Party Idea #3: A murder mystery party isn’t very popular among teens. But the theme idea is unique and very fun to create. As a teen this party theme is fun and exciting. The murder mystery party is like a movie script being played out. Each guest will be assigned a character. The characters in this theme will have a role. For example, there will need to be a killer, plot, motive and a victim. To be really creative with this theme, the menu can be related somehow. For instance the menu can be the reason for the victim’s death. It gives the mystery a more thrilling aspect. A simple birthday cake with tombstones or something scary and dreary is a must have.
One more aspect to consider is the site of the party. Throwing the party at home will help to keep the cost down, but it will also require more work when you consider party prep and post party clean up. Having the party elsewhere might cost a little more, but because there are fewer responsibilities before and during the party, you can enjoy the party a little more. Outdoor parties require a lot more work simply because you will need to consider alternate plans should the weather not cooperate. In the event the weather is warm, you may also need to develop cooler, more shaded areas for relief from the heat and sun.
Hosting a baby shower is a responsibility and honor, especially if it is for a first time mother. Traditionally, a close friend (or group of friends) are chosen to host a baby shower. However, today it is often very acceptable for family members to help host a baby shower. If you are not sure who should host the shower, ask the mom to be and close family members what they think. The main focus should be not on what is most “proper,” rather everyone should be focused on making this celebration enjoyable and memorable for the mom to be. If you are the one hosting the baby shower, be sure to be thoughtful in all of your party planning decisions, keeping in mind what they soon to be mom would enjoy most and let that guide your party decisions.
You have to develop a timeline of some sort and ensure that it is followed strictly during the event planning process. You have to keep everything listed. Be ready and prepared to face any interruptions that could occur. Do not think that you can face anything by yourself. It is nearly impossible. You will have tog et someone else reliable enough to help you as well. You will need another person to share some of the burden of preparation for the event. You need not necessarily do everything personally by yourself unless there is absolutely no one else who can do the job.
Dance video games are another great video gaming party to throw for your kids. This craze has really taken off. Some companies offer the dancing platforms for rent. You can have the actual video game units in your own home or backyard so that your kids can have the actual game!
Thirdly you should double check the speakers and the other performers. You may plan an event or other function where the entertainment performs perfectly, but the performance is not relevant to the event. Try finding out information about the performer and what type of event they would be perfect for. Having a reference is an easy way of finding out about a band or singer before agreeing to book them.
Limit the party length. In this case, less is more. Plan enough time for games, cake and fun. But don’t go overboard. If the festivities go too long and the activities run out, the guests will be restless. They’ll still want to be entertained and your child may not know how to handle them.
