Are hosting a royalty-themed party? That's pretty original. Are you planning a large corporate event? Perhaps you are celebrating a family member's birthday party. Whatever the reason that you have decided to host a royalty-themed party, from sending out handmade invitations to hiring a DJ, here are some ideas that might help you to plan a fun event that will be long remembered.
The Invitations - Try creating your own invitations. Buy plain white cards that come with envelopes so that you'll have a clean slate. On the front of the invitation, sketch a simple drawing of a crown. Or, to add a touch of humor to the invitation, draw two stick figures, one of a man and one of a woman. Now add a lop-sided crown to the heads of the stick figures. Words on the front of the invitation might say something like, Come To Our Royal Event or Bring Your Royal Self To Our Royal Party! On the inside of the invitation, you might consider asking your guests to dress up like a famous royal person. You'll probably see a King Henry XIII costume and maybe even a court jester as his side-kick. Remember to add a space for RSVPs so that you'll have a general idea of how many will be attending your party.
The Entertainment - Consider renting a photo booth. Have play crowns ready so that your guests can have their picture taken looking like royalty. A fun idea would be to have a guessing game where clues are given that end up with guests give the name of a particular royal person. For example, you might ask a question like, Which prince just married an American celebrity? For some real fun, look into hiring a DJ so that everybody can dance. Of course, the DJ will play music that fits the group at your party. For example, if it's a party for your teenager, the DJ will more than likely play today's popular tunes. If you are hosting an event for adults, music from many past decades will more than likely be included in the dance mix. One of the good things about having a DJ as part of your entertainment is that he or she will have the experience to get people out on the dance floor. Also, the DJ will bring his or her own equipment, so you won't have to worry about setting it up or taking it down.
