Your birthday is coming up and you want to do something special this time around. Sure you’ve dined out or went to a special spot in the last years but it’s about time you did something different. You want to celebrate it with friends and make it a party to remember.
It’s a great time to be alive and it’s only fitting to spend it with your loved ones with a bang! They are grateful to have you and are looking forward to continue to create more memories and share their lives with you. A party is an awesome way to show gratitude for the life you’ve been given and those that you share it with.
Here are a few things you can start with:
Parties are even more memorable with themes. Think of a favorite cartoon character or anything that holds special to you over the years. Maybe a rustic bohemian party with bulb lights? A theme that not only you will get to enjoy but your invited guests as well! It should be a shared experience. The ambiance will be more lively and connected.
It is important to also consider the place the party is going to be held. The location, if it is accessible and easy to go to. If it’s too far, it can discourage people from coming. The space should be enough to accommodate your guests and not crowd the areas. A free flowing space is what you should aim for.
Sending out invitations can be time-consuming if you’re doing it old school, via card invitations. Well, you can do both―online and cards. Tangible invitation cards has a kind of personal touch to it. It makes the recipient feel special and included. Adding in digital material to the mix makes it even more extra that you went out of your way to not only mail them the invite but email it as well. You can check out invitation card ideas here.
Whatever you’ll be serving should somehow match your theme. If you’re going for a sea or sailor theme then highlights of your menu should be seafood―unless of course there’s a need for a separate menu for those who might be allergic. It completes the party theme experience. And you should not forget about the cake! A cake that represents how you’ve come so far relative to your theme. Maybe a milestone of some sorts with a dash of funny moments of your life. It doesn’t have to be super huge. You can throw in some themed cupcakes on the side too.
Anyone who has gone DIY with parties know that getting everything done is like needing ten hands. It won’t hurt if you opt for an event rental to help you make sure your party is a success. It’s all about priorities and what you can do on your own and what you can entrust other with. You’ll breathe easy knowing an experienced team is backing you up from start to finish.
No one wants to hear a deafening silence pierce the air. Set the mood right with a great playlist to blast through those speakers! Prepare great songs to play pre, mid and post party. It’s a good idea to build up the atmosphere by playing it smart with a song choice. Avoid too trendy or mainstream tunes. Well, maybe you can play some if you plan on doing party games or a dance off. You’ll be surprised that your guests will want to know the songs you played.
What way to end the party but with a party favor for your guests’ presence―for making your life fulfilling and enjoyable. After all, your friends and family are a part of what brought you to your nth year. A simple home-made cookie, or succulent or a jar of candies are great. Something that will remind them of how they enjoyed celebrating your birthday.
Birthdays are celebrated once a year and making it a day to remember can bring in a positive change. So, hope that gave you a few things to think about. Enjoy organizing your special day!
