Top Ideas To Liven Up Your Event

Don’t just throw a party. Go the extra mile to impress your guests and make them feel special. You can do so many things like having a  360 photo booth, live music, and unique themes. Here are some ideas for making your next event unforgettable:

1. Create a Snapchat Filter

Creating a custom Snapchat filter is a great way to build excitement around an upcoming event. Whether you’re planning a birthday party, wedding, graduation party, or just having people over to watch the big game, a custom Snapchat filter adds an element of fun and celebration that everyone can enjoy. 

2. DJ & Music

The right music will put your guests in the mood to have a great time. However, the wrong music could make them feel uncomfortable, resulting in early leavers.

With the right DJ & music, you can ensure that your event is a success, so make sure that you choose music that fits the type of event you’re holding and is appropriate for the audience demographic.

3. Complimentary Gifts to guests

Your party is a big event that you have spent a lot of time planning and preparing for, so it’s essential to make sure your guests walk away satisfied. A great way to enhance your guests’ experience is to give them complimentary gifts. They are a small gesture that will go a long way to show people how much you appreciate them spending their time at your party.

4. Live music

Most people love live music. Whether a soloist, a band, or a local group playing songs on traditional instruments, they can all add something new to an event. If you’re planning a party and want to make sure it stands out from the crowd, arranging live music is a great way to liven things up and add variety to your event.

5. Bring in a comedian

A comedian can be a real talking point for your event.  They could take on the role of the Master of Ceremonies or just be an act during the evening. Do check out reviews and talk to the comedian in advance to ensure that their sense of humor is appropriate for your audience.

6. Have A Themed Event 

Why not consider using a theme for your event? It can add a whole new dimension to the occasion and really give people something to talk about

Consider your audience, venue, timing, and other factors that might influence the choice of theme.

For example:

  • A high-tech theme may best serve a corporate sales strategy launch. The venue could be styled to look like a space station, with starfields and planets projected onto the walls.
  • A drink or food launch could be based around a particular country. Have fancy dress in traditional costumes, and the catering can all be in keeping with this theme.
  • An IT product launch might have a Matrix theme (with models dressed as Trinity or Neo) and computer-generated graphics on big screens around the venue.
  • A sporting event could have a retro theme, with old-fashioned games such as sack races and three-legged races, and even an appearance by a well-known sports star!

7. Hand Out Surprise Goodie Bags

Surprise goodie bags are fun and exciting, and they can create engaging conversations, especially if the gifts are unusual. If you’re trying to develop some creative ideas for your next party, consider adding a few icebreakers to the goodie bags. They make great conversation starters, and you’ll find that guests will enjoy getting to know the other people at the party.

8. Selfie Station

A Selfie Station is a must-have for your event! What better way to liven up your event than with the opportunity to take away fun keepsakes. Your guests will love the chance to take selfies, group shots, and more in the selfie station.

9. Host Games

Event games are a fun way for attendees to let loose and get involved in your event. Event games are fun, but they encourage people to mingle with new attendees and old acquaintances. From scavenger hunts to bingo, event games allow you to add a new element of interactivity and engagement that will impress and delight your guests.
