Let me share with you what I did on my last birthday… I threw a joint party with two of my friends to make it triple the fun! I’ve known Pre and Ryan since we were in high school and college, and for our joint celebration, I took the opportunity to share my love for crafting with friends who don’t consider themselves creative.
We came up with a “fetch” Mean Girls theme (who doesn’t love this movie, right?) and guess what DIY project the guests made? If you thought about Regina George’s facial scrub…you’re partly right! We provided a craft station with washi tapes, stickers, label makers, and markers that guests could use to label their own body scrub containers. The guests were initially teasing me that they weren’t up for the challenge, but once they got their hands on the materials, it was obvious they were having so much fun!
The party was even more special because we held it at the old Hey Kessy shop on Esteban Abada Street! Aside from the craft activity, guests enjoyed a ‘90s-themed quiz night session, ate cake, drank beer, and got up and gave their all while singing karaoke. It was a great night of dancing and singing—it made me remember all the parties and concerts we would attend in college.
If you’re thinking of throwing your own craft party, here are some tips to make it more memorable.
1 Think of your guests. Are they all girls, just boys, or mixed? How old are your attendees? If there are kids attending your party, are the materials and tools child-friendly?
2 Choose a craft project that people can use and only takes a few steps to make. Soap making is the perfect example.
3 Don’t forget to include materials that guests can use to personalize their projects. Prepare washi tapes, sticker labels, and markers.
4 Give prizes to the more creative projects! That way, your guests would be encouraged to do their best.
