We’re only at the beginning of the year, but chances are your social calendar is already filling up with birthdays and parties. You might be hosting one or two yourself. Whether it’s your birthday or your besties’, we’ve got some amazing ideas to help you all celebrate in style.
When it comes to a party, it’s all about the lights. They set the mood, and they illuminate the main event. One of the best things about lights is they change. You can crank them up for something exciting, or have them low for a soft, romantic effect. There are some great new LED neon lights that can add some energy to any party. Then why not finish the night off with the lights and sounds of an incredible fireworks display? Light your own, or order a professional technician.
Music can also set the mood. You can install a Bluetooth speaker system all over your house, your venue, or even your garden. This means the music keeps on pumping as you move around from room to room. Pick your playlist from your phone or your laptop, or you can even stream from the internet or a digital radio station. Alternatively, hire a great DJ to play the tracks you really want to party to.
Food + Drinks
If you are hiring caterers, be sure to check their selection menu. You should also let them know if you think anyone will be attending with a severe allergy. Servers or waiting staff can help take the pressure off you at a party, and it can also save you the hassle of finding clean glasses when you’re trying to socialize.
No birthday is complete without a few gifts. If it’s your birthday, why not register a gift list so you can be sure to get some things that you really want? Many guests find this easier than guessing what to bring. Not all birthday boys and girls choose to open their presents during the party, so be sure you have somewhere safe to store them all until you can get them home. Of course, if you can tell the gifts are food or drinks, you can always crack them open to share.
Performers can range from dancers, musicians or even artists. The idea is to entertain your guests and make them feel comfortable.
Birthdays will always be something worth celebrating, and hosting a big bash is a great way to say congratulations too. The parties that are most memorable are the ones that appear so effortless. You don’t always have to hire a planner or coordinator, but it can certainly save you a lot of time and hassle. If you are managing everything yourself, see if you can rope in some help from family and friends.
