How to Make Your First Boy/Girl Party a Success
If you’ve ever been to a boy/girl party, then you know how challenging it can be to make it an amazing success. You don’t want anyone to be uncomfortable, and you definitely want everyone to have a great time. So here are some tips to pull off a fantastic party for you and all of your friends:
First, you need to decide on your invitations. To save money, you can either do an Evite, which is usually free, or create a private event on Facebook. You need to make sure all of your friends are on Facebook before you do that, however. The nice part of the Evite idea is that you can create a theme if you like. Evite has lots of different designs from which you can choose.
For your food choices, you can make it a little bit more grown up. Instead of pizza, serve pizza bagels, mini hot dogs, spinach pies, etc. All of these items can be purchased from a bulk store at a cost-effective price. For snack and candy ideas, use gummies, licorice and other candies in decorative jars or colored Chinese food take-out containers. You can even plan your food choices around a theme.
For dessert, its always fun to make an ice cream bar and allow your party goers to make their own sundaes. If you are doing a movie theme party, be sure to have popcorn in popcorn tubs and provide a variety of toppings to sprinkle on.
There are many different ideas for fun themes, depending on your crowd and budget.
If it’s a warm summer night, your movie night can be outside. This will just require the rental of a projector and screen. You can even put the ice cream bar theme with it.
If you want to go a little bit edgier, why not hire a fortune teller? This could be fun for a Halloween-themed party.
A casino night can be loads of fun too. To pull this off, you need to have a couple of people as the dealers. Instead of money, which you don’t want to use, have fun and funny prizes for the winners.
A great way to choose a fun theme is by working around the season or the holiday. They make for the easiest food and décor ideas. Whatever you choose, invite the people you enjoy hanging out with. And above all else, have a great time!
