It's Party Time
5 Things To Remember When Selecting Party Prop Gifts
It’s time to partayyy! Check out these tips to get some great ideas for props & themes so everyone has a great time.
1. No in-betweens
If you are hosting a throwback party then try to stick to a specific year of your choice and pick props based on what you think is appropriate for the crowd attending. You can either go the 70s or 80s or just mix it up completely having the best of all the memorable decades. Try not to mix up 9 70s theme items with 1 or 2 from the 90s. It’ll be much better to go all in.
2. Include everybody
It’s not uncommon to have board games or even games & props for kid’s parties. Always make sure you have enough for all the kids and try to find some common ground on what everyone likes. If you decide to have a movie-themed poker night, for instance, make sure you have enough chips & cards for more than the expected number. There’s always a sadder vibe when someone who is eager to get involved is left out. In the case of kids parties, you might not always have time to buy something more last minute.
3. Age matters
This especially applies when hosting kid’s parties. Make sure your props are suited to your child’s and the majority of his or her friend’s ages. 10-year-olds wouldn’t enjoy playing games designed for 5-6-year-olds. Try to be as inclusive as you can but in the case of birthdays try to focus on what your special someone would really love.
4. Create an awesome atmosphere
Themed parties are not simple; the props here can really be used to set the scene so that guests can have a fabulous time. Stuff like wallpapers, photobooths, movie-themed décor can really set the tone for everyone in the room to follow.
5. Introduce a new game
This applies to kids parties especially as you can use this opportunity to introduce your kid to a new board game or a prop related game that you had played in your own childhood. There’s nothing more pleasing than laughter tries to get a prop that kids can have hours of fun with so you can always mingle with the rest of the parents for instance.
