How to Plan An Awesome Party (With Best Recommendations)

Ever been to a party where you felt awkward and hung around by yourself in a corner? Erase those memories forever and learn to plan an awesome party that involves everyone in the fun! We give you the top recommendations for each aspect of your party that are guaranteed to bring a memorable party. 

1. Theme

The theme of the party is an essential hype element. It gives your participants something to look forward to! Try not to make it overly complicated if you have elders or make it so simple that the youngsters are unable to flaunt their creativity. When it comes to icebreaker topics, the choice of outfit also serves as an excellent conversation starter. Lastly, round it off with an award presentation for the best-dressed outfit! This will motivate your guests to return next time with even more creative costumes.

2. Location

Half of a party’s vibes depend on the venue! Is there anything to do at the event space or are we forced to create our own entertainment? Furthermore, you have to consider the accessibility, capacity and parking space of the venue. As such, we have some recommendations for a great party!

4. Party Games you can play 

Whether it is a corporate milestone celebration or a birthday party, party games are a must to inject some fun and laughter. 

  • Minute to Win It Games

Minute to Win It games are really popular. Just as the name describes, they are timed games with a quick objective.

This is Stack Attack! The objective is to stack the cups quickly into a pyramid and collapse them all back into a single cup! 

Otherwise, music lovers should play Name That Song! Play 5-second snippets of different songs and the team that guesses the most, wins! 

  • Diversity Bingo

Create a bingo sheet with grids showing various statements that correspond to different members in the group. Have them try to tick off all the grids in the bingo sheet by mingling around and getting someone to sign off the grids when it applies to them. This is a fun and interesting way for your guests to get to know each other better!

5. Door Gifts

If your budget allows for it, have some door gifts for your guests that will surely cement your party as one of the best parties. 

  • Personalised cards

Create small cards with a picture and some kind words reflecting on your friendship or thoughts to them. Friends and family will definitely appreciate this heartwarming gesture.

  • Surprise Egg Goodies Bags
