Sometimes, a couple of rum and cokes and a bit of a dance to Abba just isn’t enough. There are some occasions that need a little bit more panache. It might be your hen night. It could be an engagement party or even a school reunion. Maybe it’s your best friend’s birthday and you want to make sure that she has a night to remember – it doesn’t matter.
What does matter is that you’re aware of all your options. You don’t have to settle for the same old dodgy disc jockey and stale pasties combo for the sixteenth time in a row. Instead, why not organise a top themed event night in? Lots of hotels and retreats up and down the country offer guests the chance to throw unique and exciting themed events and parties. If you’re looking for an event that’s a little bit different, a themed evening could be the perfect option for you, says WikiHow.com. Here’s a guide to some of the very best themed packages.
It’s Oscars Night
This is perhaps the most successful of all the themed events run by hotels in this country. Venues like those found at www.amazingvenues.co.uk regularly help intrepid guests to organise Hollywood themed event nights. There’s a faux paparazzi pit so that you and your friends get inundated with flashing lights as you arrive at the event, RealSimple.com journalist says Krissy Tiglias. There’s a huge velvet lined table covered with all the champagne and chocolates that you could ever want. Yes, of course there’s a red carpet. If you let the organising team know who your favourite celebrities are – they might even pull be able to pull some strings and get them to come along. Keep your wits about you, though. You don’t want to be found at 2am chatting to a cardboard cutout about how much you love your cats – even if it is a cardboard cutout of Brad Pitt.
Red Hot Salsa
If you fancy a bit of a giggle, why not get the girls together and organise a salsa evening? This is a great idea for hen nights. It can work as a mixed gender exercise, but if it’s for a birthday or an engagement party – do you really want to end up stuck with your that creepy cousin again? You know, the one with the mono brow and the wandering hands. A salsa night can be lots of fun, just so as long as you’re comfortable getting close with a dance partner. Venues like Stanbrook Abbey are almost always happy to provide lessons from a professional as part of the event package, too. All that you’ve got to do is watch carefully whilst they teach you the basics, say the experts at Corporate Events UK. Then, it’s time for yocorporau and your dance partner to hit the floor. The Spanish style salsa costumes are optional, but very much encouraged.
Life’s A Beach
Dancing might not be your thing and the idea of a Hollywood themed event might make you nauseous – it doesn’t matter. There are plenty of other options available. How about organising an indoor beach party? As long as you can get your guests to come along in appropriate dress, your chosen hotel will almost certainly be happy to take care of the beach bit for you. All that you’ve got to do is turn up and run your toes through the sand. You should probably partake of those fruit flavoured cocktails, too. That surf simulator isn’t going to ride itself, either. It’s time to get a little bit Hawaiian – if only for one night.
