What's a good way to make my birthday party guests feel exclusive?
I’m turning the big 3–0 in a month and having a big blowout (not poop, hopefully. Though I heard that can happen with age). It’s sort of like MTV’s “Super Sweet Sixteen” only older, slower, and a little fatter. So far, I’m sending some cool invites that look like event tickets, wrapping them in some sparkly ribbon sealed with monogrammed sealing wax. Most of the stuff I had already, so it sounds fancy and high dollar, but was really done on a dime.
The big part of the party is that I’ve got a stretch SUV driving us around town. Before the limo arrives everyone will gather at my house for cake and pre-game drinking. I’ll be giving out party favor bags with some things from the 80’s (the decade that produced me) and some personalized items (slap bracelets, garbage pail kids trading cards, personalized cookies and maybe some alcoholic miniatures).
So, in addition to these things, are there any ideas you have about what may really “wow” party guests? Something somewhat easily accessible and not too pricey. I’m all for homemade stuff and dollar store finds.
If anyone would be willing to act as a convincing mystic/ fortune teller for cheap and lives in MD, you would get a modest payment and the biggest piece of cake!
Thanks! And to whoever has the best idea, you’ll get a moment of appreciative silence and recognition during my party. Amen.
