How to Make Your Event More Unique
Do you have an event coming up? Maybe it’s a birthday party, a conference, or a family reunion. Whatever the event is, you likely want it to be something unique – something people will remember after they leave. But how do you do this? How can you make your event something that is unlike similar events? Here are just a few suggestions to get you started.
Look at What Everyone Else is Doing
First, before you can make your event stand out, you need to learn what others are doing. By doing this, you’ll be better able to make changes to your event that help make it more unique. For example, let’s say you are hosting a team-building event for your company. Where do other companies typically host their similar events? What sort of activities do they do? When do they usually have them, and how long do they last? The more information you can gather about similar events, the better off you’ll be. Then you can decide which aspects you want to include, and which ones you want to do differently.
Choose an Interesting Theme
A great way to make your event or party more unique is with a great theme. Themes tie an entire event together, and if you choose a good one, it can help to give you more ideas for how to improve the party. For example, if you were going to have a 1920s theme for your event, everyone would dress in the proper attire, and you could have music, food and drinks based on that time period. Now rather than just having a regular event, you’ve made your event stand out by simply choosing to give it a theme. Of course, not every theme is appropriate for every type of event, so you’ll have to give it some thought and see what makes sense for your event.
Move the Venue
Another great way to spice up an event is by changing the venue. For instance, rather than having your team-building event in your business’s conference room, why not go to a local restaurant with a private room? Or, rather than having family game night in your basement, go out to an Escape the Room location. Changing the venue might end up costing you more money, so you’ll have to weigh this against the benefits. But if you’ve been hosting the same event in the same place for a while, sometimes a change of scenery can go a long way.
Create Some Custom Apparel
For many events it makes sense to have everyone there dressed the same. If this is the case for your event, you should look into creating some customer apparel. For instance, if you’re having a family reunion, you could create a t-shirt for everyone to wear at the event. Not only does this make everyone feel like a part of the group, but it gives them something fun to take home and remember the event. Or, let’s say you are throwing an event for your sorority at college. With some custom sorority apparel, you can make your events stand out from the others, and make the group feel even closer.
Finally, even if you go with custom apparel, you can also giveaway some other items. Giveaways are a great way to close out a party, and leave everyone feeling a little bit happier. But rather than making your giveaways something simple, you can give something that is more unique to your event. For instance, if your event is a high school prom, and the theme is “One Night in Paris”, you could give away photo frames that are in the shape of the Eiffel Tower, rather than simple rectangular ones. This makes your giveaway just a little more special, and more likely to remind your guests of the event after they leave.
Thinking Outside the Box
The key as to how to make your event more unique is thinking outside the box. If you really want your party to stand out, you can’t do the things you’ve always done, and you can’t do what other people are doing. Be willing to try out some new ideas, even though they might not go over well. At the very least you’ll learn from your mistakes, and you’ll have more information on how to throw a better event the next time the opportunity arises. Hopefully this guide was able to give you something to think about and your next event will be something no one ever forgets.
