amusement, you may not be able to motivate your guests to fully participate in the event. A theme for your party may help you in setting party mood among your guests. Every theme has a unique feel associated with it, and is sustained throughout the party. Right from the venue, to the decorative items, menus, costumes, favors, games, etc. If every element of the party is in sync with the theme, it propels the mood of your guests in the party, automatically.

Decoration part becomes easy: You will not get confused while choosing decorative items if you have a theme for your party. The theme itself guides you through the different aspects of organizing a party like choosing the venue, colors, decorative items, party accessories, and so on.

For instance, if you are planning for a glow-themed night party, it is obvious that colorful glow sticks dominate most part of the decoration. You will plan to choose various glow products like, glow swords, balloons, balls, light-up toys and so on to decorate your party venue. You can further choose to decorate the dining section with glow barware.

A change over for the guests from regular parties: Have you ever observed the difference between parties where guests show up because they have to, and the ones where guests attend because they want to? Regular socializing makes parties routine. You will see more and more people excusing themselves out of such events.

Themed parties are always new and trendy. Guests feel excited to attend themed parties, as they offer perfect break from regular ones. Unlike the routine socializing in the normal parties, these themed parties give a chance for the guests to be different, as they are required to dress up differently, perform different activities like games, dances and so on.

The very fact that these themed parties provide a change over for the guests, make them more involved in the party.

Perfect party theme reflects your creativity: A perfect theme is the one which is according to your tastes and preferences and acceptable by majority of the guests. Mixing a general theme with your out-of-box thinking, speaks up for your creativity. Applying your own ideas and skills to customize a theme, gives a unique impression of the theme and the party to everyone.

Makes the party memorable: People generally remember the parties that offer maximum entertainment. Special programs, performances and the utmost fun associated with these themed parties make them a pleasant memory. These parties are a treat to attend as well as to plan.

Theme based parties are more successful than regular ones. They draw in more guests as they assure an entirely varied feel and wholesome entertainment.

Choosing the Right Party Theme

Thursday, July 14th, 2011

Choosing a theme is probably the most important decision you’ll make while planning a party. A perfect theme not only sets tone to celebrate the event but also makes it easy to plan for the party. It determines the overall look and feel of the event or party.

Theme for a party is important

Any party can have a theme, no matter how simple the occasion is. A party theme makes it easy for you to choose party supplies, decorations, food, favors, etc. A wisely chosen party theme makes it easy for your guests to get involved in the party.

An appropriate theme reflects its scope throughout the party. It links with each and every component in the party. Even if all the components of the party are good but if they do not gel together they destroy the fun at the party. Theme is a common thread that flows through various constituents like party invitations, favors, décor, food and many others.

Invitations:

Themed invitations convey the guests that the party is going to be unique and interesting. The invitations should be designed in such a way that they directly relate to the theme of the party. For instance, funny images or cartoon characters can be printed on your kid’s birthday party invitation.

Decorations:

Decoration of the venue plays an important role in driving your party theme. Make sure that all items used in decorating the venue are matching the party theme. For instance, if you are planning for a glow-themed night party, choose glow sticks or other glow products like glow balloons, glow balls, etc.

Favors:

Choosing party favors can be quite confusing. Since your party already has a theme, party favors can simply be chosen based on it. This makes your guests more engaged with the party and its theme. Let’s consider a glow-themed night party again; you can give glow sticks, glow jewelry or other flashing novelties as party favors to suit the theme.

Food:

Delicious food takes party to the next level. If yours is an Indian themed party, you can include Biryani, Samosas, Rotis, etc. If it is a Hawaiian themed party, you can include pine apples and coconut food. However, if you are not able to make the menu unique, you can at least make your theme reflect in the utensils you serve food and drinks, costumes of the serving crew, decoration of the food court, etc.

No limit for themes

The list of ideas for party themes is endless. They can be cultural, humorous, colored, venue-inspired, glow themes and a lot more. They may differ for wedding parties, birthday parties, school parties, Halloween parties and so on. However, make sure that you choose a theme that is apt to the occasion. You can add any number of arrangements to the party as long as they are in sync with the theme.

Create a perfect party theme

Choosing from routine themes may not make your party interesting. Use your creativity to design your own party theme, which is original and unique. Design a theme putting yourself in your guest’s shoes to please and inspire them.

A good party theme need not necessarily be expensive. Choose a theme that you can best manage within your budget. It’s now your turn to host a party, make it memorable using a creative and attractive theme.

Hosting a Great Party – How to be a Good Host

Friday, July 8th, 2011

Many people have an intention of hosting a memorable party but they are clueless about how to make it a reality. Here are few things which you need to consider while planning for hosting a great party.

Require excellent organizational skills

Any party is characterized by the way it is organized. Successful parties involve careful preparation, planning and execution. So, take care of everything in advance, so that there is no last minute rush.

Take time to figure out everyone to invite

Make a list of all the people you want to invite. Remember, if you forget someone, they will not forgive you. Send the invitations two weeks in advance so that the guests will have enough time to plan and block the day for your event. The guests who need to travel long distances should be informed much earlier. Also remind them few days prior to the occasion so that they don’t forget the party.

Figure out the food and the drinks

Foods and drinks, after all, are the important factors for the success of the party. Prepare the list of food items according to your party theme and your guests’ preferences. If you are planning to hire a caterer, make sure that you book in advance as many of the good ones are often booked months in advance. Discuss about your menu and the number of guests you are expecting with them.

When it comes to drinks, make sure that you are clear on the number of people drinking and what is being served. Serve appropriate and responsible quantities of alcoholic beverages. Little alcohol can make people relax and have a good time at the party. Remember not to force guests to drink if they are not interested.

Music – an important element of the party

Many people overlook the importance of music in their parties. Music helps to set and maintain the right mood of the party. Music takes away the silence during the early stages of a party. Select the music which syncs with your party theme. It helps your guests enjoy the party.

Plan to accommodate your guests’ preferences

As a good host, you should know what it takes to make your guests feel comfortable, happy and special. Know their favorite food, drinks, music, etc. to make them feel comfortable. Try to accommodate as many of your guests’ preferences as you can in everything you do for the event. If not everything, at least include as much as you can. If you are not aware of their preferences, call your guests in advance to know about their likes. It may require little extra effort but it will really make your guests happy. Remember, if you like the party and none of your guests do. It is no fun.

You can come up with new ideas like handing them their favorite colored glow sticks or glow products as party favors.

Relax and sleep well the night before

You will need all the energy you have for the party; hence it is better to sleep well through the night before the party. Remember, you need to have relaxed mind to host a great party.

Take care of your guests – all the guests not only a few

As a good host, it is your responsibility to take care of all the guests who are invited. Greet your guests at the entrance as they arrive and welcome them in. Be very hospitable and take time for everyone. Some may need more attention and others less, but don’t ignore any one. Ask them if they are having good time. If you are distributing party favors such as glow sticks, glow necklaces, bracelets, etc. make sure that everyone gets at least one and none of them is deprived of them.

Plan for the socialization of the guests

Socialization is a good way to keep the party interesting for your guests. Remember, the more they interact with people, the more they will enjoy your party. Once they get started in the party mood, they are all set. All they need is someone who has been thoughtful and can be the catalyst. Introduce people who would like to meet each other or get the people together who are interested in a same topic or share the same experience.

Enjoy the party!

You should enjoy keeping your guests happy. This is a pre-requisite for others to enjoy your event. Your pleasant appearance and behavior sets the tone of the party. Be presentable and cheerful from beginning to end of the party.

Hosting a party can be difficult and stressful task. But if you are well prepared, the event will most likely go as per plan and your guests will remember it for a long time.
