Surprise parties put a fun and unique spin on the age-old party. They have the ability to take the same party and make it much more memorable just by virtue of the surprise. We all know that your typical party takes a bit of planning, butt the surprise party requires a bit more thinking ahead if you are going to pull it off right! Here are a few last minute party planning tips.
Get the Logistics Down on Your Last Minute Party Planning
It all starts with picking a quality place to host the event. Somebody’s home is always a great option, especially for a last-minute party, but bars and restaurants are great too, especially if there is a back room of sorts. Next, you need to focus on coordinating with all of the guests of the party. It is a good idea to keep the guest list a bit smaller than usual, as you are counting on everyone to be on time and not ruin the surprise! It is important to ensure that guests arrive much earlier than the guest of honor. Finally, when the guest of honor finally arrives, have fun with it and make a lot of noise—maybe even bring a few props into it!
Make Sure It is a Fun Atmosphere
Of course, the most important factor in the atmosphere of any party is the people who are invited, but there are also many other details that can contribute to a fun place to celebrate. One of the most fundamental of these, as any party-goer will tell you, is the music. You want to make sure there is a good upbeat vibe to most the songs you choose, but there should be a good variety. If you want to take the music and the entire experience to the next level, you should hire a professional DJ. A professional can cater the music to your friend’s tastes, play the best and most current music, and pick songs based on the mood of the party. And it is easier than ever to find a DJ in Orlando with the help of Sound Sensation Entertainment. When you look back on the party you threw, bringing a DJ in will hands down be the best decision you made.
Behind the music, the next most important feature of a good vibe at a party is the lighting. Many people do not consciously notice this, but you can be sure they feel it. Spot lights highlighting different features of the partyscape are great, accent lights along the walls can cast different hues throughout your party space. You can project images, surround the DJ with concert lighting, bring back the disco ball, and so much more. All of your options are clearly laid out for you when you seek the services of Sound Sensation Entertainment.
