Employing innovative themes to make your parties more entertaining, is a way to cajole the child in all of us that yearns for the long forgotten and carefree times that were spent in the company of friends.
Creatively Planned Parties
There is no doubt that almost everyone going to a party do so, with the intention of enjoying it. However, intentions are not enough to set the party rocking and rolling. It is the well thought out party entertainment idea that focuses the attention of every guest on a cause, and stimulate their imagination.
Send party invitations to your friends and intimates and inform them about the theme. It can help to change the mental gears of stressed out friends and can really set the party on fire right from the word go. On their part, the same party idea will give them cues for the event. Here is a list of a few party ideas for adults which you may like to try.
Have a Hawaiian Luau Theme Based Party
The term 'Luau' means 'Feast'. As the name suggests, this party idea provides an opportunity to indulge in great fun and food.
Strategically mounted Tiki torches, carved candles set on the tables, coconuts, streamers and if possible, mounds of sands to sit on, can definitely set the place for the occasion. Tropical cocktails such as Daiquiris and iced tea for non-alcoholics etc., are a must to quench the thirst of the guests.
Also music, party favors and fun raising games are essential parts of an adult party. Presenting a silk flower leis while inviting your guest in will kick-start the event on a good note.
On a Life Raft
With this theme it is easy to host a lively and fun-filled adult party at your place. The idea is that the crew of a vessel have abandoned their ship and is planning their own rescue.
For the life raft, set a mat, a big couch or if you can manage, a bed in the middle of the party place (mostly, a swimming tank). The raft should accommodate atleast ten guests. Anybody can join the raft whenever they desire. All they have to do is listen, discuss, suggest and come with unique ideas, comments, appropriate song or speech at the moment.
To create the feel of the sea, create the effect of waves, if you are having the party in a room. Asks for volunteers and form at least four groups, with two or four members in it. Give each group a long piece of cloth and ask them to stand around the raft holding a corner of cloth in hand. All they have to do is to heave the cloth for the wavy effect.
You can also tie these pieces of cloth around the raft and use a portable or table fan to achieve the effect. For food, you can opt for canned food or finger food and drinks. If you want to increase the fun, those who are not on the raft can try to rescue the unfortunate ones.
The success of the party may depend partially on how good you are at decorating your place as a western tavern or as an inn. Scattered saw dust or hay on the floor and "Wanted" posters of your friends on the walls, will provide the right sort of decorations for the party.
If you are a computer geek, try doctoring the photos with the help of a software. If you have plenty of outdoor space, then with the help of ropes and posts, you can isolate one of its corner as a ranch for the party and complete it with bales of hay.
