  1. Make your invitations special. Anyone can send a text or a Facebook notice about a celebration, but if you want to set the tone for your event, make an effort to create a special invitation that your guests will love. If you put some creativity and innovative ideas to work, those who are invited will certainly want to come and participate in the rest of the event just to see what you have planned.
  2. Have you considered making a theme for your party? Once you pick a theme, the rest of the party becomes easy to handle. From decorations to food to entertainment, you can efficiently carry the theme of your preference throughout the entire event. Make it fun, entertaining, and something that you know your guests will enjoy.
  3. Include an element of uniqueness and surprise for your party. You may want to host a treasure hunt, feature wigs that attendees can wear, or have a band that brings back all of the songs that were popular in your younger days. Whatever you decide to do, keep it a secret and surprise your guests with the result when they arrive.
  4. Ask your guests to participate. Whether they rent costumes, don glasses and vintage clothing, or prepare a short film to wish your honourees a happy anniversary, getting your guests involved adds to the excitement of your party. It brings all of your guests closer together and can be a fun way to share memories from days gone by.
  5. Stick to one colour for all of your decorations. If you’re serving cake or punch and hanging lights around the room, you should make them all red. Stage a sophisticated gathering with the special touches that you add with your colour selection; you may want to use your favourite colour or simply one that enhances your theme, but you’ll find that one colour makes things much more interesting and easy to handle.
  6. Remember that photos are always intriguing, especially at a party. Having a picture booth where your guests can pose with each other, just like you did when you were kids, can add to the excitement of your party. Visit a website like, where you can rent a booth that takes pictures of your guests; this will also give you a way to furnish them with a souvenir to take home. This will bring back a lot of memories and add to the fun that each of your guests will have.

You can make your party the talk of the town with a little attention to detail and some special features that aren’t always seen at celebrations.
