I have had the cookie cutter event experience more times than I want to remember. You know the event where the decorations, food, activities are just EXACTLY the same. Let’s end these event déjà vu experiences with these thought provoking event planning tips:
Combine themes. Put your creativity to the test, and combine two ideas, two themes, or whatever you like for your next event! Combining two party themes is a great way to stand out from other events! Try not to confuse your guests. Ensure the themes are related in some way. With Valentine’s Day a few weeks away, a “Valentine’s Day in Paris” themed event can bring together the best of Paris and Valentine’s Day together beautifully!
Make it personal. There is nothing worse than going to a birthday party where the theme or party elements don’t speak to the unique likes or personality of the person of honor. For example, I have a friend whose favorite candy is Twizzlers. So, creating a signature drink showcasing Twizzlers, such as the Twizzler Lemondade Cocktail, would be PERFECT for a party or event honoring my friend.
