Parking signs, bins and present storage areas can prevent a birthday party becoming chaotic
A birthday party is incredibly fun but can also get a bit chaotic unless you plan ahead of time. It's easy to put a few things in place before the event which will save you time during and after the birthday party. Choose a birthday party venue with sufficient parking and put up parking signs so guests know where they can and cannot park. Set up an area, such as a table or a room that won't be in use, where people can place the birthday gifts they bring. This keeps all the gifts together and safely out of the way so they won't get damaged by having drinks spilt on them or by being knocked off surfaces. To save time when it comes to cleaning up, have a few rubbish bins placed throughout the birthday party venue which will encourage guests to throw away their own rubbish.
Birthday parties go back in history to the time of ancient Greece or Rome
Who says you can't have a wonderful themed birthday party without the costumes costing tghe host and the guests a whole lot of money? This does not have too be the case. If you decide on a toga birthday party and insist that the birthday party guests must use things they have at home to make their costumes, you can be sure that they will come up with amazing costumes. Prizes should be given for creativity, in other words, for those birthday party guests who manage to use the sheets they have at home as well as some braiding or rope, to form a basic costume. crowns made from the leaves of a bay or laurel tree would be just the thing to complete the picture. Add to that soem gladiator sandals and you are done. What agreat birthday p[arty that will be.
Pimps and prostitutes meet at an adult birthday party
Kids have all the fun when it comes to birthday parties. This does not have to be true if you put some imagination into a theme for the birthgday party. Birthday party invitations could be home-made on black paper with a whole lot of bling. Guests should be informed that there will be special prizes for the most outlandish outfits. this should encourage all who attend the birthday party to go out of their way to dress the part. The kinds of prizes that could be awarded could go to the Best Couple or to the most Believable outfit. Gift vouchers for a pamper session, or for a hairdo would be most suitable. Guests could also be entertained by having a cabaret act perform for their enjoyment. this will be a party to remember!
Video greetings from people who can't attend the birthday party is a special memento
Sometimes people we really want at our birthday party can't make it, for example if they live in another country or are tied up in work commitments. If you're helping to organise a birthday party for someone and you know some of the people who are invited can't make it, put together a birthday greetings video for the person who is celebrating their birthday. The video should feature messages from the guests who can't attend, such as close cousins, friends, grandparents, et cetera. Each person on the video can also include a humourous story about the birthday person if they have one. If you can't make a video with some of the people who won't be at the birthday party, see if they can send photos and/or write letters for the birthday person. The birthday party will be extra special if the video is played during the event.
