The summer of 2021 is set to be a special one for parties and social events, as family and friends who have been apart for months can meet up at last. If you are planning a big occasion this year, you will want to make sure it is a memorable one. Here are a few ideas to help things go with a swing!
Plan some ice-breaker activities
The first hour or so may be a little muted, as everyone settles in and gets used to being around each other once again. To create the right atmosphere from the beginning, plan some mutual games or activities to get everybody talking. However, don’t force people to participate, as this will send some guests running for the kitchen!
Choose a great theme
Everybody loves the chance to dress up, and be a different version of themselves for a while! You could choose a retro theme from your favourite era, such as the 1920s Art Deco glamour, or the cheesy pop and dance music of the 70s or 80s. Other favourites include a Hollywood movie theme, or simply create a tropical summery vibe whatever the weather!
Have some entertainment
If the event is big enough, you will need to source some form of entertainment. Even at a smaller gathering, music and a dancing area will be a basic requirement! Take some requests from guests beforehand for their favourite party tracks, so the host or DJ can have them lined up and ready to get everyone grooving.
Create a social media page
Build up the anticipation beforehand with a social media site where guests can chat and catch up with each other, and upload photos to after the party. If you would like to hire a deluxe photo booth in the UK to create professional quality images of your event, please contact us today.
