Not sure how to host the perfect New Years Eve Masquerade Party? No need to worry here are 5 suggestions to host a memorable evening..
Keep it simple, Masquerade is the theme, so don’t be a control freak. One of the most exciting parts of being invited to a Masquerade party is being able to showcase your personality, purchasing a unique mask that highlights you. If you try to place restrictions on your guests… they are going to be less likely to attend. Skip the color themes, such as red and white… don’t limit dress options, The object is for everyone to feel amazing in what they are wearing and not break the bank doing so. Let everyone show their inner style and create their own alter-ego for the evening.
The Invitation. When is the last time you have received a handwritten anything? Hand deliver or mail a beautifully hand written invitation. Yes it’s going to add a little extra time, but trust me it will be well worth it. Don’t worry about your handwriting… beautiful stationary will solve that problem. After the invitation is delivered, follow up with additional reminders; such as, Facebook, Twitter and Email
The Atmosphere. Mysterious and Elegant… The décor should fit the theme being lush and elegant. Paper table clothes, and red solo cups should be banned. Choose low lighting, candles and delicate colors for your décor. The music selection should be soft and allow your guests to mingle during the earlier hours. Definitely consider purchasing the Amazon Echo before the event. It’s so easy to manage music by just speaking the genera you are looking for. Not to mention the fact that it’s a fantastic purchase you will love long after the party is over.
The Food… Keep in mind that your guests are wearing a mask and therefore stick with easy to handle finger foods. I will be the first to admit that I am challenged in the kitchen. If you are like me consider purchasing easy to follow cookbook focusing on appetizer’s and finger foods. Create a beautiful cocktail area with several mixers. Allow your guest to fix up their own special drinks.
The Big Reveal. Setting a designated time for everyone to remove their masks can be a highlight of the evening. Keep in mind that at some point during the evening the novelty of the mask is going to wear off. Consider having the reveal earlier in the evening as opposed to later. If you wait too long half the attendees will have already removed them. Those that choose to continue to wear their masks all evening can certainly put them back on after the reveal.
The most important thing is to have fun and bring in the New Year in style. I searched several masquerade mask sites and I would highly recommend Masquerade Express. They have a large selection of styles and colors to choose from.
I received free masks from Masquerade Express in exchange for previewing them on this blog post. I fell in Love with these items. Thank you…
