Although summer is coming to a close, we’d like to take a moment to reflect on some of the best parties that the period brought with it. Most of these parties had nothing in common, but they cut across various celebratory territories, including weddings, graduations, dinner parties, surprise parties, weekend parties, etc. It must be noted, however, that although these parties are targeted at niche groups, they still manage to retain appeal to people across all social stratifications, age groups, and interests.
What Makes Party Accessories Important?
The most boring party idea could be transformed into a smashing hit just by the implementation of various designs, quirks, and decorations into the party’s blueprint. You could gather five random people with no identifiable shared interests in a room. Within five minutes of interaction, they would likely find out that they do not have much in common, and things would get awkward pretty quick. Throw in some party accessories, however – some music, a few games, avenues for activities, and so on – and these people would warm up to each other in no time.
Examples Of Accessories You Can Include In Your Party
When picking accessories, creativity is key. You could immensely level up the aura of the party with the subtlest of introductions – and you could do this with the littlest amount of effort and capital sunk in. In the list below, we are going to explore a few options you could run through. It’s important to remember that you could mix it up. You don’t have to limit yourself to any one accessory; in fact, your guests would be grateful for the fact that you have chosen to switch it up and include as many layers into your party as possible. A few of these options include;
- Fairy lights
With a name coined from the characteristic circular but minute glow that looks like it’s being emitted from a fairy’s aura, these lights are a popular choice for people in different party settings – from Christmas to new year, to weddings and even formal events. They are perfect for outdoor parties and give the premises a warm glow in the evening. You might want to explore this option at an outdoor wedding reception or a birthday party. The fantasy and presence of thousands of tiny lights hanging on nigh-invisible strings is just the romantic touch you need. What’s more, you would have fun decorating because there are so many combinations and decorative patterns you can try out as you go on.
You didn’t think you could have a successful party without music, did you? As important as your dj friends are to the vibe of the moment, the unsung hero in this construction are your speakers. Thanks to the advancement of technology and the recognition of music as integral entertainment, we now have speakers that are as tiny as a paperback, but still loud and rich enough to bring the house down. Never fall into the trap of being nonchalant about the importance of a deep speaker at your party.
Another party feature that makes parties more interesting than others is Karaoke. Yeah, yeah, we know it was invented over fifty years ago and that society has apparently moved on from it in favour of other newer forms of entertainment; never knock the experience, though. There are only a few forms of entertainment that are as charming (and traumatic) as watching your friends and family screech off-key to different songs.
- Special effects
If you want to approach your party execution with chutzpah, consider including some special effects into the mix. Nothing as elaborate as green screens or stunt doubles, of course, but little things like sparklers and smoke machines would make your party seem like something out of a movie. Imagine having a smoke machine at your wedding and having a slow dance with your new partner on what seems to be clouds. It would make a great memory and a stunning moment in your videography that you can always play back whenever you feel sentimental. Pyrotechnic sparklers, on the other hand, would give your guests something to be impressed at and would raise the general feeling of festivity on the premises. They can be used in weddings, bonfire parties, and informal events. You can get these items for hire here.
- Cards, chips, and games
Having cards and chips at your party is an introduction of a whole new facet into the mix… and if you and your guests are enterprising enough, you could take things to a whole new level (we would never outrightly support gambling, though). This could be a good time to see which of your friends and family are charming criminals and if you’re lucky, you could earn some money for yourself. You could also introduce a game console and set up a tournament for all guests – winners would take home a prize, and losers would be mandated to wear embarrassing costumes or something similar. When setting this arrangement up, a rule of thumb is to pick a game that you all would enjoy. The point of this is to ensure everyone is having fun.
- Photo booths
A photo booth is one of those things that you just can never go wrong with, and it would fit easily into any type of party you have. There are numerous variations of this party effect; for your party, it is easy to find photo booth hires anywhere you look. A photo booth is an extremely interactive way of taking pictures. As opposed to the usual individualistic selfies that not everyone would be able to partake in, a photo booth would get the whole gang in on the draw; it would give you all the opportunity to take the wackiest pictures without wondering how everyone would fit in the frame. If you have ever been to a party where one was used, you know that parties with photo booths are always worth attending.
