Organising a party each year becomes more and more complicated as you get older. Gone are the days of a simple drink in a bar with your best friends; birthday parties are getting bigger and better by the minute and you’re ready to get involved. Whether you’re looking to host a secret garden party or you fancy an indoor boogie there are a whole host of ideas which will make your next birthday brilliant. From delectable nibbles to original themes, it is time to go all out with a sensational celebration.
Choosing the best snacks for your party is probably one of the most important decisions you will make; let’s face it everybody loves to see food at a celebration. You don’t have to be a gourmet chef to have the most delicious food in town either. Look into local catering services that can do the hard work for you. From succulent sandwiches to divine drinks you won’t have to worry about your guests going hungry.
Pulling together a guest list can be daunting task when you’re organising a party. You have the ultimate fear of missing somebody really important and offending people in your friendship group. Don’t stress about inviting the whole world, only extend an invite to the people you truly want to spend the day or night partying with. Eliminate your worries by getting a friend on board with you; she might remember somebody you were about to forget!
The location of your birthday bash needs to be suited to your personality. If you’re an activity lover you might want to set the scene outdoors; if you’re a party animal perhaps a hired venue with a DJ would be your best option. Don’t be persuaded into doing something you’re not completely happy with. Obviously you want to get opinions from your best friends but the ultimate decision lies with you. Choose a place which is easy for you to get to as well as your potential guests. There is nothing more stressful than being invited to a party in the middle of nowhere and having to make complicated transport arrangements.
Think of a novel theme for your party; from 70’s groove to zoo project glitz and glam. The theme totally relies on your personal preferences so don’t be swayed into choosing something that doesn’t really flow with you. If you just want an excuse to dress up in heels then consider a red carpet theme, which leaves the options for the dress code a wide open for your guests.
Seek out the state-of-the-art snacks which appeal to you and use your imagination to invite and introduce your friends to your party theme. You don’t have to spend a fortune to create a memorable celebration for your friends and family. You could even club together with your bestie and have a join party day, which will cut the costs in half for both of you. Be sure to have fun when you’re organising and leave your stresses at the door.
