Birthday parties can sometimes be a bit of a conundrum. Of course you want your loved one to have the best time ever – but how exactly do you go about that? Here are some tips to help you…
Pick A Theme
A themed party often makes it a whole lot easier when it comes to picking out decor. If you’re in a party store then you might be overwhelmed by just how much there is, so it’s a good idea to make sure that you don’t get too messy by picking out a certain theme. It doesn’t have to be anything overly specific – your guests might not want to dress up as sea creatures or Disney princes, after all – but going for a couple of colours or something that your loved one enjoys like football, rock music or the beach will help you decide how to decorate your venue.
Go For Easy Food
Of course the food you choose should depend on what sort of party it is, but unless there are plenty of chairs and tables and places to sit down then it’s always a good idea to focus on finger food like pizza slices, miniature hot dogs, sliders and sandwiches – or hors d’oeuvres if you’re feeling a little more fancy than that! If you aren’t a great cook then it’s a good idea to hire catering specialists to make the whole day a little easier on yourself. But remember that you can always pick out the cake yourself!
Consider Your Loved One’s Preferences
Even if you’re the sort of person who absolutely loves to be the centre of attention it’s important to remember that not everyone feels the same – in fact, considering the preferences of the person whose birthday it is are absolutely key to making it a good night for everyone. If they don’t like to be looked at by a lot of people then they probably won’t enjoy having to open all their gifts in front of everyone, but if they love to be the centre of everyone’s focus then you could get them to prepare a little speech to thank all their guests for coming. Focusing on what your loved one wants is the best way to having a perfect party.
Go For A Playlist
A lot of people think that they need to hire a DJ to have a party worth remembering but that isn’t actually true at all. In fact, a lot of the time DJs play music that you might not really love – no one wants to hear five hours of thumping techno or sappy pop music that no one there actually likes. If you make your own playlist then you get to control the music yourself – and you also get to skip or add songs depending on what the general mood of the room is. It means that you can add your loved one’s favourite songs by their favourite musicians, songs from your high school or college days or whenever you met, and skip any of the current stuff that you just aren’t into. Creating your own playlist is the perfect way to dance the night away.
