How do you organize a costume party?
The first step is to define what the mood of your costume party will be like. Will it be something more relaxed and fun, with lots of colors and brightness (right in the carnival style) or more mysterious and sophisticated, like a real royalty ball? It is from this choice that you can define all the details of your party, as the place that will be held the event.
But before you close the masquerade party, you also need to have at hand the number of guests who will attend that day by your side. Ideally, the space should be proportional to the guests, so that everyone is comfortable during your party. Not too tight, not too big.
Once you have defined the style, location and number of guests, you can move on to the second step: the decoration of the masquerade ball.
Decoration masquerade ball
As we speak, there are endless possibilities to decorate your costume party. However, the most common is the style of royalty dance, super sophisticated and glamorous.
The colors most used in this style of decorating masks are gold and black, which highlight the mystery of the environment. The birthday girl should wear gala dresses or suits that match the masks, as well as the guests.
The masquerade ball is also known for its exaggeration. So you can use feathers, mix colors and striking details to create a striking decoration.
And if the idea is to bet on the carnival atmosphere, let that be even more prominent. However, change the black for super vibrant tones, as a way to ensure that the atmosphere is more relaxed. It’s even worth having the masquerade party outdoors, with loud music and lots of fun!
An indispensable factor in your decoration is the masquerade cake. It is the focus of your decoration, so make sure all his details are impeccable.
As most custom cakes are expensive, invest in the scenographic cake and serve the guests a cake of your choice. It’s easier and the party scene remains impeccable until the end.
In order not to miss, we indicate you to use all the elements of the party decoration in your costume cake, so harmony prevails. Below, you can see that the cake is in the party color palette (black, gold and red) and is decorated with red roses, to represent the candies on the candy table.
Speaking of sweets, besides choosing delicious flavors, surprise your guests with creative presentations that have to do with the chosen birthday theme. How about making cupcakes decorated with a mini prom mask? They also contribute a lot to the decoration.
Capriche in the details of the guests’ table
The trick to organize a beautiful table for the guests is to detail and know how to balance the colors of your party. Remember that your party needs to have harmony in every detail, so take special care to add everything in the right measure.
Write down everything you’ll need for the guest table:
- Cups and bowls;
- Napkin holder;
- Amazing centerpiece.
Special tip: leave the highlight of the table in the center of the table, however, so that the center does not disturb the view of the guests. It can’t be something at eye level, or you use a super high center, or leave it low, just with flowers.
Invitation to a masquerade ball
Always make your birthday invitation after setting the party decoration. In this way, you can add elements that generate great expectation in the guests.
The masquerade invitation, besides indicating the basic data of your party (date, place and time), should indicate everything that the guest needs for the day, such as the style of clothing that the guests should wear and whether or not you will provide the masks. Leave everything well explained so you have no doubts.
In the above masquerade invitation, for example, the birthday boy delivered a custom box with the mask that the guest should wear inside. However, this more elaborate type of invitation is very common at a 15-year-old masquerade ball. If you want to invest in something simpler, you can make the traditional invitation. It also works very well for the day.
Tips for choosing a beautiful prom mask
Your prom mask must be stunning. Use sparkles and details that make it unique at the party. But remember to match the mask to your outfit. It will be part of a set!
In the case of the 15 year old masquerade ball, change the mask at the beginning of the party to waltz.
Avoid the models you need to hold. They may get in the way during the party. The models you hold in your hairstyle are more practical for getting the whole masquerade ball with her – and not just the congratulations.
“What about the male costume ball?”you must be wondering. It’s simple: the tip is the same. There is no difference in choice. You can define it in detail that suits you best.
To ensure that all guests wear a prom mask, leave a separate table with different models for each to choose the option they like best.
If you prefer, you can also choose a standard template and place each mask on the guests’ table, so there is no confusion when choosing the template. This can happen during the masquerade ball 15 years, for example.
