Perfect Party Ideas

Perfect Party Ideas

Planning a party can be hard work, especially when it comes to those for an extra special occasion. So to try and help you all out a bit, I've come up with a few ideas that might just add a little bit of extra fun to that special day.

Personalised T-shirts

There are many occasions that call for personalised t-shirts, they are great for events, work and of course some special occasions. Just think of heading out on the town with your friends, all wearing a fun and funky designed-by-youΒ t-shirt. Now back in the day that meant walking the streets looking for a print shop that could help, but these days bulk t-shirt printingΒ is easy, online stores such and Printsome offer an easy interface that offers you a quote in minutes and allows you to personalise multiple areas of the t-shirt.

Photo Props

While a photo booth is a bonus, you don't always need it to enjoy photo props. A cheaper idea could be pinning up a white sheet to a wall or window, grabbing out your phone and snapping away to get the perfect fun reminders of a night with your friends.

Create Your Own Perfume

If you fancy doing something completely different for your special day, then how about making it a day out creating your perfect perfume. I sent my Mum to do this a couple of years ago and she absolutely loved the experience and of course getting to have a bottle of her one of a kind perfume at the end was a great bonus.

Personalised Bubbles Cocktail Glass

Sometimes before you head out on the town, a drink is on the cards at home, so why not start off the night with a personalised glass (there is a style for every tipple). Not only does it help the lucky recipient start the night with a delicious drink, but also offers them something to keep.

So there you have a few ideas to help you put together the perfect party, what do you think of them, any you particularly like?Β
