When you are beginning the planning phases for your next big birthday event, the first major step you need to take is selecting a theme. After all, most birthday events are all the same, and you want to stand out from the crowd. As a fan of all things horror and zombie, you decide on a zombie birthday jamboree. Now that you have established your party theme, all that's left to do is decide on the details and get started gathering the necessary party rentals and supplies. To get you started with your zombie birthday party planning, consider some of these options.
Try Unique Party Tables
When you are planning your party equipment rentals, one of the biggest challenges is to design your tables. You want to be sure that guests can set their food plates down on a table if they so desire, but do not necessarily want the tables to overwhelm the space either.
Probably the most unique party table rental that you can choose for your zombie birthday jamboree is a lighted table in blood red. The deep red tone of the tables will add to the deep, dark horror theme. And the fact that the red tables are lit up will add ambiance to your birthday bash.
Serve Food Fit For Zombies
No zombie birthday jamboree is complete without food offerings that fit the theme of the party. One fun way you can add another splash of blood red to your party is by getting a snow cone machine from your party rentals source, and serve red snow cones, of course.
On top of that, you can serve brain-shaped desserts (cupcakes and cookies lend themselves well to this idea. Or if you want to take it a step further, you can make severed finger cookies. You will need a lot of red food coloring for this if you want to make your severed finger cookies nice and bloody. And don't forget the almond slices for fingernails to top off this zombie finger food.
Make It A Competition
To get everyone on board with the zombie theme of your birthday bash (even those who aren't as big a fan as you are), make the party more engaging through competition. Have a best zombie costume contest.
One fun way to liven up the party is to set up a zombie dunk tank. Dunk tanks are available from most party rental companies. All you need to do is get a party-goer to volunteer as the zombie to sit in the dunk tank and place a picture of a zombie face over the dunk tank target and voila, you have yourself a zombie dunk tank.
Your birthday events are your opportunity to express yourself and your tastes and have a great time doing so. As such, take these ideas and use them as a way to jumpstart the planning for your big zombie birthday jamboree. Remember to have fun and be creative, and your birthday party will be one to remember for many years to come.
