The Future: as a party theme it’s made up of endless opportunities. Does your future look like The Jetsons? 2001: A Space Odyssey? Gattaca? Or maybe your idea of The Future is unlike anything anyone has yet dreamed up! (Although we think everyone should have a Rosie robot) Want to completely cover your venue in white or drape all the walls with fiber-optic light curtains? Do it! Or does your vision include covering almost everything in Spandex and topping the Dr. Seuss-esque table centerpieces with disco balls? Cause ours did! The sky’s the limit on this one but here are some ideas to get you started…
Theme: The Future
Description: Neon colors, pulsating lights and ambient trance music set the scene for a party reminiscent of something yet unknown. This theme would be fantastic for a corporate event centered around a new product launch or anything that calls for forward motion!
Suggested attire: Futurist – get creative! You could ask that guests wear black and then hand out glowing accessories upon arrival.
Food and Drink: International cuisine with futuristic presentation; think neon stands and lots of varying elevation. Serve drinks in glowing glassware and include some neon shooters! If your event is alcohol-free, consider serving fruit juices with exotic garnishes or extravagant straws.
Décor: Guests enter through a tunnel flanked with search lights. Dry ice would be a nice effect for the entrance. Tables are covered in spandex and centerpieces are up-lit with neon lights. Fiber-optic light curtains adorn the walls .
Entertainment: Futuristic circus performers would surely fit the bill! Can anyone say ‘Cirque du Soliel’ act?? Mimes, psychics and musicians add a nice touch either at stations or as strolling entertainment.
Music: Consider hiring a Video Jockey for your musical entertainment as s/he can incorporate futuristic video with top 40 songs, allowing for dancing! Be sure your guests have practiced their robot skills!
What would your futuristic party include?
