Birthday Party Ideas

2022 Evening Entertainment Idea’s that will make your night one to remember!

Wedding receptions are all about celebrating your love as a couple, having fun with your guests and family, eating good food, drinking, and dancing. We all know how weddings go, but there are only so many things you can do during a reception until you run out of things to do, and at that point, the party can start to die out.

If you want to keep the party alive and running, you must get creative, and sometimes this means hiring wedding entertainment. Wedding entertainment can be anything that keeps your guests engaged in the party or activity that breaks the ice for your guests, allowing them to have the night of their lives.

Here are some of the best ideas for wedding entertainment that will make your guests have the time of their life!

Jukebox

Jukeboxes are a vintage staple item that allows you and your guests to play whatever music you can think of, especially if it’s a digital one. This is a great alternative to a wedding DJ package for smaller events or if your guests have good taste in music. Having a jukebox will also make people gather around it and start conversations, which is always a good thing for a great reception where everyone is having fun.

Magic live show

Magic artists are always fun to watch; whether it’s on the street, at shows or on the internet, these people will keep you on the edge of the seat and make your jaw drop at every turn. Incorporating a live magic show into your wedding package will make your guests talk to one another and starting the fun with some laughter.

Giant Jenga

Games are just great for weddings, they’re the ice breakers by excellence, and there’s a vast amount of them to get into your wedding package. One of these games is Jenga, especially a big one with giant pieces and a tower the size of a person. If you’ve ever played a game of Jenga, you know just how fun and exciting it can get to pull out and stack the wooden pieces as you prevent the tower from falling.

Wedding DJ

One of the most important things to have fun at a wedding reception is the music, and some people opt for a band, but these bands regularly can’t cover the entire time your reception lasts, sometimes taking breaks or leaving early. This means you need someone to cover that time with music or maybe have someone play music throughout the entirety of your reception.

A DJ can cover all those concerns regarding the music, have a deep understanding of the transition between songs, genres, and beats, have a seamless transition from track to track and keep all your guests on the dance floor. So, consider incorporating one of ours DJ packages into your wedding, especially if you’re located in Essex; you can check out our wedding DJ packages for Essex on our website.

Pinata

These traditionally Mexican crafts are hollow cardboard sculptures designed to be hit with a stick by guests until it breaks, and whatever treats or items are hidden inside fall for your guests to catch. Pinatas are easy to make if there’s no place to buy them, and they’re just so fun to have in your wedding as your guests will have the time of their lives trying to access whatever surprise is inside. It’s also a great stress reliever, and we know how stressful weddings can get.

Mobile bar

Bars are an essential element to any event with many guests, and this applies to your wedding, where guests will need refreshments, a couple of drinks and a focal point to gather around and talk. Nowadays, many venues don’t provide you with a fully functioning bar that can make drinks for your guests, which can become troublesome for your reception.

Consider hiring a service that provides you with a mobile bar at your venue, as well as a bartender that can cater to your audience and even have their drink-making abilities showcased in front of your guests as they wait for their drink.

Karaoke

Of course, it’s great to listen to music sung by the artist and dancing to it, but one way to make it much more fun and interactive is to get some karaoke going in your wedding package. Karaoke is fun regardless of how good your guests are at singing; from funny performances to hidden talents and duets with great chemistry, karaoke will surely make your wedding an unforgettable event for your guests.

Casino tables

Games are always an amazing ice breaker: they get people involved and competitive, there’s no need for things in common between your guests to interact, and you can get a few laughs out of them. Incorporating games into your wedding can be the difference between an awkward and boring reception and one that will have your guests constantly interacting with everyone and having fun.

An exciting yet elegant way to incorporate games into your wedding package is by hiring a casino table’s service with your favourite games to be played by your guests, making for a really fun atmosphere at your wedding. You can even get customized poker chips with your names on them and the date of your wedding as a fun and cute prop.

Fun photobooth

Sometimes photography can also be wedding entertainment, and as proof of that, there are photo booths. Photobooths have been a trend for years now, and it’s not a surprise considering how fun they can be with all the funny and silly props and signs, making people act silly for a moment and have a laugh while preparing to get their pictures taken and printed out as a great memory maker.

Caricatures

Maybe your guests aren’t big fans of cameras but still want to have a souvenir from your special day to preserve memories. An alternative can be a caricaturist that will capture the essence of your guests in an art piece that can be readily available and fun to look at and share with others. The quiet space where your caricaturist will be can also serve as a break room from all the fun and thrilling interactions happening on the dance floor of your reception.

Don’t be afraid to have fun.

So now you have some ideas of how to make your reception an unforgettable party. Still, the main thing to keep in mind while planning the entertainment in your wedding package is that you shouldn’t be afraid to have a fun time during your wedding and that things that can seem cheesy or silly will make your guests never forget this event and have the night of their life with you.


15 Must-have wedding photographs for your 2022 wedding!

Weddings are full of moments of joy, fun, romance, and bonding; moments that you wish would last forever and be able to return to them whenever you wanted, but of course, this can’t be. One thing we do to remember and relive those special moments in our lives is to capture them in photographs, which is why there are so many wedding photographers out there offering their services to capture the amazing moments of your special day.

Of course, you know you need a photographer, it’s a standard service for weddings. Still, you probably wonder how to make the most out of the pictures your photographer takes, some ideas for treasurable photos and how to have fun in front of the camera.

Having a good idea of the pictures you’re 100% sure you want for your wedding is useful, and you’ll be able to give it to your photographer, who will then make sure to get all the shots you wanted. So here are 15 photographs you must get taken during your 2022 wedding!

  1. Bride and Bridesmaids Getting Ready Together

One of the first and most important moments for a bride is when she’s getting ready with all her best friends and female relatives, it’s a time with the girls of your life that precedes one of the most important and precious moments of your life, and you will want to get that captured by your photographer.

  1. Father and Son Moment

Emotional moments are also a thing for fathers and their to-be-wed son, and a great way to capture the moment of emotion between a father and son is to take a picture while the father helps his son tying his tie.

  1. The First Look

After getting ready, many couples opt not to see each other until they’re both fully suited up and ready to get married, which makes for a sudden realization of the fact that you’re getting married to the person you love. This is a very emotional moment that goes by in an instant, and the look on both of your faces will be lost in memory unless your photographer takes a picture of this magical instant.

  1. Walking to The Altar

The moments before saying “I do” are undoubtedly tense and exciting, and one thing that contributes to this buildup of emotion is the walk a bride takes with his father to the altar, where he delivers her to her soon to be husband. Capturing these moments is a great way to preserve this feeling unique to a wedding, whether it is a photo of the walk or the moment the father delivers his daughter to the altar.

  1. The Veil

One of the most magical parts of a bride’s outfit is the veil, which hides her face until the husband lifts it to reveal the bride’s smile and finally have their first kiss as a married couple. This moment is unique and great for a perfectly timed picture during the lifting of the veil.

  1. Car Ride

Most couples decide to have a religious ceremony for their wedding, mainly in a church of some sort, so the reception location where their party will take place is elsewhere. This is a great opportunity to rent out a beautiful vintage car that makes for amazing pictures, too, whether it is getting into the car, out of it or driving away as the guests cheer on.

  1. The Family 

A wedding is a moment you want to celebrate with your family, and what other way to never forget who spent this important day with you than with some pictures of you guys together.

  1. Arriving at The Reception

Now that the moments of romance and ceremonies are over and the party is about to start, this is a great opportunity to photograph you as a couple arriving at the venue of your reception.

  1. First Dance

This is also a big moment for couples, where they dance to the song of their choice after being wed, a great and intimate moment made possible by your wedding DJ that your wedding photographer can capture.

  1. Greeting the Guests

In a wedding, there are many guests that, as a couple, you will want to exchange some words with, and your photographer can capture these candid moments perfectly for you.

  1. Dancing the Night Away

Music is a big part of weddings; it sets the mood, brings people to the dance floor, and breaks the ice, which is why you should make sure you hire a great wedding DJ that knows how to set the tone for a great night of dancing, which your photographer will then photograph and collect all those fun moments.

If you want a DJ that perfectly sets the mood in your wedding, you can check out the Essex DJ packages available on our website, so you don’t have to worry about the music and entertaining your guests.

  1. Life of The Party

At every wedding reception, there’s always someone who takes the spotlight during the partying. This person makes sure everyone is having fun and really cheers up everyone to have a great night; taking pictures of these fun moments will make for some future laughs when looking through them.

  1. Fun Props

Having fun props to take pictures with during your wedding is great as a tool for wedding entertainment and making things more fun. Having pictures taken while wearing silly hats or accessories is also a form of entertainment for your guests, and they won’t get enough of it. This can be achieved with one of our packages, including a DJ package for your Essex wedding.

  1. The Decoration

Taking pictures of your wedding is also about the entire aesthetic style of your wedding, and taking pictures of the tables, flowers, lights, the venue, or the wedding DJ stage and dance floor is a great way to create a collage of images that channel the atmosphere of your wedding.

  1. Post Wedding Day Photoshoot

Of course, the wedding day is important, and there are many opportunities to take pictures. Still, a big part of your wedding day is spent on wedding entertainment during the reception, so you might want to take a day after your wedding to go to a great spot for pictures, you can even do it before the wedding day if you have time.


How to lower COVID Risks on your wedding day

The pandemic caused by COVID-19 and its restrictions changed the wedding plans many couples had in mind. If you are amongst the thousands of couples who were waiting for the right moment to say I do, the wait has come to an end. Weddings in England have returnedtonormality, and social distancingis a thingofthepast.

And ifyouwantto be extra careful, you can encourageyourgueststogettestedbeforeyourevent, evenifthey do not show symptoms.

Outdoors is better. 

If you have no option but to celebrate your wedding indoors, you need to have a plan to renew the air within the venue constantly. Maintain doors and windows open and, if possible, install a couple of fans to make the air circulate. Letting fresh air into your closed wedding venue will reduce the concentration of aerosols spread by someone sick.

Try to host an outdoor ceremony to reduce the time your guests are under the same roof. You can also have an outdoor cocktail and, if possible, your whole event outside. If you are worried about rain or cold, you can set up a tent without sidewalls to let air flow freely.

Common use areas. 

Perhaps you are hosting an outdoor ceremony and reception, but bathrooms are located indoors, or if your event takes place indoors, you might need to take some steps to ensure your guests are not too close for much time.

Talk about those areas with your wedding venue staff; perhaps you can arrange to have someone control the bathroom entrance so that only a couple of guests are indoors simultaneously. You can ask them to leave enough space between tables and chairs for indoor receptions and even sit fewer guests per table.

Transportation. 

Perhaps you have it all figured out for your big day; you ensured proper ventilation, the distance between guests, and all your vendors will use a face covering while at your wedding venue, but what about attendees who share transport and do not live together? The recommendation is for them to wear face coverings while sharing a car and crack open a window if possible.

Birthday Party Ideas

Birthday Party Ideas to keep your guests entertained.

Birthday parties are great opportunities to celebrate life and bring our friends and family together. Whether it is an adult or kids party, a small or big gathering, we always want to keep our guests entertained. But that is easier said than done. After a couple of birthdays, we start to run out of ideas, and good old birthday playlists and lawn games get boring for everyone.

But there are always creative ideas to keep your birthday parties fun and make them memorable for your guests. And the best part is you do not have to spend much or do much. We have come up with a couple of ideas for you to put into practice.

Backyard movie night. 

A theme suitable for any age, setting up a movie theatre in your backyard is simple, and there are plenty of sizes and styles to fit every need. So no matter if your party has 30 or 150 guests, you can have fun with them all. Please choose your favourite movie or saga and make it a themed or customs celebration.

Set up a cosy atmosphere with pillows, blankets, and chairs. Some fairy lights to make it comfortable and romantic. A table with popcorn, candies, and even a chocolate fountain to surprise all your guests with a sweet treat.

Disco night. Birthday parties

Dancing the night away is what you dream of for your birthday party? Well, you can do it in the most fun and unique way by hiring a light up dancefloor, from a funky LED to a romantic and luxurious white starlit. And it does not matter if your guest list is long or short. You will find a dancefloor to fit all sizes, from 10ft to 20ft.

But what is a dancefloor without music? You need to make sure your guests have the right tunes to keep the body moving. And you have two options, a professional DJ or a digital jukebox. Each alternative has its perks. A DJ can read the crowds; you can trust your DJ will know when to play soft melodies and when to kick the all-time classics.

On the other hand, a digital jukebox can be interactive entertainment. Your guests will be actively involved in playing their favourite songs and dancing to them all night. Plus, if you are planning a birthday for a younger generation, they will be pleasantly surprised by the vintage look and the technological features.

Spa day. 

A relaxing day at the spa is what any adult needs to recharge batteries and keep up with adulthood. But if visiting an actual spa is off-limits due to budget limitations or logistics, you can always have it at home. Yes, all you need is a hot tub hire, some comfy bathrobes, and a glass of your favourite cocktail. The best of all is that hot tub hire includes set up, so you do not have to worry about anything but enjoying your birthday celebration.

Although spa sounds like an activity for adults, young ones also enjoy being pampered, especially when a hot tub is involved. You can set up a little table with masks, nail polish, scrubs, magazines, and some refreshments. They will love to feel like they are grown ups and will have fun being in the water.

Casino Night. 

Imagine putting on a glamorous outfit to welcome your guests into a fancy and luxurious casino night. Casino tables are set up with professional croupiers ready, a mobile bar with a tailored cocktail menu, and a red, white, and black décor to set up the atmosphere. You and your guest will be instantly transported to one of the most exclusive casinos in the world, all in your venue or home.

Sounds like a dream, right? Well, it could be a dream come true if you hire a casino table and mobile bar with Trez Entertainment. You can choose from various tables and setups, so it does not matter if your guest is an amateur or a professional. You can be sure everyone will have fun.

Camp at home. 

Camping is a fun activity for kids and adults, but preparing for camping, getting to the camping location, and setting everything up can be a hassle. If you want to organise a fun camp night, you can do it at home; all you need to do is hire a tipi tent, place some blankets, pillows, and mood lighting.

For a kids camp out, you can arrange a smore bar or, better yet, a chocolate fountain with fruit and marshmallows. Some of their favourite beverages and, of course, music or a projector with their favourite movie. And if the party involves adults, you can add some cocktails or hot beverages if it is a chilly night.

Tipi tents are flexible and easy to set up, they can be used for a small or large party, and you can even connect them to create a larger space. You can have one tent for entertainment, one for food, and another one to sleep in.

Birthdays are memorable celebrations we treasure for life. If you manage to impress and entertain your guest uniquely and uncommonly, we are certain your next birthday celebration will be a total success. Make sure you contact us to hire all you need for entertainment; we can make your Essex birthday party a one-of-a-kind celebration.

 


2021 Complete Guide: Top Tips for Organising your event.

After the cancellation and postponement of many events during 2020, the world is excited to attend any social event. But how can you plan a successful event during a year where normality has not made a comeback? We have a complete guide for you with tips and hacks to organise the most memorable 2021 event.

Define the purpose of the event. 

Social events have different purposes; for example, a wedding is meant to celebrate the union of two individuals and gather their loved ones to witness. On the other hand, a networking event will have the purpose of connecting people. For each type of event, you need different venues, entertainment, and even food.

Organising your eventKnowing the purpose of your event, or why are you organising the event? I will send you on the right path. If you are planning a wedding, you need a ceremony venue, a dance floor, a DJ, a catering service for a full dinner, chairs and tables, décor, and a wedding cake. On the other hand, a corporate social event will require some cocktail tables, a soft background music, perhaps a stage, and instead of dinner appetisers and cocktails.

Have a clear idea regarding the type of socialisation you want to encourage; if you want people to mingle, focus on gathering everyone in the same room. If you want them to talk about business, avoid having distractors such as loud music and an open bar. The purpose of your event will let you know which vendors you need.

Create a budget.

Now it is time to get serious and set a realistic budget for your event. Even if you are organising a birthday party, you need to know your possibilities and limits. Social events easily add up to the bill, and when you least expect it, you are paying a sum you did not imagine could be possible.

Before visiting venues and scrolling through apps to find inspiration, you need to know what size and type of event you can afford. If you want to be responsible, your budget will determine the number of guests, not the other way around.

Plan your guest list.

Once you know the size of the event you need to organise, you can begin to write your guest list. Before the pandemic, you could expect a turnout of 70 to 80 per cent; for 2021, you must know over 90% of guests are attending events. Still, some of your guests might not feel comfortable around others or attending social events; always let them know you understand and respect their decision.

Choose a theme. 

From weddings to birthday parties, every event needs a theme. Your theme will dictate the formality of the event, the decoration, and even the food. You should also take into consideration your venue; for example, if you are organising an event at home, you can choose a theme that suits the style of your patio or indoor décor.

 

Organise food and drinks or hire catering. 

Food and drinks are crucial for any event; your guests will expect anything from appetisers to a full meal. And as we told you before, you can incorporate your theme into these elements for a Hawaiian themed party, add many tropical flavours and even some personalised drinks. If you do not want to be busy serving drinks and food, your best option is to hire a catering service and a bar.

Mobile bars are a great option because they come ready to serve and fully licensed. You can request a custom menu to match your theme; the bar service will include an experienced mixologist, friendly and professional staff, and even nonalcoholic beverages.

Book entertainment. 

Entertainment is the soul of any social event, you can have all your family and friends, a beautiful venue, perfect decoration, food, and drinks non-stopping, but after a couple of hours, your guests will start wondering if they should go home. To prevent your event from turning into a nightmare, you need to be prepared with the best entertainment; here are some unique ideas.

  • One of the classic and most reliable entertainment you can find out there, a professional DJ can suit many types of events like weddings, corporate events, birthday parties, and even Christmas parties. The magic of hiring a DJ is knowing exactly how to entertain based on the event and age group.
  • Digital Jukebox. If you look for an interactive entertainment look no more, a digital jukebox will not only add music to your party but hours of fun for your guests who will remember the good old days or get to know a jukebox with all the comfort of digital controls.
  • Casino table. A unique complement for your Las Vegas or Casino themed party, or even for any other theme, who does not love to play? A casino table service will include all you need to play and even trained professional croupiers. The easiest option is to surprise your guests and keep them entertained without moving a finger.
  • Outdoor cinema. Can you imagine setting a giant inflatable cinema, having a table with popcorn and your favourite snacks to watch your favourite movie? Well, you can make it a reality; hiring an outdoor cinema is ideal for a birthday sleepover, a Halloween party, and any other special occasion. You can organise a themed night and play your favourite saga; the possibilities are endless.

Make it safe.

Although many restrictions are easing, you should still listen to local guidelines and follow authorities' recommendations. Try to provide your guests with a safe and comfortable environment, and if you are throwing a large party, perhaps an outdoor venue would suit you best. You can hire a tipi tent to keep everyone cover while being outside.

Now you know all there is to know about organising your 2021 event, all we are left to say is we hope you have fun while doing it, and if you need help with entertainment or decoration, contact us. At Trez Entertainment, you will find the best service; we commit to making your event unforgettable.


Hot tub

Why do you need Hot tub Hire for your next gathering?

Hot tubs are the most pampering and relaxing thing in the world. Imagine yourself immersed in hot water, having a moment to focus on yourself after a long week of duties, sipping a glass of wine or enjoying a cocktail. Now imagine that in the comfort of your patio. It is possible with a hot tub hire and easier than you can imagine.

But you might be asking yourself which events could be appropriate or how can you organise a party with a hot tub? We have some ideas for you and reasons to hire a hot tub for your next celebration.

Why a hot tub is a good idea? 

  • Hot water has relaxed humans for ages. Romans used to take relaxing baths in natural hot springs and the Japanese as early as 552 AD.
  • A hot tub can help your skin, cardiovascular and respiratory systems.
  • They are the perfect way to enjoy the water during cold seasons.
  • A regular celebration can turn into the most memorable and luxurious one just by adding a hot tub.

When should I hire a hot tub? Hot tub Hire

When not? A hot tub needs no reason to be enjoyed, but if you are looking to incorporate it into a celebration, here are some fun and interesting ideas.

  1. Anniversary.

A romantic night with your other half could not be complete without a hot tub. You can decorate to set the atmosphere, place some candles outside or string lights. Cook dinner or order from your favourite restaurant, open a bottle of champagne to celebrate. Flowers always look pretty when you are having a romantic evening.

You can also have a specific theme or recreate some of the decorations from your wedding day. Perhaps a romantic red decoration with balloons, rose petals, and a pretty tablecloth. The idea is to transform your home into a romantic environment so you can forget about everything and enjoy the moment.

  1. Birthday party.

What better way to celebrate another year of life than by gathering your best friends and throwing a hot tub party? You can choose a theme like a beach party with giant beach balls, inflatable palm trees, and colourful decorations. Fresh cocktails would suit nicely.

For a tropical themed party, you can add some floral necklaces, pineapples, flamingos, and of course, mini umbrellas to top your delicious cocktails inspired by tropical flavours like coconut, mango, and pineapple.

A luxurious birthday party can also be your theme with champagne, fine appetisers, and elegant décor such as candles, metallic tones, and of course, luxurious robes for your guests to get comfortable and enjoy the evening.

  1. Hen do.

Hen parties are the best opportunity to have fun with your friends before you tie the knot. But going from pub to pub or staying at a hotel might be too much for you. Especially when you can have all the fun in a comfortable environment and with a hot tub included.

All you need to do is choose the theme for your decoration, and of course, find the best entertainment and cocktails. If you want to enjoy the evening without worrying about a thing, Trez Entertainment has the solution. With a DJ hire, mobile bar hire, and hot tub hire. All you need to do is find a catering service, and you are good to go.

Your guests will enjoy the night dancing to their favourite songs; a professional DJ will know what everyone loves. Plus, you can tailor the cocktail menu and include a personalised one to make the party unique or match the drinks with your party theme. All while you relax in a hot tub and enjoy your last single days and have fun with your friends.

  1. Housewarming Party.

Housewarming parties are usually the same; you bring something to congratulate the new homeowner, share a drink, appetisers, do a tour of the house and politely leave. But if you are inviting your close friends and you wish for a real party to enjoy and celebrate the achievement of moving to a new home, you can do it with a hot tub hire.

Hot tubs are a space to be close with your friends, the warm water is relaxing, and if you mix it with some cool music, great food, and your favourite beverage, you got yourself a real party and a memorable gathering for everyone.

  1. Graduation party.

Achievements like graduations are more than enough reason to celebrate. You spend hours, days, and years committed to succeeding in your career, and when you finally graduate, all you want to do is celebrate big time. But dinner parties tend to be always the same; if you rather celebrate with your soon to be colleagues in a relaxed atmosphere, a hot tub hire is for you.

So put out the graduation decorations, balloons and graduation gowns. Prepare a playlist with the most popular songs, organise food, and have some beverages for everyone. You are starting a new stage of life, and as you end your days of study, you should have a moment to have fun and carry on with the rest of your life.

A hot tub can be the perfect reason to gather with friends and family; there is no need to have an event to hire one. Everyone will want to come and join the fun and come to your house. The best part is you do not need to move a thing; if you hire your hot tub with Trez Entertainment, we take care of setting it up.

We review the best party themes for your event in 2021

2021 has brought us hope and the possibility of celebrating as we used to do. With restrictions easing around the world, we are all preparing to have the time of our lives. And if you are looking for inspiration, we have the best themes for your event.

Whether you are organizing a wedding, an anniversary party, or a birthday, you must always give your event a theme. Once you have a theme, it will be easier to pick your invitations and event décor. Keep in mind that a theme can also help you provide your event with an overall aesthetic.

Statement lighting.

Lighting has the power to create the atmosphere you need for your event. You can change the formality, the colour, and light up the spaces you want to improve. And there are many options to light up your party, from giant LED light up letters to pretty fairy lights. Rustic events can include festoon or market lights.

Hanging chandeliers are pieces of decoration that suit well formal and elegant events, such as weddings. And they come in many different styles, from classic or vintage to modern. And you can complement a beautiful with a light-up dance floor.

City-themed.

Choosing one of the many popular cities of the world is another great idea for celebrations like anniversaries or birthday parties. You can incorporate decoration that reminds you of the city you choose, typical food, and drinks. Some of the most popular cities are Paris, London, Las Vegas, New York, Dubai, and Spain.

When you choose a city, you must think about the whole experience for your guests. For example, if you are hosting a Las Vegas party, you can include casino tables, buffets, and plenty of cocktails. Your decoration can also include the typical colours of a luxurious casino and the proper lighting.

Since travel restrictions have left us without the opportunity to visit many places of the world, we can try and compensate and create a unique atmosphere for your guests to feel like they just stepped out to a different city.

Old Hollywood.

A classic theme that never gets old, who does not love to dress up and have formal attire to attend a party. You can choose colours like gold, black, burgundy, and white. Take inspiration from the 1950s and ask your attendants to dress accordingly.

Your decoration will help you set the tone for the celebration. Still, the music will be your best ally when it comes to entertaining your guests. Hire the right DJ, one that knows exactly what hits to play and keep the party going. And if you want a classic but unique entertainment choice, you can rent a Digital Jukebox. A vintage look combined with technology, the perfect item to keep your guests entertained and engaged.

Decades.

We have seen how decoration and fashion take inspiration from past decades. You can choose one as your event theme to surprise everyone and host a nostalgic celebration. For an anniversary celebration, you can choose the decade in which you got married, everyone will remember what they dressed like and the music they danced to, it will be like reliving your big day.

Birthday parties are also great celebrations to have a decade as inspiration; you can choose your favourite decade or one that reminds you of your fun and young days. For example, if you enjoyed dancing to the eighties music or you were a hippy during the sixties, why not bring back those outfits and listen to your favourite tunes.

Corporate events that you organize for your partners or coworkers are ideal for adding a decade as a theme. An anniversary of your corporation, the end of the year event, or even a fundraiser or gala can feature a theme like the 1920s. You can offer cocktails and food according to the date and ask your attendants to dress according to the decade.

Treasure hunt.

Interactive themes are ideal for corporate and social events. No matter the age, everyone loves to have a competitive activity and win a prize. The best setting for a treasure hunt is always the outdoors. You can rent a tipi tent and give your celebration a complete theme.

Tipi tents are ideal because they can link to one another and create large spaces, or you can use each for different purposes. One can serve as a preparation spot where you handle each team their instructions. Once the game ends, you can use another to set your tables and chairs for lunch or dinner.

Beach theme.

If you live far from the beach or you cannot visit it due to restrictions, you can bring the beach to your event. A beach party usually involves taking the sun and enjoying refreshing drinks, more than dipping in the water. And all you need to create the atmosphere is to add the right elements and colours; for example, you can place some towels over the grass, set parasols on your tables, and tiny parasols to your cocktails or beverages. Big beach balls and colourful decorations inspired by pineapples, palm trees, sand, and starfishes.

You can offer fresh snacks or appetizers, including fruit and veggies. And think about light and fresh food options that are easy to make and eat, like dips, sandwiches, and pasta. Drinks like iced tea and fruit juices are the best options.

Your guests can attend wearing beach attire and sunglasses. If you are organizing a kids party, you can include small inflatable pools for them to have a fresh dip in the water. There are plenty of other options for kids to have fun. You can hire an inflatable outdoor cinema and make the beach party a sleepover with popcorn and a movie.

As you can see, party themes for 2021 are all about having fun and giving your guests a unique experience. Since we have been on lockdown for over a year, we all need to have a great time and enjoy a party. We are more than sure that you will find the right theme for your event, and your guests will enjoy it. And if you need help with your decoration or entertainment, please contact us. We at Trez Entertainment are more than happy to be part of your event.
