3 Tips for Throwing a Tropical-Themed Party, Springdale, Ohio

Whether you’re throwing a fundraiser or just want to celebrate your employees and boost their morale, themed parties are a fantastic way to do it. With summer drawing closer every day, a tropical-themed party is a fun option to pursue. If this sounds like the perfect concept, here are some ideas to get the party planning process done right.

Tropical-Themed Party Planning Tips

1. Start with Large-Scale Decor

While a few knick-knacks here and there help illustrate the point, items like backdrops and props instill an immediate reaction. They’re also better for pictures! Don’t forget about the lighting either. Tiki torches are both decorative and functional! Depending on the venue and its size, LED versions may be better for safety purposes than the traditional fuel-filled type.

2. Use the Menu

Even if you have the right visuals, if the food seems out of place, it’s going to feel uneven for your guests. Seafood is perfect for the tropical theme, so ask the caterer for shrimp cocktails, crab cakes, and mini fish tacos. To keep things light and fresh, have tropical fruits like coconut, pineapple, mangoes, and bananas available as well.

3. Play the Right Music

As you may have noticed, a key aspect of party planning is about creating the right ambiance. To fill and finalize the atmosphere, make sure the playlist is filled with relevant music. There’s a wide variety of Caribbean music that will accomplish this, such as Afro-Cuban jazz, calypso, conga, and reggae, to name a few. You can keep things fresh by seeking out modern iterations, remixes, and fusion genres.
