If you’re planning a get-together for some friends, you might be at a loss when it comes to thinking up something new. The old dinner party or cocktail hour just isn’t all that exciting anymore. You want something fresh and new and interesting. Then read on for some creative party ideas.
A Bus Tour
You might throw a unique party by hiring a charter bus in DC and taking a tour around the city. Prepare some fun facts ahead of time to entertain your guests, and serve some drinks and snacks along the way. You could even make a day of it, walk around various sites and grab some lunch. Be sure to capture the day in pictures, too. Your guests will enjoy this outing immensely.
A Sporting Event
Alternately, you might host a party at a sporting event for your favorite team. Consider renting box seats so that everyone can sit together. Purchase a few souvenirs and snacks (or allow your guests to do that for themselves), and then sit back and enjoy the game.
A History Party
If you and your friends are history buffs, then a history party might be just right for you. You could hire the community gathering space at your local history center for your party and set up a tour as part of the fun. Have your guests come in historical costumes. You may specify a time period or let them choose. Provide fun historical facts about the foods you serve, the games you play and the decorations you use, too.
A Trivia Night
Finally, treat your guests to a trivia night. Divide up into teams, and host a trivia contest. You’ll have to come up with questions and rules ahead of time, but if you keep things fairly simple, your guests will have a blast competing and learning. Don’t forget snacks (and some trivia about them).
Parties don’t have to be boring or blah any longer if you try out one or more of these creative options.
