If you’re a part of the coding or tech community and you have a milestone coming up that you’d like to celebrate, organizing your party around a computer theme is a fun and interesting choice! Continue reading for some tips on how to make yours the best it can be!
Craft well-designed and tech-oriented digital invitations.
The first impressions your potential guests will form of your party will be based off of the invitations you send out. What better way to reel them in than flexing your design skills and interest in tech by creating interesting and relevant ones?
Choose a relevant color scheme and matching decorations.
Blues, greens, and neutral colors are great choices for your color schemes. You can choose or order a banner that is related to your party theme as well – for example, one that says “Happy Birthday!” (or something similar) spelled out in keyboard squares or binary.
If your party will have assigned seating, you could create tags for the guests’ tables that feature a picture of an open laptop with their names and assigned seats. For an extra flair, you could orient the guests’ cutlery in paper or plastic sleeves that display fun sayings, such as “have a byte,” or design placemats that look like mousepads.
Order food items that relate to the theme of the party.
For example, you could order cupcakes that have a power on/off symbol on each of them. Another interesting choice are cookies that are iced and decorated to look like keyboard squares. If your party will feature a cake, you could choose to order a custom-designed one that will look like a PC tower, monitor, and mouse on top of a circular or square base that is designed to look similarly to a desk.
Choose interesting party favors!
Everyone loves party favors, and by providing ones that are related to your theme choice, you will help your guests have more fun! Order laptop stickers, mousepads, mice, flash drives, or other interesting computer accessories. It’s your choice on whether to order custom designed favors that represent your event, but chances are that your guests will be more likely to use generic (but still visually appealing) favors on a regular basis after your party.
Parties are meant to be fun and engaging celebrations. Regardless of the event you’re celebrating, there are so many ways to express your love of computers in your party planning! We hope this post has given you some inspiration for your next big get-together.
