There’s nothing I love more than a good old knees up. Parties are the perfect excuse to go all out, get dolled up and make some incredible memories. When it comes to planning parties, I won’t pretend I’m an expert. I will, however, tell you a few things I’ve come across that I think would make a party go from 0-100 real quick!
Pick a Fun Theme
A theme will give everybody a sort of guideline as to what to expect when they show up at your party. If you’re having a tea party, that’ll remind people they should probably dress in their classiest outfit and refrain from necking too much wine before they arrive. If you’re having a 90s raver style bash, then everybody will know they can get as messy as they like. Pick a theme that excites you! You don’t necessarily have to have fancy dress, you could just carry the theme through the decor, food, and other party elements.
Choose an Awesome Venue
The venue will make a big difference to the atmosphere of your party. Make sure that people will be able to get to it easily, and that you’ll be able to fit everybody in the venue. You don’t want to have the police come and shut you down for being a fire hazard, although that probably would make you sound really cool.
Make Your Own Playlist
Instead of letting a DJ play the Macarena all night, make your own playlist. Give the DJ a list of songs you’d love, and songs you definitely don’t want. Include genres, artists, the lot. If you want to save money, you don’t need a DJ at all. Simply make a CD or Spotify playlist and make sure it’s long enough to last the duration of your shindig!
Come up With Your own Yummy Cocktail
Why not create your own tasty cocktail especially for the occasion? Make it the best thing anybody has ever tasted and you should be really popular. Better yet, put on a free bar. It’ll be bloody expensive, but everyone will love you for getting them so smashed – that’s just how people work in 2015!
Hire Some Badass Transport
Want to show up at your party in style? You need badass transport. Limo hire is an option, but the sky’s the limit here. Why not show up in a helicopter? Or a bus? Or a fire engine? A quick search online and you’ll get all kinds of badass transport ideas.
Your guests will more than likely get hungry after a while, what with all of that alcohol. However, most party food can be messy, and you’ll be the one that has to clean up the place the next day. To minimise mess and fuss, order pizza. Everybody loves pizza. Order a few different toppings to keep people happy and your guests should be very grateful!
Choreograph Your Own Dance
You might not want to do this, but it’ll be one for the memory bank! Get your team/squad/wolfpack together and choreograph and awesomely-hilarious yet mesmerising dance routine. Perform it once you strut into the joint and watch your guest’s reaction. It could be like that dance from scene from White Chicks or like something you’d see on Ashley Banjo’s Secret Street Crew.
