There are so many events that just need that little extra. Birthdays, weddings, and graduation parties feel the same after you’ve been to a few. The question is, though, when you host your own event, how do you make sure your party is memorable? Many modern event organizers are thinking outside the box when it comes to party planning, and some of the ideas for entertainment are revolutionary. From magicians to magic mirrors, here are a few ideas about how to make people count down the days until your next event.
Hiring a magician for your next party is a sure-fire way to entertain guests. Now, you may be imagining some guy pulling rabbits out of hats and making balloon animals. That would go down well at a kids’ party, but may not be exactly what young adults are looking for. For your event, you would be best off looking for someone who can perform street magic.
There are loads of esteemed magicians in the Toronto area, including Mike D’Urzo, Yan Markson, and Haim Goldenberg. These people have inspired others to enter careers in the trade, and some got their start on the party circuit. They will simply walk around and perform tricks with people using cards, jewellery, or whatever else they can find. This can add some serious thrills to any event.
Casino table games are another great way to add some spice to a party and give partygoers an activity to do. Games like roulette and craps can be particularly engaging since they involve multiple players at the same time. If you don’t want people gambling at the event, you can simply give guests some fake money to play with. In the end, whoever has the most money can win a prize.
Roulette is extremely popular nowadays thanks to online casinos, and it is likely that most people at the party would have an idea about how to play. There are plenty of sites where you can play it for free as well, so you can tell your guests to get some practice in before they come to your party.
Magic Mirror for Selfies
Just like the ancient proverb about whether a falling tree makes a sound if nobody is around to hear it, did a party even happen if nobody took a photo? All the snaps from a great event end up on different people’s Instagram, but how do you organise them in one place and make sure they are all fantastic? The answer is to hire a magic mirror and place it in a strategic location at your party. Attendees will go up to it and have their selfies taken. They are all compiled into a file which you can easily upload to the social media site of your choice.
All of these options can elevate your party from being an average event, to a memorable one. Giving guests an activity to do is such a good way to encourage bonding. People who attend your events may even make friends for life.
