Planning a party can be exciting. However, it will be more fun if you decide to choose among the many ideas for birthday themes that will surely beat the regular event we have gotten used to. A successful event is not only dependent on the camaraderie of the guests and the food, but also the uniqueness and entertainment that is provided by the topic the event is based on.
A Luau celebration is one of the most popular party ideas that usually make the guests eager to attend. Send customized luau invitations or send fliers that may be purchased from your local store. To add a twist, try sending flower bracelets together with the invitation (which they can wear on the day of the party) for your friends to mean that ‘you mean business.’ Do not forget to make it clear that guests should wear Hawaiian get-ups such as hula skirts for the girls and Hawaiian tops for the boys.
Decorating your place is an important part of creating a successful bash. Even if your place does not have real palm trees, you can just rent plastic palm trees or inflatable palm trees to make a Hawaiian atmosphere. Celebrating the luau way also means being festive so lighting up the whole place is a must.
The event also would not be complete without leis. For practical purposes, you may just create the leis yourself by stringing up flowers from your garden or some wild flowers then adorn the neck of each guest as they enter, then greet them with a warm smile and ‘Aloha!’. For entertainment, you may also hire a reggae band or just play canned island music to reach the effect you want. Playing the necessary party games like the limbo game and the hula hoop spin-off is a good idea.
Another fun idea for a birthday blowout is to have a Hollywood party. Some people might think that having this kind of celebration will cost a lot of money; the truth though is that you can pull this off in an affordable manner.
For invitations, you can try using gold paper or a plain paper jazzed up with gold stars, better if they are the glittery kind. Place the needed information such as the date and the place and then sprinkle in Hollywood confetti into the envelope and voila! The invitations will be good to go.
As for the decorations, you just have to make sure that the venue is transformed into an ‘Awards Night’ event with a red carpet, spotlights, and gold and silver decors hanging to give people the feeling that they are really Hollywood stars. Make the gathering more fun by coming up with awards, calling the winners up on the stage to make a speech, etc. Of course, instructing the guests to wear their evening gowns and tuxes is vital to the success of the event. Do not forget the need to hire photographers for that glamorous feel.
Spice up celebrations with birthday themes meant to wow both the guests and the birthday celebrants and make the party an affair to remember.
