Planning a party for a male can be challenging. The average party magazine focuses on parties that are for women or children. Those events have all the thrills and frills for women and none for men. I know many think that men don’t care about parties, however I beg to differ. If there were more parties showcased for men that have just as much details as women parties, a lot of men would be more interested in sprucing up their parties. I have come up with tips for you to keep in mind when planning your guy party. Make his party GRAND and “Manulous”!!
It’s all about him. When planning his party keep your “likes” to minimum. Make a list of things he likes or that represents him and build a theme from there. Skip the flowers and think outside the box. Think masculine and strong!
Cater to his “guilty pleasures”. We all have “guilty pleasures” we like to splurge on from time to time. His might be hand rolled cigars or expensive bourbon. Whatever it is make sure you highlight those “guilty pleasures” throughout the party to make it more personalized.
Keep it simple. Unlike women, men are simple. Keep all elements of the party short, simple and stylish. Too much can be overwhelming, so make it easy for him and his guests to bask in his “guilty pleasures” without over thinking it.
Make him feel comfortable. Set the tone of his party by setting an atmosphere that is pleasing to him. If he can relax and be himself, then he will be able to enjoy his party that much more.
Seal the deal with something unthinkable. Come up with one big thing that your guy won’t see coming. Perhaps a blast from the past or something he currently enjoys that he would get a kick out of.
