Fun Party Ideas

Throwing a party? Serving the same old wine and cheese and listening to the same music you did when you were a teenager is a sure way to bore your guests.

The staff at Seattle Party Bus Rentals has compiled a list of our favorite new party ideas that can easily jazz up any event. Make your next bash one that will make you known as the party expert among your friends.


Edible Flowers
Flowers that can be used in cooking are the new rage among chefs wanting to spice up an old recipe. Not all flowers are edible and some can make you sick, so make sure the ones you use are safe to eat. Some edibles are: apple blossoms, carnations, chamomile, chrysanthemums, cornflower, dandelion, daylilies, gardenia, gladiolas, hyacinth, jasmine, lavender, lilac, orchids, primrose, roses, snap dragons, sunflowers and violets. Sprinkle some on salads, add them to a dip or use the sweet varieties to make your old dessert stand-by new and totally unique. You can also use them as garnishes on a plate or sprinkle them over the table as a colorful accent. Pick up a bunch in your grocer’s produce department or grow them yourself. If you plan on using flowers as meals, never use a chemical based fertilizer.


Design Your Own Drink
Forget the beer, wine and two kinds of liquor rule for parties. Instead, design a signature drink that defines you and serve it exclusively to your guests. Carefully choose the liquor, color, embellishments and type of serving glass. Look online for many trendy drink recipes such as a mojitos, mint julips, appletini cosmos and much more! Your signature drink may just be the new hit in the bar scene!


It’s All Fun and Games
Pull your old games out of the closet and set them up around the apartment for your guests to play. Monopoly, Risk, Trivial Pursuit, Cranium, Charades, Pictionary and Twister can be a good mix of games for strategy, intellect and physical ability. If you don’t have these games, you can create an old-fashioned carnival feel with darts, bozo buckets and pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey.


Cookie Decorating
Everyone loves cookies, and decorating them is even more fun. Provide cookie dough (sugar works best) and a variety of toppings including frosting, sprinkles, candy chips, colored sugars and any other baking goods you think your guests will enjoy. Everyone can gather around a table and decorate together, encourage your guests to chat and get to know one another. Cupcakes also work great, just bake them ahead of time.
