Well, we have nearly done a full year, not far off anyways!
Plans have changed, weddings postponed and significant birthdays cancelled. We DEFINITELY did not see this coming, however, thinking about the future, I hope we have all come to realise what is truly important..
With that in mind, we need to celebrate bigger and better. We need to make the moments count. You just never know when it may be taken away
Are you planning on throwing a POST COVID PARTY? Then let's take it to the next level..
I have put together some fun party themes below, and I also happen know a really cool party planner!!
Carnival Theme - Go Big, Go Rio
Bright colours, over the top entrances to create the vibe and not forgetting a steel drum band
80's Theme - Go Retro
Some might say the best era as connected to the best pop music and fashion
You will definitely need a dancefloor, neon signage and a Ghetto Blaster for this one
IBIZA Chill Out Theme - Go Cafe Del Mar Style
Missed your holiday this year? Then Ibiza is the party to be at, so why not create a club style event. Low seating, white poseur tables and parasol lighting with lasers. Then dance until the sun comes up
Back to School Theme - Go School Uniforms
It almost felt like the school holidays lasted forever during lockdown.
Get staged backdrops with graffiti, play games ( ideally drinking games) and have your seating area set up like the canteen.
OH and don't forget a ringing bell!
Oktoberfest Theme - Go German
You basically need a garden, a marquee with rustic furniture, some picnic tables or benches and not forgetting the beers. ' Prost ' which means ' Cheers '
Black & White Theme - Go Classic
I have personally thrown a black & white party for my friends and can honestly say it was just brilliant. Its such an easy theme, everyone does make an effort, and the photos look Fab! You really cant go wrong with this one..
African Adventure Theme - Go Masai Mara
You can really go all out on the décor, make sure to include African drums, African Shield props and maybe even do a dress code of animal print or safari guides
Medieval Banquet Theme - Go Game of Thrones
Long tables, corseted entertainers or jesters and a buffet with freshly baked loaves of bread
Not forgetting the hog roast.. You must eat like Kings & Queens
Hippy Theme - Go Flower Power
I would insist on a VW camper van food cart and rainbow colour décor to really boost the 60's feel ...Peace & Love - what a lovely theme..
Hollywood Theme - Go Glitz & Glamour
Another theme I have personally done for my birthday, this one is so much fun as you can really go over the top. Red carpet entrance, Oscar trophies, paparazzi, film props, clapper boards, movie posters, dollars, black ties and ball gowns galore
A Taste of Asia Theme - Go Oriental
Magical and Mysterious. So many cultures and rich colours can create these Asian vibes with red/gold bunting, floating lanterns, Buddha shrines, dragon dancers and fire breathers!
Moroccan Theme - Go Middle East
This seems to be a firm favourite which we have catered for quite a few times. It creates a real relaxed atmosphere with mosaic tables, cushions, draping, and a candle lit setting
You can always spice it up with belly dancers or snake charmers
Breakfast at Tiffany's - Go Audrey Hepburn
This might be one just for the girls, everyone wears their little black dresses, long gloves, dark sunglasses and pearl necklaces to enjoy an evening of elegance
Tea Party Theme - Go Vintage
Keep the numbers small and cosy. See my website for the gorgeous Winchester Duchess China crockery and make sure you serve clotted cream as well as jam with your scones
Fun little favours are always a winner too. Best of British
There is hopefully a theme here that jumps out at you, and please don't hesitate to get in touch if you need any help setting one up
Let's hope that 'eventually' at some point in 2021 we can Celebrate. Together.
