Are you looking for ways for your guests to have FUN at your next event?
Here are some simple ideas to make sure your guests not only look forward to your party, but have a great time while they are there:
1. You’ve made the first step already!
Committing to do something fun and looking for professional help sets you up for success.
2. Pick a theme for your party.
Themes are a fun way for people to get involved in an event. The guests with a lot of spirit will really have fun with it – maybe even dressing the part! Your more shy guests will still have fun and “accidentally” get wrapped up in the spirit.
For example a recently popular theme is “Totally Awesome 80’s Party”. Invest in a professional DJ that has a great 80’s Karaoke collection, and can play some great interactive games with the crowd. Add some turquoise and purple UPLIGHTING around the room to give it that radical look, and top if off with some CLASSIC ARCADE GAMES like PacMan, Frogger, Foosball and Donkey Kong.
3. Some guests like the sidelines
There are always some guests that like to watch others have fun. Have a format that allows guests to watch others be directly involved in the fun. A GAME SHOW is a perfect format for this. Your guests that dream of being on stage get their chance and the rest of the crowd can enjoy the hilarity of the whole experience. A great Game Show Host will allow your guests to be the stars, and will have a format that allows for a lot of participation from the crowd.
4. Fun, flexible, upbeat, constant music
Play it at an appropriate volume. Bands can be fun, but an Entertainment Director, aka DJ, can play the kind of music YOU want played at a volume level that is appropriate for your party. A professional DJ will be able to emcee your party with as much or as little interaction as you would like, and they don’t need to take breaks like a band.
5. Looking for an idea for spring/summer?
How about a Night at the Derby/Races. Warm weather is race weather and guests love to watch horse racing. A fun host can teach your guests the basics, and get some great interaction with the crowd. Serve some mint-juleps, have an award for the best derby-hat and you’ve got a winner!
6. Speaking of winners…
CASINO PARTIES are simply the most consistently fun kind of entertainment you can have for any size and type of group. Fun, friendly dealers in black-tie and tuxedo vests look authentic, but really they are more entertainers than actual dealers. These outgoing professionals are great at teaching people that don’t know how to play and making sure everyone wins big and has a bunch of fun. A company that has a great reputation, professional equipment and fun, friendly dealers can’t be beat for a great time for all ages and personalities.
7. What do people love pictures of?
… themselves with their friends! A Photo Booth is a simple addition to any kind of party. Unlimited, instant, free photos of single individuals or as groups as large as 18! All the prints can have your logo or a sponsors logo. Pair a slideshow with a big selection of props; boas, crazy glasses, funny signs, and wigs for a great time. The planner also gets a thumb drive with every single picture taken!
