Sometimes, when planning to host a party, whether it’s for a special occasion such as a birthday, anniversary, graduation, or just for fun, one may feel the need to make it an extra memorable and enjoyable experience. Here are some tried and tested ideas that you can try.
- Basic Themed party
Simply pick a theme, be it pirates, magical wizards and witches, New York 30s Jazz era, the glitz and glam of Vegas or Big Dollar online casino and organise everything from the decorations, food, music, and dress-code accordingly. Be sure to notify your guests well before-hand though, so that they have ample time to get their costumes in order.
- Outdoor party
Host a barbecue, picnic, or garden party. Take advantage of good weather and enjoy the great sunny outdoors. Perhaps consider finding a particularly beautiful location or venue to make it that much more memorable.
- Games night
Host a fun and entertaining games night. It could be a single game like poker or blackjack. Or perhaps a variety of different games. Social party games are always a great option. As well as board games, and for the younger generations, involving video games can also be huge fun.
- Movie night
The old classic movie night is often a winner. Get a bunch of great movies, or series, you and your friends all enjoy, get a bunch of popcorn and snacks, and have a good old movie marathon into the wee hours of the morning.
- Cocktail party
Host a cocktail party with a variety of interesting and tasty drinks for guests to enjoy. They can even be non-alcoholic cocktails if you want. It’s really about the atmosphere, which you can supplement with some good music and tasty snacks.
- Potluck party
Have guests bring a dish to share and have a potluck dinner party. Potluck parties are great way for friends and community to get together, share with one another, strengthening old friendships and perhaps making new ones.
- Murder Mystery party
Host a murder mystery party with a group of friends. It may seem a bit old-school and goofy, but if you do it right, and your guests are willing, it can turn into a memorable night of intrigue, mystery, and hilarious fun.
- Karaoke party
Another classic winner. Setting up karaoke parties is super easier nowadays, with all you’re your favourite songs likely readily available on streaming platforms such as YouTube.
- Sports party
Host a sports party and with a variety of entertaining sports games for guests to play. Or perhaps, if you and your friends all support a certain team, plan it for the day of a big match, so you can all watch together.
- DIY party
For more gentle souls, you could have a DIY party, where guests can make their own crafts or projects.
