7. Think outside the box
Although traditional events (like barbecues and pool parties) can be fun, thinking outside of the box can take your event to the next level. “Always add an element of surprise for your party guests,” Yu suggests. He says that spicing it up, even in just a small way, can create far more ambiance. For example, he suggests playing a unique type of music, exploring a new culture through cuisine, or adding another course to the meal.
Another idea is to create a themed event. La Maison de Fete recently planned a 90’s themed party as well as a 50th birthday “white-out” – both were fun for the hosts and the guests, who dressed accordingly. Regardless of how you choose to distinguish your event, when you add fun, distinctive elements, yours will be an event everyone remembers.
