We all love to party and have fun with our friends and family, but sometimes events can be bit of a chore. We eat the same foods, do the same things for entertainment and see the same faces. Eventually, it’ll just get boring and we’ll probably stop going to as many parties as we used to — but that’s no fun! I love going to parties, and blogger events are the best. I’ve been inspired by some of the fab blogger events I’ve been to recently and have come up with a list of things you can do to turn a party into a truly memorable occasion. Here are some tips for doing away with those boring generic parties – spice it up with a couple of these fun ideas.
Make it an occasion
There’s nothing wrong with looking for a reason to have a party. Perhaps you have an upcoming anniversary, maybe it’s just an end-of-the-month party, or perhaps there’s a big sports game coming up soon. Whether or not you watch sports or care that it’s the end of the month, that doesn’t mean it’s not an occasion to have a party! When you plan an event to coincide with something else, it’s usually easier for the people you invite to remember it and, despite being something trivial, it could turn into a much more meaningful party.
Theme your parties
Always try to mix it up and have parties with different themes. Maybe you could have a fancy dress party one week and then a more formal dinner party another night. Perhaps you could theme a child’s party around their favourite superhero or cartoon character, and maybe you could have a cheeky night in with your friends to watch a film, play some games or do something creative together. Perhaps you could create some DIY neon signs like my ‘Candy’ one above to add to a colourful theme, or perhaps invest in some props to decorate your home with.
