A masquerade party
In our opinion; the sexiest parties. The guests get to dress up in gowns and suits, and match it up with party masks. These masks could either be provided by you, or you can even ask your guests to bring their own mask, ensuring that the masks match their dress. The food for this one could be simple and elegant food; presented in tableware that has a touch of vintage to it. A masquerade party needn’t always be about ball gowns and tail coats though. You can even tailor your masquerade to fit the 21st century (or perhaps the 22nd?). It all depends on what you want.
An adult dress-up party
Who says dressing up only means wearing party masks or only for Halloween? Dress up parties can be so much fun, depending of course on the theme you choose. Even a celebration with the theme of fairy tales can become very adult, on how you dress for it. Make sure to stress that it’s an adult celebration, and that the guest are obliged to dress accordingly. Deciding on your costume prior to sending out the invitation ensures that you can let your guests know what you plan on dressing, so that they don’t come dressed the same. Put it in subtly, like “Alice and the white Rabbit invite you to wonderland…”. Use your creativity here…!
Themed party
Ok, so we know that not everyone enjoys having to dress up. In this case, your safest bet would be an interesting theme. It wouldn’t even require them to dress up for the bash. Opt for themes like recently released and popular films to really make your event stand out. You can plan your food and decorations accordingly. Depending on how popular it is, you should be able to find beach party decorations cheaply, and fitting to your budget. If not, you can always make it yourself! In fact, DIY decorations tend to impress event guests more.
Whatever theme you may decide on, make sure to have fun; for when the host has fun, everyone else automatically has fun as well…!
