5 Inventive Party Ideas To Wow Your Guests

Everyone loves a party, it’s an opportunity to let your hair down, socialise with friends and create lasting memories. If you would like your party to stand out from the crowd and are looking for some inventive party ideas to wow your guests read on….

#1 Posh Cocktails

The thought of making cocktails can seem a little intimidating, but it doesnt need to be. Cocktails are all about the presentation; all you need are some kilner jar glasses, colourful straws, fresh fruit and some fun extras such as edible glitter. Make a simple classic highball cocktail such as a gin and tonic over ice, and serve with all trimmings.

If you don’t fancy making the drinks, let your guests make their own. Have a bubbly bar, where guests can come up with their own champagne or prosecco cocktails. Have dishes full of fruit purees, lavender sprigs, citrus twists and flavored ice cubes that can be spooned into glasses of bubbly.

#2 Theme

A good theme will take your party from a regular gathering to an event that your friends will be talking about for years to come. From a simple colour scheme to a 70’s disco extravaganza, there are so many themes to choose from. There are lots of online and high street party supplies retailers, who will stock decorations and tableware that will match your chosen theme. You can ask your guests to come dressed up or you could make up your own dressing up box filled with props for people to wear. Themed parties are great photo opportunities and provide endless laughs. 

#3 Candy Buffet

As well as sausage rolls, pineapples sticks and everything else you’d expect to find a beige buffet, why not also offer up a colourful candy buffet? Adults will love this just as much as the children. Buying sweets in bulk is the cheapest way to do it and this will save you valuable time, meaning all you need to do is decide how to display everything. To present your candy buffet, fill up big glass Victorian sweet jars and bowls with your chosen sweets and have retro candy stripe bags ready for your guests to fill with their favourite party sweets. If you want to go the extra mile you can even personalise the wrappers (like our Birthday Love Hearts) to make it exclusive to your special occasion.

#4 Anticipate Their Needs

We all know how it feels the morning after a party, so your guests will appreciate a cute emergency kit for the morning after. Include all the hangover essentials paracetamol, bottled water, energy bars etc to get them back on their feet after a night of celebrating!

#5 Say Cheese

It’s inevitable that people will be taking photos on their phones and posting them on social media. So, having a photo booth is the perfect way to capture silly, candid memories. Have lots of props like hats, glasses and stick on moustaches for guests to wear and create a hashtag for the party, so you can all check out everyone’s photos the following day. Laughs are guaranteed!
