Party planning can be a blast, but if you’re hosting a special event like a bridal shower you want to take your party to the next level. A great way to make sure you and your guests have a memorable time is with personalization. When parties are tailored specifically to you and your guests, everyone feels like they play a part in the event’s success. Here are some clever ways to make your next party one everybody will posting about.
A fun new accessory people are discovering are magnet-backed custom badges. Badges with a magnetic backing can be made with any design or pattern, and best of all can be cut into the exact shape of the design. Next time you have your bride squad over, give them each a different coloured badge based on their role of something thematic from the wedding. This way they get a tasteful bridal party favour they can wear year-round on clothing or luggage.
A fun way to personalize parties is to do so with everyone’s favourite part: the refreshments! Inexpensive wine glasses and champagne flutes can be personalized with permanent markers and some artistic flair. Print out the names of guests or their role in your party and place it in your glass to trace it with your permanent markers and leave them to dry. This is a fun way to personalize parties because you don’t have to stick with just names. You can decorate glasses with patterns or motifs that are seasonal or thematic, and if each glass is decorated a little bit differently nobody will confuse their drinks for someone else’s.
Labels may not seem like a traditional decorating tool, but they’re an incredible tool for personalizing any party. Water bottles for example will more commonly than not have a label that doesn’t match your party’s decor at all. Furthermore, if you’ve created an amazing dish as well as an alternative for guests with dietary restrictions, you’re going to need a way to tell them apart. The easiest way to do that is to customize labels to match colour palettes and the theme of your party. Labels can be used to decorate elements of your party to differentiate between between guest’s disposable dining or drinkware. Labels that are custom can also add flair to snack and drink tables and can be used to label what it is you’re serving (in case some of your guests have allergies or are picky).
A mega trend at weddings (that shows no signs of slowing down) is of course the DIY photo deal! Photo booths are uber popular because they’re not only easy and inexpensive to DIY, but they always make your photos look fantastic and personalized. Segment a large wall and decorate it with balloons, streamers, or bunting in your wedding or party colours. Then all you have to do is set up a tripod or phone stand to put your self-facing phone camera on a timer. If your party is outside then you already have a fantastic backdrop! Just make or buy your own props and snap away!
