FOCUS ON THE FUTURE
New Year parties are all about leaving the past behind and looking to the future. So why not go with this concept through a ‘focus on the future theme’. Here are some ideas that complement this theme.
Invitations printed in the form of tarot cards will give the guests an idea about the theme of the party. Pick cards with images of astrological signs or planets printed on them. The invitation should include all the relevant details like the venue, location, date and the theme. Ask your guests to come dressed as gypsies or fortunetellers.
Decorate the whole place with beaded curtains and light a lot of candles. Hang posters with astrological signs and silver and golden stars. A crystal globe light is essential to create the perfect ambience.
Hire a fortune teller that reads palms or tells the future with the crystal ball. This will be a great source of entertainment for the guests. Other entertainment options include horoscope reading or tarot cards. Do not forget to play mystic music to evoke the theme.
Set a long table and decorate it with glitter, silver stars, and candle centrepieces. You can serve star and moon shaped cookies as desserts. Give a twist to the usual dishes by giving them astrological names. Use star shaped crystal crockery to serve the food as it will evoke the theme.
Underwater theme is perfect to feel the enchantment of the ocean. You have to transform the party hall into an aquarium to create the perfect underwater effect. Bring these bright ideas into play to pull off a smashing under the sea New Year party.
How about sending message in a bottle? Write your details on a paper, roll it up, and slide it inside the empty dry soda bottle. Another great way is to purchase seashells and write your party details on it. However, make sure to send them in padded envelopes so that it can safely reach the receiver.
Seafood has to be an important part of the feast. With cookie cutters, cut fish shaped sandwiches, cheese and meat pieces. Book a baker who can design a fish cake for your party.
Imagine an aquarium and think of some unique decorations. Cover the ceiling and walls with a blue clear wrap to give the effect of being under the sea. Place a bubble machine at any corner of the venue. Use a lot of blue and sea green balloons to decorate the hall. Also, hang toy fish from the ceiling.
Encourage your guests to come dressed as mermaids, fishes and other marine creatures. This will add more fun to the party. A treasure hunt game or the best costume contest can be held too.
