Over the last few months I wrote a 10-part series about “Planning the perfect Spanish theme party”. It covers party planning, food, drink, entertainment, activities, music, decorations, invitations and favours, birthday parties and dance parties.
I give practical tips which will help you and serve you as a guide while planning your celebration from when you first think of having a party until the big day.
But beyond that, I would love you to take one most important thing away:
Your celebration is an opportunity to express yourself.
Here’s what I mean by this.
Lots of party planning advice on the web is based on “what’s the done thing”. I’m really against doing “the done thing” for the sake of it, or because everyone expects it or because you feel you have to.*
Instead of looking up such advice and starting your planning with what’s the done thing, I’d like you to start with listening in to your heart and tuning in to what you would like to do and what makes you feel great.
It’s your party after all. And if you’re happy, the people who care for you will be happy with you 🙂
To underline this I share some untypical ideas that you might find unusual, weird or random. You don’t have to follow them. But even just reading them, will spark your imagination and help you identify what you like and don’t like. In the post about birthday parties I suggest a short exercise in imagination. I encourage you to do it, no matter what occasion you’re planning.
I hope you have fun with the series and I’m here if you have any questions. Pop them in the comments and I’ll reply!
*Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying you shouldn’t follow traditions. I love traditions! But I encourage you to only follow traditions if they work for you.
If you’re planning a Spanish theme party and are interested in booking Flamenco entertainment, then browse my shows and get in touch.
I love performing at birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, charity and corporate events.
