Sometimes figuring out what type of party you want to have can be a little tricky. I know when I throw parties, I want them to be a little different than the typical get-together. The hubs and I are also without kids, so I’m always looking for something that isn’t too childish. If you’re looking for unique party ideas, look no further. Here are three trending parties that have nothing to do with balloons or streamers.
The Roof Party
Live in a tiny apartment and do not have room to host a party? Ask your landlord if you can occupy your roof for the night! It is a grand place to have a party, because it already has entertainment! The sunset will fascinate your guests, and there is the ever spectacular light show of a city at night. It can be a fancy affair or a casual one. If you just want to get a few friends together, keep it simple and throw a few Mexican blankets on the floor and add a few pillows from your couch. This hipster, Boho theme will make your friends love their indie lives! Add a few lanterns, candles, or Christmas lights, and it will get even more magical. Great cuisine for this casual party would be cheese boards and wine. There is nothing better. Need some inspiration? This scene from Pinterest will inspire you (as well as this one).
Roof parties can also be fancy! If you set a dress code and send out invitations, guests will know that your roof party is no easy-going hang out. This classy roof party from Pinterest will bring inspiration, and this one is so chic!
The Backyard Party
If you are looking for a casual and cheap venue, your backyard might be the perfect place to host your 10th wedding anniversary or your best friend’s going-away party. Backyards are the perfect place to host a party because you can use so many of the things you already have! Bring some of your indoor furniture outside and create a beautiful seating area. Use your china that you’ve been storing in the closet, and set a formal place setting. Break out the Christmas boxes and bring out your twinkle lights. Pick some flowers from your garden and display them as beautiful centerpieces. There really is no end to what you could do.
Furthermore, the greatest thing about backyard parties is that you can style it to your taste! If you are the Boho/chic type, you can have a casual party like this. Or, if you are more inclined towards the country chic style, take a look at this and this from Pinterest. Since you already using your own stuff, the theme will be easy to set (and everything will coordinate).
Want to make your backyard party even more special? Have your musical friends bring their instruments and have them play their newly created songs. There is nothing better than music. Why not have your friends showcase their talent? If it’s not too loud, your neighbors won’t mind!
That right! Do you remember the childhood pastime of making a home-made tent out of blankets and pillows in your living room? It was so fun to play a game or watch a movie enclosed in sheets and blankets. Relive this magic again by having a tent party. This Pinterest portrait makes this party look so fun! I mean, come on! Look at that flowered sheet! Look at that food spread! It’s magic, and it’s so easy to make! You simply need sheets, rope, and two buildings or trees to tie off the cord.
