Everybody seems to love a party, and as there are so many things to celebrate chances are you attend a couple of events each month. Have you ever noticed that no matter how much fun you have at these parties and celebrations, it is impossible to not notice that the same themes, food, and music seem to pop up over and over? From Agadoo on the playlist at a wedding disco, to photo booths at a birthday bash, the scope for celebrating is massively under-exploited.
If you are planning something to mark any kind of special occasion, why not be the one to ring the changes? Although events at times like Easter, Christmas and Halloween rely on, and work best with, traditional activities and experiences, there are hundreds of future christenings, wedding anniversaries, retirement, milestone birthday celebrations or even backyard bbq’s ahead that can be made extra special with just a little planning and the desire to look beyond the usual options.
By tackling three of the main features of any celebration or party you can easily elevate your future event from fun to spectacular, and all for minimal outlay and effort.
Provide Some Great Entertainment
There’s no need to cancel the disco if that would spark a mutiny, but you can carve out some time to offer something as an extra or alternative; and the non-dancers will love you forever. Karaoke machines can be hired for an evening, or you could set up a DIY cocktail making session – ideally with an experienced bartender as a guide. Hire an indoor bouncy castle designed for all ages, play BINGO, (with lots of silly/jokey gifts for the winners), or do both!
Get a Personalized Cake
Most events have one or two people who are the stars of the show. It could be a couple celebrating their engagement, wedding or anniversary, a child officially becoming an adult, a baby who has just been named, or a new retiree. Personalized cakes make any event extra special, especially when they taste as good as those made by bakerdays. You get to choose the size, recipe (including gluten and dairy free options), colors, decorations and personal message, guaranteeing the perfect sweet celebration treat for everyone.
Give Out a Goodie Bag as Guests Leave
Who says party bags are just for kids’ parties? Surprise and delight your guests with a themed gift as they leave. There are lots available online to order, and some items can be personalized if you want to, but goodie bags don’t have to be expensive or complicated to be effective. It’s absolutely fine to make your own with a few simple items that reflect the theme of the event.
Spending time with friends and family is always something to celebrate, and organizing an event to mark a special occasion in their lives provides the opportunity to celebrate their uniqueness, with thoughtfully chosen entertainment, surprise gifts, and a cake that is exclusively designed for them. Parties really don’t get any better than that.
