Planning a party sounds fun and exciting, until you start putting the pieces of the puzzle together and discover that there are way too many details to take care of. From finding the right venue to choosing the food, music and theme, the process can be very hectic and, by the time the party starts, you might feel too exhausted to enjoy the fruits of your labor. Here are some ideas that can help you break the routine and surprise your guests.
Rent a party bus
Does renting party buses Toronto sound too fancy? Don’t worry, party bus rentals are getting cheaper and you can now accommodate small groups into fun and luxurious buses that can take passengers to their destination like VIPs! Of course, these buses aren’t the actual location of the party, but you can use them for transport between locations and as a way of warming up the atmosphere. Guests can get to know each other on the way to the party location and the fact that some companies also offer complementary drinks can only be good news! Besides, if you want to impress someone, than paying for their party bus ride is an excellent idea!
Choose a party theme
Thematic parties are a perfect way to make things more interesting, especially if you feel like you’ve seen it all. There are many options that you can choose from, such as classic 20s parties, rock ’n roll nights and costume parties. If you’re looking for something to go with the party bus idea, then try recreating prom! It’s a fun way to relive those days, meet old high school friends and feel young again. To make things funnier, make a playlist of the songs that were popular when you graduated and wear the clothes that were trending back then. Some even go as far as getting the haircuts they graduated, but this can lead to some pretty cringe-worthy moments, so we don’t recommend that. Obviously, the theme depends on what kind of guests are invited, so don’t go crazy with the theme if you feel it could be inappropriate.
Plan activities in advance
Sometimes, parties turn out to be great without you even trying. Other times, you have to make some effort to get things started. To make sure your party doesn’t have awkward silences or dead moments, plan some activities before, preferably related to the theme of the party. This way, you know for sure that you have a backup plan in case someone gets bored. Besides, you cannot expect a large group of people who might not know each other well to “click” at your party, nor make them have the time of their lives just by talking to each other. Planning activities such as games and movie nights is a great way to help them know each other and unwind. If you don’t know what activities to plan, you can always ask them in advance what they would like!
